Speaker Year | Toronto 2019 | Toronto 2022

As a former social worker for the city of Detroit, Reena has been advocating for social justice most of her life with much of her work focused on the inequities in the Cannabis industry and society on the whole. Pairing advocacy and her culinary skills, Reena created High Society Supper Club – a cannabis education and events company.  Her aim is  to help normalize cannabis while providing user friendly cannabis education and a platform for much needed dialogue and deeper conversations around equity.  Reena’s ganja roots run deep beginning with her grandmother who smoked ganja spiritually and used it to make various salves and remedies and many of her family members were victims to the War on Drugs making her participation in the industry is both personal and political.  High Society Supper Club is the recipient of Now Magazine’s Readers Choice Award for Best Edibles Maker, and has been featured on various media outlets including the CBC, Zoomer Media’s ONE Network, The Globe and Mail, The New York Times, The Canadian Press,  Flare, The National to name a few.  In addition to The High Society Supper Club, Reena is one of the founding members of The Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty,  a current Board Member of the African Canadian and Caribbean Association of Hamilton, Community Liaison for The Organja Society and a member of the Canadian Women in Cannabis.
