Are you looking to start an ecommerce website for THC or CBD sales?

Currently the United States deals with THC and CBD sales on a state-to-state basis leaving you the merchant, left to figure out what is right from wrong. Luckily for you, MAK Digital is familiar with the cannabis industries online restrictions and barriers, and we are prepared to help you sell more. Regardless of what you specifically sell, if you are in the cannabis industry you will likely run into challenges with federal and state restrictions, as well as demonization from 3rd party technology products and services. If this is you, there may be substantial benefits to aligning with a qualified Ecommerce agency that understands and supports companies in the cannabis industry.

The Global Cannabis Industry is growing, along with the need for online marketing services.

As the United States grows ever closer to legalizing marijuana, the more states that legalize for recreational use, leads to a massive increase in online traffic. People want the relevant information, where to buy, when they can, how much, can they order online, and so much more! MAK understands what it takes to rank your site high on search engine result pages, you should be the first source people go to when looking to get involved in the cannabis industry.

Cannabis and stores that sell related products are under attack.

Despite the fact that the cannabis infustry is thriving and with increasing demand from customers who are taking their cannabis purchases online more than ever before, the cannabis industry remains under constant attack from the federal government, states, political activists, and even technology partners.

This brings a unique set of challenges to cannabis stores that sell online, which include the following:

Cannabis stores are forced to comply with very strict laws and regulations around the products they sell.

Federal, state and local laws inject a level of complexity that will often deter cannabis store owners from taking their business online. Those that sell cannabis products are burdended with the task of ensuring that the product is shipped to legitimate customers, and any cannabis store that sells online will need to adhere to laws specific to the state their product is being purchased from.

This adds a deep level of complexity to the way an online cannabis store website will need to function, which results in either a ton of manual process to properly conduct business, or a lot of development customization to accommodate; both burden which fall to the owner.

This also greatly restricts the choice of Ecommerce platform that an online cannabis merchant has, which is already a very tiny landscape. The only viable choices that remain are typically, BigCommerce, Magento, or WordPress with WooCommerce, although the latter option is not really viable for legitimate online cannabis dispensaries.

The technology industry, particularly as it pertains to online commerce, has been left-leaning since it’s dawn. Normally, this would just be an observed characteristic, since business is business; however in today’s climate this has translated into the technology industry as a whole adopting particular business strategies to be in-line with the trending political climate.

The cannabis industry while gaining popularity is still vilified in some online ecommerce communities. When platforms don’t allow the sale or advertising of CBD and THC products, this forces the industry into a smaller amount of marketing channels available. This dramatically reduces the pool of talent that cannabis industry stores can leverage for website design, marketing, website development, SEO, strategy, and other website-related services.
