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.
