This Cannabis Brand Creates Opportunities For Black and Brown Communities

We need more endeavors like this.

Not only does Good Green sell three quality cannabis strains, but they’re on a mission for the greater “good.” Good Green is bigger than a brand; it’s a movement that strives to bring cannabis, responsible consumers, and change-making organizations together to create “real, sustained progress against the War on Drugs,” reads their website

There’s something about reform and positive change that brings passionate and forward-thinking people together to create opportunities for progress, even when these issues surround destructive, illogical, and deeply ingrained notions.

For this reason, Good Green wants to create and provide opportunities while demanding social equity for Black and Brown communities disproportionately affected by the War on Drugs. In order to execute this effectively and reverse the damage caused by discriminatory policing and unjust laws from the War on Drugs, Good Green will offer investments to the many organizations putting in the work to help underserved communities thrive.

Good Green offers a grant program with unrestricted funding on a “rolling basis.” Good Green will offer these grants to 501(c)3 nonprofits that create change coinciding with the company’s three pillars; education, employment, and expungement.

Not only does Good Green strive to offer quality and reliable cannabis, but much of the company’s efforts go towards their organizations creating education and career training for individuals and communities directly impacted by the War on Drugs. In terms of employment, Good Green wants to create employment opportunities within the cannabis industry and ensure they’re accessible to communities most affected by unjust cannabis laws.

Good Green hopes to create a path towards broad and sustainable career opportunities for those most impacted by the War on Drugs. Regarding the third pillar, expungement, Good Green strongly advocates for the clemency of non-violent cannabis charges across the U.S. Those granted clemency can rely on Good Green to help offer resources and criminal justice services to help efface records. 

Good Green also offers a grant program open only to organizations tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 of the United States Code. In addition, these organizations must be a charity, and representatives submitting on behalf of a registered charity must have the power to bind the qualifying charity to Good Green’s application requirements, which you can find here

There are five grants available at a minimum of $60,0000. These funds are unrestricted but should go towards marginalized communities affected by the War on Drugs while focussing on the three pillars of education, employment, and expungement.
