How STIIIZY’s UNIIITY In the Community Giveback event was recognized in this year’s CLIO Awards.


In 2021, STIIIZY has accomplished great things. From product launches such as the new, nanomolecular technology infused Edible line, to reaching four years as a company with a month-long celebration this past November.

We are proud to announce that on top of all of that, we were also able to win some notable awards, one being a coveted 2021 CLIO Awards: Shortlist Award!

Our team’s work through our UNIIITY in the Community giveback event has secured the brand an Honorable Mention in CLIO’s Public Relations Medium.

Our UNIIITY in the Community giveback event showcased how the power of cannabis can bring a community together, and was recognizing the homeless crisis in Skid Row, Los Angeles. Especially in the most recent years due to the ongoing Covid Pandemic. With the help of BLESSED by STIIIZY, our team was able to dedicate time and effort towards our unhoused neighbors the weekend following April 20, 2021. STIIIZY having been able to partner up with two incredible organizations whose dedication revolves around restoring dignity and providing services to the folks who call Skid Row their home.

Both Beauty 2 the Streetz and Share The Warmth International are two organizations that are led by inspirational Black women that do what they can to bring a little bit of sunshine to the gloomy side of DTLA known as Skid Row — home to one of the nation’s largest concentrations of unhoused (homeless) people. Beauty 2 the Streetz founder Shirley Raines having recently been listed as CNN’s 2021 Hero of the Year.

Through BLESSED by STIIIZY, this has been one of the most rewarding giveback events our team has been able to host this past year. In the most recent months, our team was able to release a new BLESSED product: BLESSED CDT. Having portions of the proceeds from this drop be donated to the Downtown Women’s Center in Skid Row to provide “Welcome Home Kits'' for women transitioning into permanent housing — a cause chosen directly by our consumers through the power of social media.

On top of winning a CLIO, it didn’t stop there for STIIIZY in 2021, as others took note and awarded the brand with additional recognition.
