It's been a busy summer at Humble, and we're excited to see thegreat opportunities ahead. Last month we launched the Humblex NDICA Mentorship Program, partnering with the NationalDiversity and Inclusion Cannabis Alliance (NDICA) and Black Cannabis Magazine to provideopportunities for black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities.
WindshipTrading,our U.S. accessory distributor, exhibited at two back-to-back industry tradeshows in Las Vegas last month, The HQ Event and the CHAMPS Trade Show. Weintroduced several new vendors and brands recently added to our growing productportfolio and had some big industry names make cameo appearances in the booth.
Humble x NDICA Mentorship Program
As mentioned, Humble and NDICA officially debuted its MentorshipProgram via the Humble+ Social Awareness Committee last month. We believe there needs to be more awareness and support within the cannabis sector to better advocate for social equity and representation; our goal is to find like-minded entrepreneurs and companies who believe this, too.
We are currently seeking mutually beneficial partnerships with non-profits and other organizations and companies to develop objectives, proposals, and ideas to help one another become better allies with the cannabis, smoke shop, and other related industries. Through Humble's MentorshipProgram, we hope to impact the cannabis industry and the world positively.

Humble has partnered with the non-profit organization NationalDiversity and Inclusion Cannabis Alliance (NDICA) to share expertise and guidance for the mentorship program. NDICA's diverse array of educators, practitioners, industry leaders, government agencies, and other resources work together to provide many services and opportunities, including record expungement, vocational training, education, internships, community outreach, and more.
Humble's Partnership with NDICA
Together, we have proudly created the Humble x NDICA MentorshipProgram to advocate for an ethical and equitable cannabis industry. With NDICA and our program, we will provide BIPOC entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their talents, products, and enthusiasm for the ever-evolving and ever-important cannabis industry.
Black Cannabis Magazine: A New Outlet for BIPOC Media
Black Cannabis Magazine (BCM) is a new digital and print media venture founded by talent manager and entrepreneur Haze Taughtme. The BCM debut issue launched on 4/20this year, with long-time cannabis advocate Whoopi Goldberg gracing the cover.This long-needed media outlet highlights BIPOC entrepreneurship and achievement in the cannabis industry.
Collaboration with Humble and NCDA
BCM's mission (as stated on their website) is to"destroy the negative connotation commonly associated with the legal cannabis industry by providing...The truth.” Humble and NDICA recently joined forces with the magazine to raise awareness about NDICA's organization and our goals with the Humble Mentorship Program. We hope to find entrepreneurs and companies familiar with the cannabis space and BIPOC communities to work together towards our shared goals.
The Mentor Program’s Debut at Industry Trade Shows
Last month, Windship Trading, Humble's leading accessory distributor for the United States, represented us at two major industry shows.The HQ Event was held mid-July at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. The following week, Windship exhibited at the annual CHAMPS Summer Trade Show. It was the first time Humble and Windship partnered with a non-profit to this extent.
NDICA's Founder, Bonita Bo Money, and VP of Community Outreach andRelations, FreewayRick Ross, joined us for both events as a spotlight vendor promoting the organization and the mentorship program. We are grateful to have a fantastic partnership with such a passionate group truly changing lives within the cannabis industry and adjacent sectors.
Humble Opportunities on the Horizon
We anticipate new and exciting opportunities as we grow and learn internally with the humble+ Social Awareness Committee and develop new partnerships with the Humble Mentorship Program. The possibilities are wide open, and our ability to contribute to and positively impact BIPOC and other marginalized communities will flourish if we continue to work together towards progress.
