I founded the CBA because I saw some real challenges that this nascent segment of the cannabis industry would face. Having been a founding member and elected president of the CCCA and participating in it’s successful grass-roots efforts shape the cannabis delivery segment of the industry and the regulations to the benefit of delivery operators and customers across the state, I pulled together my peers and friends in this space to cooperatively work towards more sensible regulations as well as educating consumers and policy makers on the amazing benefits of infused beverages.
With great opportunity, comes even greater responsibility, and I personally know all too well the pain, hardships, and inequality prohibition of cannabis has created. This sudden shift to a legalized market is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of historic change. But this change also requires a seismic shift in consciousness and awareness. As early adopters, and innovators, there are still many mountains that need to be moved to create equitable access, and cross the chasm to start the healing process. So I’m honored to accept the call to action, to lead by example as a CBA Board Member, serve others, and encourage all thought leaders, innovators, advocates from past and present to work together to be the change in the world we see now!
To leverage out united strength to highlight and educate the trade and consumers on the superior benefits of cannabis consumption through beverages.
The CBA’s mission and our core values at K-Zen closely align. At K-Zen, we are fighting to normalize cannabis through beverages and provide access for those who need it most. We are also big believers in sensible regulation and education, which are part of the CBA’s mission.
