Meet Lilach Mazor Power, the founder and CEO of Mazor Collective—the only women majority-owned Arizona cannabis company. Most recently, she’s launched Revelry (revelrycannabis.com), a cannabis for menopause brand that includes three products that address specific needs for women experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Here, we ask Mazor Power how far she has come in this ever-changing industry and what inspired her to launch this new brand.
How long have you been in the CBD industry? In 2013, I was designated as one of the first licensed operators serving medical patients under the voter-approved legalization of medical cannabis. In that capacity, I launched a vertically integrated, seed-to-sale cannabis operation that now employs nearly 70 hardworking Valley residents. At my company, Mazor Collective, we cultivate the entire cannabis plant. While CBD (cannabidiol) is the most recognized building block of the plant, it is but one of over 100 identified cannabinoids in the plant.

Why is this discussion about menopause and cannabis important? A woman is considered in menopause when she has gone 12 consecutive months without a period. The journey to that day, referred to as perimenopause, can last up to 10 years and is often fraught with challenging physical and psychological challenges. At Revelry, we believe that every woman’s perimenopause and menopause journey is unique, and so is the toolkit she uses to address her symptoms. So, we’re honored to be an option women seeking a plant-based, cleanly produced aide can turn to.
What inspired you to launch Revelry? I was often asked by women experiencing perimenopause symptoms whether cannabis might be a solution. That’s why I knew I needed to create something specifically for these women. I had to figure out how to make the medicinal benefits of cannabis more accessible to women experiencing perimenopause, and that’s what Revelry seeks to do.
Why are you rebelling? At Revelry, we’re rebelling against stigma—the stigma associated with aging and how that defines the value of a woman in our society. We’re rebelling against the stigma of cannabis. And, perhaps most of all, we’re rebelling against the idea that life stops here. We believe menopause shouldn’t be a distraction from the life you’ve built. We believe it should be a revelry, a celebration of all you’ve accomplished and all that’s yet to come.

How do these three products stand out from others? They’re designed for women by women and seek to address a woman’s day, night and intimacy symptoms in a convenient and accessible way. We are the only cannabis-based products in Arizona for women experiencing these symptoms.
What can users expect from using day capsules? These one-a-day gems provide you with a discreet, low-calorie and 100% hormone-free daily microdose of cannabis designed to reduce anxiety and irritability, improve mood and stay sharp without the ‘high.’ The balanced combination of 2.5 mg each of THC, CBD, CBG and CBN helps to alleviate the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. They’re effective on their own, or as part of any homeopathic or medical menopause treatment regimen. We always encourage women considering any treatment to consult with her physician.
What are the benefits of using night capsules? Women who’ve tried the night capsules have shared that one capsule a couple hours before bedtime helps them fall asleep faster, stay asleep and wake feeling energized, rested and focused the next morning. The night formula takes advantage of the ‘entourage effect’ of cannabis, pairing 10 mg THC and 10 mg CBD in a one-to-one ratio to offer restorative sleep. You should feel the full effect of this dose on night one, though it gets even better the more consistently it is used.
Tell us about CBD intimacy oil. Many women who experience perimenopause and menopause report experiencing vaginal dryness, which, in turn, contributes to painful sex. Our CBD Intimacy Oil is a pH-balanced blend of peppermint oil, vanilla and full-spectrum CBD extract that delivers a cooling effect designed to improve blood flow, enhance intimacy and soothe delicate skin.
What’s up next for Revelry? In addition to adding more products to the brand, we have plans to expand into other states.
