AAPI Cannabis Brands to Support This Month & Always

By Kaleigh Fasanella

Happy Asian American Pacific Islander month, everyone! We’re extremely proud to be an AAPI-founded brand and part of such an amazing community of humans with roots from all over Asia. We were honored to be included in CNN Underscored’s round-up of the best AAPI-founded beauty brands alongside some seriously incredible companies, which made us think: Why not do our own featuring cannabis brands? So naturally that’s exactly what we did. Without further ado, check out some of the coolest AAPI-led cannabis brands currently on the market right now — and don’t forget to shop and support them this month and moving forward.
