Buy from Black-owned businesses

The War on Drugs has always been a war on BIPOC communities since the beginning. Even with social justice efforts, cannabis legalization still privileges whites. According to Leafly’s most recent jobs report, less than 2% of all cannabis companies are black-owned. Worse, only 1% of those Black-owned businesses were women-owned. Yikes! But, together, we can change that. We regularly add new favorites to this guide of Black-owned cannabis businesses. That way, we can all be more intentional about how we spend.

024's candles are perfect for eliminating the smell of cannabis

024 is the Chicest Way to Control Cannabis Smell

Sometimes you just want to indulge in your favorite flower without the lingering scent. That’s why Gena Surphlis founded 024. Her son smokes cannabis to alleviate the symptoms of sickle cell anemia. But Gena knows there’s still a stigma surrounding cannabis use. She wants her son and others to enjoy the freedom to consume cannabis without judgment. Thus, 024 was born. This Black-owned brand makes candles that eliminate the telltale smell of cannabis by combining science and scent. Their NeuAir™ scent technology specifically targets the chemical compounds that give cannabis its recognizable smell. Not only do they eliminate the odor, but they have incredible scents of their own, too. Visit 024 and follow @discover024.

Easily Make Gourmet Edibles with Black-Owned Ardent

But, without temperature control, you’re either not fully activating the plant or you’re burning some up. Ardent was developed by medical marijuana patient, Shanel Lindsay. With a sleek design, Ardent optimally activates your THC, CBD, and CBG by heating it at precision temps.
