2022 Cannabis Brands that Are Making A Change in California
How Cannabis Brands are Making A Difference In 2022
Cannabis brands throughout the ever expanding California industry are differentiated themselves by staying true to their roots. Giving back to the community is laying the groundwork for other cannabis brands to make a difference in not only their business but the overall cannabis industry. With many states, such as New York pushing for cannabis licenses for those unfairly affected by past cannabis laws, social equity is becoming one of the biggest drivers behind the legalization of recreational and medicinal cannabis.
It isn’t just the cannabis industry focusing on social issues and equity, either. A recent survey conducted by Sprout Socialhighlighted that over 70% of consumers wanted brands to take a bigger stand on social and political issues.
Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite cannabis brands that are making a clear and positive difference to their communities, in the industry and in people’s lives.

At Pure Beauty they are well aware of the historical injustice within the cannabis industry and understand that they have a responsibility as an ethical cannabis business to try and correct it.
