Colorado Cannabis Business Expands its Recycling Initiative, to Encourage Marijuana Retailers to Keep Their Businesses Green

posted in: | 0


Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

DENVER (May 26, 2015) – As the nation’s legal cannabis industry expands and evolves, it is also experiencing many of the growing pains felt by other start-up businesses. And like their mainstream counterparts, one major issue that cannabis companies now have to grapple with is how to recycle the tons of paper and plastic that marijuana growers, dispensaries and consumers go through each year.

“Where others see waste we see the opportunity to enhance our environment for the benefit of our community, our retailers and our customers,” says Ryan Fox, founder and CEO of Kindman: one of the largest growers and distributors of legal recreational cannabis in Colorado.

Fox says Kindman is now expanding its own recycling initiative to its marijuana industry partners in Colorado – by encouraging those retailers to make sure Kindman packaging ends up in recycling bins, and not as discarded waste.

“Since opening our doors in 2009, we have actively practiced a 100 percent recycling effort,” he notes, “and as a result, we can proudly say that more than half of our waste is recycled in bins that get taken to Waste Management through their Think Green program. The other half that goes to the landfill, we make sure it’s compostable.”

By state law, all marijuana products in Colorado must be sold in tamper-proof, child-resistant and opaque containers. Those rules make the products safer and easier for regulators to monitor, but they also create the need for making our own packaging recyclable, says Fox.

With those environmental concerns in mind, Fox pioneered Kindman’s pre-packaged, pre-weighed and easily identifiable cannabis brands – and made sure all that packaging material was recyclable.

He took the extra steps to have his company use Plastic #2 – HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) bottles that are much safer for the environment, have a lower risk of leaching and are widely accepted by curbside recycling programs. Plastic #2 is often recycled into pens, recycling containers, picnic tables, lumber, benches, fencing and detergent bottles, to name just a few items.

The rest of the Kindman’s packaging, including its distinctive, forest-green boxes, are made from cardboard and paper that’s accepted by mainstream recycling companies. Fox notes that, even if his retailers don’t have ready access to the usual recycling receptacles, they can encourage consumers to place Kindman packaging in standard, curbside recycling bins.

“We excited about being part of a recycling system here in Colorado with Waste Management, that takes our recycled boxes and bottles and converts them into energy,” he continues.

“Additionally, we have a sense of pride here at Kindman, knowing that our extra efforts play a part in Waste Management’s ongoing initiative to convert our local landfills into wildlife habitats… something that’s very important here in Colorado.”

Recycling is an important part of keeping overall business costs down, but Fox says it’s also part of being an answerable partner in the Colorado communities where Kindman works and its employees live. The company also uses paperless documentation, and its daily tech operations include efforts to further shrink the consumption of paper, plastic and ink used in the state’s legal cannabis industry.

“We have taken on a role as recycling consultants, to make sure our industry goes green and stays green,” he says, “by encouraging our Kindman retailers to follow in our footsteps, and to help their own stores shrink their carbon footprints.”

ABOUT KINDMAN

Established in 2009, Kindman provides customers with an unmatched cannabis product – grown in Colorado state-regulated facilities at indoor locations, using a customized process that combines food-grade nutrients and a unique soil mix that brings out the plant’s best features. Close attention is paid to product cleanliness, quality, curing and processing.

Since the January 1, 2014 start of legalized sales of recreational cannabis to adults in Colorado, Kindman has provided high-quality marijuana flowers to tens of thousands of customers from over 100 countries.

posted in: | 0


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 03, 2012

The Mile High City will play host to the National Marijuana Business Conference 2012 next week. John Malanca, owner of the medical marijuana resource website UnitedPatientsGroup.com, says “Colorado’s medical marijuana community is a model for the national cannabis industry and movement as well as the perfect location to host the industry’s premier conference.”

