Fuego 4.20

Fuego 4.20 Collaboration

The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce was founded to provide entrepreneurs at all levels of business development with relevant education, resources, tools and networking opportunities for success. 

One of the most difficult aspects of business success in the cannabis industry is an effective marketing campaign. There are several components to marketing campaigns. The most overlooked is ads in online and print magazines.

Advertising restrictions and regulations for cannabis companies can be insurmountable obstacles. There are less than one hundred cannabis related magazines. Each falls into specific categories ranging from news, culture, wellness, entertainment, etc. Each is focused on the interests of their consumer base such as hemp, cbd, cannabis, edibles, etc. Advertising can broaden your reach but can be cost prohibitive for businesses with smaller marketing budgets. 

Fuego 4.20 recently did their soft launch. Fuego 4.20 was created by Diana Ramos, and is a BIPOC women owned and operated magazine. It offers a balance of national and local cannabis news and events, plant medicine and wellness, lifestyle and culture. (see Stories

What stands out most is Fuego 4.20 Small Business Spotlight and their Fire Starter Series. In Spanish Fuego means “fire” as well as “passion”. The Fire Starter Series profiles BIPOC women in cannabis who bring passion and commitment to the industry and the cannabis community. We encourage Chamber members to submit their story for the Fire Starter Series. fuegomagazine420@gmail.com Your journey and your voice will inspire other women. 

Being featured in the Fire Starter Series will broaden your exposure, reaching a consumer/client base that you may not be reaching through social media. Diana Ramos and her staff’s background and expertise is in cannabis publications. They have been involved in developing, content, marketing, sales, and getting cannabis print magazines onto shelves. They bring their expertise and “Fire” to Fuego 4.20.

Their marketing strategy and implementation is targeted towards a consumer/client base that aligns with that of Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce’s membership. Fuego 4.20’s focus on social equity and women in cannabis, and the quality of their content resonates with the Chamber’s mission. Fuego 4.20 is destined for success as it launches and distributes its print publication in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, New York and Oklahoma. 

The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce is cautious with endorsements. The Chamber is not only endorsing Fuego 4.20, we are collaborating with them. We believe our Fuego 4.20 collaboration can be beneficial to our members’ marketing strategy. Membership in the Chamber includes a social marketing workshop and now our collaboration with Fuego 4.20 enables us to offer a substantial discount on advertising. 

We are Invested in Your Success!

Brianna’s Insights

Brianna’s position as the National Executive Director of The Women’s Cannabis Chamber of Commerce and Founder and CEO of SunBaked Goods provides her with insights into multiple aspects of the cannabis industry.

Too many companies forget, or fail to realize, how deeply rooted culture is within cannabis. A majority of conversations I have had recently revolve around the frustration felt by employees who seek genuine leaders, but feel as if their requests are falling on deaf ears. With the industry professionalizing at a rapid pace, it’s crucial for recruiters to understand that leading a successful team in another industry cannot be a copy-paste experience when developing teams in the cannabis space.

This is an industry that is on a path to become substantially lucrative, but was built by the efforts and sacrifices of many who must not just be included, but made whole. The current landscape of corporate cannabis lends itself to those with no prior industry experience securing leadership roles because “they have done it before, and can do it again” in another arena. But this line of thinking does a disservice to the progress made by those who have put in years of hard work to build the infrastructure now being relied upon by these organizations.

These are professionals who have knocked down barriers, fought for reform, and continue to lead through their unique perspectives that can only come from lived experiences. To create successful teams, it is important to remember that while there are similarities between managing any type of business, this is still an incredibly nuanced industry with its own complexities. Companies who wish to be at the forefront of innovation should start by valuing the importance of having a team that reflects the incredible diversity within the cannabis community.

Destiny SimonDestiny Simon is one of those women. She is a founder of Canna Events by Leo

“Canna Events was founded in 2020 due to the overwhelming request from clients, organizations, and cannabis supporters to help be connected with industry resources. Now we have a team dedicated solely to meeting those needs while planning incredible events.

When we first got involved with the cannabis industry we immediately noticed the amount of vultures & frauds trying to come into the industry is absolutely insane! We work to not just serve the cannabis industry but to protect the industry with these three steps;

Elevating Educating Empowering.”

Launching an event company during a pandemic would appear to be a difficult task. Destiny,  (Amanda and Jess) have produced innovative and interesting virtual events. Canna Events by Leo is energizing and educating the cannabis community in Kansas City.

I have over a decade of experience in the accounting field, working in positions ranging from basic data entry up to auditing & reconciling multi-million dollar corporate accounts. This has been a priceless opportunity to gain a vast knowledge of not only how to implement and complete day to day tasks, but also to see the effects of those tasks on a corporate level!

I have taken all my knowledge, experience, passion for accounting, and unquenchable thirst for knowledge and focused it on the Cannabis Industry! I am passionate about the cannabis movement as I have seen first hand the incredible benefits of medicinal usage. I am not only an expert of cannabis accounting services but also a supporter of this revolutionary movement in the US today.
