We had to start this list out with one of our favorite cannabis lifestyle brands, Jane Parade! According to their website, Jane Parade was founded in Brooklyn, NY in 2018 with the female cannabis consumer in mind. Each of their products and designs is “subtle in concept, with a playful approach” and their mission is to “change the image of women who toke.” Their product lineup is absolutely amazing and ranges from t-shirts and sweatshirts to art prints and keychains. They also have a pretty neat blog that you can check out here!
