Today we are honored to have Jessica Arent. Jessica is the CEO of Promesa, LLC which originated to meet the supply chain needs of the Tequila industry, from Hectare to Sale. She also co-founded the Denver-based Cannabis Diversity Council and Alliances in May of 2016, which advocates for women and minorities in the industry and provides mentorship programs across the industry’s various sectors, legal counsel, employment opportunities, start-up coaching and outlets to learn and grow careers within the industry.
After a life changing and career damaging car accident, Jessica found herself regrouping and took a job that turned out to be very fortuitous, when the company she walked into happened to expose Jessica to the cultivation, extraction and production of finished goods in the hemp industry. That coincidence changed her life and direction. As an advocate for plant science medicine, Jessica is immersed in the science of cannabis and CBD, which she believes will not only change the world but how we view healthcare. She is waging a global fight for everyone to have the right to choose alternative, natural wellness over pharmaceuticals, while building the most impactful, research-led product program in the U.S. and Mexico, from seed to sale.
