Our Story

Cannabis has an inclusivity issue.

And we intend to solve it.

Cannaclusive was created to facilitate fair representation of minority cannabis consumers. We were inspired by the growing opportunities yet disappointed by the diversity issues taking root in mainstream cannabis culture.

At Cannaclusive we celebrate the cultures of this thriving community through curated experiences, groundbreaking insights, thoughtful content and dynamic visuals. We make it easier for brands to communicate with diverse audiences and ensure that minority consumers are not an afterthought, but a valued ally in the fight for legalization and destigmatization.

“I honestly think that this is the last shot [at] generational wealth for people of color, given the way that the economy is about to shift and change,” Mary Pryor, co-creator of Cannaclusive, a weed-centric photography and financial education firm, said. “The disparity between the middle class [and upper classes] is getting worse and worse.”

After working as a digital media specialist for major brands and founding her own consulting firms, Pryor is hoping to carve out a niche as a marketing specialist and venture capitalist advisor in this industry she’s passionate about. In particular she says she wants to help underrepresented business owners in the cannabis space (think black and Latin/Hispanic female founders) connect to funding.
