Urban Aroma is comprised of a small group of friends that have been consuming cannabis in D.C. for over 15 years. Our love and support for cannabis and movements such as Black Lives Matter, climate justice, immigrant rights, and cannabis activism have kept us connected. This is why you’ll find more than just a cannabis directory at Urban Aroma. Although we love consuming cannabis, what we care about most is providing quality information and journalism regarding all aspects of the cannabis lifestyle, market, legalization, and social justice.
Some of us actually helped spark the push to decriminalize cannabis in D.C., collecting the signatures needed to put legalization on the ballot with DCMJ, and we were instrumental in the campaign to legalize weed, continuing to push D.C. council and the US Congress to maintain and expand our rights as cannabis consumers. In addition to our social justice ties to the cannabis industry, we also regularly travel nationally and internationally to cannabis hotspots, making sure we are aware of the latest cannabis trends, and meeting with traditional growers who use ancient knowledge and technologies to grow their crops. It is through these visits and relationships that we can guarantee that we have the best available information to compare and judge gifters and cannabis flower available in D.C..
We have grown to avoid individuals, businesses, and other culture-vultures that try to profit from our town and industry without having any meaningful ties to the DMV (District, Maryland, Virginia) area. We share our love of the District and the plant with all our friends, and hope you’ll dig the high-quality info, too.
