WELCOME TO KANTOKA: SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

 

Welcome to Kantoka! We are buzzing over our new site launch and sharing our platform with you.

As longtime lovers and consumers of cannabis, we want to see the legal industry grow, and most importantly, we want to see it grow good weed. Producers are starting to step up, craft is getting to roll out, and new products will be hitting the shelves into the new year. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start. 

Let’s be real, a mature and viable industry existed long before legalization, and we need to bring that knowledge, passion, and quality to loyal consumers. We designed this platform to give everyone a voice, so that we can work towards a sustainable, legal market together.

Kantoka is derived from a Japanese word that means “something.” To us, Kantoka means something inclusive and community-driven. This is a place to learn, share, grow, and connect, regardless of your experience with cannabis.

We want to introduce ourselves to you today and let you know where we’ve set our sights for 2020. Stay in the know by signing up for the newsletter and following us on social.

Medical Consumers: Medical consumers and advocates paved the way for adult-use legalization, yet their needs have been largely overlooked in favour of the recreational market. As part of our commitment to serving the whole cannabis community, we will continue to add our voice to patient advocacy, connect patients with clinics and licensed producers, seek out affordable cannabis that does not compromise on quality, and provide relevant information on studies, breakthroughs, and news that can support the medical market.

Retailers: Legalization has been a slow jumping off point for licensed retailers, with different models being implemented across the country. As a consumer-focused platform, we will be listening to your wants and needs and helping direct you to the best products in your neighborhood based on reviews, retailer profiles, and curated shopping guides.

Products and Accessories: We love cannabis and we want to share our experiences with you, and also hear what you’re loving, loathing, and looking forward to. We’re constantly researching and testing the latest and greatest so we can help consumers make informed decisions. Look out for reviews from our team and well as our community.

Job Portal: Looking for a new gig? Cannabis legalization is injecting the opportunity for economic vitality in our country. We’re proud to support prospective employees and employers who are looking to build a thriving and sustainable industry together. So stay-tuned for more updates.

Brand Ambassador Program: Kantoka is meant to be something for everyone, and that means we want you on our team. We’re launching our brand ambassador program in early 2020, designed to build leadership experience as you engage and educate a broader audience. Details coming soon!

Early Adopters: Don’t have time to commit to our ambassador program? Sign up to our newsletter, gain first access to our marketplace, and learn how you can help with product testing and reviews.

Community Partnerships: We’re building a company to help us do the good work. Led by women and visible minorities, we understand the barriers and challenges that many individuals and groups face daily. Part of our mission is to create and support community initiatives so we can help build a better world, inspired by the healing nature of the plant.

Launch Party: You know those birthdays that last for days or weeks? Ya, we’re kind of on that vibe. Kantoka is a project that has been building in the background and we are so excited to share it with you. Stay tuned for our Vancouver launch party, as well as awesome gifts from our favourite tried and true brands. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social to stay connected for the celebrations.

We’re thrilled to welcome you to this space as we explore everything from herbal intros to intricacies. We’ll bring you educational information that is easily consumed so you can further inform your decisions when it comes to interacting with the current legal landscape. This includes product and accessory reviews, highlights of industry leaders and up-and-comers, basic 101 breakdowns for those who wanna know, and high-level looks for those that want to know more.

We encourage our community to have a voice. Let us know what you’re digging on the site, what we’re missing, and what we can do to help create the best experience for you.
