Mary Jane University
How would you describe your company? What is your specialty?
Mary Jane University (MJU) reaches the heart and mind of the canna-curious individual and bridges the gap between medicine and education. Our signature line of in-home educational events and courses offer anyone interested in learning about cannabis a unique experience through product reviews, sampling and demonstrations. MJU’s In-home Educators have graduated courses on topics from the endocannabinoid system, history of cannabis, topicals and tinctures, vaping, concentrates, terpenes, CBD, cooking with cannabis and more.
What do you offer consumers/clients that others don’t?
MJU offers [clients] education in the comfort of their own home or corporate environment.
How and why did your company start up?
Cannabis has been in the shadows for so long that many are unfamiliar with all of the methods of use (both ancient and modern). As the stigma lifts, we feel this grassroots, eye-to-eye education is the best way to reach the cannabis curious individual who may easily be overwhelmed at the dispensary. We not only educate about types of cannabis products, but also the ancillary products, which are just as important.
With the changing landscape of medical and recreational cannabis, what do you see as the biggest challenges to your progress as a company? Any advantages?
We only see advantages as society welcomes cannabis into their lives and is understandably confused and curious. We are here to serve the need.
What words of advice would you offer anyone seeking to enter the world of cannabis business?
Be prepared for an ever-changing landscape. We feel like professional log rollers by now! Although there’s been an underground community for decades, we are an industry in its infancy with much growth ahead of us. Perseverance and passion pays off.
What are the goals and vision moving forward, for your company?
We envision MJU being a household name, offering education nationally and perhaps globally!
What do you hope to accomplish in the cannabis industry?
We feel this is an extension of our activism, and as activists, we’d love to see cannabis de-scheduled or at a minimum, rescheduled. Proper education is vital to this goal. In the meantime, we’ll settle for normalization and we clearly see that trend happening.
