Building Your Cannabis Brand

Building Your Cannabis Brand  Matthew Owen Can you name me one Humboldt, Trinity or Mendocino County grower that is asked for by name when purchasing cannabis? Neither can I, and that’s the problem.   If you don’t have a name brand with market awareness then you are simply producing an agricultural commodity, and its game over after November 2016 when the corporations enter the industry.   Recently I picked up Luke, my SoHum friend, and…
