You’ve heard of Black Friday, right? It’s the day after Thanksgiving, that time of year where people pummel each other for the latest fad toy on the shelf. Don’t believe it? Watch this YouTube video. Well, Green Friday is the cannabis industry’s take on the traditional “Black Friday” frenzy, only kinder and gentler. Synonymous with savings, Oregon’s The Daily Leaf—a digital advertising, marketing and events agency that helps dispensaries, cannabis brands and ancillary companies position themselves for success in the marketplace—brings bottom dollar discounts to people who love cannabis. “Green Friday is also a big time of our calendar since we launched two years ago on this day,” shares The Daily Leaf co-founder Stephen Gold. Check out this interview with Gold to get the 411 on the hot holiday deals.
What's The Daily Leaf doing to make this Green Friday special?
We’ve partnered up with Buddies Brand and Mobelly Farms (Clean Green Certified) to offer a one-of-a-kind special that allows consumers to walk into one of our partnering dispensaries and purchase a quarter ounce of flower and a half gram of live resin for 40 dollars. Currently, a gram of live resin sells for around 70 dollars, so we’re offering a pretty big saving. This special is being offered exclusively in 25 retail locations across Oregon. In total, there will be 64 specials at each location.
What are some of your best deals?
The Daily Leaf has a multitude of deals, exclusives, and specials in rotation and live 24/7 from our 50 or so partnering dispensaries in Oregon. At any time, someone can come onto the Daily Leaf site and find deals on flower, oil, cartridges, edibles, topicals, clones, and accessories. We offer consumers the ability to see a product before walking into the dispensary door—You can see an ounce that is being sold for 99 dollars before driving 20 to 30 minutes to get to the retail location.
What's the best way for people to stay in the know?
It’s always best to sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on all specials and promotions being advertised on The Daily Leaf. Social media is great, but since much of the time we are notifying consumers about the prices of items, we cannot advertise that information on social media. Our newsletter is a comprehensive guide to the best deals around town. To sign up, simply text 420 to 228-28.
Anything else about the day and deals everyone should know about?
The Daily Leaf will be launching our mobile app for iOS and Android mobile phones real soon. We hope to have it launched by the end of 2017.
