She’s the co-creator of That Glass Jar ™ , a cannabis-infused topical, and founder of Women Abuv Ground (WAG), a professional networking organization dedicated to educating and empowering minority women in the emerging cannabis industry. By providing resources and supporting women of color in the cannabis industry, the organization is creating a diversified culture, celebrating the brilliance of women entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders.
As women in weed are projected to be a dominant force in the billion-dollar marijuana industry, the organization is committed to shaping tomorrow’s cannabis leaders. More importantly, Women Abuv Ground (WAG) is dedicated to increasing the presence of women of color in cannabis-related businesses. The organization’s goal is not only to recruit diverse faces, but more importantly, cultivate cannabis leaders to work and serve America’s minority communities.
Money became interested in the cannabis industry, especially as the legalization of medical marijuana was picking up steam in various states across the country. She wanted to be on the ground floor of a new frontier in alternative medicine – that is, a “woman in weed” on a Wall Street level.
Born in Seoul, Korea, and raised in Monterey, CA, Money began her research of the cannabis industry and became very interested in the healing properties of marijuana. As she traveled to cannabis-related social events and conventions, she learned the ins and outs of the cannabis business. Unlike some cannapreneurs, Money decided to specialize in the use of cannabis for health and beauty reasons – that is, oils, topicals and creams -- forgoing the cultivation route or running a medical marijuana dispensary.
As the “green rush” of the cannabis business explodes, Money believes it’s important that minority women have a presence in shaping the next frontier of the marijuana business on a Wall Street level. Whether for work, for play or for well-being, medical and recreational marijuana use will change the face and many facets of Corporate America.
Starting with its LA chapter, Women Abuv Ground (WAG) is growing, and increasing its reach around the country. The organization offers monthly meetings, workshops and leadership retreats to connect its members to key industry leaders and resources beneficial to the growth of the weed business. Women Abuv Ground’s networking events offer engagement with key industry leaders and investors to facilitate the success of minority women in cannabis-focused companies.
With a mission to engage, to inspire and to motivate its members, Women Abuv Ground (WAG) hopes to be the leading organization of diverse women in cannabis industry, and help steer the next frontier of the “green rush.”

That Glass Jar ™ Money co-created That Glass Jar ™ with cannapreneur Michelle Bell. That Glass Jar ™ is an organic, herbal cannabis-infused cream that cures Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, commonly known as MRSA. Normally MRSA infections occur in people staying in health facilities like hospitals, nursing homes and dialysis centers. Money created That Glass Jar ™ for a friend – that is, Dutch actress/model Princess Inge Hazebrook of the Netherlands -- whose breast was infected with MRSA, and there no treatment in sight. After four days of using the cannabis-based cream, Princess Inge was miraculously healed. Her doctors called it a miracle. Word spread about That Glass Jar ™ as Princess Inge shared pictures of her recovery on Facebook, and soon other friends and followers wanted the cream in “that glass jar.” The name stuck. Believing in the power of organic healing, Money is set to officially launch That Glass Jar ™ in the summer of 2016.
That Glass Jar ™ has been an effective treatment for drug-resistant bacteria like MRSA. The cannabis-infused cream proves scientific studies that show that cannabis have antibacterial properties. That Glass Jar ™ can treat a variety of ailments from sun burns, eczema and psoriasis to arthritis, fibromyalgia and some forms of skin cancer.
