Brands Who Are Giving Back To The LGBTQ Community

It’s that time of year again. The month-long period where large companies, banks, and politicians start selling products and apparel decorated with rainbow Pride flags, glitter, and slogans like “Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not” and “Yasss”.

Corporations love Pride Month. But it may (or may not) surprise you to learn that the vast majority of companies and organizations who sell Pride merch during June don’t actually do anything to help the community whose imagery and slang they’re all too happy to appropriate. Furthermore, many of them aren’t too keen on showing any support to the LGBTQ community at all during the rest of the year.

Still, Pride-themed merchandise is tempting to buy. Especially when said merchandise will also get you lifted and feeling great. So, we’ve put together a list of brands who are giving back to the LGBTQ community this Pride Month:

Mr. Moxey’s Mints

Mr. Moxey’s Mints is celebrating the month with a limited edition 2:1 CBD: THC mint dubbed Proud Peppermint Pride Pastilles. If you’re not sold on that amazing alliteration alone, it gets better. This company has partnered with LGBTQ-leaning organizations in each state where they have a presence, and are donating one dollar from every tin of mints sold to those organizations.

In California, the donations will go to the San Francisco LGBT Center; in Oregon, they have partnered with Q Center; and in Washington, they will support the organization Lifelong, specifically their Chicken Soup Brigade.


Sometimes you just need a good, old-fashioned joint that you don’t have to roll yourself. Enter Lowell. This premium cannabis company not only offers pre-rolls in a beautifully constructed pack; they’ve partnered with GLAAD for Pride Month to support the LGBTQ community.

When you buy Lowell’s limited-edition Pride Pack of joints stuffed with The Pride Sativa, part of the proceeds will be donated to GLAAD to further their mission to support LGBTQ people. Further, the pack itself comes with a poster designed by LGBT-identified artist Dina Rodriguez.

Fruit Slabs

This new edible is coming out for Pride Month…but it will be available year-round in California. The company Fruit Slabs teamed up with popular drag queen, longtime cannabis advocate, and former contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race Laganja Estranja to create a line of infused fruit strips called Pride Passion.

“I have always wanted to curate a delicious, healthy edible to my #BUDS,” Laganja Estranja explained. “More over, I’ve always wanted to give back to that very community by celebrating them and their accomplishments.  That’s why it’s important for the cannabis industry to recognize the LGBTQ+ community that built their very foundation, especially here in California with Proposition 215, and not just during pride season but year round.”

Fruit Slabs’ Pride Passion line comes in five delicious flavors and are vegan, gluten-free, and sans added sugar. A portion of the proceeds will go to LGBTQ safe houses in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Velvet Swing

Who doesn’t love a good lubricant? And if there’s anything better than lube, it would have to be lube that’s infused with cannabis. Velvet Swing sells the world’s first water-soluble infused lubricant that boasts a perfect combination of THC, CBD, and terpenes. Best of all, this lube is safe to use with all sex toys.

Throughout the year, Velvet Swing sponsors the inclusive and comprehensive sex education organization Pan Eros, and have sponsored LGBTQ-leaning burlesque shows, including San Francisco’s “The Black Manifest” and the Washington-based “Getting Wild.” This month, they have also formed a partnership with the Seattle chain of cannabis dispensaries, Uncle Ike’s, to support local Pride events and activities.

Kiva Confections

Another edibles company on our list of brands who are giving back to the LGBTQ community this Pride Month is Kiva Confections. Best known for their infused chocolate, Kiva also offers gummies and mints—including their limited edition Tropical Punch Camino Gummies.

Kiva partnered with drag queens Peaches Christ, Heklina, and Laganja Estranja to create a line of gummies specifically for Pride—and for input on where to donate some of the proceeds. The artists chose The Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and the GLBT Historical Society.

goodbrands with Blüm

Last, but definitely not least, we have goodbrands. For Pride Month, they joined forces with the dispensary Blüm to produce a #PassForPride and #BlümPROUDLY video series with an all-LGBTQ cast and team of photographers.

Additionally, both Blüm and goodbrands work throughout the year to promote diversity in their hiring practices. goodbrands is also launching an employee resource group initiative, which will uplift their LGBTQ-identifying employees, as well as employees of color, and employees who are parents. goodbrands is also involved in a few Pride events and activities in San Francisco and San Diego.

Three Ounce Possession of Marijuana Decriminalized in Cincinnati • High Times

You will soon be able to walk the streets of Cincinnati, marijuana in hand. After careful debate, the city council passed an ordinance on Wednesday that will make possession of marijuana legal up to three ounces.  

