Highlighting women as powerful entrepreneurs, cultivators, and activists

Lady Buds: A documentary about women in cannabis

Chris J. Russo is the director and producer of the feature documentary Lady Buds, the story of six courageous women who come out of the shadows of the cannabis underground to enter the legal, regulated market in California and all the struggles they face. 

"In making Lady Buds, I wanted to portray women in an empowered and confident light — as powerful entrepreneurs, cultivators, and activists. I think we need to continue to create content that helps destigmatize the plant and highlight the diverse communities and consumers who are a part of this industry, culture, and history," Chris said.

"I've always enjoyed how cannabis enhances my creativity, my experience listening to music, and how it helps me be mindful and in the present moment. It's brought together communities I've been a part of, and I make it a part of my wellness routine. I loved learning how to grow my own cannabis garden and how to care for the plants. The fact that cannabis can bring out joy and levity in people is a beautiful thing."
