The topic of parenting and cannabis is one that even cannabis advocates have somewhat avoided, even now with more states legalizing. However, Tokeativity has done just the opposite, and instead welcomes cannabis-consuming mothers to tell their stories and build community through their global forum and event series, CannaMamas.
Tokeativity co-founders Samantha Montanaro and Lisa Snyder have been striving to create a place for women to connect, learn, and support one another since the company’s inception. “We hope to educate and empower women to make the best choice for them during pregnancy and parenthood. As we expand, we keep meeting more and more mothers who feel just as alone as I did during the early years of parenthood.” Montanaro said.
Lisa Snyder is the Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer of Tokeativity, The Global Feminist Community for Active Cannabis Culture.
She is a feminist and plant medicine advocate with over 25 years of digital strategy experience and has passionately supported the self-healing revolution through consumption and plant medicine advocacy.
She has been recognized for her work in Forbes, Rolling Stone, Condé Nast Traveler, Yahoo! Finance, The Guardian, MJ Lifestyle, Travel Portland, Dope Magazine, Civilized, Magnetic Magazine, Willamette Week, and Time Out New York among others.
After losing both parents to cancer in her 20’s, she passionately partnered her community building, feminist event planning, and web skills with fellow event planner, cannabis entrepreneur and community builder, Samantha Montanaro, to create Tokeativity in 2016.
