It’s Pride month, and PAX is thrilled to be supporting local LGBTQ+ organizations across the US in celebration of this incredible community. PAX is committed to establishing cannabis as a force for good, which means supporting and uplifting the individuals and communities who’ve paved the way for the cannabis industry. This is especially true for the LGBTQ+ community, who has fought tirelessly to advocate for the healing benefits of cannabis. Check out some of the state-wide initiatives going for the month of Pride and beyond to see how you can support the organizations doing the work.
We’ve teamed up with Brand Partners on limited edition PAX ERA pods for the month of June. From Leune, you can get the Hot Honey pod, and from Jetty Extracts you can get the fan favorite Reckless Rainbox pod.
