Lilach Power and Gina Berman are elevating the game for female entrepreneurs in Arizona’s medical cannabis market. The co-owners of The Giving Tree dispensary, they have two locations in Phoenix and Mesa, offering top-shelf cannabis products as well as yoga and healing therapies, plus a 1000-plant indoor grow facility.
The two first met through Power’s husband, who worked with Berman as a physician in the ER. Both women were expecting children at the time, and bonded over motherhood as well as their similar entrepreneurial mindset. They quickly began work on several business ideas in the alternative therapy space, but none would stick financially. Still, the two had their hearts set on developing a business to help people live better.
