Why Rap Carts?

Why Is Representation Important In The Cannabis Industry?

Despite the influx of consumer interest, legalization, and increase of economic cash flow, there still seems to be a divide within the cannabis industry — both on an entrepreneurial and consumer level. Since at least the 1970’s when Reagan waged the failed “war on drugs,” minorities have been targeted for the very industry that is helping the economy boom now. 

This narrative — urban communities being targeted, yet still being drained as top consumers — has been going on for way too long. We here at Rap Carts are taking this opportunity to rewrite the narrative in our favor.

Taking The Failed War On Drugs Reform Into Our Own Hands

Little known fact is that although the United States only makes up 5% of the world, we also make up 25% of the world’s incarcerated people. This astonishing statistic is due to the fact that many have been either wrongfully arrested or convicted due to drug charges. Even when faced with convictions, they are usually grossly exaggerated compared to the impact of the “crime.”

The truth is that cannabis has always been around and will continue to be around — now, we (the black and brown community) finally have a chance to right some of the wrongs centered around its use whether it’s for medical or recreational purposes. 

While our community has been targeted for several decades, one consistent fact remains the same — minorities are the top consumers of the industry. Isn’t it only right that our people have the option to buy from their own and stimulate the economics within our own ethnic ecosystem? 

Not to mention, the way that we relate to our customers is much more in touch than other companies, taking into consideration what it really feels like to be apart of an entire culture, not just seen as another number. 

Changing The Narrative Around The Cannabis Industry

Within urban communities, cannabis-related products are hardly viewed as anything more than recreational. That’s a very limiting belief, especially considering that various products have so much more to offer for holistic medicinal purposes. With proper representation in this industry, we can help touch more people’s lives within our own community and provide healthier alternatives to their health and wellness repertoire.  

Here are just some of the health benefits of Delta-8 THC:

  • Works as an antiemetic, or can be used to keep nausea and vomiting to a minimum for people experiencing digestive disorders and/or cancer treatments. 
  • Works as an anxiolytic to reduce fear and anxiety disorders, reducing stress (the number one killer!). 
  • Acts as an anti-tumor impactor to significantly slow or regress tumor growth. 
  • Anti inflammatory throughout the body for entire body relief. 
  • Appetite stimulator to increase the overall quality of life. 
  • Improves memory by acting as a neurotransmitter to improve cognition and neuroplasticity. 

With so many potential benefits of just this one type of cannabinoid, it’s imperative that we create more accessibility to our own community. It’s no surprise that Delta-8 THC is quickly becoming a household name throughout the cannabis industry and it is our goal to not only pave our own lane and make this healing more accessible, but do so in a way that also represents the consumer that has been kept in the dark for so long.

We’re excited to invite any and everyone to try our revolutionary products. We’ve developed two flavors that are widely known throughout the culture: O.G. and Cookies (coming soon).
