CORINNE POWELL, Treasurer
Corinne Powell moved to Mendocino County in 2015 to join the world-renowned cannabis culture. Several months later, the first of a new wave of cannabis laws were passed and everything changed. Corinne is dedicated to the lawful use of medical cannabis as she has seen a myriad benefits in herself and countless others.
She is a California native, raised in Stockton, a product of the public schools and graduate of the University of California, Berkeley.
Her working career has included: Private Secretary, Paralegal, self-employed Massage Therapist, educational non-profit founder, international ophthalmic capital equipment VP of Sales and Marketing, and surgical practice manager.
Corinne has been using cannabis medicinally since 1973, when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She has always grown her own plants. After Prop 215 she formed a collective to legally cultivate plants for others as well.
Corinne currently cultivates a licensed 10,000 sf site on a 40-acre parcel in the Mendocino coastal hills. She is dedicated to helping shape regulatory development in Mendocino County and intends to continuously advocate for the small, craft cannabis farmer who grows with integrity. She is particularly interested in truthful and accurate education about cannabis via the development of cannatourism and hopes to participate in that sector of the industry.
