According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, about every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Globally, it is the most common type of cancer among women, but it can be diagnosed in men as well, affecting each gender regardless of size, race, or income level. There are over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today.
Although scientific and technological advancements in the cancer research realm continue to move forward, we are still in the beginning stages to finding a cure for this common genetic disease.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month brings special attention to the cause, and those in the cannabis space have joined the fight. Below, check out which dispensaries and brands are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness by offering special products, deals, and donations supporting breast cancer research.
For the entire month of October, PhytoFamily is donating a generous 50% of proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation with purchases from their luxurious SuperFluid line. I’ve personally been using their silky CBD Rosehip Oil—ingredients include organic rosehip and full-spectrum distillate—every night and have already seen improvements and brightness in my skin. Beautify and soothe while supporting an incredible cause.
