3 Keys to Building a Strong Cannabis Company Culture

An essential yet frequently overlooked piece of the brand expansion puzzle is culture. But culture isn’t something you can create and then walk away from. It requires nurturing, buy-in from your team, and a commitment to its growth.

When people talk about company culture, they typically envision a team grouping up at the launch of a business, but what many don’t realize is that organizational culture can be changed and strengthened at any stage of the business. As with other vital functions of a company, culture can weaken or get knocked off course for various reasons, like an acquisition or moving office locations – and, most recently, a global crisis with countless implications.

What No One Tells You About Hemp Bioplastics

One of the most significant dangers to our wildlife, environment, and global climate is something nearly every person on Earth uses every single day: plastic (single-use plastic in particular).

It is devastating oceans and waterways, covering land and beaches, and filling landfills at a staggering rate.

This is not a problem we will be able to outrun.

Thankfully, there are cannabis companies across the globe dedicated to developing hemp-based solutions to our plastic problem.

Scientists are using hemp to create biodegradable plastics, called bioplastics, that are harmless to the environment and degrade in just a fraction of the time of standard single-use plastic.

Apple’s Decision To Allow Select Cannabis Brands On App Store Signals Incremental Acceptance Of Emerging Legal Market

The decision comes as tech giants continue to handle cannabis apps and accounts in often unclear ways.

As first reported by TechCrunch and WeedWeek, the ongoing conundrum between cannabis and tech took its latest turn last month, when Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) updated its policies to allow pot-centric apps onto its store.
