In March we take time to celebrate Women’s History, also known as Women’s Month. Women’s month is an opportunity to celebrate and reflect on women’s achievements, as well as the problems they have faced in the struggle to be free and the important role they continue to play in society.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Berkeley Patients Group is partnering with women-led cannabis brands to support the health, development, and achievement of our womxn community members.
Berkeley Patients Group launched our $1 Million For Good initiative back in October, supporting ten nonprofits working to uplift our local community. Each month, BPG will drive funds and awareness to one of our nonprofit partners. This March, celebrate everything women have fought for by shopping at BPG and supporting Supernova Women.
