Bud Boss Babes: Celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8, 2024

International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements and contributions of women around the world. At Turning Leaf, we proudly support women-owned brands making a difference in the cannabis and wellness industries. From CBD skincare to artisanal candles, these brands empower women and create high-quality products that our customers love.

BLNCD Naturals

Created by Allison, Daniela, and Andrea, BLNCD Naturals is a women-owned brand that prioritizes ethical sourcing and quality control. Their products, made with USDA Certified Organic Hemp, are free from artificial flavors, GMOs, gluten, and animal products. From soothing CBD balms to delicious gummies, BLNCD Naturals offers our customers a complete range of wellness solutions. 

As a Turning Leaf “family brand,” BLNCD holds a special place in our hearts. Family brands are companies under the Global Organic Distro collective, with which we share joint offices, labs, and resources. And, sometimes, family brands are owned by our literal family members!

Botany Farms

As a minority and woman-owned craft cannabis company, Botany Farms has quickly become a Turning Leaf Customer and Team Member favorite for its quality and selection. Lauren, the Founder and Co-Owner, started Botany to grow cannabis with reverence for its complex capabilities and for people who want to enjoy its holistic benefits. Specializing in organic small-batch runs, they ensure each product meets their high standards. From premium gummies to potent concentrates, Botany Farms offers a large selection of cannabis products that cater to every preference.

Mi Sota Essence

Mi Sota Essence is a woman and Latina-owned cannabis company based in Eagan, MN. Founder Veronika Alfaro is a first-generation Mexican-American who works to elevate the Latin culture in the cannabis industry. Lovingly handcrafted in small batches, her products are made with all-natural ingredients. Mi Sota Essence is committed to creating products that make you feel good inside and out, from delicious beverages to luxurious skincare. Turning Leaf carries her signature Traditional Mexican Cookies and Tropical Haze THC Agua Fresca, the perfect party favors for your next gathering.


Headquartered in California, Modest&Co is committed to sustainability. All products are handcrafted in small batches, focusing on using reusable and vegan materials. Candles are created with ingredients like coconut and apricot wax – making them burn longer and cleaner than traditional candles. At Turning Leaf, we are proud to carry a variety of Modest&Co odor eliminating candles –– we love how their eco-friendly products are perfect for self-care rituals.
