An AAPI- led education movement for a more inclusive and accessible cannabis community


The AAPI Cannabis Collective believes in a more inclusive and destigmatized cannabis community among AAPI

While global acceptance of cannabis is growing globally, we still see a serious need to 

destigmatize, educate, and guide AAPI, especially older generations, and non-English speakers, about the wellness benefits of cannabis.

This initiative is just the start of a massive movement to mobilize and have our own community support a plant with boundless potential. 

HiVi & Savanh invites you to join the collective.


The Modern Cannabis literature guide has been translated from English into 11 different Asian languages. The education book is provided to AAPI communities for free so that everyone regardless of economic status has access to accurate information. All education has been verified by HiVi Medical Advisor, Dr. June Chin. Design by Savanh Head of Creative, Anouphong Khounphithack
