How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea & Brand YOU in the Cannabis Industry

These days it’s harder than ever to break through, especially in an industry whose bandwagon is quickly filling up like the SF cable car. There is so much noise, everyone is screaming and trying to get their message across, staking their claim in the green rush. It’s great in the sense that without gatekeepers more people are able to express their ideas, but the downside is that it’s harder than ever to actually be heard. I, personally, like when the best ideas win.

So, how do you find your breakthrough idea? Many people know generally where they want to go, but it takes more than that. There are five major ways to get to your “idea destination”. You don’t even have to do all five. Pick one and execute it well. That’s enough to make your name in the cannabis industry. 

Start with a niche strategy then expand strategically outward

You can’t just say I’m going to be the expert in something. In that category, you will compete with the entire world. You have to narrow it down. The secret to that however, is that you don’t want to be pigeonholed doing that. You need to move into new territory from there. It’s all about circling the area around a niche. A good niche is one that you can become the master of, because the big players in the industry only talk about it periodically. Where do you get the seed for finding a niche? Well, solving your own problem is one way. If you are in a situation, others are too. Also, draw from your personal experiences. Notice needs and find a solution.

SMITHS FALLS, ON, July 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Tweed Marijuana Inc. ("TMI" or "the Company"), parent company of Tweed Inc. ("Tweed") and Tweed Farms Inc. ("Tweed Farms") is pleased to announce that pursuant to notification received today from Health Canada, licensed producers such as Tweed and Tweed Farms will be eligible to produce and sell cannabis oils pending the necessary inspections and approvals from Health Canada.

Until today the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) only allowed for the sale of dried cannabis flower. With the addition of cannabis oils to the regulatory framework, Tweed will be able to significantly increase its product offering to provide a more diverse variety for practitioners and patients.

"This is a natural sign of progression in the industry and a big step forward for patients seeking access to a variety of diverse products," said Mark Zekulin, President of Tweed. "Tweed has the largest growing facilities in the country, and is ready to move expeditiously to offer its customers a diverse line of oil extracts."
