The best products for women are created by women themselves. Therefore, a great way to celebrate Women’s History Month is to support women-owned or focused businesses and practice self-care.
Female cannabis consumers recently surpassed male users, creating a lucrative market for products marketed for women. For example, the Cannabis Consumer Coalition found that 53% of women and 42% of men are cannabis consumers. Also, 6% of these women reported daily use.
These female-owned companies create products specifically for female consumers. This list contains products for women by women including skincare, ingestibles, smokeware and more. In addition, these products address women’s general, mental or reproductive health.
Kush Queen sells CBD and THC-infused bath products, topicals, and ingestibles. The company is well known for their CBD and delta 8-THC bath bombs. They also offer other skincare products like lotion, shower gel and sugar scrub.
