What is Tokeativity?

Tokeativity is the global cannabis community for women. Based in Portland, Oregon, USA, Tokeativity was created by Lisa Snyder and Samantha Montanaro in 2016 with an intention to nurture a safe space for women to connect, learn and create. Whether they are a curious first timer or daily consumer, all women of all ages are welcome to join in our community in person or online.
Tokeativity provides a wide variety of in person and online events such as socials, workshops, networking, cannabis conversations, Q & A’s, panels, films, guest artists, and more. Each event has a theme but many events are focused on offering support in career enrichment, personal empowerment and skill set development. A portion of proceeds from each event is donated to a cause we are passionate about supporting.
Tokeativity bridges the gap between this exciting emerging cannabis industry and consumers to educate, empower, uplift and create new meaningful connections. No matter where women live, they can connect with others to learn and participate with the regulated market on our online social network, Tokeativity Connect.Women and cannabis have both been subject to the patriarchal imbalance of our modern world for too long. The drug war and the suppression of women have ruined lives and the time is now to restore this much-needed balance on our Earth. We believe that women and cannabis, together, can make that happen.
