The cannabis industry is booming worldwide. It is critically important to recognize Black creators and businesses in the industry – Black-owned cannabis businesses only make up about 4% of cannabis businesses in the US.
Cannabis is no longer taboo and to many of us, cannabis is mainstream. We should expect to see cannabis represented in our culture, in our clothes, in our accessories. We should be talking about cannabis, as medical treatments, as wellness products, as health-promoting, as mood-enhancing. The cannabis community is limitless in reach and application.
