5 Dispensaries To Visit During Pride Month
Pride Month is nearly gone, but it’s still time to treat yourself and support LGBTQ+ community. Cannabis and LGBTQ+ have a long intertwined history, and to this day, weed helps queer people to fight stress, drug and emotional abuse, and health issues connected with discrimination and mistreatment.
Here go five dispensaries and deliveries which are owned or known to support their respective LGBTQ+ communities. Make sure you visit — or if you live somewhere else, make sure to check your local dispensaries — we’re pretty sure you will be surprised these days!
Seattle, WA / Shoreline, WA
The dispensary is a member of the Greater Seattle Business Association, which promotes equality and is the largest LGBT and allied chamber of commerce in the world. During the pride month, Dockside runs its Cannabis + Cinema program by pairing movies with strains and products.
The dispensary employs multilingual budtenders and promotes equality and acceptance. During the pride month, Uncle Ike’s donates 5% of all profits to Entre Hermanos, a non-profit that supports the health and well-being of Latino LGBTQ+ community.

Delivery’s owner Leon Mostovoy is a trans man and has been an artist and activist in the LGBTQ+ community for over 30 years. He created two intergenerational projects with homeless youth and elders at the LA LGBT Center. His product company, Pride Cannabis, donates $1 per sale to the Center’s Senior Service Department and support elders who helped to create and elevate today’s LGBTQ+ community.
San Francisco, CA
The dispensary is proudly gay-owned and operated by Erich Pearson. SPARC hosts a monthly Dab Queens drag show event. During the pride, customers get a bunch of attractive perks and deals, including Pride specials.
The co-owner Melissa Egan aimed to build affordable housing for LGBT seniors. She spent time raising money for this goal, and eventually begin to work in the cannabis industry. All the profits go to social justice and the community.
Rejoice and be proud!
