The state of Virginia officially legalized the consumption and possession of recreational marijuana in July 2021, a momentous policy shift that followed the state’s opening of its medical marijuana market a little over a year ago. Forensic-psychologist-turned-entrepreneur Dr. Kara Coe, popularly known within professional cannabis circles as the “Queen of Green,” has been on the forefront of the Virginia cannabis movement, most recently through the launch of her diverse cannabis-focused business portfolio. Today, Dr. Coe provided an update on her business endeavors relative to Virginia’s recent recreational cannabis legalization. “Women nurture others by nature, so even though this is a male-dominated industry, it’s natural that a woman would harness the healing power of cannabis and develop products to help others on a global scale,” said Dr. Coe on her ambitions within the cannabis sector. “When I was in residency, Harvard Med didn’t even mention the cannabinoid system. I’m excited for the research and therapeutic interventions this new legislation will bring.”

About Dr. Kara Coe
Born and raised on the East Coast, Dr. Kara Coe knew early she wanted to help people. She received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology and completed residency, fellowship and postdoctoral training through a program at Harvard University. She has done work with forensic and military populations and has published a wide range of empirical literature, including articles related to parasuicidal behavior, psychopathy, interrogation, delinquency and transgendered patients. Coe is finishing a memoir depicting the internal struggle of soldiers she treated while working for the U.S. Army and NSA. She was licensed to practice in Washington, D.C., and Virginia and works with government agencies consulting on matters of national security. She recently gave up her licensure to provide free and confidential PTSD therapy to Navy SEALs. Her methods are believed to be unconventional but highly effective.
In 2021, while helping to pass cannabis legislation in Virginia, Coe opened Queens Green Apothecary, an “Alice in Wonderland”-themed smoke shop, and Cannabar, a luxury smoking lounge. Coe also is involved with other CBD/THC products, including InkWell MetaFarm (products developed to heal burns and tattoos), equine hemp bedding and a new line of ready-to-drinks (“RTDs”) that should be on shelves this fall.
