Women’s History Month Spotlight: Female Founded Cannabis Brands


women in cannabis

This month, we’re celebrating Women’s History Month by recognizing some incredible female founded cannabis brands.

The Future of Cannabis is Female

This year, as we celebrate Women’s History Month we’d like to spend some time recognizing all of the incredible and innovative women who are pushing the cannabis industry forward. The more we see companies created by women, the more we see products designed with women in mind, and this March, we spoke to a handful of female founded cannabis brands that are pioneers in the space.

These cannabis brands feel strongly that women’s health, wellness, and pleasure is important – so important that they decided it was their duty to fill in the gaps.



Foria focuses on the bigger conversation around women’s health. They are the first brand to truly create comprehensive product lines for intimacy, relief, and optimal wellbeing for women. Their mission is to help dispensaries understand why they should offer effective products for important and under-served life experiences. Their CBD botanical line is now available in CO dispensaries.

In addition to it being Women’s Month, it is also Endometriosis month, take a look at guest post from Lara Parker about endometriosis and this Q+A with Dr. Aviva Romm.

Flower by Edie Parker

Founded by Brett Heyman, Flower by Edie Parker is the first brand to fully merge the worlds of fashion and cannabis. Made from the highest quality materials, Flower was born out of the idea that cannabis products (and use) should be celebrated and displayed, not discreetly hidden and tucked away. Flower by Edie Parker has combined women’s fashion and aesthetic to create a brand that appeals to the new generation of female cannabis users.

Mary’s Medicinals

Mary’s Medicinals was founded by two women back in 2012. The concept was to create a type of brand not yet existent in the market that would allow consumers a consistent, reliable, and more accurate way to consume cannabis. With award-winning products such as Transdermal Patches, Transdermal Compound and Remedy Oil, Mary’s allows for many women to treat reported issues such as menstrual discomfort, sleep, and mental health in a highly intentional and more efficient way.

LEUNE is a California-born lifestyle brand forged on the principle of transcending the narrative of cannabis culture. LEUNE is proudly owned and operated by a WOC. Honoring a 3.0 consumer who knows that ‘getting high’ only begins to tell the story of what the plant truly represents, they’re interested in elevating the conversation around cannabis.

Did you know, it’s the Female Cannabis plant that produces the flowers we all know and love? In true Feminine Fashion, Cannabis brings to mind comfort, healing and creativity. She illuminates the fight for justice, and creates spaces for resistance and rest.

betty’s mission is to help every woman find, celebrate, and nurture that vital feminine within through cannabis infused self-care. They create product lines, from bath soaks to THC-infused single serving brownie mix, that meet women right where they are and allow them to incorporate cannabis into their existing rituals.
