Creative entrepreneur April Pride, is the founder of Van der Pop, a female focused cannabis brand. She is also an advocate for women who choose to pursue cannabis as a profession and for personal consumption. In 2016, April launched Van der Pop, which quickly became the leading brand offering cannabis information and products for North American women. In 2017, Pride negotiated Van der Pop’s acquisition to Toronto-based Hiku Brands, which, in turn, was acquired by Canadian based Canopy Growth, the world’s largest cannabis company.
