Meet Our Women-Owned Brands 2020
Sava was founded by three women wanting to create the cannabis shopping experience we saw missing from the world - a highly curated source of top quality products that provided transparency into where products come from and information on how to use them.
Being a women-founded company, it felt important to us to foster inclusivity in the industry. That’s why we commit to always having half of the brands on our platform be women-owned.
Did you know you can shop by women-owned brands?
At Sava, we are women supporting women in the cannabis industry and beyond.
In honor of International Women’s Day this coming weekend, we wanted to take a moment to highlight our amazing family of women-owned brands. Read their stories, and get inspired!
