“Buy weed from women.” If you’re immersed in cannabis culture, you’ve likely seen the merchandise branded with this message. If you haven’t, buying cannabis from women is a thing! It’s a movement founded on the fact that the cannabis industry — like most — is male-dominated.
Let’s also not forget that our favorite plant is a female. Her smokey essence is earthy, medicinal, and nurturing, all of which are feminine by nature. Buying cannabis from women, then, is synergetic — and synergy begets synergy. Everyone needs more of that in their lives, especially in 2022.
Money is an energetic currency. If we spend it with intention and care for who it is going to (and supporting), we can change the system from the inside. While that concept extends beyond cannabis, it’s also a strategy that can create more opportunities for women to own businesses and take back some of the male-led market share in the industry.
That’s why we put together this (short) list of women-owned cannabis businesses. There are many more, so use this as a jumping-off point and dive deeper into the magic of women who sell great cannabis. When women rise, we all rise. That’s why we all need to buy more weed from women.
