A while ago I attended a festive and fun fall gathering held by Lady Chatterley's Lover, a Bay Area based delivery company, and The High Note, a cannabis focused party planner, at Meadow HQ in the SOMA district of San Francisco. The event focused on women, not only as consumers but as entrepreneurs as well. In cannabis, like much of society, it can be hard to find a space that is welcoming and even embracing of women. And while the event wasn't exclusivley for women, all of the products featured were influenced in some way by a woman. Recognition of women, and all marginalized groups honestly, in this industry, and society as a whole, will not only be a step closer to true equality, but it will also create the most diverse marketplace imaginable. I'm overjoyed to see the steps being made in the right direction.
The first vendor I noticed was Kush Creams. What caught my attention was their chemotherapy shampoo and conditioner, which is something I've honestly never seen. Their products are made with emu oil that helps carry the goodness of cannabis deep into it's users body, and has some benefits of it own! Indica House Inc. tinctures were also on display, as well as Emerald Frams vape cartridges.
Alchemy by Dark Heart was there with tons of rainbows and cartridges. While their cartridges aren't strain specific, Aclchemy creates "the perfect blend for wellness and unparalleled consistency" with 4 blends: Awaken, Inspire, Relax and Explore.
I was incredibly excited to learn about Prema Flora at this event. We are living in a time where many small farms are feeling threatened by the looming presence of corperate cannabis. It's companies like these who provide those small farms with the overhead they may not be able to provide for themsleves, so they in turn can focus on the plants, maintain a living wage, while keeping cannabis sustainable and beneficial for local economies. Sun grown flowers are often seen as 'lesser' than indoor, and I'm glad there are people working to change that notion and allow these flowers to shine in the light they deserve. Because seriously, it was some good weed.
While wandering around I met the people behind Healthy Headie Lifestyle. They provide a service for those looking to make the transition into cannabis and who don't know much about it. They educate individuals on the array of ways to medicate, the difference in products and even which strains might work best for them. Plus, they had a dab rig. I had to take a few.
MoonMan's Mistress was there with plenty of medicated and non-medicated samples to share. If you read review of their products, you already know I'm a huge fan. Liz, the #LadyBoss in the duo that creates these treats, is a huge inspiration to me. They way she stands by her products, the way she's managed the health issues she's been dealt. So much strength and power to look up to! And I won't lie, I had some more samples.
And it wouldn't be a gathing for women without some jewlery! Smokies Toke Couture creates fun and elegant pieces for the cannabis lover in everyone! The image in cannabis is chaning and the variety in lifesyle products needs to match that. Each piece is handmade right here in San Francisco by and individual who cares deeply for cannabis and it's community. Keeping it classy! (I also manage their social media accounts.)
The party was fun, and there was lots to see. Not everyone who atteneded was featured here, only those who caught my eye, but I hope you enjoyed what I had to share! And if you're local, go see what they have to offer for yourself at the Cannabis Holiday Gift Fair! It's free and it's this Sunday, December 4th. Click here for more info.
