It’s Women’s History Month, and we’re here to celebrate the role of women in cannabis. It’s not just about toking it (though women are one of the fastest-growing groups of cannabis consumers), but also about what we’re up to in the industry itself.
“The future is female,” says Kristine Freeman. As a marketing manager at local Orange County weed brand Yummi Karma, she would know. The company was started by a pair of sisters, and is still woman-operated to this day.
Their unique products are made with women in mind. “We really work hard to make everything for a specific purpose,” she says, “so when we talk about our Mood Magic tincture for example, we’ve got this targeted herbal formula that’s been crafted to help women with PMS.”
Yummi Karma’s tinctures really are for everyone, though. “We are starting to say ‘tinctures that taste good.’” With flavors like vanilla, rainbow sherbet, and campfire s’mores, she isn’t kidding. So far, we haven’t found anyone who’s come close in taste.
Yummi Karma tinctures are 30% off at People’s from March 4th to March 7th, so make sure to pick up a few of your favorite flavors when you stop by our store. These drops are easy-to-dose and delicious, with no lingering cannabis flavors—just pure sweetness. Going by the flavor, it’s hard to believe they’re so rich in cannabinoids, but you’ll know when you feel the full effects.
The Perfect Pairing of Cannabis for Women, From Women
We love doubling up on our daily dose of cannabis, and the best way to do that is by combining Yummi Karma infusions with Kikoko Tea. Founded by a team of high-powered female best friends, Kikoko tea is for women who want to lift each other up and stay lifted.
THC tea makes a perfect pairing for Yummi Karma’s delicious drops in this recipe. Kick the lingering winter weather with this cannabis-infused chai tea latte.
How to Make a Cannabis Chai Tea Latte
Makes 1 serving. Recipe adapted from Oh, How Civilized.
- French press
Crush the cloves with the flat side of a knife.
Pour the milk into your saucepan. Add the cannabis tincture, teabags, cinnamon, and crushed cloves. Heat on medium-low until it begins to boil, then immediately bring down to simmer.
Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Place the strainer on top of the French press and strain the liquid through. Discard the teabags, cloves, and cinnamon stick.
Add the vanilla extract and honey.
Use the plunger to pump the liquid quickly at least 5 times. When it has doubled in volume, it is ready.
Pour the latte into a mug and enjoy immediately.
Kikoko Cannabis Tea and the Women Who Changed History
Cofounders and co-CEOs Amanda Jones and Jennifer Chapin were inspired to start making cannabis-infused teas when their good friend Jan was struggling with ovarian cancer. It was difficult to find products that offered a balanced dosage of cannabinoids and tasted great. They didn’t just want to create run-of-the-mill cannabis products—they wanted to brew up something unique.
“We’ve lost focus in our own culture about the healing properties of plants, including cannabis,” they say. Combining medicinal herbs like lemongrass and turmeric with the ultimate medicinal herb allowed them to craft the perfect experience for women suffering from health issues—as well as those who just want to have a good time.
