Cannabis Promotional Products are Born
Beginning in the early 2000’s, as medical marijuana became widely accepted, dispensaries needed unique ways to market themselves. However, many of these businesses were operating in a grey area of law and traditional promotional companies refused to deal with them. There were no cannabis promos, so, to bring foot traffic, dispensaries simply offered first time patients what they already had, free weed. Massive amounts of smokable product was handed to the masses in the form of pre-rolls and nugs for simply walking into a dispensary for the first time. Although a great deal for patients, dispensaries were on the losing end of the joint. Patients often toured the next dispensary over to get the next “promotion.” By the time the patient got home their “promotion” was up in smoke and so was their loyalty to the dispensary they visited.
There was a better way to build a brand. It called for a more traditional approach to build true customer loyalty. They needed something that couldn’t be smoked. Something that would remain long after the smoking was up. They needed traditional solutions to a nontraditional market. They needed cannabis promotions unique to their market.
That’s when the first time patient gift was born.
Giveaways That Give Back
Our very first cannabis promotional item was a humble 3-piece acrylic grinder. It was durable, inexpensive and available in a wide variety of colors. It was exactly what the market needed. Dispensaries now had a low cost, branded product that they could give away in place of, or along with, the free weed they currently offered.
Smoking is often times a social event. That puts the branded grinder in the middle of the conversation, or at the very least, on the table in the middle of the circle. Being used whenever the need to burn was imminent.

Helping You Build a Strong Brand
A strong brand will provide value to your organization well beyond your physical assets. Think about the brands that you purchase from (Coca-Cola, Wrangler, Apple, Ford, Chick-Fil-A, Quik Trip). Are these companies really worth their equipment, their products, their warehouses, or factories? No, these companies are worth much more than their physical assets. Their brand has created a value that far exceeds their physical value.
A brand that is consistent and clear puts the customer at ease, because they know exactly what to expect each and every time they experience the brand.
It is important to remember that your brand represents you. You are the brand, your staff is the brand, and your marketing materials are the brand. What do they say about you, and what do they say about what you’re going to deliver (promise) to the customer?
A good brand connects with people at an emotional level. They feel good when they buy the brand. Purchasing is an emotional experience, and having a strong brand helps people feel good at an emotional level when they engage with the company. Your cannabis promotions should invoke that emotion.
