Love is Love with Pot & Pride – Celebrate with 4 LGBTQ Canna Brands

While almost every brand and company is celebrating June’s annual pride month, for cannabis it’s a bit morepersonal. As the plant’s legalization movement truly began side, by side, with the LGBTQ community during the AIDS epidemic in the ‘80s.

Lively activists then fought for medical marijuana use to treat the symptoms of HIV and AIDS, centralized in Nor Cal’s own San Francisco.

Today, the two communities continue to thrive hand in hand. So, if you’re seeking ways to get into the pride month spirit while celebrating cannabis’ too, how can you do so? Start here, with our ultimate guide to all things cannabis and pride with the brands who are elevating the LGBTQ x 420 connection.

#1 – CANN

Cann, was co-founded by Luke Anderson and Jake Bullock in Venice and the LGBTQ-owned company has been trending ever since it hit the shelves. The sparkling beverage is serving up the Cali-sober lifestyle with ‘social tonics’ that are infused with low doses of THC, and come hangover free. Even better? Each can is low-calorie, vegan, and gluten-free for all of those health-conscious, too.

For 2022 pride month, the company launched their ‘Taste So Good’ campaign which came equipped with an original song, and production that the brand calls ‘an iconic music video celebrating queer love, inclusivity & cannabis.’

While the song is stuck in your head, grab a Cann and feel the groove with flavors that are just as peppy. Like Grapefruit Rosemary, and Blood Orange Cardamom.

#2 – WYLD

Wyld is a fierce supporter of the LGBTQ community and partakes in cannabis and pride events, and advocacy year-round. The brand is a sponsor of Pride Northwest, in neighboring states Oregon and Washington, while also partnering with the LGBT center in Sacramento to help ‘address the many inequalities the LGBTQ communities are experiencing every day’.

In 2021, Wyld also launched a partnership with the Equality Federation to create exclusive Wyld x Pride t-shirts with 100% of sales donated to the advocacy group that helps fuel state-based LGBTQ movements, and legislation for equality coast-to-coast. At Wyld, the brand stands firm that their gummies aren’t ‘just a candy. It’s a culture.’ where they dedicate themselves to working towards a better future, and to motivate positive outcomes for ‘our people and planet’.

But speaking of candy, their naturally-flavored THC-infused gummies are seriously poppable. The little cubes of goodness are sugar-coated, sweet, and sour, and come with a variety of flavors and types to choose from. Like Sour AppleElderberry, indica and sativa options, and even CBD gummies, too. Pick yourself up a pack, to sweeten up your cannabis pride month celebration with a pride supporting brand.


Sonder is a Bay Area brand launched by Faun Chapin and M. Paradise in 2018 and began by producing aesthetically pleasing vape pens. The brand’s name was thoughtfully chosen with a definition described by themselves as ‘a moment of awareness. A connection to yourself, to others, and the world around you’. Or, by others, it’s defined as ‘the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own’ just adding to their accepting, inclusive and self-aware nature.

Today, the LGBTQ co-founded brand is reaching all new heights with its Space Crystals line of THC-infused popping crystals, reminiscent of our childhood fav’s Pop Rocks. Not only are

Space Crystals a unique, and fun way to consume cannabis, but they offer a twist on the typical effect onset time of edibles. Since you hold the crystals in your mouth and let them pop, rock, and roll, you’re technically, sublingually, consuming the THC and infused cannabinoids. That means the compounds are absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the sublingual artery found under the tongue.

By doing so, effects that kick in within 15 minutes vs 45 minutes to an hour with standard edibles, you’d swallow. With vibrant and eclectic flavors like Stoned Fruit, a combination of Apricot, Peach & Nectarine you’re guaranteed an explosion of good flavors and an extraordinary experience all around.


Another LGBTQ friendly brand to sip on at any pride event, is Wunder. These non-GMO and gluten free sparkling beverages are as refreshing in taste as they are in supporting the queer community. This year, the brand is sponsoring the West Hollyword Pride Parade, and is dedicated to maintaining values of inclusion, equity and diversity with everything they do.

Their colorful cans match all the pride aesthetics, and deliver ‘higher vibes’ with each THC-infused drop. We think Wunder’s Watermelon Basil and Grapefruit Hibiscus flavors would be the perfect pair to liven up your love is love festivities.
