Marketing Cannabis in 2018 – Craft Cannabis Producers

Craft cannabis grows in Canada

Small-batch cannabis arrives to Canada’s mail-order and LP markets

An online auction house called CannadaMarket.com says it has been granted a business license from the City of Victoria to operate its “eBay style medical marijuana marketplace” featuring Canada’s “top craft producers.” The April 18 press release notes vendors including Temple of Calyx, Grow Terra Farms, and Head Stash.


Proposed pot regulations open door to craft growers, licensing non-violent offenders

Federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor has released the Liberal government’s proposed cannabis regulations, opening the door to craft marijuana producers, allowing low-risk offenders to participate in the industry and offering some leeway on packaging.

The Real Reason Craft Cannabis is Here to Stay

Nothing evokes passionate debate in the cannabis community like the threat of big business taking over. The arguments against big marijuana fill the internet.

I have personally met with hundreds of marijuana growers, and at GGS we have been supplying greenhouses, growing tables, and indoor cultivation facilities specifically designed to maximize cannabis production since the 1990s. From our years of experience I can tell you there are many reasons craft cannabis will continue to thrive.

O.penVAPE Responds To Customers Desire For Flavored Cannabis

While some in the cannabis industry obsess over strains and the nuances of those flavors, the largest cannabis brand O.penVAPE has rolled out a new line of flavored vapes. The O.penVAPE ISH line was launched on Tuesday with three flavors: Bavarian Cream, Blue Raspberry, and Watermelon.

The company said that it was responding to a lot of customer feedback from people that wanted a flavored cartridge. “It appeals to a totally different market than say – the craft reserve. Plus, the addition of flavoring sets it apart in this category,” said Chris Driessen, President, Organa Brands U.S. “The customer is someone who is perhaps not a strain aficionado. It’s someone looking for rich flavor without a strong marijuana taste.”
