The Future Concerning Cannabis Seed Companies and Industry
Just like how the fast food industry has evolved in order to up the competition for “stomach share”, certain industries have had to contend and evolve with the times to gain an edge in the return of investments. Also, we tackle considerations and observations for the future of cannabis seed companies and the given business model in the market, today.
The Case for Medicinal Cannabis Seeds
Out of the ringer, we have to acknowledge that cannabis seeds are not just an “in thing” for people to engage in.
There is a good enough demand for it as a form of medicinal therapy. And, you can argue that this is applicable to almost all plant life that contains even a modicum of deep phytonutrient color (yes, we are talking about those vegetables that they tell you to eat).
Case in point, those doctor-approved vegetables are just variations of certain herbs, spices, and medicinal plants.
Some good examples are the species and diversity that one can find mushrooms—too many varieties, from gourmet cooking to healing modalities.
This is where cannabis seeds are no different, technically, as they are variations of some medicinal plant or herb.
What separates the cannabis seed from the other competition, though? More often than not, it is the reputation that it can have for fast growth rates.
You may need to be particularly careful when it comes to the planting, growing and harvesting processes that will come, but all in all, they are quite lucrative for the time and space spent in shaping the seeds to maturity—they grow fast and they deliver, when cared for properly.
Cannabis Seed Entrepreneurship: Getting Started
First and foremost, you want to be in the right mindset when you are in cases like these. It would probably be for the best to remind yourself that you are not just selling of weeds of plants that just happen to grow in your backyard or something.
More than anything, you have to embrace the fact of the matter in that the cannabis seeds you are growing and selling contribute much more to society than just simply a resource for recreational activity.
Case in point, we have these platforms and benefits that can get you in the proper and noble mindset towards creating your personal and customizable business like those of other cannabis seed companies. If you can find it in yourself to look at these avenues and venture opportunities, you can find yourself in a lucrative position as much and a path set for a better legacy.
With all that said, cannabis seeds can give you opportunities for (to say the least):
1.)Medicinal Plant Production (as part of psychedelic therapy)
- This is particularly helpful if you want to appeal and aid in the creative processes that befall the musician, painter or artists in general. Mature states of cannabis can get people in a trance-like meditative state (psychedelic states). These states can help these artistic types (or types that use many imaginative processes) to essentially, tap into neuroplastic ideas that may otherwise be quite separate from one another.
2.)Optional Addition To Other Services (as part of vacation options)
- You can certainly venture out into the realm of cooking and culinary service. But mature cannabis can often be a palate challenged depending on how you cook them and pair them with other ingredients. That said, you could go for an option like a bed and a breakfast type o setup which values more of customers being able to enjoy mature cannabis while enjoying a nice vacation in the countryside (swell idea, in all honesty).
3.)Aesthetic Setups (as part of added décor provided in diluted form)
- Like all plants, cannabis has a particular look and scent. This scent can be familiar to people if you put them alongside roses or other common flowers in a bouquet. But, if prepared and designed for diluted forms (shaved, carved or dusted off) of cannabis, this can be an unorthodox, welcoming and fresh approach to the craft.
The Prospect and Promise of Cannabis Seeds Industry
In terms of marketing, “stigma” is often a common description that the industry has had to face a variety of reasons, notwithstanding. Nowadays, the stigma or barrier for communication, is coming down in reasonable rates (depending on the argument).
It is a cliché to often admit that “cleaning up your act” is one of the most fundamental and ever-present principles in successful trade and business with clients and potential clientele—those who have yet to venture trying out cannabis.
Understandably, it can seem quite grim and gloomy for those that just want to enjoy a good cannabis session in nature.
But, the future (as with other industries) is getting more and more social and people are trying out so many different options from phones to designer furniture and all sorts of other products—from Coke to a soap.
Cannabis seed companies learn from that too and so can you—take note of these common-sense observations below.
You Cannot Fake It
You cannot fake out a marketing strategy if you do not have some sort of research and belief in the product you are selling. Cannabis seeds are stigmatized but this potentially means that they have capacities to reach out to different effects—as psychedelics or other functions.
And, honestly, you can take advantage of this by doing a great amount of research and engaging in interviews from those who truly know.
That being said, take a whack at getting to know your cannabis seed product before you market and eventually launch your product statements. Another case in point, get to know these purveyors to begin this process:
1.)Local Farmers (those who grow these plans for everyday consumption)
2.)Cannabis experts or researchers (they have spent more time trying to make known the importance of these plants on the small scale and large-scale operations in ecology and economy).
Industry Strategies Change—a lot
There is a common misconception that befalls many an entrepreneur when it comes to those who have successful businesses or companies based on the same product they are trying to sell: they copy their material expecting the same result.
Of course, this does not often work (we do not see so many successful businesses to the level of McDonald’s in the fast-food area, globally).
In this case, you have to foresee the different ways your cannabis seed product can go. This, of course, research (see above) and getting to know purveyors and experts. But it can also mean venturing out to other ideas from other industries (also see above).
This way, the product can always be viewed from very different perspectives and it is a perspective that really connects and sells with audiences—we can only buy so many burgers with some fries on the side.
Do what you can to view the cannabis plant not just in terms of a plant but in the form of an idea not seen before. This is what separates, in general, the entrepreneur that does not grow and those entrepreneurs who cannot seem to stop growing.
Shape, isolate, incubate, stack and pile and just do just about anything to engage your mindset to sell your cannabis seed product from multiple layers of the perspective of how another person can use it.
Then go do the work. What work, you say? Well…
Grow Up and Let Your Business Grow
As we get more and more in tune with technology, we get more and more social media. And, social media is a reflection of what we do on an everyday basis (Facebook and comparing ourselves every day, for example).
And, with all that tech and social media, we have more and more accountability factors that responsibility than ever before. Hey, all positives have negatives, at some point or another.
That said, you have to work on your own appearance and presentation. It is a tough piece of advice and one that has (probably) warranted more demand from those who sell cannabis products than other industry marketers and sellers.
Granted, nobody wants to hear criticism with what, how and why they should wear a clean enough suit or a well presented (and sensible) advertising of the product just to sell something that could just be thrown into someone’s face.
But people want verification and identity (again, look at Facebook). It may very well be a ridiculous piece of a standard, but they are standards. Your own business and the business of other cannabis seed companies depend upon them—good or bad.
The Future – Where Does Cannabis Go from Here?
You tell us, friends. The promise and prospect of cannabis seed production are still on the fence on whether it can truly hit the mainstream and with very limited downside, fallback or backlash.
But as newer and newer perspectives come in from all sorts of media (social media being quite dominant), the future of cannabis seeds and plants can change, too.
Cannabis seed companies have employed a variety of different tactics and marketing strategies to appeal to the masses of the changing times.
But, as often is the case with another phenomenon, it may be that the small-scale companies like humble startups that can help the cannabis seed plant reach places not reached before.
