Why did you join CBA?
Verts joined CBA to stay on the front lines of the industry, and also to play an active role in keeping cannabis legal, and helping it to become more accessible for consumers in Colorado and in states where legalization is moving forward.
Craft was one of the first vendors in our store. Kevin was super helpful on all of our compliance questions, and after speaking with him it became pretty obvious that joining CBA would be worthwhile for our team.
What are the tangible benefits of the membership?
Being able to have a voice, and have it be heard and validated is really important.
Examples on how the membership has saved you money, prevented you from making a mistake, provided you with a network etc.
Having a community of business leaders we can discuss our concerns with has been extremely beneficial for our business. Whether we have questions about existing laws or the new bills that are going into legislation, we know we can rely on this group to provide accurate information.
There’s such a diverse crowd of members in the CBA, all from different facets of the industry. Having this collective group of cannabis industry leaders to discuss tough topics with is invaluable. Whenever we have a question about a law or regulation, all we have to do is shoot an email and we know we’ll have clarification, from an honest and credible source. And it happens a lot, especially with how fast the industry is changing and growing.
Why is it important to be involved in the industry?
Simply put cannabis helps people. And Colorado is quite literally leading the world in helping to fix the stigma associated with this plant. The industry has some come such a long way from black market basement grow operations, and to ensure that we never go back, anyone involved in the industry needs to do their part to keep it safe and keep it legal. We wanted to do this right. Rules were put in place for a reason, and it’s our duty as leaders on the world stage to see that proper rules and regulation continue to be put into action as our industry matures and grows.