Many council members saw the measure as a compromise, but the majority felt the issue was too important to get hung up on individual conditions. “If we don’t do something now, we’ll never do anything,” said council person Wendell Young.

System changes will take effect in 30 days.

Council member Greg Landsman also expressed a sense of urgency for getting a city ordinance decriminalizing small scale possession on the books. “It is well past time to decriminalize marijuana,” he said. “For far too long, we have put people away for something I think should be legal.”

“The distinct smell of compromise is in the air over the great pot debate of 2019,” said Cincinatti news channel WLWT5. It’s true that there was much debate over the plan on the council. In particular, questions regarding age limits on the decriminalization measures and quantity of marijuana that would be decriminalized were of interest to the policy makers. (They eventually opted out of an age restriction on marijuana possession.) Some lawmakers pushed for allowances for public use of cannabis, but those concerns were ultimately overridden.

Before the measure passed, vice mayor Chris Smitherman initially said in the event council members could not reach an agreement, he would spearhead an attempt to get a decriminalization measure on the ballot for November elections. This week, he wavered on that promise and said that the ballot measure would not likely be possible before the November 2020 elections.

Council member Tamaya Dennard was one of the “no” votes on the ordinance, and not because she doesn’t believe in the legalization of cannabis. Rather, Dennard was not on board for any plan that did not provide immediate expungement of past low level cannabis-related offenses.

That concern is well-founded, based on the vast racial discrepancies that were uncovered by a study conducted by the city’s law department. Between January 2004 and May 2019, 16,817 marijuana-related arrests were made. Of this number, 86.2 percent of those arrested were Black. According to the latest US Census, Black people make up only 42.85 percent of the city’s population.

“These are alarming numbers when we start talking about creating a permanent underclass, said Smitherman, referring to the difficulties that such offenses on an individual’s record can cause in terms of finding employment.

Ohio passed House Bill 523 in 2016, which legalized medical marijuana. But establishing the licensing process provided unexpected delays, and the first dispensaries did not start opening their doors until early 2019.

Recently, a committee run through the state medical board considered expanding the program by four new health conditions, eventually deciding to reject the inclusion of depression and insomnia as qualifying conditions and recommend the addition of anxiety and autism. Those recommendations will now be considered by the medical board.
In March, the range of products that could be legally available for purchase by medical marijuana users expanded past the previous restriction to flower to include edibles, oils, tinctures, and corporal creams.

Earliest known signs of cannabis smoking unearthed in China | Science

Scorched wooden incense burners unearthed at an ancient burial ground in the mountains of western China contain the oldest clear evidence of cannabis smoking yet found, archaeologists say.

Residues of high potency cannabis found in the burners, and on charred pebbles placed inside them, suggest that funeral rites at the 2,500-year-old Jirzankal cemetery in the Pamir mountains may have been rather hazy affairs.

Scientists believe the stones were heated in a fire before being transferred to the wooden braziers and covered with cannabis, which duly billowed psychoactive smoke. With music as an accompaniment, the heady fumes may have prompted those present to attempt to commune with nature, spirits or the dead.

Researchers have found remnants of cannabis at ancient sites in Central Asia before, but the latest discovery points to the intentional use of plants with high levels of the active compound, THC, and to cannabis being inhaled rather than ingested.

“There has been a longstanding debate over the origins of cannabis smoking, there are many speculative claims of ancient use,” said Robert Spengler at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History. “This study provides the earliest unambiguous evidence for both elevated chemical production in the plant and also for the burning of the plant as a drug.”

The discovery came about when Chinese archaeologists ran tests on 10 wooden braziers they excavated at the Jirzankal cemetery. They suspected the burners had a ritual role at the site and hoped the analyses would provide some answers.

The scientists scraped material off the burners and four of the charred stones and analysed the pieces with a procedure called gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy. The sensitive technique can detect minuscule amounts of chemical residues.

“To our excitement we identified the biomarkers of cannabis, notably chemicals related to the psychoactive properties of the plant,” said Yimin Yang at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. Specifically, the scientists found cannabinol, a substance produced when THC is oxidised. Given the lack of other cannabis breakdown products, the scientists believe the plants were selected to be high in THC, but whether they were cultivated or found in the wild is unclear.

Alongside the wooden burners and blackened stones, archaeologists excavated wooden plates and bowls, glass beads, pieces of silk and a Chinese harp, an instrument that often featured in ancient funerals and sacrificial ceremonies. The skeletons of individuals buried at the site have not been examined in detail, but some have holes in their skulls and what appear to be fatal cuts and breaks to their bones, raising the possibility that at least some of the dead were sacrificed.

