June is Pride Month and is celebrated annually in honor of the Stonewall riots, which worked to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning Americans. This uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against those in the LGBTQ+ community.
Pride Month means a lot to us here at From The Earth and we want a way to give back to the LGBTQ+ community! So we have taken the time to compile a list of products that focus on not just proudly sporting the rainbow flag, but also, are donating a portion of their proceeds to amazing charities and organizations that render aid to the LGBTQ+ community.
FTE – Rainbow Sticker
To kick off this list, look no further than our website! Purchase a product featuring a rainbow sticker from our cannabis dispensary and we will donate 5% of the proceeds to the Trevor Project, which is an amazing organization that helps LGBTQ+ youth. The Trevor Project leads the nation in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention for young people under 25.
If you’re looking for a great option from our website, be sure to check out the Hi-Boy Cranberry Sage beverage. Bursting with flavor, it’s sweet, tart, and just a little bit savory. This refreshing drink would be a great go-to for any Pride celebration. It boasts 5.0 THC per can.
Not only are PLUS gummies delicious and pack 100mg of THC in each tin, they taste all the sweeter knowing that with your purchase, 10% proceeds also go directly to the San Francisco-based Transgender, Gender-variant, and Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP). Their featured Pride product includes their limited edition rainbow sherbert gummies. Cannabis-infused and sure to put you in the festive mood, be sure to grab a tin before they’re gone, as they are only available for a limited time!
KIVA – Camino Gummies
Tropical Punch Camino is another great option if you’re on the prowl for a delicious gummy product that also focuses on giving back to the LGBTQ+ community. The lead developer spearheaded the project as a way to pay homage to her LGBTQ+ family as well as the vibrant and iconic drag queen community in San Francisco.
Every element of the product was engineered to reflect being an ally of diversity, equality, and inclusion. From the color, to the flavor, to the shine of the gummy, even down to the locations portrayed on the packaging, Camino is there to celebrate all things Pride. Available for a limited time only, Kiva uses proceeds from these products to donate to three charities: GLBT Historical Society, Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
Kush Queen Bath Bombs
In an effort to celebrate the combined history and shared progress of the cannabis and LGBTQ+ community, Kush Queen has put together their 2021 Pride Edition CBD Bath Bomb. Without the incredible people who fought to overturn Proposition 215, our access to cannabis would be almost non-existent. Because of the community activism led by the LGBTQ+ community, California was able to adopt the first medical cannabis legislation in the US in 1996, which then opened the doors for AIDS patients and many others to have access to plant medicine.
Our skin is our largest organ and is essential in absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. Not only that, but it faces the elements every day, acting as a protective shield for the rest of our bodies. So treat it to something nice with their limited edition bath bomb! Glow in the dark and packed with CBD and essential oils, discover unparalleled relief while you kick back and relax. Proceeds from Kush Queen Pride Products will be used to positively impact the lives of the LGBTQ+ community. Check out your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in stock!
At Recreate, they are honored to give back to the LGBTQ+ community with each purchase. Their Proud Partners this year are two amazing organizations. One is Equality California which sets out to advance civil rights and social justice to institutions of power in California as well as across the United States. The other is One Colorado, which is the state’s leading advocacy organization dedicate to advancing equality for LGBTQ Coloradans and their families, lobbying the General Assembly, the executive branch, and local governments on important topics such as safe schools, transgender equality, relationship recognition, and LGBTQ+ health and human services.
When you purchase one of these two great products from Recreate, one dollar from each purchase gets donated toward the aforementioned organizations. If you love a cannabis beverage, you need to check out their blueberry mint acai sparkling elixir. It’s a limited edition product but doesn’t make it limited in quality. With 2.5 mg of CBD and 2.5 mg of THC in each can, you’re sure to experience a refreshing beverage and an energized high, perfect for getting into the Pride spirit.
Don’t forget to grab a package of mixed fruit gummies! These make the perfect addition to any Pride festivities, as they are invigorating and uplifting. Fast-acting and with 10mg of CBD and 10mg of THC in each pack, you’re definitely going to enjoy this delicious and easily portable treat.
Rainbows Are So Much More
Sometimes, with Pride Month, marketing and branding can be a little deceptive. Who is really giving back to the community in need, and who is simply using the rainbow flag as a means to scoop up business from LGBTQ+ patrons? We hope this list has proven to be insightful and made you aware of some of the wonderful companies out there who are truly partnering to make a difference.
This Pride Month, spark up, roll up, or drink up – we have a lot to celebrate! The work may not be done, but hopefully, with the proceeds given to all of these incredible organizations, we can continue to make headway into changing the lives of the LGBTQ+ community for the better.
