When marijuana was legalized, a lot of people wanted to get into the business, then in this region, a couple of farmers handle most of the marijuana farming; The farms are huge with hundreds of flowering plants.
One farmer has 3500 acres with marijuana plants scattered from 1 end to the other.
I consulted with the guy when he was getting started, and he wanted to sell marijuana products directly to dispensaries & that requires special permits from the county. I helped the guy fill out all of the necessary permits. I didn’t talk to the marijuana farmer again until last year. He called my company to request help with SEO. The people I was with and I handle many weird aspects of the marijuana business including SEO & advertising. I met with the guy for a few hours & the people I was with and I discussed some variations that would help. The farmer was spending $1.26 on each gram of cannabis concentrate just for packaging. I knew I could help the guy find a cheaper wholesale distributor with better prices. Instead of bright & colorful packages, the people I was with and I selected a matte black finish box with a hole in the bottom, however you can see the product through the hole & the package is sleek & clean. The black matte box & packaging will only cost $.55 for each gram of cannabis concentrate. The people I was with and I also set the famer up with a few of our other buyers that are in the same industry. Together, I believe they might be able to form a co-op. That would save them cash on permits & state fees, while bolstering each of their individual brands.
