It’s no secret that the cannabis industry simply isn’t as diverse as it should be. Statistically, around 90% of all cannabis businesses in the US are owned by white Americans, most of them men. So, where are the BIPOC, women, or LGBTQIA+ representation? We were wondering that, too.
That’s why, today, we’ve curated a list of the top women-owned cannabis brands you can support. Not only are these brands run by lovely ladies, but many of them embrace inclusion and diversity as also minority and BIPOC-ran companies. If you’re looking to diversify your cannabis experience and support those who are still fighting for a seat at the table, check out these amazing women-owned cannabis brands.
