Cannabis, articulatedBusiness growth, amplified.

We earned our broad cannabis marketing, public relations, social media and investor communications experience in Massachusetts, and can apply that knowledge throughout North America.

We have represented a Massachusetts-based vertically integrated cannabis company since early 2018.  In the spirit of “all hands on deck” that this industry requires, we have provided a broad spectrum of services including:

  • Public relations including political PR
  • Investor communications
  • Direct marketing including email and text channels
  • Social media strategy, content, community management and new channel launches
  • Content development and award submissions
  • Event planning and dispensary launches
  • Advertising and sponsorship management, creative development and execution
  • Collateral development in compliance with regulations
  • Integrated marketing and communications
  • Email newsletters for medical and adult use

Throughout the course of our work in cannabis, we have emphasized a targeted media strategy that engages local, regional, national and cannabis industry publications with goals to positively impact political environments, communications channels, sales numbers and overall brand image. We also work with general business media like the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, The Boston Globe and other similar outlets to advocate for the normalizing of legal cannabis as a positive contributor to society.

We are based in Illinois and offer a national team that can apply our specialized understanding of the cannabis industry anywhere in North America.  Our team members have made the pivot from other B2B and B2C arenas, and hit the ground running in cannabis.  We embrace a creative and collaborative approach to helping both cannabis companies and their service providers to take advantage of this unique moment in time, to be a part of a young and burgeoning industry.
