People behind the initiatives and changes in the industry.
SingleSeed’s target market is dispensary owners. When we did our research and began meeting our customers we were pleased to learn about half were women. It is only in the past few months, reading articles which led to scouring board lists, and then searching for more women-owned businesses, that we are seeing that the prevailing perception is this: There are not nearly enough women business owners in the cannabis industry. SingleSeed is committed to helping women succeed in the cannabis industry and while meet-ups, networking, mentoring, and education are all great ways to help women enter and grow in the cannabis industry, we believe the best way to ensure women will continue to enter and stay in the cannabis industry is to support their businesses. To that end, here is a list of women owned and women led businesses.* Please support them!

“Ladybud Magazine launched on April 2, 2013 to much excitement. Today, Ladybud.com is the #1 women’s lifestyle publication with a focus on activism specific to Drug War reform and other socially progressive issues. Ladybud Magazine fills a void in both mainstream and drug policy reform media. Traditional marijuana media focuses on young men and features content about cultivation and party culture. While we at Ladybud respect these roots, we are doing something very different. Our writers are mostly women in their 20s-60s who cover a wide variety of topics: marijuana activism, culture, beauty, sex and food.”

“We at Good Chemistry (OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. 21 +) are guided by four core principles: Science, Access, Dignity and Compassion.

We believe in the fundamental and inalienable right of a person to choose their medical treatment. We recognize that often patients who take cannabis are subjected to unfair treatment under the law. We are committed to defending and protecting the rights of our patients who have entrusted us with their care.
