As the cannabis industry leader here in Oregon, we focus on two things for our customers which are convenience and accessibility. We firmly believe here at Nectar that everyone of legal age should have access to quality cannabis regardless of location, price, or availability. Every customer that comes through our doors is deserving of a great experience when shopping for cannabis, and we are committed to this in all facets of our operations.
When you walk into your local Nectar there is a vast array of products from numerous different and popular brands that we carry. Like most dispensaries, we retail products from different cannabis farms and processors that we do not own. This has been the way cannabis dispensaries have operated for years, but here at Nectar we also like to follow the beat of our own drum!
How Nectar is Changing The Game
While we still retail products from outside of our organization, We have developed 11 of our own Nectar brands that are grown on farms in the beautiful and fertile lands of Southern Oregon. Each farm that grows our Nectar brands are owned by us or one of our premium vendors that we partner with to produce these brands, which means that we have further control of our distribution network for premium Southern Oregon cannabis.
At Nectar we have a saying which is there is never a Nectar too far away. Our business has been fortunate enough to experience and pursue opportunities for expansion. The reason we see expansion as a necessity is because it is truly the only way to fulfill our mission of encompassing accessibility and convenience within a premiere cannabis shopping experience. When we say everyone should have access to quality cannabis we mean everyone, and thanks to our seed to sale business model which stems from our owned farmland and Nectars brands, I can confidently say if there’s not a Nectar near you then we’ll be there soon!
What It Means For Our Customers
At this point you’re probably thinking, “ Daniel, this is great for Nectar, but how am I really experiencing the benefits of this? ” Well don’t worry because I am here to tell you exactly why this is fantastic for our customers. There are three main benefits that our customers directly get when they purchase our Nectar Brands product from our farms. Our distribution network for Southern Oregon Cannabis has allowed for further control in our product pricing, quality control of our product, and overall supply of our cannabis for our customers!
Let’s start with the obvious. The first benefit that our customers directly receive from our distribution model and Nectar brands is the control on our overall supply of cannabis to our stores. Since important points of distribution such as shipping are under our control, we are able to ensure that our stores are always stocked with these Nectar brands. This means our customers have steady access to our best prices and sweetest deals on these cannabis brands.
The next benefit our customers get ,due to the fact our Nectar Brands product come from farms we own, is that we are able to provide better prices for our brands of cannabis compared to items we retail out and compared to our competition. Pair this with our weekly deals and you are in for some major savings with Nectar brands! The reason for this is our business model has effectively cut out the middleman and retailing costs meaning that the revenue accrued from this can go back into growing the premium Southern Oregon cannabis we all love and help save you even more money with Nectar brands!
The final benefit our Nectar brands give to customers is that we have much stronger quality control over our products. Since we operate on the farms where our cannabis is grown we can monitor it from its seed, to its processing, and all the way until it ends up in your hands. This helps us further ensure you are getting the best product possible with Nectar brands as well ensuring safety through our own lab-testing. While all of the products in our stores are 100% percent safe (per OLCC regulation every single batch of cannabis must be lab tested) ,lab testing our own cannabis provides an extra layer of confidence on the already rigorous testing system.
Know Yo Grow
The final benefit for our customers is that our business model gives you the opportunity to know where your cannabis is coming from. Not enough people in the stoner community know where their kush is coming from in my opinion, and that’s because most dispensaries don’t bother to tell them! However at Nectar we believe that it is important to know yo grow so full transparency can be established between us and our customers. That is exactly what we aim to do with this article so you have a better understanding of what we do at Nectar, and an understanding of where your Nectar Brands weed is coming from.
We believe that full transparency between us and our customers on how we do business and acquire our supply further brings legitimacy to the cannabis industry overall, by showing people that we operate in a sustainable, legitimate, and transparent manner. So with this in mind allow me to tell you about our 11 awesome Nectar brands that are owned and grown by us! (Be sure to hit the hyperlinks for further information on our brands)
