We are advisors to leaders of cannabis and hemp companies across the nation.
Our clients often come to us during the most critical times for their companies, so we feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to get things right and have an undying commitment to overdeliver. Because these times are so important for their companies, we feel it to be equally important for our company to support them.
Whether we are providing our clients specific services or retained by them throughout their entire process or project, you can be sure that we have partnered with trusted professionals who value our relationship as much as we value yours.
It is our privilege and honor to be trusted and counted on by some of the most respected and accomplished companies in our industry when embarking on initiatives significant in their history and important to their future.
When we were looking for inspiration to stand out in this new market yet still resonate a vision and a message that is applicable, we went to the history books and found the great story of Chartreuse Liqueurs. You can read more on their website here, but we loved the story and the imagery associated with this timeless brand.
In 1605, a group of French monks received a manuscript with a secret formula for creating an "Elixir of Long Life". The formula is thought to have come from a 16th Century alchemist who concocted this formula after blending, infusing, and macerating over 130 herbs, plants, and botanicals to produce a balanced tonic. Cannabis also has a history of benefiting users throughout history - from Native Americans to today's medical and recreational users. We think cannabis will become the new standard in treating many conditions that will add to your longevity and happiness.
We also designed our logo on the Globus Cruciger featured on their bottle and in many European paintings from the same time. Read more about the Globus Cruciger here!