National Marijuana Business Conference 2012 will feature over 40 speakers on burning topics ranging from the latest innovations and consumer trends to the likely impact of the national elections and how the medical marijuana community can affect changes in policy and legislation.

More than 200 cannabis business professionals from 18 states are expected to participate in the conference, including Tripp Keber, CEO of Red Dice Holdings, president of Medical Marijuana Inc.’s manufacturing division, and managing director of Dixie Elixirs & Edibles, which makes THC-infused medications, and Dixie X, which produces over the counter hemp oil wellness products.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to learn from Tripp Keber and other medical marijuana industry thought leaders from around the nation,” said Malanca. “Medical patients—especially those suffering from chronic pain—need all-natural alternatives to dangerous pharmaceuticals like opiates, which are highly addictive and increasingly fatal with rising incidents of overdose. These are the people who are making things happen.”

Keber is a long-time cannabis activist and industry supporter. He is a founding member of the National Cannabis Industry Association and currently sits on the Colorado Medical Marijuana Industry Group Advisory Board.

“The marijuana business community is full of responsible leaders and caregivers who want to make real change in the world,” said Keber. “I am proud to be a member of this noble group and grateful for the opportunity to speak at the conference.”

Business Science

posted in: | 0

Business as a science, compared to the science of war, is still rather young. While Sun Tzu already 2400 years ago formulated his important military ‘management’ doctrines, it took nearly these same 2400 years before a retired French mining engineer, Fayol (1841-1925), for the first time in history wrote a paper on the tasks of the manager in a business firm. In 1916 he published in the Bulletin de la Société de l’Industrie Minérale an article on « Administration Industrielle Générale, Prévoyance, organisation, commandement, coordination, et controlé (1).The French Military establishment quickly understood that these ideas about ‘administration’ could also be useful in the military context. At the age of 71 they invited Fayol to lecture at their famous ‘École Superieure de la Guerre’(2).

If the military are inclined to learn from business theories, then vice versa business can learn from the military.

Probably because of the harsher global competition the trend can be noticed that more and more senior managers are trying to protect their firms against, or even counter, the competition by getting inspiration from military principles. In particular competing with developing (Asian) countries, either through their low cost of labour or through a steep technological ascend, requires a broad understanding of the environment, the strengths and weaknesses of the competition, of the nature of one’s own forces and understanding the current situation to secure the future of the firm. Overcoming the Asian competition is the challenge of the present day European firm and the steady development of the European Union can be a stimulating power in this process. Business as a science is about: a strategic doctrine, planning, critical success factors, tactics, intelligence, the moral component and last but not least to leadership.

Colorados Leading Cannabis Business Experts, Clover Leaf Consulting Hosted A64 Only Cannabis Video Symposium Series Third Event Thursday January 17th 2013.

posted in: | 0

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

On November 6th, Colorado passed Amendment 64 being the first U.S. state to regulate recreational cannabis in history. The passing of Amendment 64 has raised hopes of expanding marijuana business opportunities and tax revenues. In fact, the first forty million dollars annually will go to fund education. This historic event has generated excitement across the country, but also holds many questions on the implementation of a substance transitioning out of prohibition. This has a direct impact on current and future cannabis business owners.

The Cannabis Industry’s projected value is between $ 3 – $ 4 billion with an influx of “Ganjapreneurs” and investors seeking to capitalize on this major opportunity. Due to the fact that it is a black market legitimizing itself out of prohibition, the industry’s growth could be exponential with the passing of national legalization and implementation in the coming years. This does not take into account the ample business opportunities being developed for industrial hemp. “Colorado’s Cannabis Community has not only helped educate patients and validate the efficacy of medical cannabis, but it also created and stabilized a medical cannabis business model as well,” says Villano. “I believe HB1284 & Amendment 64 will eventually find common ground for regulation, offering tremendous business opportunities, investments, educational programs, job training and generate large economic stimulation in Colorado.”

The A64 Symposium will be highlighted into two segments.

