With sales in 2016 topping over $1 Billion dollars for cannabis (in fact, Colorado hit that number in the first 10 months of the year), it’s no surprise that a large number of professionals are leaving corporate jobs for this new industry.  Professionals and entrepreneurs alike are seeing how lucrative this industry can be.   However, a lot of them are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of cultivation, retail setup, and even the legal aspects of working within the industry.   That’s where Shift Cannabis Co. comes in.   Shift Cannabis Co is based in Longmont, Colorado and is a consulting firm that specializes in the cannabis industry.

Shift is a consulting firm made up of individuals who believe “[b]outique is better, life is to be lived, and nothing is more serious than enjoying ourselves.”   These ideals have lead them to working specifically with boutique cannabis cultivation and retail.   Offering a wide range of consulting needs – including application preparation, operations, facility design, and brand building – Shift can provide cannabis companies insight and direction on many aspects of the industry.

When it comes to cultivation and production assistance, Shift is there to provide assistance and experience in cultivation techniques, genetic resource management, and even contract cultivation services.   These services can definitely aid those new to the industry and even those with years of experience who are looking for new techniques or ideas.   When it comes to cultivation, Shift’s consultants “have hands-on experience with hundreds of cannabis varietals, including a large selection of CBD dominate strains.”

No matter if you are new to the cannabis industry or have years of experience, Shift Cannabis Co can provided assistance in many of your everyday business needs.   If you’re looking for consulting assistance and specifically interested in working with a group who does “the right thing, by our clients, by our planet, and by this wonderful plant” then Shift may just be the consulting firm for you.
