Cannabis biz events

Cannabis biz events named among top growing trade shows

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Cannabis Conferences and Tradeshows

Cannabis biz events have been named among the 50 fastest-growing trade shows in the United States, reflecting the cannabis industry’s rapid expansion and future potential.

The Fall Marijuana Business Conference & Expo ranked second nationally for growth in attendance and net square feet of paid exhibit space from 2015 to 2016, according to Trade Show Executive’s newly released “Fastest 50” list.

The Cannabis biz events  hosted by Marijuana Business Daily each November in Las Vegas – also took the No. 4 spot for growth in number of exhibiting companies. Last year, it ranked first in all three categories for growth from 2014 to 2015, becoming the first marijuana-related trade show to land in the top 50, let alone come in first.

Trade shows often are a leading indicator of growth for any industry, so the presence of three marijuana events on this year’s list bodes well for the future of cannabis commerce.

Two other Cannabis biz events made an appearance for the first time in this year’s list:

  • The Spring Marijuana Business Conference & Expo, held annually in May and also hosted by MJBizDaily
  • The Cannabis Business Summit & Expo, held each year in Oakland, California, and hosted by the National Cannabis Industry Association

    Both events ranked in the top 25 for growth from 2015 to 2016 in attendance, net square feet of paid exhibit space and number of exhibiting companies.

    Trade Show Executive – a publication for high-level professionals in the events industry – announced the winners at an awards ceremony Thursday night in Chicago.

    Other winners include mainstream events such as the Firehouse Expo, a trade show for the fire industry that came in at No. 1 in each category.

Defining Your Cannabis Brand

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Cannabis Brand

Cannabis Brand is your product recognition and image. It should send a clear message about your product or service.

Recently I was vending at a popup sesh in Sacramento. One of the things I love about doing these is checking out the other vendors and all the innovative cannabis products coming out. During the evening someone gave me a bottle of something – a tincture or syrup. It sounded great while the guy told me about it, but by the next day I’d pretty much forgotten what he said.

Cannabis Brand that doesn’t work.

So I pulled out the bottle. It was colorful and attractive, and on the back it told me how many calories, fat and grams of sugar were in it — but the rest of the writing was faded and in such a strange font it was hard to read. I finally figured out it was called Purple Panther Elixir. On the front, there was also some obscure print that said “Mike B” and “The Grim Reaper,”  neither of which seemed to be relevant to the product. Nowhere on the bottle could I find out what was in it or how much to take. It found a home on my kitchen shelf, and there it still sits.

One of the most common things I see among new businesses is confusion about their focus and cannabis brand. Many entrepreneurs put a great deal of time into designing beautiful, bright labels, but neglect the lettering or else name it something so obscure that only a select niche of people will get the reference.

Now that cannabis is becoming mainstream, more and more people are curious about the benefits of this plant, but unlike the people who work in the industry, many are novices. Some things need to be spelled out:

  • What is it?
  • What is it for?
  • How much should I take?

Beautiful labels are nice, but your product isn’t a work of art that someone needs to ponder like a metaphor. Consumers want to know what they are getting and they want to know it pretty quickly.

Many brands are taking a more modern, streamlined approach to their packaging with a simple design and easily recognizable logo. It might be worthwhile to hire a graphic designer for this part. Sometimes we’re so close to our product that it’s hard to conceptualize a visual symbol, whereas an outsider can sometimes see more clearly what’s needed.

However you decide to approach your packaging, the number one rule should be pretty standard: it needs to be clear and concise so your customers know what they’re getting — and it needs to be compelling enough that they want it. Take some time to truly define your brand: identify your ideal customer, and don’t try to do too much. Keeping things simple is often the most effective way.

The Rise of Craft Cannabis: Signs of a Maturing Industry

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marijuana Businesses, Marijuana Marketing Classes

What Is Craft Cannabis?

The art of cannabis has come a long way from the days of the dime bag, when you had no idea where your cannabis came from, what kind of pesticides or growing methods produced it, or even what strain it was. These days, in the legal cannabis marketplace, you have your choice of the best of the best of “craft cannabis.”

In states like Washington, Oregon, and Colorado, the craft consumer experience is taking off. Microbreweries are exploding and creating hand-crafted microbrew beers for every season and occasion. Coffee has become an artisanal experience, with careful attention paid to the slow roasting of coffee beans for the best flavor. On the culinary side of things, there has been a rise in organically produced, farm-to-table meals, and consumers are more conscious than ever about the products they choose to partake in.

 These craft experiences can be made even more exceptional with the introduction of high-quality, carefully-cured craft cannabis. Craft cannabis is exactly what it sounds like: cannabis that has been lovingly crafted with the greatest of care. When paired with other craft delights, the resulting confections can elevate an already top-shelf experience. Coffee and cannabis pairings join flavor and aroma, along with heady effects, for a new and unique caffeinated experience. Wine tasting has long been an activity for the seasoned wine connoisseur, so why not pair a bold cabernet with a fruity indica like Blackberry Kush? And as long as microbrews are on the rise, a sweet spicy strain like Red Dragon pairs perfectly with a hoppy India Pale Ale.
Cannabis consumers now have the option to pick and choose not only which strains fit their preferences, but the growers they want to support and which branding appeals to them the most. Furthermore, they can research every detail before making a purchasing decision.

