Black-Owned Cannabis Brands That Deserve Your Coins

When we consider certain legal statistics, it speaks leagues about how our criminal justice system works — or fails. One 2017 study found that women commit 51% of embezzlement crimes. This may be surprising to the average person, but those who prosecute these cases likely know it well. A statistic that has been historically ignored on all fronts, however, is the disproportionate rate at which black people are convicted and unequally prosecuted because of marijuana. black owned cannabis related products According to an analysis from the ACLU, black people are 3.73 times more likely than white people to be arrested for marijuana-related offenses, despite roughly equal usage rates. As it becomes decriminalized and completely legalized in more states, this conversation is very slowly moving towards reparations for the people and communities who have been unjustly and disproportionately affected by the criminalization of marijuana. Black lawmakers in New York State have even pushed to bar marijuana legalization unless the bill contains provisions for these reparations. Not only does this attention align with the 100-year tradition of state courts looking to evidence of legislative intent when construing state law, but it could help the large communities of people of color in the state, especially in New York City. Before the bill goes through, lawmakers want to ensure that it promotes community reinvestment and minority participation in the presently-booming cannabis industry. This would include job training programs and prioritizing licenses to people in black and Latinx communities who have been hit hardest by strict marijuana laws in the past.

As the track record of those who’ve benefited from marijuana legalization in this country shows, these provisions are more than fair. Black people have owned and founded less than 5% of all cannabis businesses that have cropped up in the states where the drug is legal, while white people own 81% of the businesses. Estimates show that the market for medical marijuana alone in New York State is about $3.1 billion, but without any legal provisions the vast majority of the profits would likely end up in the pockets of wealthy white people in Manhattan high-rises who haven’t faced decades-long sentences for a non-violent marijuana charge. If recreational marijuana is ever legalized in the state, anyone who has had even minor charges for possessing a joint’s worth of weed — namely people of color police has historically targeted — wouldn’t be eligible to work in the legal cannabis industry. While lawmakers work to fight these policies that bar those who have been disproportionately punished for being involved in an illegal industry now being made legal, there are many fantastic cannabis businesses owned and operated by black people. Let’s dive into just a few of the many black-owned businesses in the cannabis industry that deserves your financial support.

CBD

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a chemical compound that comes from the cannabis plant. It is not psychoactive like THC, the part of the cannabis plant that’s responsible for creating the “high” effect of marijuana. Instead, CBD is used in oils and edibles to create a feeling of relaxation and calm. CBD can even be useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and possibly even treating addictions and mental illness. Many different businesses and products use CBD nowadays, as it becomes further integrated into the wellness community. Undefined CBD beauty oil Undefined Beauty is a black-owned business specializing in CBD beauty oil. Its debut product is Indigo Rose Glow Elixir, a lightweight oil with a rose scent. Founder Dorian Morris is a beauty industry veteran who knows how expensive CBD products can be and fights against that with affordable pricing. As the company unveils more CBD-infused, cruelty-free, and vegan products, Morris sees them threading a message of social awareness while providing customers with accessible and relaxing options to indulge in CBD.

Dispensaries

With the legalization of recreational marijuana, dispensaries are popping up everywhere. About 17 million acres of forest land will be lost permanently to development and urbanization in the next five decades, but every other person seems to want to grow a forest of their own in modern greenhouses and grower’s rooms. While many white people have latched on to this trend, there are plenty of great black-owned dispensaries. SimplyPure Dispensary Located in Denver, Simply Pure was the first black woman-owned dispensary in the city. Wanda James and Scott Durrah opened the dispensary in 2010, serving vegan edibles, flowers, and operating a small-batch farm. Their farm even earned the title of Best Flavor Champion at Colorado’s 2018 The Grow Off Competition. Notable marijuana-loving celebrities like Snoop Dogg, Whoopi Goldberg, and Wiz Khalifa have also opened dispensaries as legalization has spread throughout the country.

Culinary Experiences, T-Shirts, And More

Any long-time marijuana enthusiast knows the joy of combining the recreational drug with some good eats. With the U.S. food and drink industry sitting at a value of nearly $7.99 billion, anyone with an eye for business could spot this opportunity to combine the two professionally. Entrepreneur Doug Cohen and chef Miguel Trinidad recognized this profitable pairing and started 99th Floor, a premier dining experience in which Trinidad prepares a five-course meal infused with cannabis. Much like wine is used to enhance a meal, Cohen advertises 99th Floor as a way to experience food in a completely new light. They’ve designed the overall meal as a progression of micro-dosing, with about 3 mg of cannabis per course. Trinidad’s incredible culinary skills have made the venture rather well-known and very tasty. cannabis-infused culinary meals For anyone who wants to support black entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry but maybe doesn’t enjoy the green themselves, head to Girls Who Canna. This e-commerce site is filled with goods, such as cards, t-shirts, pillows, mugs, and bags, that feature fun and innovative cannabis-themed designs. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for your stoner bestie or you want a few things for yourself, you’ll know that you’re supporting black women in the cannabis industry. cannabis related products While the government and lawmakers get their bills in line, you can make a positive impact on black entrepreneurs by directing your hard-earned money towards their businesses. Even the smallest contribution makes a difference. You’ll benefit as well as you fly high on the knowledge that you gave much-needed support — and maybe on a little bit of cannabis too.

