Contracted Sales Consultant - Commission Based
Reports to: CEO
Women, people of color, and LGBTQ people strongly encouraged to submit proposals
We believe that cannabis and other drug-related laws have disproportionately hurt the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people. As a compliant cannabis company, we believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage proposals from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
We set out in 2016 as a small group of scientists and entrepreneurs with a simple goal: to make cannabis products that we’d be proud to put out into the world.
We knew cannabis-derived CBD products were bringing relief to many, but we also saw that they were some of the most expensive items on the shelf. That didn’t seem right to us.
We started to work with local farmers to make affordable CBD products for friends, family, and members of our collective. Before long, we realized that our efforts were starting to make an impact. We heard from those who came to rely on our products, and find real benefit from using them. And they could afford to use them!
Our vision became clear: we’d make affordable, high quality CBD products for those who rely on them.
