The Black Box Project was founded by Los Angeles-based dispensaries and brands to support black-owned cannabis businesses.

A number of black-owned social equity licensees have banded together to support The Black Box Project in honor of Black History Month.

The Black Box Project was founded by Los Angeles-based dispensaries and brands to highlight the importance of social equity and inclusion in the cannabis industry while supporting black-owned cannabis businesses, according to a press release.

Dispensaries involved in The Black Box Project include Josephine & Billie’s, Gorilla Wellness RX, Sixty Four & Hope, Mid-City, and Sixty Four & Hope, Melrose District. 

The collaboration between the companies introduces consumers to a range of black-owned cannabis businesses and brands, including: 3.5g of Daniel LaRusso (Ball Family Farms); 1g preroll of Laura Charles (Ball Family Farms); 3.5g of Clubber Lang (Ball Family Farms x Sixty Four & Hope); 5g preroll 2-pack (Wyllow); 1g Juseyo Wedding Cake preroll (Biko); 1g Cherry Gelato (Justice Tree); 510-thread rechargeable battery (House of Tyne); 3.5g 10-count preroll pack (Viola Brands); and 1g House Cured Resin Concentrate (Gorilla RX); and more. 

“It is absurd that we live in a world where black people are still the most likely to get arrested for cannabis, and the least represented in the legal market,” says Whitney Beatty, CEO of Josephine & Billie’s. “We need customers to stand with us and show the industry that an inclusive supply chain matters.

The Black Box Project is available now at participating dispensaries.
