You know them, you love them. Cann is everyone’s favorite microdosed tonic that’s bringing a new definition to social drinking, but the brand has much bigger plans for the near future.
As cannabis continues to legalize throughout the states, brands and entrepreneurs are turning their attention to equity, aiming to right the wrongs of the anti-cannabis laws that have targeted Black Americans and other POC for decades. With this intent, Cann has partnered with us to uplift Copper House Detroit, an organization creating a safe space and destination for cannabis education, activism and community in Detroit, with a focus on healing and rest for Queer and Black folks.
From May 15 – June 15, Cann will donate $1 for every product sold on Eaze, with Eaze matching up to the first 1,000 units. If you order a Cann product during this time, your purchase will help support queer Black folks use cannabis in a safe space in Detroit, as well as supporting the expansion of Detroit Copper House.
Born out of Cannaclusive, Cannabis for Black Lives (CfBL) is a coalition of cannabis companies galvanizing the broader industry to support Black-led organizations and communities through a commitment to corporate hiring & company culture, amplification of Black voices, and financial support with ongoing accountability measures.
Founded by couple Jess and Cara Jackson, Copper House Detroit aims to provide healing and love to marginalized communities that are still 10 times more likely to be arrested for cannabis, while still only accounting for less than 4% of ownership within the legal cannabis market. Because of this injustice, the Jacksons are determined to keep their home open for cannabis education, activism, and community.
Both women have extensive experience in the cannabis industry and in advocacy and communications.
Cara Jackson is a cultivator who works for a vertically-integrated grow facility in Southeast Michigan. With a degree in ecology, her passion for plants is no secret. Her past work includes urban agriculture and parks and recreation. She dreams that cannabis will one day be fully accessible and local for Detroit residents.
Jess Jackson, MBA, M.E.D., is a content marketing strategist, writer, designer, community architect, educator, and healing practitioner. With over a decade of experience in education and community advocacy, she is also the co-owner of LOUD.social, a content marketing design firm that has launched a series of community-focused campaigns.
The women have opened their homes to Detroit’s cannabis community, encouraging anyone who passes through to explore the neighborhood and all it has to offer.
Copper House Detroit hosts many queer and Black founders who are looking to find a space among likeminded individuals within the industry–a true home away from home for anyone in the cannabis community who feels like they never had a place. A place to unwind, relax, breathe, and connect.
So far, the business has activated events like The Garden Party (an educational event aimed to promote urban farming and hemp/cannabis cultivation), The Take Off (a self-care and healing exposition centering on Black female cannabis entrepreneurship), Queen Xpressions (an intimate night of immersive experiences focused on queer POC), and Blazing Silence (an educational event for sharing resources related to workplace discrimination).
With summer around the corner, it’s an ideal time to turn to Cann for your cannabis needs, anyway. Microdosed to allow for a sessionable experience and with an onset of 10-15 minutes, you’ll be feeling good in no time–and doing good, in the same sip.