Cannabidiol

Tapping Into The Surge In Popularity Of CBD Products

As the national push for decriminalization and legalization of marijuana continues, the industry is riddled with new products. Cannabidiol — commonly referred to as CBD — is making a huge surge in popularity.

Cannabidiol

CBD, THC, and Me

You’ve no doubt seen both of these cannabis-related acronyms. Both chemical compounds are present in cannabis plants, but they work differently. CBD is second to THC in cannabis, but it isn’t an intoxicant like it’s psychoactive sibling THC. Commonly in oils, but present in countless other products, CBD has been found to provide a more manageable, clear-headed feeling than THC’s high. Still, the two are often blended together in different levels of potency, each of which will affect everyone differently. With 1.5 billion people across the world suffering from chronic pain, one of the most common uses for CBD is treating it. By most accounts, it’s been pretty successful, too. Plus, there are a ton of choices.

From Personal Care To Pets

The storied uses for CBD products have expanded quickly. When 88% of women say their hair directly influences their confidence, you better believe there’s a smattering of CBD products touting their benefits. Does your dog have anxiety? People have been resorting to CBD treatments. CBD treatment famously helped a young girl named Charlotte with chronic seizures.

In fact, supermarket giant Kroger announced that they’d begin distributing CBD products in 945 stores across the United States. The online availability of CBD products is even more widespread, with retailers taking advantage of the fact that 90% of searchers haven’t even decided on a product yet. Why not give them innumerable options? Kroger is neither the first nor will they be the last to do so.

Do Your Homework

CBD might sound great, but bad products exist in every industry. When 33% of retailers have the ability to display their inventories on the web, online CBD markets are very extensive. With so many options, it’s essential to do the appropriate research for both health and legality.

“In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD,” says a report from the World Health Organization.

This isn’t an excuse to be ill-informed about what CBD products you might consider buying. Everybody is different, and it’s important to know where your products are coming from, as well as the additional ingredients they may have.

Some believers tout CBD as a cure-all for every ailment. Others are skeptics. It remains true that not enough is yet known CBD to canonize it or demonize it. While the market swells with CBD products, it’s important to keep that in mind. It always pays to be a conscious consumer, whether it’s CBD or not.</p

Kona Craft Beers

Celebrating the Summer with Hawaii’s Kona Brewing Company

Hawaii’s Kona Brewing Company graced New York City just in time for summer – introducing we “mainlanders” to some of their most popular beers offered nationwide.  We must give kudos to Kona Brewing for making light beers that are actually interesting! We had the opportunity to try Kona’s Tropical Pineapple Gold Cliff IPA, Big Wave Golden Ale, Kanaha Blonde Ale, and Longboard Island Lager.

Kona Craft BeersKona Craft Beers

Kona has brews that are available both on the mainland and some exclusive to Hawaii only. They brew more than a dozen beers a year, but the regulars are our classic ales and lagers available in all 50 states.

Gold Cliff IPA Tropical Pineapple

Kona Gold Cliff IPA Tropical Pineapple

Gold Cliff IPA draws you in with its beach and postcard-worthy dark brown bottle embossed with the Hawaiian islands. For those not familiar, an IPA is an acronym for ‘Indian Pale Ale’ – this is a lighter brown beer that typically has a very herby but subtle medicinal note. Every side of this vintage sized bottle gives you a nostalgic feeling of exploring the Hawaiian coasts – or at least watching amazing surfing films from the ’50s and ’60s.
Gold Cliff IPA is a great entry point to appreciating the distinct taste of IPAs – it is floral and fruity with a real natural pineapple flavor. It’s not too sharp but definitely not sugary sweet. I found this IPA very refreshing and totally get why they embossed “Liquid Aloha” on the neck of the bottle – this is perfect light IPA to put in the cooler for sipping beach-side (or poolside then beach side) on a sun-drenched day. I especially love that the bottle lists the calorie and carb content – for those who are actively counting – Gold Cliff is only  212 calories per serving.

Big Wave Golden Ale

Kona Big Wave Golden Ale

Big Wave like a long cool drink from an oasis.  It is LIGHT and bubbly. At 4.4% ABV and 142 calories, each sip was refreshing and airy. Kona describes their Golden Ale as the perfect beer for after a day out on the water – it felt very hydrating. This is a chill beer for a low key buzz so that you can fully experience the environment around you and share the adventures of the day with others.

