Today we begin adding companies that belong to the rapidly “growing” cannabis sector.
When we talk about this industry, we include many types of products. The traditional THC plants based products of course, but also CBD and hemp as well. Hemp being on of the most sustainable plants next to bamboo.
Cannabis is a low-impact plant that requires very little water, especially when compared to cotton. It is also pest resistant requiring little to no
pesticide thus reducing the amount that may find its way into water ways and public lands. Hemp fabric is made from the long strands of fibre that make up the stalk of the plant. Depending on how it’s processed and the dyes used, the end products can be very environmentally friendly.
The various compounds extracted from these plants are arguably more sustainable than their pharmacological equivalents.
A full 70% of millennials will pay more for products made sustainably, while 83% consider a product’s environmental or social impact before making a purchase. They are bringing that sense of responsibility for maintaining a livable planet to the cannabis industry which is populated with young, progressive entrepreneurs.

With the wide spread legalization of marijuana in both the US and Canada, we believe that adding this industry to our directory is simply embracing a larger environmental movement.
We hope that you find the cannabis businesses listed on our site both useful and as committed to being as green as we are.
