There’s no shortage of incredible tales within the cannabis industry, but we would be remiss to not admit that Valerie Leveroni Corral, founder of WAMM, might have the best one. Valerie’s story is one of the many, many examples of how women have shaped the modern cannabis industry. 

In 1973, 20-year-old Valerie Leveroni Corral was involved in an automobile accident that left her with brain damage, epilepsy, and debilitating migraines. To find relief, she began cultivating her own medical cannabis. That’s where the story truly begins. Multiple arrests, DEA raids, the inception of Proposition 215, free cannabis for the underprivileged, and so much more. Hear the story in her own words below.

Now, WAMM has teamed up with Farmer and the Felon, an industry leader in equity advocacy, to bring you three new strains: Cherry Punch, Flo White, and Blue City Diesel. Each one better than the last.