Factors That Contribute to the Craft Cannabis Experience

There are other factors to consider as well. Growing techniques, as well as the use of organic methods as opposed to harsh chemicals, may appeal to the health-conscious cannabis consumer more than a large-scale producer relying on mechanically-operated systems and pesticides.

Craft marijuana grown without the use of pesticides requires extra care and attention, making sure that each plant does not get infected with spider mites or grow mold, which can devastate a crop. Maintaining steady temperature control, as well as other factors related to humidity and air filtration, can also significantly increase the yield and quality of a crop.

Traditionally, one of the areas commonly associated with the birth of craft cannabis is the Emerald Triangle, a forested region in California immersed in the cultivation of cannabis before legalization was but a twinkle in a legislator’s eye. True Humboldt, based in Humboldt County, produces sustainable sun-grown cannabis in the heart of cannabis country with quality, tradition, and community in mind.

3 Tips to Keep in Mind When Marketing Your Cannabis Business

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marijuana Marketing Classes, Marketing

Effective marketing and advertising are imperative to the success and growth of any business, especially new businesses and especially Cannabis Business. But with the current status of cannabis still in flux, many marijuana startups are finding it difficult to navigate the tangle of advertising restrictions that state legislators have placed on new business owners. It’s even harder to build national awareness across the varying limitations of state and federal laws. What can you do for your marijuana business to reach and build the audience of cannabis consumers your brand is hoping to attract?

Although our industry is severely limited in the type of marketing and advertising it can utilize, there are still various tactics cannabis businesses can implement to legally increase awareness of their brand. We’ll dive into them as part of our new Cannabis Business Marketing series, but first, let’s start by keeping in mind these three basic tips when crafting your marketing strategy:

1. Don’t Market Your Cannabis Business to or Near Minor

Be smart about the branding you use and the locations you choose to advertise at, keeping age restrictions in mind. Our industry is growing quickly, but its still in its early stages, which means a lot of people are raising questions and concerns about cannabis legalization’s impact on minors. Marijuana businesses should do their part in assuaging those fears and make appropriate marketing a top priority. Cartoon mascots à la Joe Camel and other messaging that appeals to minors are not only going to hurt your business’s image, it’s also harming the overall perception of the cannabis industry.

2. Don’t Infringe on Any Existing Brands’ Copyrights, Regardless of the Industry

Established mainstream companies probably aren’t going to be keen on having their brands and trademarks mimicked by a cannabis business. Look back no further to last spring, when Hershey’s sued a dispensary for trademark infringement after the dispensary began carrying edibles called “Reefer’s Cups” and “Mr. Dankbar.” These big brands have the money to go after a small, newly established cannabis company, and they will if they want to disassociate themselves from marijuana.

What Is Influencer Marketing and How Can It Help Cannabis Businesses?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marijuana Marketing Classes

Leafly is the first ever cannabis company to sponsor SXSW, and as we gear up for this year’s festival, we decided to take a look at one of the most crucial pieces of any successful brand: influencer marketing. With cannabis restricted by the federal government, many standard marketing platforms are off-limits. Because traditional marketing efforts off the table, cannabis brands have to be incredibly creative to ensure their campaigns are successful.

We spoke with Dominick Damico, the founder of Adspire, the fastest growing influencer marketing agency dedicated to cannabis, to see how cannabis businesses can make the most of their brand by using outside influencers to boost their audience and maximize their marketing impact.

Leafly: What is influencer marketing?

Dominick Damico: Influencer marketing is the usage of people and platforms to drive a brand’s message to a target market. The influencer can be a person, a website, or a social media page. Essentially, any person or platform that has influence over an audience can be considered an influencer.

What are some examples of different types of influencers?

  • Niched: These influencers are typically devoted to a specific market or subject (ex. Cannabis / beauty / sports / etc.)
  • Celebrity: These influencers are traditional celebrity types (artists, athletes, entertainers)
  • Social: These influencers found their fame through social media platforms
  • Micro: These influencers have a small amount of influence, but they can be useful when brands are looking to activate many niches at once
  • Localized: These influencers and their content are typically localized (ex. “Seattle Stoners”)

Influencers can fall under more than one of the categories above. For example, there are localized-micro influencers, and there are social-niched influencers.

What are some of the challenges of achieving impact through influencer marketing?

One challenge brands face is misunderstanding how to properly evaluate and vet an influencer.

In many cases, brands will go after the largest influencers they can find and this may not always be the best decision. While fan count should be taken into consideration during evaluation, brands should use engagement rate as the leading statistic for vetting an influencer.

For example, if a page with 100,000 followers receives around 5,000 engagements per post, their average engagement rate would be 5 percent. A page with 200,000 followers that receives 7,500 engagements per post would have an engagement rate of 3.75 percent. Even though the 200k page is double the size, it’s only gets 1.5 times the amount of engagement. This means if the price of the 200k page exceeds 1.5x the price of the 100k page, then the smaller page would be the better deal.

