Kush Kush

What is CBD? How do you roll a joint? The platform is dedicated to women who consume cannabis and are curious to learn more.

Jo Hope is the brains behind Kush Kush, Africa’s first woman-focused cannabis platform.

Hope says she created the online platform so that she could provide a customer service experience tailored for women who consume the product.

I was going into retail spaces that were focused on cannabis accessories and I honestly couldn't find a space that I really felt comfortable in.

Jo Hope, Founder of Kush Kush

I wanted to create a lifestyle platform that also deals with the stigma around consuming cannabis.

Jo Hope, Founder of Kush Kush

Hope says her platform is a judgement-free community of women who want to learn more about the world of cannabis.
