Canna Matriarchs, Inc. began in June 2019 as Canna Moms KC, a Facebook group created by Tanya Roth, a boy mom with two toddlers and a husband battling stage III Colorectal cancer. After two years of supporting her husband's health using cannabis as medicine in secrecy, she one day realized there was a desperate need for a support system for cannabis-friendly mothers. She created Canna Moms as a way to break down the stigma against mothers who support the medicinal plant and give them a place to feel free of judgment and persecution as the newly legalized therapeutic market developed in Missouri.
What began as a simple social media group in KC quickly expanded across the state of Missouri and transformed into Canna Matriarchs, Inc., a Missouri non-profit organization supporting mothers across the midwest. With 20 chapters formed, 1000+ members across the state of Missouri, and 2,100+ social media followers, Tanya incorporated Canna Matriarchs MO with the aspiration of creating an organization in each state. With MO being the birth of a compassionate and robust community support and advocacy organization.
Canna Matriarchs, Inc. offers many levels of community support, advocacy, member support services and legal aid, in addition to providing an environment where we cultivate community. In less than one year, we accomplished many programs and missions. Some initiatives include; operating a statewide clothing donation drive for the homeless, creating and facilitating toy drives to aid multiple families in need, advocating and assisting with legal aid for medical patients, and lobbying for and against legislation at the State Capitol. Most importantly we empower mothers to speak up and guide the conversations about medical cannabis and are turning the tides on social views against mothers who support cannabis legalization.
