Kush Bottles is a dynamic sales and distribution platform that provides packaging, supplies, vaporiser products, accessories, and branding services to cannabis dispensaries, retailers, growers, and processors. With their value-added evangelical salesforce, their highly trained, in-house sales team is critical given the early stages of this industry. The California-based company was founded in 2010 with the goal of helping entrepreneurs entering the cannabis industry overcome the many barriers to entry.
Kush Bottles services more than 3,000 producers, processors and retailers in the wholesale/B2B market for both medical and legal recreational use and they’ve created one of the largest product libraries in the cannabis industry, with distribution serving North America, South America and Europe. The Company aims to be the gold standard for responsible, customised branding and packaging in this rapidly accelerating industry.
As Nick Kovacevich (Founder and CEO) said,
“So now, imagine you have a license to extract oil, THC oil. All you have to worry about is running your machine, putting trim through there, and pulling out THC oil. From there, you just buy everything else from Kush Bottles, and you’re on the market with a premium product that’s infused with Terpenes, that’s differentiated and bioavailable to the patient.
And it comes in a premium cartridge that does not leak, with a branded battery, with a nice box or blister packaging that goes around it, and a label that’s compliant. Boom.”