“THC DUI” 7:00-7:45 pm

Since Colorado’s historic vote to legalize the regulation of recreational cannabis we have been unsure of the repercussions that would come from first time system errors, and miseducation for our leaders. We have fought this unreasonable bill tooth and nail and guess what…its back. Join Clover Leaf’s CEO Chloe Villano along with Mike Elliott, Esq., Sean McAllister Esq., Anne Toney P.C., Professor Daniel Rees, and The Colorado Department of Transportation as we discuss the THC DUI.

“Regulated Rules Task Force Update” 8:10 pm – 9:00 pm

The “Rule making” Govoner’s Task Force has been meeting all week long. We have been uncertain of our transitioning process as we expand the Cannabis Industry in Colorado, open more businesses, and make changes to our existing systems and procedures. What can we expect? What can we do? Join Clover Leaf’s Chloe Villano, along with our diverse panel of experts from the leading industry groups as we discuss the task force update and first draft development of the rule making process for Colorado’s regulated marijuana laws. Speakers include Bob Dill, Warren Edson, Robert Corry Jr, Meg Sanders, and Mike Elliott.

With the current legislative rules in flux, its important to get all the latest facts, figures as well as network with fellow industry professionals. Therefore Cloverleaf Consulting has provided the Industry manditory Information by hosting the following Amendment 64 Cannabis Business Symposium event series. This is the third event in the series. Clover Leaf will hold the Cannabis Business Symposiums the third thursday of every month at Casselmans. Future Symposium dates include: February 21, March 21, April 18, May 23, and June 20, 2013.

Marijuana Business Training To be Held in Gainesville, Florida this Saturday with Cannabis Career Institute

posted in: | 0


Gainesville, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2014

Students in Gainesville, Florida are invited to learn about the cannabis industry this Saturday from medical marijuana business training experts with the Cannabis Career Institute.

Students will learn about the industry from instructors who have been involved in the medical marijuana business sectors in California, Washington and Colorado. CCI has been actively teaching medical marijuana business training to entrepreneurs across the country since 2009.

With Florida laws changing rapidly, entrepreneurs are finding that understanding the industry is the first step needed in order to create a successful business. CCI classes provide students the proper knowledge required to get started ahead of potential passage of medical marijuana legalization in Florida.

Polls are showing that an overwhelming majority of Florida residents are in favor of Marijuana as Medicine. Should the state legalize medical marijuana, as expected, a wide variety of business opportunities will emerge and entrepreneurs will need to learn an extensive amount of knowledge to enter the industry. CCI classes provide business training information for the industry, in a very comfortable setting that allows students to learn, network and even request specialized one-on-one consulting from the instructors.

Robert F. Calkin, the founder of Cannabis Career Institute, is a Delivery Specialist who teaches Delivery 101 at Oaksterdam University. He is also the author of “Starting Your Own Medical Marijuana Delivery Service; The Caregivers Handbook”, actively worked with Jack Herer in the American Hemp Council and has been an outspoken activist for Marijuana Legalization across the United States for several decades. Calkin created Cannabis Career Institute in 2009 to help educate individuals on compliance regulations, business implementation, best practices and procedures for the cannabis industry. CCI classes provide information on opening up a medical marijuana dispensary, starting a grow operation for medical marijuana, learning how to set up an edibles operation and how to start a delivery service for medical marijuana patients. Students that attend the all day class are provided with detailed information that allows them to properly organize their business agenda and learn what it will take to make a proper infrastructure work.

The Cannabis Industry as a whole has been called a 600 billion dollar industry and has gathered a lot of interest for expanding cannabis education. With this new industry also comes the potential for new jobs, new business opportunities and a variety of new services. The cannabis industry is expected to come to Florida after November and entrepreneurs need to learn the best way to get involved.

Cannabis Career Institute is welcoming media to the class – outside of the classroom to speak with instructors. For more information on Media Contact Call (800) 753-2240.
