This company wants to be the Mary Kay of the marijuana industry


There's dispensaries, weed delivery, CBD pet snacks, and now there's the weed industry's answer to Mary Kay make-up parties.

Mary Jane University (MJU) is getting into the business of hosting in-home parties to educate women about weed and its various uses. We met up with one of the founders at the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition in Los Angeles, California.

"If you have any questions about cannabis and how you may be able to incorporate it into your wellness regimen, we can definitely answer that for you," says Frances Schauwecker, one of MJU's co-founders. "We bring it in a fun, interactive environment."

They offer classes/education in a variety of subjects including everything from "Blunt Rolling 101" to "The Canna Bliss Spa Experience." Similar to Mary Kay and Avon make-up parties, each house party has products for sale.

"This is the Yummi Karma bubble bath here, and this is the high-biscus body lotion," says Schauwecker. "So you're going to get pain relief beautifully packaged, and it's Yummi Karma."

The 3-year-old company has 10 consultants so far, and it's looking for more. If you join, the company says you can make 15 percent commission on sales from your house parties.
