Behind The Brand: Where There’s MedMen, There’s Something For You

Getting to know the industry-leading equity-focussed dispensary, MedMen.

Any list of the best dispensaries is incomplete without MedMen. With over 25 shops across six weed-loving states, they’ve quickly become the premium cannabis retailer in the country.

If you’ve ever stopped by one of their state-of-the-art dispensaries, you might have wondered who’s behind the brand and what they stand for.

After all, using your dollars with intent is something we highly advise. Giving to brands that give back is always a good idea, brands like MedMen that genuinely care for you, the community, and the social-equity efforts within our industry.

Behind The Brand

The shopping experience at MedMen is unparalleled. It’s often referred to as the Apple store of weed.

Before MedMen reached this reputable status, they were set on their vision to destigmatize cannabis through welcoming and accessible shopping environments.

As cannabis users and medical patients, we know the importance of having easy access to safe and effective cannabis products. Thankfully, MedMen was founded for all of us, the beginners, the seasoned users, the medical patients, and anyone who needs some form of relief through this sacred plant.

MedMen firmly believes that legalizing and regulating cannabis makes for a safe, healthy, and happy world. In their six regulated states, the dispensary proudly provides premium products with:

  • Education
  • Curation
  • Transparency

MedMen Gives Back

There wouldn’t be MedMen without our cannabis community. Besides offering a carefully-curated selection of products, MedMen believes in building the community and giving back locally and nationally.

They’ve proudly partnered with the following non-profit organizations:

  • LA Expungement Clinic
  • Greater Boston Legal Services Expungement Clinic
  • Equality CA
  • Feeding America
  • Brotherhood Crusade
  • CORE
  • The Downtown Women’s Center

That’s not all. With great power comes great responsibility. MedMen acknowledges there’s still plenty of work to be done to ensure communities affected by the War on Drugs have the means to shape and evolve our industry.

They’ve made remarkable commitments to ensure these communities have their rightful place in our developing industry. The following are just a few.

Shelf Space: MedMen‘s partnership with 15 Percent Pledge dedicates 15% of all shelf space to Black and Brown-owned brands.

Recruiting: MedMen partners with job re-entry organizations to find and recruit candidates from communities most affected by the War on Drugs.

Giving Back: A portion of sales from their in-house brand, MedMen Red, are distributed to BIPOC organizations with similar goals and values.

MedMen is a brand for the greater good. It’s a thriving dispensary that serves many purposes, all geared toward a safe, equitable, and welcoming cannabis industry.
