Our Team

As serial entrepreneurs, we saw an exploding market sector and explored how we could get into it. We researched and determined the major obstacles in the legal market and developed our business model around solving those issues. As we began to meet with people in the space, we also became involved with advocacy for the legal market.

Empowering Retailers & Brands, Incentivizing Consumer Behavior, Innovating an Industry-Ahead of Federal Legalization


A Glimpse Into the Future (as we see it):

As a seasoned team of startup veterans and technology-based application experts, we wanted to enter into the Cannabis space.

So, in true entrepreneurial spirit, we invented our way in.

Our interest in the future of cannabis led us to create KK TECHNOLOGIES / Kush Klubs.

We set out to solve the current challenges facing the Cannabis Industry.

“It's about building a network of Retailers, Brands and Consumers so big that our voices are echoed in strength, leverage and influence”

Our Accomplishments: 


A PROVEN MODEL: 
BOTH B2B and B2C

Before writing a line of code, we spent more than a year in R&D - learning the industry, establishing connections and determining the best way to penetrate the market.

WE THEN CHOSE 4 LOS ANGELES DISPENSARIES TO RUN OUR BETA TEST

In June 2020, we soft launched it to test our model:

We wanted to know:

- Would someone purchase a cannabis subscription?

- Could we incentivize human behavior?

- Could we increase ROI for a retailer?

- What sort of data could we aggregate?

- How do we build a complete end to end solution?

WE MADE IT SIMPLE FOR CONSUMERS TO USE:

We built an application that allowed consumers to search for dispensaries and products, learn about the products they were interested in, reserve those products, use our proprietary payment system to transact (thus eliminating the need for cash) and pick up those products. 

All while saving up to 60% on their Cannabis purchases

CHECK OUT KUSH KLUBS IN ACTION:

NOTE:  The elegance of our business model is the fact that we hold no inventory nor do we sell any products. 
We negotiate discounts on products at our partner retailers for our Members. Members purchase monthly subscriptions and use our cashless credit system to purchase products at the equivalent credit rate that has been negotiated in advance. We do not touch the plant.


TO FURTHER INCENTIVIZE CONSUMER BEHAVIOR:   
- We limited their daily redemption to maximize frequency
- We established a credit value system with tiers and levels to up-sell them
- We set a hook to draw them in: a $5 gram campaign

THE RESULTS WERE EXCEEDINGLY BETTER THAN EXPECTED:


During the BETA test period we analyzed a lot of data. We had conversations with retailers, brands and consumers. We remained fluid, all the while enhancing our model and offering to what we feel is now a complete solution to own the Cannabis Subscription Membership Space. 

LET'S START WITH THE CHALLENGE AND THE OPPORTUNITY

The Cannabis Industry is undoubtedly growing at a rapid rate.


Yet the legal market is still young. As a result, today's Cannabis landscape is fragmented and faces numerous challenges such as:

Cannabis retailers, brands and consumers have to deal with things like:

- The illicit market that still dominates the market share,  

- Government regulations which make it hard to compete, 

- High taxes making it hard to retain consumer loyalty and 

- Federal restrictions making it hard to advertise - to name a few.

Even social media companies restrict content around Cannabis, making it hard for  Cannabis communities to remain established.

This fragmentation can be debilitating, leaving most Cannabis businesses seriously lacking the ability to Increase Traffic, Customer Frequency and ROI to stay ahead.

To make matters worse, a majority of Cannabis consumers are mainly driven by price, making it difficult for Cannabis businesses to retain consumer loyalty. 

If that isn't enough, the biggest challenge still facing the Industry hasn't even happened yet...Federal legalization 

The Titans of Tech, Brands and Retailers are already planning and positioning themselves to take over and own the Cannabis market once this happens. 

This is a daunting thought for current businesses in the industry. 

These “big players” represent dominance over the market; ultimately squeezing them out.

But, for the company offering the right solution, it is a golden opportunity.

Not only do we want to capitalize on the existing landscape and create a value proposition for our own company ahead of Federal legalization, we want to make a difference and protect some of the existing players in the space from what's to come.

Below is our 2.0....Enjoy!

