There are a world of history makers in cannabis. A lot of them women. This industry has its “grass ceiling” problems. But it’s also full of liberating opportunities. As a send off for Women’s History Month, Peake Releaf is celebrating our female team members and highlighting their stories. Here’s a look into the lives of..
It’s apart of our mission to do whatever is (ethically) possible to bolster patient advocacy in Maryland. So far we’ve covered tips for discussing medical cannabis with your family and community. And we also push for an inclusive experience for all patients, especially those of color who may have paid a major price thanks to..
In cannabis, everyone loves preaching “End the Stigma.” But when do we take time to apply that to racial disparities related to our favorite federal troublemaker? Legislation rode the coattails of social equity to initiate what we have today. And that means that while many were paying lip service to the suffering of communities of..
With the swoons (or despair) of Valentine’s Day behind us, it’s time to shed the light of Black History Month onto the cannabis industry! Sure, there is some progress happening.

Where do you go when you want to cross-check an article you stumble across and you feel in your deepest heart of heart that something is..
The holidays are upon us and that means family gatherings and “the Talk.” The cannabis talk that is. The green renaissance is upon us with more states legalizing and hemp becoming legal.

#ReLeafIsHere. We’ve used the hashtag #ReLeafIsComing leading up to our grand opening, and the usage of that hashtag has been accompanied by educational videos, inforgraphics, community engagement events, and more. We believed that before we even opened our doors it was our responsibility to introduce, and in some cases re-introduce, ourselves to the neighborhood that..