“Nearly all the braziers contain the biomarkers of cannabis and one brazier is severely burned, implying that the braziers were being used during funeral rituals, possibly to communicate with nature, or spirits or deceased people,” Yang said, whose study appears in Science Advances.

The Jirzankal cemetery sits more than 3,000m (9,800ft) above sea level in an arid landscape patterned with parallel stretches of black and white stones. The entrances to individual tombs at the site, some of which hold varaious bodies, are marked by mounds surrounded by stone circles. The wooden braziers were found in the more elite tombs, the scientists said.

Little is known about the origins of cannabis smoking, but its use at the cemetery resonates with Herodotus’s written account from the 5th century BC. In his Histories, he described how people on the Caspian steppe in the mid-first millennium BC would sit in a small tent and burn the plants on hot stones in a bowl. Other evidence for cannabis use has shown up at burial grounds further north in China and in the Altai mountains of Russia.

Though remote today, the mountainous Pamir region may once have sat astride a busy trade route of the early Silk Road. If cannabis smoking originated there, or nearby, it may have helped to spread cannabis smoking from Central Asia around the world.

Denver Police Investigating Series of Break-Ins at Dispensaries • High Times

In Denver, Colorado, dispensary break-ins are pretty much par for the course. So far this year, police have reported around 35 break-ins at weed shops in the greater metro area. That’s more than one dispensary burglary each week, and about as many as police reported at this point last year. But now, police are investigating a new team of dispensary thieves that are bringing a new meaning to the term highway robbery. Investigators say a well-coordinated group of three to four, or possibly six people are robbing dispensaries along the area’s major highways. So far, the break-in investigation hasn’t made any breakthroughs. And fearing the dispensary burglars will soon strike again, Denver Police have issued a special alert to cannabis shop owners.

Denver Police Put City Dispensaries on “High Alert”

On Wednesday, Denver Police released the first picture of a group of car thieves and dispensary burglars that are wreaking havoc on Denver weed shops. The surveillance camera photo doesn’t reveal the identity of any of the burglars. They’re too well-concealed for that. But the photo clearly identifies the vehicle the burglars are using: a Jeep recently reported stolen.

Denver Police say the MO of the group involves stealing Jeeps then breaking into weed shops after hours. Using simple smash-and-grab tactics, the group is prying open dispensary doors and then just grabbing everything within reach.

Investigators believe the same group is responsible for dispensary break-ins across the whole Denver metropolitan area. But many of their robberies have targeted dispensaries located along interstates 70 and 25, the major highways running through Denver. The close proximity of the dispensaries to the highways makes for an easy getaway.

Legal Cannabis Shops May Be Linked to Higher Levels of Property Crime

Arguments for legalization often make the case that ending the criminalization of cannabis will reduce violent drug-related crime and make communities safer. And while it does appear to be the case that legalization hasn’t led to an increase in violent crime, it may be contributing to higher levels of property crime like break-ins, vandalism and robberies.

According to a three-year study conducted by researchers at Ohio State University, legal marijuana shops are causing higher levels of property crime in Denver. It’s not that crime is higher in the area immediately surrounding cannabis shops. Instead, it’s the adjacent areas that are experiencing higher rates of property crimes per year than neighborhoods without a nearby dispensary. According to researchers, areas near weed shops saw about 84 more property crimes per year over a three year period.

Alcohol Shops Still Cause More Crime than Weed Shops in Denver

Denver’s ongoing string of dispensary robberies is raising serious concerns about legalization and public safety, especially among opponents and skeptics. But putting the 34 dispensary robberies in Denver this year in context shows that in terms of crime, alcohol retailers impact community safety more than cannabis dispensaries do.

Data from the Ohio State University study shows that marijuana outlets contributed to 1,579 property crimes in Denver over 34 months. Comparatively, alcohol outlets contributed to 1,521 property crimes over the same period. But it was alcohol outlets that were responsible for roughly four times more violent crimes (372) than shops that sold marijuana (93) over the 34 month period.

So even though studies link legal marijuana sales to an increase in burglaries and other crimes at marijuana outlets themselves, weed sales aren’t making Denver communities any less safe than alcohol shops do.

Weed+Grub at the High Times Cannabis Cup • High Times

Like the biggest farmers’ market in the world, the Cannabis Cup has something for everyone. Podcasters Mike Glazer and Mary Jane Gibson a.k.a. Weed+Grub took the trip to San Bernardino to check it out.

On a cool and breezy Saturday morning at the recent High Times Cannabis Cup in San Bernardino, Weed+Grub rolled up to the Will Call window: “Hi, we’re Mike and Mary Jane!” A smiling gal handed us each a bright purple all-access pass with a taco on it. An all-access Taco Necklace? Things were off to an excellent start.


