Akrete Cannabis Industry

Cannabis, articulated. Business growth, amplified.

The burgeoning cannabis industry is creating new business opportunities at a breathtaking pace; we can help you stay on top of this fast-building sector with the power of communications.

With the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity essential to succeeding in cannabis, we plan and execute successful content-rich public relations, corporate communications, content development and marketing campaigns for both plant-touching and ancillary businesses.

Named the top PR firm for cannabis entrepreneurs, our seasoned pros have been helping cannabis firms and their ancillary services providers achieve growth potential since 2018, and our weekly AkreteCanna newsletter has since become an essential resource to many in the industry.
