LOS ANGELES (March 6th, 2020 ) – In celebration of International Women’s History Month, MedMen is continuing its partnership with the Downtown Women’s Center, a local Los Angeles organization which aims to end homelessness for women through employment, advocacy, and housing. Throughout the month of March, MedMen will donate 10% of sales from female-led cannabis companies: Humboldt Apothecary, Kikoko, Mellows, and Potli.
Humboldt Apothecary, founded by Susan Cleverdon and Gillian Levy, offers an array of tinctures. Stemming from the founders’ combined 25 years of experience as herbalists, the brand is committed to sustainable, environmentally friendly practices and quality ingredients.
Kikoko, founded by Amanda Jones and Jennifer Chapin is a collection of cannabis-infused teas, honey, tinctures, and mints. Inspired by their friend’s battle with cancer. Kikoko aims to bring joy and relief through low-dose edibles.
Mellows, founded by Stephanie Hua (a professionally trained chef and cookbook author), are award-winning gourmet cannabis-infused marshmallows redefining the edibles experience. The full spectrum, solventless, single-strain infusion truly sets them apart from other edibles. Handcrafted in San Francisco, Mellows is committed to destigmatizing, normalizing, and elevating cannabis consumption.
Potli, founded by Christine Yi and Felicity Chen, is the premium purveyor for the modern, cannabinoid-enhanced kitchen pantry. From olive oil to raw honey to chili oil, Potli provides top quality, delicious, and easy to integrate products to your kitchen.
