It’s hard to believe that the two-year anniversary of the pandemic is approaching. It has been another challenging year for a lot of industries, including cannabis, but we are still proud of how we have continued to grow and evolve as a business. A big thank you to all of you for your ongoing support. Whether you purchased Stori, took our CannEd e-learning course, participated in an online survey or contest – we thank you!
We wanted to take this opportunity to share a few highlights with you from 2021.

We conducted a survey to find out if mom’s talk to their kids about cannabis
In honour of Mother’s Day, we conducted a survey to understand the sentiment mothers have about talking to their kids about cannabis. We were especially curious if moms still felt the need to hide their cannabis products post-legalization. The survey had over 1,300 participants and of those, 57% said they still hide their cannabis at home.
We partnered with the Professional Security Knowledge Network (PSKN) to promote cannabis education in the workplace
We continued our work with PSKN to promote cannabis education amongst police officers and security professionals. Individuals in these roles have a responsibility to serve and protect the public without bias which is why cannabis education is so important.
