The cannabis industry has been booming in business and in just a few short years has allowed many people to start a new business. It has been an awesome way to develop a relationship with the local community and has truly helped a ton of people relax or with the many ailments that marijuana has been known to help. It has also been a great time for many people of color and women to make a positive impact on their community and make a living while doing so. Here we are going to honor some really awesome women-owned cannabis businesses that you should really consider checking out.
This awesome brand showcasing some great edible cannabis products that are artfully crafted was started by two entrepreneurial women, Jennifer and Amanda. They sell a variety of delicious cannabis-infused tea bags, ready to drink teas, mints, tinctures, and honey shots. All of their products are organic and free from toxins of any kind with an emphasis on sustainability. Their teas are expertly blended using only the finest ingredients available and oftentimes are low dose THC with a higher focus on things like CBD and CBN. The products offered by Kikoko are intended to help with healing, the immune system, and mental health with names like Tranquili-tea, Sympa-Tea, and Positivi-Tea. The best part of Kikoko is its drive to be sustainable and good to the environment. All ingredients used are organic and pesticide-free and all the packaging is made to be compostable and recyclable. One of their goals is to be as kind to the earth as possible. Another quality that makes them rock is that they plan to give back 1% of all profit, when the law allows, to groups that study childhood seizure disorders.
Yummi Karma/High Gorgeous
In 2014, founder Krystal Kitahara started the Yummi Karma brand dreaming of a day when cannabis would be legal. They specialized in edibles and topicals and have changed many opinions when it comes to women-owned businesses. In 2016, the dream of legalized pot was realized, and they launched their cannabis-infused beauty brand called High Gorgeous. This beauty brand specializes in topicals, drops, and body creams. Things were tenuous in the beginning, but they finally opened the first licensed manufacturing facility in Orange County, California. Both of these outstanding companies pride themselves on being a women-owned and operated business, but they offer much more than that. While stemming from the same owner, both companies offer diverse, different, and bold offerings of products that are cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. They specialize in products that are good for your body, but also environmentally and socially conscious. In fact, they strive to empower women everywhere and “continue to find new, innovative, and effective ways to use cannabis to help women like us.”
This is another awesome women-owned and operated cannabis company nestled among the redwoods of Northern California. Started by two enterprising women, Susan Cleverdon and Gillian Levy, who have over 25 years of experience being herbalists. When blending their formula, they keep in mind the most current research and maintain a commitment to sustainable and environmentally responsible practices. They offer an excellent variety of tinctures that are uniquely blended to support varying aspects of the body and mind. They also offer some unique topicals that contain enticing concoctions of wintergreen and juniper. There is even a tincture that was specifically created for pets that is a 20:1 CBD to THC blend. Great for aging pets or when taking a proactive approach to your pet’s health and wellbeing. With their focus on using the highest quality and environmentally friendly ingredients, you can be sure that you or your pet are getting some of the best cannabis-infused products on the market.
Quim is a very interesting brand indeed. The word Quim is actually an old slang used in the 17th century in place of the word vagina. The name is fitting as they produce a variety of oils and serums that are purposefully produced to promote vaginal health. Their mission, Cyo Nystrom and Rachel Washtien, is to create products for vaginal health and sexual wellness that take sustainable, proactive, self-care seriously. Quim was born due to the fact that most lubricants are glycerin-based which do nothing more than feed the bacteria “down there” and promote UTIs. Their water-based formulas are designed to provide maximum effectiveness while improving vaginal health. They offer products that are full of CBD and THC free for those outside of California or wanting to avoid THC. In addition, they have a few that are full of THC so there is something for everyone.
