Woman-Owned Cannabis in Michigan: Top 4 Brands to Try!

June 7, 2024

In a predominantly male-dominated space, as the cannabis industry grows so does the number of women in cannabis. This is fitting considering the female version of the plant is what produces high THC for consumption purposes (male plants are used for genetic breeding only!). 

Today, there are a variety of woman-owned cannabis brands across the US. Not only producing products with women’s specific needs, but quality flower, edibles, extracts, and even first-of-their-kind goods. 

So, who are some of these leading ladies in the space? If you’re interested in supporting female cannabis businesses here in Michigan and nationwide, this is the list for you. Keep reading for the top woman-owned cannabis brands to try. 

The Top Woman-Owned Cannabis Brands


Now, let’s all get in touch with the more feminine side of weed! Meet the top 4 woman-owned cannabis brands you can find here in Michigan. 

Calyxeum 

Longtime cannabis industry advocates and Detroit natives, Rebecca Colett and LaToyia Rucker, launched Calyxeum in 2019. Since then, the brand has been busy building its vertically integrated brand, which consists of two growing facilities and one processing facility. 

The last part of the puzzle? A retail store, which just recently opened (on 4/20 of this year!) in 

Southwest Detroit. The store will not only carry the brand’s signature brand of organic and responsibly cultivated superior-quality medical-grade cannabis and edible products but also premier goods from other Michigan producers. 

Lastly, the ladies are giving back to the community where they call home and in which they serve. Calyxeum Catalyst is the brand’s community-focused initiative, partnering with well-known, active, and accomplished community organizations to create programs and employment opportunities in the city. 

Kiva 


Family, and woman-owned, Kiva is one of the first edible brands to go nationwide. It began in 2010, in Colorado, when a couple who loves cannabis set out to create a high-end, or luxury edible experience. Kristi Palmer, and her husband, Scott, met with local chocolatiers and became inspired to make the first Kiva chocolate bar in their home kitchen way back when. 

Today, their chocolate bars are sold in Michigan, and 20+ states along with their expanded edible line of gummies, mints, and beyond. 

Mary’s Medicinals 


Mary’s Medicinals is another nationally recognized brand, founded by not just one but two women -  Lynn Honderd and Nicole Smith. This female cannabis business began as the founders left their high-powered corporate careers to start their new high-powered cannabis brand. 

Originally a Colorado company, Mary’s Medicinals can now be found on Michigan shelves and is responsible for the industry’s first-ever, and award-winning Transdermal Patch. A revolutionary consumption method for medicinal consumers, the adhesive patch offers a quick onset of effects and can relieve pain on any part of the body. 

In addition to advanced delivery methods, the company focuses on accurate dosages with a medicinal twist, specializing in tinctures, and more. 

Gal Pals Minis 

Last but not least, is the woman-owned cannabis pre-roll brand, Gal Pals Minis. The brand’s signature product, a 5-pack of .4g mini pre-rolls comes in a hot-pink tin. The idea behind the product is woman-centric, and specifically designed for those who are trying cannabis for the first time. 

The brand went through months of research and development, engaging hundreds of women to help them choose everything from the size of the pre-rolls to the potency and strains. That includes a unique “activity” card in every tin suggesting fun things to do post-sesh.

Even more? Every Gal Pals Mini purchased gives back to women, too, with a portion of sales getting donated to a Michigan breast cancer charity.
