Mark your calendars, because 4/20 is not the only day of the year to nationally celebrate the medicinal and recreational properties of cannabis. March 28 is National Weed Appreciation Day and we would hate for you to miss out on the celebration. Here are a few black-owned dispensaries around the country to ensure you are properly equipped for the day.

SimplyPure

The first black woman-owned dispensary in Denver, Colorado, SimplyPure serves a variety of vegan edibles, flowers, and operates a small-batch farm that was voted the Best Flavor Champion at Colorado’s 2018 The Grow Off Competition. Their passionate budologists work to constantly educate newcomers and frequent consumers alike on safe, sustainable, and beneficial cannabis products.
