Publisher's Message
By Mike Dumke
Those who make their livings in the Cannabis industry aren't your average businesspeople. We thrive on adaptation, change, progress, and the excitement of knowing that we're helping shape an industry that is experiencing explosive growththe type of rapid growth that's unprecedented in nearly any other industry.
From my entrepreneurial background, I know all too well how challenging it can be to launch a business and succeed in a dynamic, increasingly competitive environment. As I became more involved in the Cannabis industry, the need for a product-driven magazine quickly became apparent. The constant advancements in products and services across all industry categories is proof positive that business owners need help staying current.
Cannabis Product News (CPN) promises to become the "go-to" magazine for Cannabis professionals. When product and service applications can provide answers for your business, you can count on us to keep you informed. This need for business solutions was instrumental in shaping the unique editorial style you will find in each issue of CPNa style that puts products, services, and business solutions in context with applications and management of a more successful business. Our team of experienced business-publishing professionals has been hard at work, armed with the knowledge that CPN will becomes a valued resource and contribute greatly to our readers' business sustainability and growth.
Those of us at Cannabis Product News value your opinions and encourage your honest feedback. We'll continue to adjust and refine our content to best serve your needs as we move forward in this dynamic, ever-evolving industry. Allow me and the CPN staff to welcome you to this premiere issue the first of many issues to come. We consider it an honor and a privilege to take this journey with you.
From the Editor
By Phil Samuelson
The magazine you're now reading reflects the vision and dreams of a small team of entrepreneurs and business-magazine professionals. Our background in print publishing and other lucrative ventures provided the necessary skills and experience to identify an important missing niche in the rapidly growing world of legal Cannabis periodicals. That industry niche is products.
There are many Cannabis business publications out there, but none are devoted entirely to promoting Cannabis-related products and innovations as well as the service providers who are so important and necessary for guiding business owners and driving our industry forward. Thus, Cannabis Product News (CPN) was born. This was a natural progression for me. My role as editor-in-chief of successful product-focused B2B magazines in other industries served me well during the launch of CPN.
The explosion of new product releases come from an ever-increasing number of companiesand this rapid influx shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. The products we'll feature will span the entire industry, whether it be indoor and outdoor cultivation, processing, extracts, edibles, smoking and vaporizer accessories, or lightingif it's a product or service related to the Cannabis industry, we'll feature it. Consulting service-providers fill a valuable role for both established and emerging companies and retail businesses, as well, so you can depend on us for solid information in the areas of law, financial management, real estate, marketing, and branding.
The Cannabis Product News team eagerly anticipates growing with the industry and serving you, the reader, in your quest for the latest products and services information. Whether you're a grower, manufacturer, or retailer, CPN will keep you informed about the latest product-driven business solutions and inventory to keep your businesses on solid ground. We look forward to having you joining us for the ride! 3
