How and when did your store start up?
Green Collar Cannabis started in September 2016! We revamped the shop as Green Collar North in July of 2017.
What does your store offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?
[We have] undeniable customer service, medical marijuana consultants, fresh rotating products from the highest quality vendors. [We also have] a discount program is available, with discounts for our patients, military and many more!
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
I’ve noticed more quality control from producers, but I would like to see even more transparency on specific details on the products being sold in the stores and classes for budtenders to meet and [gain] knowledge. Stores would be nothing without the knowledge of the crew selling the products and vendors willing to spend time with the store explaining their products.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a store? . . . Biggest joys?
The stigma against cannabis [is the biggest challenge]—changing the public thought process, thinking cannabis use as a taboo thing to speak about. The best part is making someone return with a smile on their face, telling us how happy the last purchase made them, because we helped them find exactly what they’re looking for. Our customers are the best!
What is the one thing you want patients/customers to know about your store?
We want to hear from you! Reviews are awesome! We want to let everyone know we take our time with all the questions you have on all of our products in store. We want you to make us part of your routine!
If someone wanted to open a store and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
Knowledge of genetics and the benefits of cannabis! Customer service, having the ability to connect with the customer immediately, and keep them coming back!
What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?
To watch our company blossom and to create a happy, fun and safe environment for all types of people to enjoy cannabis together.
