The cannabis community is tight-knit. It’s the result of so many businesses figuring it out as they go along with a series of occupational challenges that bind us together. And despite the hardships we may face, at the end of the day it’s still a thing of wonder that we get to work with such empathetic and caring people. Walk into any dispensary and you’ll see what I mean—chances are the first thing you’ll see is a smiling face, greeting you to the store with a warm welcome.
It should come as no surprise, then, that this fledgling community should be such a generous one, too. Many cannabis entrepreneurs care deeply about giving back to causes near and dear to their hearts. In the spirit of spreading the love, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites.
Here are the cannabis businesses invested in giving back to their communities (that you should most definitely be supporting).
Tokeativity is all about ladies celebrating ladies. This badass group of women host a variety of female-centric cannabis events nationwide that happen to be some of the most loving cannabis gatherings you could ever hope to attend. It’s chock-full of excellent resources, including a jobs board, a work for trade area, online classes, and more.
