JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. (420CanNews) — This ain’t your Daddy’s cannabis industry. But is it your Momma’s? While male dominance has long characterized certain industries, women in cannabis have shattered glass ceilings and redefined the narrative. The cannabis sector is experiencing a dynamic shift, with the ganja goddesses cultivating a cannabis revolution, breaking through the glass barriers of what many have called “the green closet” with the force of a bong hit. 

A High-Ly Powerful Heritage

Women have been harnessing the power of cannabis since the time of Hatshepsut, the revered female Pharaoh of ancient Egypt. Throughout history, women have embraced the plant’s medicinal properties, harnessing its therapeutic potential for alleviating pain and stress. Moreover, notable women such as anthropologist Margaret Mead and poet Maya Angelou have contributed their influential voices to the advocacy for the legalization of cannabis.

Trailblazing Women-Owned Brands

Today, a new generation of female leaders is blazing progress trails in the green closet. Here are some of the leading women-owned cannabis brands that are making a difference in the industry:

1. Leune 

This is a California-based 420 lifestyle brand founded by Nidhi Lucky Handa. More than just “getting high,” LEUNE creates a holistic experience tailored to diverse preferences. For exceptional flavor profiles, stoners can explore LEUNE’s Desert Gold, a tropical sativa-heavy hybrid.

2.  KIVA Confections

3. Poplar
