This is to inform my readers that I am going to be shifting the focus of HI-Blog to issues related to Retail Performance in Washington’s State-legal Cannabis market.
While this will shift the emphasis in HI-Blog away from the “labs” and from the failed integration of Medical Cannabis into the state’s regulated system, I expect to continue writing on those topics in other industry publications.
In no particular order, the topics I expect to cover in HI-Blog’s Retail Performance series will include assessments of:
As I write these articles, I will be reaching out to interested stores that look like they might benefit from a better understanding of how some of these things relate TO THEIR STORE (or stores).
Any stores out there that would like to be included in my outreach efforts should let me know. Just write me a note requesting inclusion on my retailer contact list by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let me know what store(s) you are affiliated with and the e-mail (or other method) that is best for contacting you.
I’d like to thank all of those who have shared their insights regarding the real-world aspects of this market that I otherwise see mainly through the data. Many farmers have been very forthcoming in ways that have helped me better understand the supply side of the market and how to use the data on their behalf more effectively. A number of retailers have also gone out of their way to help me better understand THEIR worlds and how the realities of this market make their businesses much more challenging than many realize.
I believe that retailers, processors and farmers alike will find benefit in much of the information that I will be posting in this series.
This should be fun.
