Women In Weed

BARBARI Thoughts

The Ultimate List of Women owned cannabis brands to buy and subscribe To

Welcome to ✨March✨, or as we like to call it, that time of the year where we get to be loud and proud in celebrating all that is Woman. Yes, it’s National Women’s History Month! Many have paved the way for women to be where we are today, and while there is still quite some distance to go, let’s just take a beat from fighting the strong fight and celebrate the achievements so far. Hug yourselves, hug your mama’s, and hug your sisters. Good? Good. 

The cannabis industry started off quite strong when it comes to women in leadership positions. Yet, over the span of two years between 2019 and 2021, the number decreased from 36.8% to 29.8% women-owned. I mean, what the fridge?! As a women-owned cannabis business ourselves, this stings a bit to watch. And you know what? There are a number of factors that contributed to this decrease, but that is not what we want to focus on today. Today, we want to highlight the existing boss-ass businesses that are run by women, in the cannabis industry. Let’s shed some light and love on these phenomenal women who break every barrier to (quite literally) change the world.  So without further ado, click, follow, subscribe, and SHOP the following long list of women-owned cannabis businesses! 

As a little added bonus, we’ve partnered with some of these brands to give you 15% off their products! On all brands with a *STAR* next to them, you can use code BABS15 to get 15% off. Go Women!
