Thanks to Smuggle Portland we have a recap video of some highlights from last weeks Oregon Hemp Convention. Please watch and share!
Smuggle Portland is currently raising $250,000 to transform their online store into a flagship location in Portland that sells high-end, cannabis-related accessories designed for women and Baby Boomers.
Smuggle’s co-founder, Renee Spears, said, “Baby Boomers and women are fast growing segments in cannabis. They don’t want to visit a headshop with black lights and blacked-out windows. We’re offering them a welcoming and elegant experience, both at our retail location and online. We want to help them stay healthy and conscious with products that epitomize the Pacific Northwest, cannabis lifestyle.”
Based on sales recorded for the Seattle Metro area, Portland is likely to sell over $200 million in cannabis alone in 2016. The associated products market is valued at twice that amount. This estimates the local ancillary market to be worth $400 million this year. Smuggle co-founder, Stephen Cahill, said, “We’re eager to meet our investors, share our business model, and demonstrate how we’re making decisions in this rapidly changing culture. I see our investors as thought leaders who want to align their money with their values.”