Mike puffed on a delicious live resin vape cartridge (Strawberry Lemonade, mmm) while Mary Jane chose a mellow half-gram preroll to start out the day with. We wandered around to get the lay of the land, and, more importantly, get snacks. Food vendors were busily feeding hungry stoners. Mary Jane opted for chicken tenders and fries, while Mike went with the cost-beneficial option of eating most of Mary Jane’s fries.


As we strolled through the Cup fairgrounds, weed vendors were fluffing buds, shining trophies and spinning prize wheels for giveaways. And happy Cup attendees were pulling out their best nugs, sitting down at picnic tables to roll and share joints with fellow cannasseurs. It was a great vibe.

One nifty product that immediately caught our attention as we wandered through the weed market was the Qubus. The brainchild of friends who met as engineering students, Qubus is a heavy-duty grinder, and an amazing statement piece. The innovative design includes a removable basket, a magnet-lock system and layers that you can mix and match for a custom color combo. This thing will look good on your coffee table.

We dropped by the Team Elite Genetics booth to sniff jars of frosty flower and admire their collection of shining Cannabis Cups—which they added to the very next day at the awards show, taking home another bunch of wins for finest flower and best concentrates. Hell yes Elite—congratulations! We wanna come hang out with you guys! DM us anytime.

It wouldn’t be a top cannabis event without one of the top dogs in the game representing: Moxie. We tried the new Dart pen, with its proprietary pod. Weed tech is tight. And Moxie has all the best flavors, from Strawberry Limeade to Blood Orange to Sour Apple Haze. Don’t they sound like the most delicious slurpees of all time?

After visiting Super VIP and helping ourselves to CBD-infused cold brew from Buddha Beans Coffee, we got to judge a joint rolling competition along with High Times senior cultivation editor Danny Danko. Shout out to the winner Martin, who rolled the perfect fatty to beat out some pretty stiff competition—we smoked it with him as the clock hit 4:20!


Afterwards, Danko sat down with us to chat about what the Cannabis Cup means to him. He recalled his perfect smoking moment, when he sat down in a coffeeshop to smoke his first legal joint back in the ‘90s, before cannabis was legal anywhere in the US:

“I had like a real kind of genuine epiphany… I was sitting in a coffeeshop. I had just bought some weed, and it was morning. And I looked out the window and people are going by on their bicycles, and I looked across at the other tables and people were from all different countries, and there was a girl rolling her own spliff and reading the paper with a cup of coffee, and it all just felt so civilized and normal and special. And all these emotions flooded over me, and I genuinely had the feeling of, this is how it can be back home.”

“I love cannabis so much, and I just knew how much was wrong with the way we were treating it here [in the USA] and in so many other places. And then to be, to be in a place like [Amsterdam] and feel that way, and just know that it’s possible. It’s truly an honor to have been to any small part of that change, you know? And it still needs to keep going—a long way.”


Gave us chills, for real. Danko’s passion for the plant, awesome weed knowledge and his great sense of humor make him the most fun hang ever. After wiping our misty eyes, we headed over to the main stage with Danko, where we jumped up and down with Girl Talk in celebration of life, the leaf, and everything good.

We’re grateful to know so many wonderful people in the weed world, and we love doing what we do best—smoking, snacking, and cracking up. It was a fantastic weekend, and we look forward to many more. Thanks High Times!

How LGBTQ People Helped Advance Cannabis Legalization • High Times

The fight to advance cannabis access bares a strong resemblance to that of the advancement of LGBTQ rights. Often, it is because they are so intertwined. Several people spoke to High Times for this piece and delved into the topic.

“The cannabis movement has been known as mostly a progressive issue during its eighty-year-plus prohibition, coming ‘out of the shadows’ in the late seventies. This is a similar story for LGBTQ individuals, with the gay rights movement really taking off around the same time and both facing heavy stigma’s in the public eye,” emailed Kyle Porter, president of CMW Media and a member of the community himself.

Porter added, “LGBTQ individuals are no stranger to persevering forward without the support of society or the law and this tenacity could have only helped the emerging legal cannabis industry.”

Celeste Miranda is a cannabis entrepreneur and member of the LGBTQ community as well. The CEO of MACE Media and founder of the Original CBD Expo Tour explained how the intangibles LGBTQ people embody make them ideal for advancing the cause.

“LGBTQ people are persistent, simply from endured challenges [throughout] the years. The fight to legalize cannabis falls in line with the persistence to push a cause through. It’s not new to this community, it’s expected,” said Miranda in a written reply.

