Cannabis Brands and Products To Celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day

On June 21, we celebrate Canada’s Indigenous People’s Day 

The holiday recognizes and celebrates the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Metis Indigenous peoples of Canada. The day was established in 1996 and came from consultations and statements of support for a day by Indigenous groups. 

Previously named Aboriginal People’s Day, it was later changed to its current title in 2017. Since then, it’s been recognized as part of the Celebrate Canada program alongside Saint-Jean-Bapiste Day, Canadian Multiculturism Day and Canada Day. 

Canadian may wonder how to support Indigenous people on this day and the rest of the year. Educating themselves through reading about the community and culture is one way. Another way to do so is by supporting Indigenous-owned businesses.

With that in mind, consider checking out these Indigenous-owned cannabis brands. Let’s explore their histories. 

Red Market Brand

Since launching in June 2021, Red Market Brand has been making waves as a 100% First Nation-owned and operated cannabis business. The company is working to create a national network of Health Canada-approved First Nations Producers and products accessible to all Canadian adult consumers. Offerings include a single-flower 14g cola, Nishin (meaning “finest, best, good”), Niichii (meaning “my friend”) and Miiigwetch (meaning “thank you”). The strains are grown by Royal City Cannabis, based in Guelph, Ontario.

Seven Leaf

Established in 2013 in Akwesasne, a Mohawk First Nation territory on Cornwall Island, Ontario, Seven Leaf is a 100% Indigenous-owned and operated Licensed Producer. The business started under the former Access to Cannabis Act. When cannabis was legalized in 2018, Seven Leaf became the first Health Canada-licensed cannabis-growing facility on First Nations territory. Popular products from the company include these strong, flavourful hybrid stains: Island Cherry (Kawehnoke Eri'ko:wa in Mohawk), Island Sugar (Kiwanuka Otsi’kheta) and Milk & Cookiez (Onòn:ta & Karé:t) under the Sev7n brand.

SOVE7EIGN - BubbleG Z Live Rosin 510 Thread Cartridge - Sativa - 1g | Royal  Leafs Cannabis Dispensary

Grown by Indigenous people on Indigenous land, G13 Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid that’s a cross between G13 and Hawaiin Sativa. Pheno-hunted by craft growers at Seven Leaf, Canada’s first 100% Indigenous-owned and operated licensed producer, G13 Haze packs a spicy, woodsy, fruity aroma and nutty, fruity, earthy, yet sweet flavours. Live rosin is made from hand-bucked, frozen fresh flower. We use ice water to separate trichome heads from plant material, then freeze-dry to remove water. Once fully dehydrated, the oils are squeezed out using a rosin press and transformed into cart-stable liquid live rosin through our proprietary pressure tech process.

Hawaiian Pineapple is a Dole Whip x Cookies and Cream sativa cross. This sativa is known for its tropical aromas and the creamy taste of pineapple. Hawaiian Pineapple brings a 1.4% CBG score and high potency. Expect buds in sativa structure, with pink hues and coated in trichomes.
