Women always make the world brighter, and with the intensive growth of the cannabis industry, they could not stay away from making an impact on the marijuana market. Like in any other industry where women have already occupied their leading roles, the cannabis market also has companies founded by women.
Previously, marijuana use had been mainly associated with men, but after it was legalized in the majority of American states, women also began to show their interest in cannabis products. Currently, market researchers claim that there is almost no gender gap in the industry, and weed producers should also take into account the needs of females.
Here is a list of five successful cannabis companies founded by women and for women.
Treat Yourself was founded by two childhood best friends Leone and Cindy who decided to go into producing female-focused medicated pop tartlets. Beside cannabis-infused edibles, the company's product range also includes apparel and topicals.
The tartlets are vegan and filled with tasty fruit blends. There are also pot-infused mini cakes that are best suited for morning coffee. All edibles are made from natural ingredients and free of gluten. The topicals are offered in the form of body butter that is claimed to be effective for healing skin and relieving pain.
Van Der Pop produces a collection of accessories for true marijuana aficionados. On their official website, you can purchase anything a pot user needs starting from vaporizers to stash jars to clutches and pipes. All accessories are stylish and specially designed for women.
For instance, the stash jars have cute labels indicating the purpose of weed like “sex,” “party,” and “focus.” Clear Cream infused with cannabis oil was specially designed to help women with skin problems. Females will also like the gold rolling paper that is ready for filling.
Mountain Medicine is a Colorado-based company that produces chocolate edibles infused with honey and marijuana. Founded by Jaime Lewis, the company attracts consumers with the tastiest confections on the cannabis market. Lewis is sure that edibles are the safest way of consuming marijuana, and she tries to make it the most delicious one.
Here you can find weed-infused products for both medicinal and recreational purposes. Though the minimum recommended dosage is 10 mg of THC, Mountain Medicine offers edibles with 5 mg of THC for beginners. Some treats were specially created by Lewis; they include cheese nibbles and caramel pretzel bites.
Moxie Meds is another female-oriented cannabis brand founded by women. The company offers weed-infused products targeted to improve women's health. Their tinctures flavored with delicious strawberry are high in CBD and ensure powerful relaxing effects. The Relief has a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC, while the Recovery contains a 4:1 ratio of these cannabinoids.
Using the products of Moxie Meds, many women have already found the desired relief from muscle cramps and pain during their cycle. These tinctures are also beneficial for reducing anxiety and emotional stress. The therapeutic effects of cannabis also ensure overall help in balancing hormonal cycles.
Erin Gore, founder and president of Garden Society, turned to cannabis when she looked for alternative ways of relieving pain after multiple hip surgeries. Inspired by the therapeutic benefits of marijuana, she decided to treat people with low-dose pot edibles.
The company offers elegant and delicious confections that are responsibly made from locally grown products and cannabis. The Bliss Blossoms are milk chocolate treats infused with 10 mg of indica. Bright Blooms are the other edibles produced by the company. These fruit gelées ensure mild energizing effects due to 5 mg of a sativa hybrid per piece.
Apart from selling edibles, Garden Society also makes donations to the research of metastatic breast cancer.
