5 Black-Owned CBD Brands To Add To Your Self-Care Routine

It comes as no surprise that the cannabis industry and the legalization of marijuana is yet another barrier that Black business owners face. A new report released by Grand View Research, Inc stated that the global legal marijuana market size is expected to reach $73.6 billion by 2027. However, many states have very specific guidelines that stand as barriers for many people of color looking to get into the cannabis business and Black and brown people are still serving harsher sentences for the possession and distribution of drugs than their white counterparts.

In tandem with that, Black people across the country lack the capital and access to venture into the marijuana business due to the various restrictions as to who can own cannabis businesses. While the fight continues to dismantle another area in which systemic racism oppresses our community, these business owners are propelling forward to be the diversity that the whitewashed wellness industry so desperately needs. Here are five Black-owned CBD brands to support with varying products.

1. brwnbox

The Jersey-based CBD dispensary founded by Almaz Adeigbolo offers everything from pre-rolls and honey, to bath bombs that reduce anxiety. They also sell strains of CBD flower to help with depression and insomnia. Additionally, Adeigbolo is also a chef, and she curates cannabis-infused culinary experiences with her boutique food company, brwnbox kitchen.

2. BROWN GIRL jane 

BROWN GIRL jane is owned by sisters Malaika and Nia Jones and beauty and wellness expert Tai Beauchamp. The Spellman grads started the company after Malaika fell in love with the healing properties of plants and CBD, and felt frustrated with the lack of representation of people of color. Their products range from facial serums to body butter and yoni oils.

Let the #celebration continue—it’s our 2nd birthday! Wooohoo! And yes, my celebration involves some @thepieholela Strawberry Cheesecake and sparking rosè poolside ☀️ . 2 years ago today Undefined made its debut at @indiebeautyexpo NYC and emerged a Consumer Favorite of the show and Glow Elixir (which looked quite different then) was nominated as Best Face Serum. Fast forward, NEW and MORE POWERFUL Glow Elixir launched this week, I’ve expanded into other innovative #CBDinfused formats, launched @nordstrom and my multi-branded retail platform @undefined_collective was just nominated as Best Small Indie Retailer by @beautyindependent Beacon Awards. What a whirlwind🌪 . It’s been such a fun journey to disrupt, reimagine and undefine plant-based beauty & wellness and I’m even more excited for what this next chapter has in-store (spoiler: more #plantmagic is coming). . To celebrate, I created a few NEW Glow Elixir 2.0 travel size babies so you can sample #ThatGlow available THIS WEEKEND ONLY. Even better, use code 2NDBDAY and get 50% off Glow Elixir travel size when you purchase alongside any of the #limitededition (and almost #soldout) GlowGetters like Glow Melt, Glow Balm or Glow Detox. Issa win-win. Celebrate with me and #GetTheGlow 😎 . . . . #birthday #itsmybirthday #2ndbirthday #bday #itsmybday #celebrategoodtimes #itsmybirthdaybitches #2yearsold #2yearanniversary #poolday #poolside #piehole #cheesecake #rosè #bubbly #newbeauty #cbdwellness #cbdskincare #cbdbeauty #shopblack #buyblack #shopindie #liveUndefined