Kanaha Blonde Ale

Kona Kanaha Blonde Ale

For those who enjoy a low key sip, chill, and share moments, this Blonde Ale has the lowest ABV (4.2%) and calorie count  (99 calories per bottle). Although not sweet, Kanaha Ale is infused with a very small but bright note of mango and is palatable to enjoying with…dare we say it? Cannabis. Have you ever considered pairing beer with your favorite strains of weed? If it’s ever crossed your mind, the most important thing to consider is picking a beer and a bud with terpenes that won’t overpower each other in the aroma.  (Terpenes – (terps) in case you are wondering, are the organic compounds found in herbs that give it flavor). The mild and light tropical flavors of Kanaha are a great candidate for pairing. Kanaha would also pair well with grilled seafood and salads.

Longboard Island Lager

Kona Longboard Island Lager

For the traditionalists, Longboard Island Lager is a smooth, refreshing traditional beer, fermented and aged for five weeks for a smooth flavor. Another year-round favorite for the beach that pairs well with pizza, chicken, garlic knots, and many other party foods that will marry well with the beer’s hoppy aroma.  You can drink this lager goes with almost any meal. At 4.60% ABV, and 144 calories, you’ll make any of your friends happy you brought a few six packs to the luau.

Kona Craft Beers

Keep an eye out for their Hanalei Island IPA. After launching exclusively in Hawaii in 2016, Kona Brewing Company opened its refreshing fruit-forward IPA, to the U.S. mainland. The tropical fruit-forward brew features Passionfruit, Orange and Guava.

Free Dad Hugs

Man’s Free Dad Hugs Shirt At Pride Parade Sparks Viral Reaction

When we think of novelty t-shirts, a strong majority are pretty terrible. We make t-shirts for every other event out there and they’re cool for a day, then disappear. More than 14.3 million tons of American textiles help clothe people around the world, many of which are event apparel of some sort. Dads are especially renowned for making and wearing some of the best/worst shirts ever. We could list them, but the general concept is seeing your Dad wear some shirt he finds clever and you shake your head.

One Dad heard his friend was going to the Pride Parade in Pittsburgh wearing a shirt that said free Mom hugs and decided he wanted to join. Scott Dittman, inspired by his friend Deanna, didn’t know how much they were about to mean to the LGBTQ+ community. The organization Deanna was attending with is called Free Mom Hugs, an LGBTQ+ ally group that aims to help build a better tomorrow, literally one hug at a time.

“My first thought was, I’m thinking the rate of rejection from fathers is probably higher than mothers,” Dittman said. “I can give dad hugs.”

So he got his free Dad hugs shirt and joined the parade. There are technically three categories of high-visibility safety apparel out there, but the free Dad hugs shirt was about to become the fourth. He was about to learn too many people hadn’t felt safe in the arms of their own father’s in a long time. The first person he hugged was standing in front of him, with tears in her eyes. He said she just thanked him over and over again. The next hug was a gay man who had been abandoned by his parents at 19 years old because of his sexuality.

“He just sobbed and sobbed and thanked us,” said Dittman. “He just melted. It was an honor to be involved in that, but it was terrible at the same time.”

Lots of hugs were exchanged that day, with more emotions than Dittman admitted expecting. Never really thinking himself as an LGBTQ+ ally other than having a heart for human beings, he was distraught with how something as seemingly small as hugs impacted so many people.

“You could tell they hadn’t had something as simple as a hug from their dad in a long time. That broke my heart,” he said.

Afterward, he was righteously upset. So he let it fly, telling the story of the day briefly, complete with how it impacted him and admonishing parents who have all but disowned their kids because of who they are.

“Imagine that, parents. Imagine that your child feels SO LOST FROM YOU that they sink into the arms of a complete stranger and sob endlessly just because that stranger is wearing a shirt offering hugs from a dad. Think of the depths of their pain. Try to imagine how deep those cuts must be. Please don’t be the parent of a child that has to shoulder that burden. I met WAY too many of them, of all ages, today,” the post said.

Other than venting, he didn’t expect his post to make any waves. With his message and the number of mobile search users slated to hit 221 million by 2020, the post quickly went viral. Approximately 248,000 shares and 341,000 likes later, the post made big waves. He reported receiving over 1,500 responses from parents around the country who were broken by his words because he was speaking directly to them.

“I’ve had so many parents reach out to me saying they’ve been crying for days, saying they’ve been those parents, and they’ve reached out to their children they haven’t talked to in years,” said Dittman.

He reported that one young person reached out to him saying that he’d saved their life that day with his post. Stirred, he isn’t planning on ceasing with being an active ally and free Dad hugs. That day helped so many people and, before he went there, he’d merely assumed his shirt would get some smiles. That day changed him and his perspective.

“It’s humbling, but it’s sad,” he explains. “It’s sad that some guy in some small town western Pennsylvania is having that much of an impact when that impact should’ve been made and when they shouldn’t have even needed it because they weren’t abandoned in the first place.”

As we age, more than half of adults over 50 agree that our smiles remain our most attractive physical features. Dittman didn’t know he’d cause so many smiles that day. The point to which it humbled and angered him, marks the internal shift that more people need to feel. A little anger and a lot of love go a long way.