WHAT IS OUR SOLUTION?: 

A Complete Eco-system where Cannabis Retailers, Brands and Consumers ALL derive value from participating within the Community. 

FOR BUSINESSES (B2B)
 - Our technology allows Retailers and Brands to power their business by deploying tools to Increase Awareness, Traffic, Frequency, Loyalty and ROI by creating and managing their own Memberships Clubs.

Using our SAAS tech solution, a retailer can focus on their core competencies while we power their business by allowing them to:

  • Launch and manage their own website and digital presence 
  • Join a Marketplace to showcase their products and services
  • Manage their back-end business by taking reservations and managing their orders
  • Market and promote their products to consumers
  • Use Social tools to start conversations around their product, get rated, reviewed and  recommended
  • Create and manage subscription-based offerings to create passive and residual income
  • Deploy a Loyalty Program with points, credits, and a Wallet System
  • Connect them together under one Network Umbrella to be visibly seen
  • Analyze and access data and insights, provided by us, to become better informed
Our technology powers Cannabis businesses. We DO NOT touch the plant.

In addition, we give them access to all of these tools for FREE by charging the consumer a monthly Membership Fee.

SOME OF OUR PARTNERS INCLUDE:

FOR CONSUMERS (B2C) - IT STARTS WITH AN ALL ACCESS PASS 


WE ARE LOWERING THE BARRIER TO ENTRY BY OFFERING A FREEMIUM MODEL TO CONSUMERS TO ACQUIRE THEM. 

JOIN Kush Klubs and GET 30 DAYS FREE to use our platform and derive all of the benefits we offer. After 30 days, a member can continue to get all of the benefits for $15/month or stay on the free plan where they can still derive some of the benefits. 

  • This model allows us to widen the net by creating a true Acquisition, Conversion and Retention funnel. It also allows us to create critical mass and aggregate the data of daily active users whether they are Free, Paid and/or Premium.  

    In addition, we bring the value of a Network Effect designed to:
  • Give them tools to make their buying experience simpler, easier and safer
  • Negotiate a better value proposition, giving them access to better pricing, quality and efficacy of products
  • Utilize the data to create a much more immersive experience, and provide curated content and a recommendation engine
  • Gain access to educational content to make better informed choices
  • Create standardization across all Retail Partners and Brands
  • Allow them to use their Membership across our entire Network
  • Connect consumers together into a social community within our platform
  • Take them away from the Illicit Market and drive them to Licensed Retailers

Members can also enjoy a Kush Klubs Lounge at Participating Dispensaries

Kush Klubs is powerful and unique. We are able to provide an equal value proposition to both the B2B and B2C segments within the same market.

Take a look at Kush Klubs 2.0 explained in this video:


    WHY KUSH KLUBS?

    By providing a service which allows retailers to provide discounts to consumers in exchange for increasing their consumer traffic, frequency of visits, loyalty, and ultimately revenues, providing a win-win for them and consumers.

    This mitigates our risk as we are able to profit from both segments of the industry, and do it without hurting one side to benefit the other. In fact, both retailers and consumers profit from our service whereas most services only benefit one side at the expense of the other.

    All of these tools and value propositions create an end to end pipe connecting our supply chain partners to consumers, of which we control. Controlling this pipe gives us access to rich data.

    Gaining a market share by creating a Network Effect and then having access to the data from that ecosystem, gives us a huge opportunity to become an Acquisition Target when Federal Legalization happens. Large players from Big Pharma, Tech, Retail, Brands, and more, are all going to look to gain access to a Network such as ours making us a valuable target.

    We created this solution for a few reasons:

    • Federal Legalization is coming soon and big players will take over the market
    • To give retailers the opportunity to increase their traffic, frequency of visits, loyalty and revenues
    • To pull consumers from the Black Market, where the majority of consumers still go due to the extremely high tax rates on legal product
    • To provide services that most Retailers can’t afford on their own
    • To allow smaller Retailers & Brands to compete with their larger counterparts
    • To create a Network and standardization in the retail segment by bringing retailers together and by using the power of the collective (help the fragmented market)
    • To create a competitive marketplace for consumers
