      A few weeks ago, we returned home to Annapolis after an exciting week of inspirational talks and events at the Women Grow Leadership Summit in Denver. Jenn led the "Parenting in the Cannabis Industry" panel and the discussion was a huge success. Panelists shared their own experiences and challenges with a room of parents. Some moms (from states where adult-use is legal) felt it best to model responsible consumption, while others felt more comfortable hiding it from their children. There was general consensus around talking honestly to kids, while keeping it age-appropriate.   Based on the feedback from the panel discussion and the apparent need for a supportive parenting group, we created the Parent Cannabis Association (PCA). The PCA is a judgement-free space for parents who work in the cannabis industry, parents who consume cannabis and parents who medicate their children with cannabis. We share information, personal stories and support one another.   To protect the privacy of our members, the PCA is a closed Facebook group. To join the conversation, you can  request to join the PCA here . All parents are welcome! You can also read more information and find us at upcoming events at  ParentCannabis.com

Brand Joint Supports The Women's March

The Women’s March has millions of women feeling more empowered than ever, including the women at our Annapolis, Maryland cannabis branding studio and sister company, Peppermill Projects. We are always encouraged to “design for good.” We designed a series of posters after feeling empowered to participate. You can head over to Peppermill Projects to download the posters, share on social media, hang up in your house, keep close to your desk — wherever you need that motivation to keep your head up and keep fighting for what’s right. 

Cannabis Branding: Differentiating Your Dispensary

Cannabis Branding: Differentiating Your Dispensary

A good dispensary does not just providing a product, but an entire patient experience. To help you understand and visualize your intended experience and narrow in on the smallest of details, it’s best to view every touch point through the eyes of your patient or consumer. What do they feel, hear and see the moment they walk through the doors? Does your website provide a similar experience? How does your staff dress? Does your interior design match your brand? How are your products displayed? Does your dispensary provide the largest selection products, cheapest prices, or do you specialize in high-end strains?
