Networking: It is Cannabiz Connection’s biggest advantage!

 

How has the cannabis industry changed since you started this conference? Where would you like to see it go?

This industry is changing by the day! I have been involved here in Michigan for four years now, and it really is a different world now. We are finally seeing things progress in Michigan the way we always imagined!

 

What are the some of the challenges you have faced in this industry, as a cannabis-related business?

Finding the RIGHT people to work with. I had to seek a lot of sources outside of Michigan who have been involved in the regulated process in different states.

MICBD Conference May 20, 2018 in Bay City, MI

Tickets are available here.

Why and when did your conference start-up?

MICBD Group has held cannabis business conferences since 2015. Events have been featured in all over Michigan in cities like Detroit, Traverse City, Flint, Lansing and Ann Arbor.

What does your conference, offer patients/business people that they can’t find anywhere else?

MICBD Group events are different from other conferences in many ways, but the following three differences stand out:

  1. The diversity of opinions. Hearing from a broad perspective of voices is crucial in business development; each opinion is derived from personal experience and perspective, both of which can be limiting. More information is better. If you are hearing from just one legal firm or have a single source of advice, you are far less likely to be successful. Conferences which offer a single-firm, limited perspective are of limited value—and, oddly enough, seem the most expensive.
  2. Distraction-free environment for learning. There are no sales booths, no vendor tables or loudspeaker announcements at MICBD Conferences. Selling booth space and renting tables to vendors is profitable for the event company, but business conferences are not expos or a circus. If you seek a comfortable environment to learn about business, come to an MICBD Conference; if you want to buy a vaporizer or some soil, go to a store.
  3. The most business professional locations and fabulous food. The MICBD Group hosts conferences in hotels and college campuses with stunning appeal. In Traverse City, the Hagerty Center conference rooms gave attendees a stunning view of the Lake Michigan shoreline—and the atrium featured a complete sailboat! In Detroit, the Atheneum Hotel is a Greek-themed venue with two-story murals and rough-hewn marble benches. The Kensington Hotel in Ann Arbor is a historic hotel; the Radisson Hotel Lansing and the Gateway Centre in Flint are the most upscale venues in their markets. Each MICBD event except Ann Arbor has featured a full meal—and the food is always a big hit with our guests.

How has the cannabis industry changed since you started this conference? Where would you like to see it go?

Rick Thompson and Jamie Lowell have been involved in Michigan’s cannabis business space since 2009, individually. The Michigan industry has grown from a thing brave people whispered about into an industry even the tepid are clamoring to get involved in. The hardest part about watching the industry grow has been seeing it become more focused on commercial industry instead of individual compassion. Through the MICBD Conference series we try and shape the direction of the new business environment but to a very large degree the future is already designed; helping people adapt to that new canna-business space is what the MICBD Group does.

What are the some of the challenges you have faced in this industry, as a cannabis-related business?

Acceptance of our industry was slow at first but is now rapidly becoming the normal in daily life here in Michigan. The challenge we face is thinking about all the people who were disadvantaged by the slow-to-believe system during the MMA’s early years, and who paid a criminal price for their advanced thinking and early advocacy. These memories are what drive us to help people avoid those consequences; knowledge is power.

What is the one main thing you want patients and the public to know about your conference?

This comes at a crucial time for Michigan canna-business hopefuls. But maybe more important than that is the possibility for a final cannabis family reunion. The Michigan cannabis business community will be totally different in one year; faces will have dropped out, new players will be added, some cherished events will be banned, and some familiar places will be closed. Nobody knows who will remain, or in what role they will be; this is our last chance to gather as champions and celebrate the industry we made and the legacy we laid down. Lansing business owners, Ann Arbor and Detroit business owners, out-of-state and Flint and west side people should all share a drink and a meal for a final time before the “Great Upheaval of 2018” begins.

What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the cannabis community?

Create a world where my children can seek the best treatment for their illnesses without being judged or made into criminals. It is the same wish all parents have. And if we get to kick some ass along the way, well, that’s just bonus.

How and when did your dispensary start up?

Eight years after turning down their son Charles in his search for a loan to open a medicinal marijuana dispensary in his college town of Bozeman, Montana, Callie and Ernie reconsidered and banded together with their daughter Caitlin to start a recreational marijuana dispensary of their own.

 

What does your dispensary offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?

Customer experience is our top priority; we want everyone to leave feeling happy, well-informed and accommodated. From our customer service to our aesthetic, everything has been thought through with the customer in mind. Our dispensary was designed from the ground up, meaning every aspect of the space was thoughtfully and intentionally designed by us to create a welcoming and pleasant environment.

How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?

Callie came to the cannabis industry after many years in the floral industry, while Caitlin made the transition to the industry to escape her high-stress sports marketing career and three-hour commute. Being in the cannabis industry has changed our lives for the better, bringing the family together. “I’m still in the flower business (which I love), but this is a very different opportunity,” said Callie of transitioning from one “feel good” industry to another. Ultimately, we’d like to see cannabis legalized in all 50 states.

 

What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a dispensary? . . .  Biggest joys? Some days it’s difficult being the new guys in town, just getting started and learning something new every day, but being with family makes it easier. It’s been exciting to go through each stage of the process together!

 

What is the one thing you want patients/customers to know about your dispensary?

We have something for everyone, with one of the biggest selections in the industry. Using cannabis is not always about getting high, which is why we carry approximately 250 products including a large selection of CBD items to help with pain, sleep, anxiety and other medical issues.

 

If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?

Go for it! It’s hard work but a lot of fun, and you’ll meet a ton of great people along the way. It’s always rewarding when a customer comes back and lets us know that what we recommended helped improve their life.

 

What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?

Short-term, we hope to continue to make our customers happy and provide a great experience for them. Long-term, we want to continue to build upon the success of the Starbuds brand and give back to the community at large by providing educational seminars. As the brand continues to grow, we are excited to open Starbud’s 12th location this spring in Longmont located at 75th and Ute Highway #66.
