By donating to our campaign you can help expand the reach of The Cannabis Doula and help us fulfill our mission in providing woman and family-centered cannabis education, care, and support to families across various communities.
Current donations go toward supporting our mobile app (launching in December 2022) and supporting our Incarcerated Parent and Cannabis Education Program in Washington DC.
The mission of The Cannabis Doula is to support and advocate for women and families who choose to consume cannabis by providing family-centered cannabis education, workshops, events, and a range of holistic birth doula services, culturally-competent childbirth education, and professional cannabis caregiver services.
Cannabis has been used to support women and families, especially for reproductive health and womb wellness, since the earliest known uses of the cannabis plant. Due to stigma, shame, and racial injustice, cannabis was outlawed and communities who have traditionally used cannabis have been criminalized, our families have been torn apart, and our communities were ravaged by the war on drugs—the lasting trauma, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress is still untreated in many victims and their families. As medical cannabis use is being legalized all over the country, and globally, The Cannabis Doula seeks to mobilize women, especially women of color, to reclaim our ancient and traditional use of the cannabis plant; free of stigma, propaganda, and misinformation.
Our global mission is to reclaim and reconnect people of the African diaspora with cannabis, a plant that was spread all over the world, largely by our ancestors who were victims of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Our native and indigenous use and cultivation of hemp, as well as our instinctual knowledge and expertise of the cannabis plant, has survived tremendous hardship, and unsurmountable odds. Our belief is that we must collectively heal to overcome these grave injustices, and Shatter the Stigma related to our cannabis use— in order to learn, grow, and evolve as holistic, and knowledgable cannabis consumers; turning poison into medicine.
Since launching The Cannabis Doula in 2018, we have have had the tremendous honor of supporting women and families, both nationally and internationally, from DC to LA to Puerto Rico, and in places like Canada, Mexico, South Africa, and the Netherlands. Through social media, consultations, classes, workshops and events, and numerous podcasts interviews, we’ve empowered women to address the stigma in their lives and implement holistic, safe cannabis use into their health and wellness regimes, and to support their individual families and unique communities.
All funds donated to the Shatter the Stigma Campaign will be used in the following areas. Help us reach our $30,000 goal.
