Aspen Jewel

Health and Wellness Director

An important factor in cannabis legalization is educating the patients and public about the uses and science behind plant medicine. Aspen Sennewald will be in charge of educating consumers on products, the science and rich history behind cannabis, and even be an available resource for patients at any time for questions beyond a bud-tenders realm of knowledge at KCCC. She graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelors in Health Science and an emphasis in Health & Wellness in May of 2019. Aspen is 21 and entering the business world so young because she graduated high school in three years before immediately working toward her unique goals; which include combining homeopathic medicines for patient relief backed by science. Aspen was the president of MU-NORML (Mizzou’s National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) for two years and helped legalized cannabis through educating peers about voting and the cannabis plant itself. While obtaining her degree, Aspen educated herself on cannabis and became the expert she knew didn’t exist in her area. She received 9 essential cannabis certifications from Cannabis Training University and continues to expand her knowledge daily. Aspen has three featured articles in the first cannabis magazine in Missouri, The Evolution, where she has already written about cannabis and dieting, terpenes, and even patient access. We plan to put Aspen in the role of teaching our consumers the most important and relevant information tailored to their specific needs. Aspen managed a CBD shop in Columbia for 6 months and recently moved to Kansas City to manage a CBD dispensary (Hemp Haven). In her free time, Aspen enjoys hiking, yoga, and spending time with others in the cannabis industry. She has been networking at events all over the country since 2016 including Drug Policy Alliance in Atlanta, MJBizCon in Las Vegas, MOCann in St. Louis, and even hosted her own educational conference at Mizzou in which industry leaders spoke to consumers about what to expect with the passing of Amendment 2. Aspen is excited, determined, and suited for this position.