Michael Klein identifies as LGBTQ and is the CEO of cannabisMD. He’s also worked with MTV and Conde Nast to name a few high profile roles. He noted how the community has been at the frontlines of change. “That kind of forward-looking approach helps break down barriers and reduce any residual stigma or fears that communities have as legalization continues to be a reality around the globe. And yet it goes deeper than that,” he said.

Klein likened cannabis prohibition to the Stonewall Uprising—the violent pushback and protests against a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in June of 1969. The event would give birth to the Pride parades today.

“Both are personal and emotional in myriad ways. Another community is fighting for what they believe is a just cause—this time, legalization of a plant —in which some government and law enforcement officials are felt to be the barrier. In 1969, LGBTQ were fighting the good fight.” Klein added, “And this year the NYPD officially apologized for what happened. Perhaps in 50 years cannabis will be recalled the same way.”

Persistence in the LGBTQ community includes serving as some of the founders of the early cannabis movement. Notable figures include Dennis Peron. Arend Richard is a member of the community and founder of TheWeedTube, a venture birthed out of cannabis content creators struggles with YouTube and app stores. He touched on Peron’s importance to both LGBTQ and cannabis rights in an email.

“Dennis Peron was a pivotal figure – he was a gay man in San Francisco who sold marijuana and witnessed firsthand how cannabis helped mitigate nausea and other painful symptoms experienced by AIDS patients. This led to him spearheading a successful campaign to legalize medical marijuana in California.”

Peron was an Air Force veteran who was active in advocating for the rights of both communities he belonged to. In the late ’80s, Peron’s partner would be diagnosed with AIDS. This only furthered his passion for cannabis as a therapeutic option. It then amplified when his home was raided, and he lost over four ounces of marijuana that his partner — now under 100 pounds — used to get through the day. From there, his determination would be on display for the rest of his life. One major highlight included the passage of medical marijuana in California.

The same can be said of people like Harvey Milk. Peron and Milk formed a bond as activists in San Francisco’s Castro District. In 1977, Milk would become the first openly gay public official elected in America. Unfortunately, he would be assassinated, along with the city’s Mayor, by a former work colleague in November of 1978.

The Bay Area served as the epicenter of both movements thanks to work by Milk, Peron and others like Mary Jane Rathburn, better known as Brownie Mary. The senior with a notably foul mouth was beloved in the LGBTQ community thanks to her edibles, activism and other contributions. Despite being arrested three times, Brownie Mary continued to provide the city’s AIDS patients medical edibles to ease their symptoms. Like Peron and Milk, the passing of Brownie Mary brought out the city to mourn and honor the life of one of the community’s ardent allies.

The effort continues today, now expanding across the cannabis industry. Advocates continue to fight for the advancement of marijuana rights while giving their all to ensure that fairness for LGBTQ people is preserved in America and advanced elsewhere in the world. Today, these individuals can be found everywhere from media and entertainment to the campaign trails.

They include Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg. The openly gay candidate has not been the most vocal cannabis supporter but has gone on record about the dangers of synthetic cannabinoids. He’s also advocated for criminal justice reform, including preparing individuals affected by the War on Drugs for life post-prison. An even more progressive example would be Colorado’s Governor, Jared Polis. The first openly gay Governor in the U.S. is an ardent supporter of cannabis and is expected to sign a bill decriminalizing psilocybin in Colorado soon.

Miranda, Richard and Porter all represent areas in media advancing cannabis access and equality for the LGBTQ community. Porter explained how the cause now has many more supporters that extends way beyond the Bay Area.

“I personally know hundreds of LGBTQ industry members, from CEOs to budtenders, who believe in the plant as much as they believe in who they are.” He added, “Without exact statistics, I can confidently say that LGBTQ people have been an integral part of this cause, whether publicly or not, and continue to be leaders and advocates striving for destigmatization and legalization.”

Two other notable names include writer and media personality Dan Savage, who is launching SPLIFF, a marijuana-themed movie festival that bills itself as “a film festival made by the stoned for the stoned.” Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race will know the name Laganja Estranja whose performances are about as fierce as their passion for cannabis legalization. Laganja is also quite active on social media, educating people and answering questions about the plant.

The history shared by cannabis and LGBTQ rights is deep. It appears only to be growing along with the acceptance of both. Now, instead of struggling to garner support like in past eras, many platforms believe they can leverage their bases, LGBTQ or otherwise, and advance both causes. That includes TheWeedTube, who is raising money for The Trevor Project, a 24/7 suicide hotline for young LGBTQ community members. Their goal is to raise $10,000.

Here’s to both receiving their equal rights sooner than later.