Distressed Asset Deals: What Happens When a Cannabis Startup Fails

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marijuana and the Ecomony, Marijuana Businesses

For a Cannabis Startup it’s simple economics – supply and demand; as the wholesale price of cannabis falls some operators will be edged out of the space. Some will become so-called distressed assets with only three choices: declare bankruptcy (which is tricky), cut their losses, or sell.

In Colorado, wholesale cannabis prices are down 25 percent from 2016, and 73 percent from 2015, which has led to an increase in these types of assets – struggling cannabis startup businesses on the verge of collapse or already non-operational. However, it’s near impossible to tell how many of these assets exist due to the private nature of the industry.

Jason Thomas, CEO of Denver-based Avalon Realty Advisors, said he has handled more than 20 distressed asset real estate deals, and about 15 distressed asset business and license transactions in Colorado since January 2014; ranging from $180,000 short lease deals, to $2 million property sales, to $3 million business sales. Thomas explained that his firm has seen a “marginal” albeit “identifiable” increase in these assets in Colorado over the “last couple of months” from both new and long-standing operators. “Primarily the reason for these distressed sales is typically they run out of cash, or run out of patience, or both.”

“A lot of people tend to underestimate the time and cost involved for ramp up time or opening a new facility or acquiring an existing business,” he said in a phone interview with Ganjapreneur. “It’s unlike most any other industry because you’re creating a manufacture and distribution industry. People don’t understand that until they delve in.”

The distressed asset deals are “complicated,” Thomas said, for a variety of reasons; among them, the federal illegality of cannabis and the lack of defined sales prices – “but deals get done.” He called the deals “the toughest” he has ever worked on, explaining that they can take up to a year to close from the day the contract is signed. Most often, Thomas said, new market entrants have trouble qualifying for licensing or meeting the capital requirements under Colorado’s law.

13 Fantastic Women-Owned Dispensaries to Support

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Women Owned Cannabis Businesses, Women Who Inspire

There’s a lot of discussion about diversity in the cannabis industry, but in terms of a gender gap, cannabis is actually more welcoming for female leaders and women-owned dispensaries than many other career paths. That said, there’s still a definite gap. The best way to help close it? Support the many fantastic women-owned dispensaries already out there. After considering countless submissions, the following are thirteen of our favorites across North America.

13 Women-owned dispensaries

3D Cannabis Centers (Denver, CO / Salida, CO)

Founded by Toni Savage Fox, 3D Cannabis Centers cemented its spot in cannabis history as the site of the first legal recreational cannabis sale, at the Denver location on January 1, 2014. Since then, Savage Fox has opened an additional location in Salida and used her fame and influence to make waves in the industry through organizations including NORML, NCIA, Women Grow, Marijuana Policy Project, and many more. The 3D team ensures their cannabis is of utmost quality by keeping a full-time scientist and full-time engineer on staff, and backing their products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. When you stop by the Denver store in particular, be sure to peek into the state-of-the-art on-site grow room to see plants and clones being coaxed toward full maturity.

Mindful

MiNDFUL, headed up by CEO Meg Sanders, has been recognized by Women Grow as the largest woman-led cannabis company in America. The dispensary chain, which is dedicated to growing exceptional craft-quality cannabis, has five locations spanning the medical and recreational industries in two very different states, Illinois and Colorado. In Colorado, visit stores in Denver (medical and recreational), Colorado Springs (medical), Berthoud (medical), or Aurora (recreational); in Illinois, check out the Addison location on the fringe of Chicago.

Simply Pure

As the first black female dispensary owner in Colorado, Wanda James is an industry pioneer as well as an inspiration. In fact, James didn’t even realize she was a first until someone told her, and rightly asserts that there should be far more like her in the industry. Prior to owning a dispensary, she served on Barack Obama’s finance committee in 2008, and currently works as CEO of Simply Pure, which she co-owns with her husband Scott Durrah. A trailblazer at the epicenter of America’s legal adult-use cannabis culture, James, along with her team, places an emphasis on procuring the highest-quality cannabis available on the market.

6 Multi-State Medical Cannabis Companies to Watch

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Marijuana Businesses, Marijuana Marketing Classes

Cannabis Companies to Watch

Building success cannabis companies in the United States is no easy task given the many obstacles created by federal illegality of the plant. Access to banking, an inability to scale operations by shipping across state lines and the tax burden of 280E are just a few of these challenges.  Adding to these impediments, most states limit the number of licenses offered, making it easy to see why there is no dominant coast-to-coast cannabis retailer yet. Despite these challenges, we are beginning to see some very large, medically-focused operators who have been able to build their business state by state.

While there is a lot of uncertainty regarding how the Trump Administration will deal with enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), it seems highly unlikely that the proliferation of medical cannabis state by state will be impeded. Here are some of the companies that have impressed us at New Cannabis Ventures with their ability to raise capital and to operate in multiple states, winning licenses to operate vertically integrated businesses that cultivate, process and sell medical cannabis products.
