There are two young ladies in Denver, Colorado who are quietly building a small empire especially designed to help the cannabis business sector build their brands and increase business. Though they both admit to smoking weed occasionally, I get the strong impression that Olivia Mannix and Jennifer (Jen) DeFalco spend the preponderance of their waking hours straight and focused on their business goals, which just happen to involve marijuana instead of toothpaste. Cannabrand is these ladies' real world extension of what they strongly believe is an enormous opportunity, the rising cannabis industry's need for Branding, Marketing and all the ingredients like strategy, website, graphic and creative development. - The Huffington Post

Jennifer DeFalco and Olivia Mannix, both 25 years old and filled with the superb, youthful exuberance that entails, these gals met while at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Boulder's a great town to meet and make a friend, they chime chirpily. Jen is the creative mind behind Cannabrand, enjoying the imagineering for clients and Olivia is more strategic and overall business oriented. They make a highly complimentary pair of entrepreneuresses. - The Huffington Post

Step into a Colorado pot dispensary at random, and you'll long for the luxuries of the D.M.V. Metal bars cover windows. Vinyl signs are tacked to walls. Guys in hoodie sweatshirts greet you from behind the counter. Even the act of ordering the product itself is borderline absurd. What grown adult can respectfully walk into a store and ask for an eighth of Green Krack and a nub of Big Buddha Cheese, please? But that experience is changing, thanks to a new breed of entrepreneur in Colorado, young, ambitious and often female, that is trying to reach a more sophisticated clientele in everything from language to packaging to social events. - The New York Times - Olivia Mannix and Jennifer DeFalco pictured

CBD may help prevent cancer from spreading, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco reported in 2007. Cannabidiol stops cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1, the study, published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, found. Cancer cells make more copies of this gene than non-cancerous cells, and it helps them spread through the body. - Business Insider - Olivia Mannix and Jennifer DeFalco pictured

"We're weeding out the stoners," said Olivia Mannix, the 25-year-old co-founder of a start-up called Cannabrand, an advertising agency devoted exclusively to marketing marijuana. "We want to show the world that normal, professional, successful people consume cannabis." Colorado became the first of two states to legalize recreational marijuana sales this year, paving the way for millions in tax revenue, and a new kind of consumer. That is why, on a recent weekend, Ms. Mannix and her co-founder, Jennifer DeFalco, were camped out in Aspen for a pot-themed (and pot-induced) brainstorming session. - The New York Times

Marijuana may be able to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, a study led by Kim Janda of the Scripps Research Institute suggests. The 2006 study, published in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics, found that THC, the active chemical in marijuana, slows the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that makes them. These plaques are what kill brain cells and cause Alzheimer's. - Business Insider - Olivia Mannix, Jennifer DeFalco and Meg Sanders pictured
