This May 2, 2022 article features Tokeativity in the discussion of legalization and parenting.
Samantha Montanaro, co-founder of Tokeativity, a global feminist community for active cannabis consumers and business owners, believes keeping women from cannabis is more about not trusting women with their bodies and their babies, than anything else. She points to studies that shows cannabinoids occur naturally in breast milk, as supporting evidence.“
It really does make me so upset because it’s such a hard transition to begin with and moms are just looking for ways to feel better, to feel healthy, so they can show up for their baby,” Montanaro told Leafly. “It’s really hard to be a great mom when you’re in so much pain you can’t function or when you’re so out of whack with your hormones. That’s where I see a lot of benefit, especially with CBD.”
The Emerald Media Group featured Tokeativity on a list of top cannabis brands dedicated to equity. Tokeativity was one of just TEN brands included on their “support and restock” list.
Tokeativity is committed to social equity. For instance, they have offered free marketing for women and BIPOC-owned businesses, and they also donate to many nonprofits, like Black Lives Matter, Minorities For Medical Marijuana, the NAACP, ACLU Planned Parenthood and many more.

Also, Tokeativity helps focus on issues that women of color face in politics and leadership positions. Through their memberships, they connect creativity, social causes, politics and feminist activities to create changes in the industry.
Tokeativity emphasizes that they believe in “cannabis normalization, equity and empowerment of a modern consumption culture.”

Janelle Lassalle described how great the leggings fit. “These Teal Leaf leggings from Tokeativity, however, are designed to never lose their stretch. That’s because they’re made of a comfortable microfiber yarn designed to hold its shape. Precision-cut and hand-sewn after printing, they also have a built in, comfortable elastic waistband. The end result is something that’s comfortable but stunningly cute even from afar. You may even want to buy two…just in case :)”
