Justin Mendez & Grandma

My name is Justin, and I really love everything about weed, or cannabis if you prefer to keep it formal.

I am passionate and curious about the people who grow and make our favorite products, to the scientists studying the plant, and those who benefit from using it. I want to make cannabis (and cannabis education) more accessible for everyone.

Weed has been a part of my life since I was young, and I dove head first into the California recreational market the moment it came into effect in 2018. I have built and run cannabis companies all across the state of California from Sacramento to the Bay and LA.

I have had my hands in many parts of the industry, from managing indoor cultivation and distribution, to creating and launching brands, as well as building and operating dispensaries and deliveries.

I have been really lucky to be able to work directly with many of the brands & people who make this industry so special and unique. At the same time, I have been at the front lines to see and feel the pains and struggles of both cannabis companies and consumers.

For brands, regulations force two middle men between them and the consumer. This means they don’t get to take ownership of their relationship with customers, and have no control over the pricing or positioning of their products in the dispensary or on the delivery menu. This separation makes it really hard for a brand to stand out from the rest, or to be able to explain to a consumer what makes their product special.

For consumers, it is challenging to find consistent quality products that are right for them, and those extra middle men mean that prices are marked up higher than they need to be. Add on an overwhelming selection at any dispensary, with stock rotating in and out unpredictably, and little information on the quality and or effect of those products.

Don’t get me wrong, distributors and retailers play a very important role in providing access to consumers, and sales numbers across the nation prove that they are moving a lot of weed…

But the supply chain, and customer experience suffer as a result.

To make matters worse, the cannabis community isn’t able to come together on big social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok. We all try, but we know that discussion of cannabis results in having our accounts restricted, shadow banned, or outright deleted.

This censorship forces the industry to turn to online directories that charge huge amounts of money to advertise to consumers. While these directories have positively affected the cannabis industry by increasing access, the high cost of these services forces retailers to offer unsustainable flashy discounts or deals to entice consumers. People become distracted from what the plant can do, instead focusing on fancy packaging and price point.

The industry is really hurting (NCIA Study shows only 26% of polled companies were profitable), and people aren’t getting the best products for their needs. It’s time the cannabis community creates a better place for both businesses and consumers. A place for our community to call home and come together around the plant. A place where brands are able to share what makes them special, and consumers can share their experiences with weed, working together to lift cannabis out of the dark ages and stigma that surrounds it.

This is where WeedSociety comes in.

Our Mission at WeedSociety is to create a safe and diverse digital community for everyone who loves weed, from consumers to industry insiders who are passionate or curious about cannabis.

The goal is for people to easily and comfortably connect with like-minded individuals to discuss the plant, products, and anything else related to weed.
