In a recent feature on Yahoo! Finance, Plena Global’s newest team member Dr. Raquel Peyraube tops the list as an innovator in the world of cannabis.
Yahoo Finance released a list of the 20 Women Set To Dominate The International Cannabis Space In 2019 and Plena Global’s newest addition Dr. Raquel Peyraube is at the top. Originally from Uruguay, Dr. Peyraube specializes in endocannabinology and Plena Global is proud to have her on board as Director of Public Policy and Health.
As founder and president of the Uruguayan Society of Endocannabinology, a board member of the International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines and a member of the International Cannabinoids Research Society Dr. Peyraube also advises drug and cannabis-related government organizations around the globe.
Dr. Peyraube is among 19 other women that are fiercely paving the way for female representation in the industry. When asked about the role of women in the cannabis industry, Peyraube says: “The participation of women in the legalization of cannabis and the development of the industry can give this story a differentiating twist: we may see more sensitive and humane policies that effectively take into account the ethical principles of public health and a less aggressive industry and business.”
Plena Global congratulates all of the strong women that are moving the cannabis industry in a positive direction and is extraordinarily honored to have Dr. Raquel Peyraube as part of the team.
