cannabis marketing to women



A while back, I had a friend ask if I could recommend any black-owned (hemp) CBD companies. It alarmed me that I couldn't think of any right off the top of my head, but I could name a number of white-owned (hemp) CBD companies immediately. In order to prevent this from happening again, I'm working to put together a list of PoC- and WoC-owned cannabis businesses, so we don't get too inundated by white-owned businesses in this industry.* This list includes LGBTQIA owners of color as well, so you’ll see that noted below. The PoC Cannabis Business Directory is created by you, the community, and compiled here as a resource for you as conscious cannabis consumers. I’ll continue to add to this list as you continue to submit more companies. This directory covers cannabis companies including, but not limited to dispensaries, farms/cultivators, THC-infused products, hemp products (which include most CBD products), accessories, lifestyle, media/press, financial services, and more ancillary organizations. If you are an owner of a business listed below and any information is incorrect, please reach out and notify me for requested changes.

Send this directory to people in your life so they can support these PoC-owned cannabis businesses. Use it as a resource when you travel to legal states or shop in your home state. Use this list for collaboration and community-building. Let’s start amplifying non-white owned cannabis businesses!

* Sorry not sorry white owners, you have more potential for access, resources, and privilege than owners of color do and this is a small way to offset that imbalance. If you have a problem with this, I encourage you to evaluate your uncomfortability and think about why this bothers you. You can contact me if you’re still bothered after your self-evaluation and I’ll re-explain the goals of this directory.
