Lisa Mauriello and Paper Crane Cannabis:

As March unfolds, we embark on Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the remarkable achievements and contributions of women throughout history. In recent years, the cannabis industry has seen a surge in female entrepreneurs and leaders, breaking barriers and reshaping an industry traditionally dominated by men. In the heart of Massachusetts, one trailblazer stands out: Lisa Mauriello of Paper Crane Cannabis, a shining example of empowerment and innovation.

The Massachusetts Social Equity Program:

Massachusetts has been at the forefront of cannabis legalization, and the state’s commitment to social equity within the industry is commendable. The Social Equity Program aims to address the historical injustices related to cannabis prohibition by providing opportunities for individuals disproportionately impacted by past marijuana policies, including women. 

As co-founder of Paper Crane Cannabis, the first Social Equity outdoor cultivator to receive a license in MA, Lisa Mauriello has not only embraced this opportunity but has become a driving force in the cannabis industry and movement towards equality, positive change and inclusivity.

Organic Outdoor Sungrown Cultivation Techniques:

One of the unique aspects of Paper Crane Cannabis that sets it apart in the industry is its commitment to organic and regenerative outdoor sungrown cultivation techniques and to locally sourcing their organic inputs. Mauriello’s passion for sustainability and environmental consciousness has driven her and Boey, her husband who’s the other co-founder at Paper Crane and also a participant in the Social Equity Program, to develop innovative methods that not only produce high-quality cannabis but also minimize the ecological footprint of cultivation.

Paper Crane’s outdoor sungrown cultivation involves harnessing the power of the sun to nurture cannabis plants in their natural environment. This technique not only produces robust and flavorful buds but also reduces the need for artificial lighting and energy consumption associated with indoor cultivation. The result is a product that resonates with conscious consumers seeking a more sustainable and eco-friendly choice.

Empowering Communities Through Cannabis:

Lisa Mauriello and Paper Crane Cannabis are not just cultivating cannabis; they are sowing the seeds of change in their community. By participating in the Social Equity Program, Mauriello is actively contributing to the empowerment of individuals who have been disproportionately affected by the war on drugs. This commitment to social responsibility aligns with the broader goals of Women’s History Month, celebrating women who strive for positive change and equality.
