Dogma Hashish Will get Provisional Patent On Kief Cup


The Inexperienced Market Report just lately interviewed Geoff Doran, Founder and CEO of Dogma Hashish. This interview was condensed and edited for publication.

Inexperienced Market Report Govt Editor Debra Borchardt:

We just lately had been fortunate sufficient to strive the brand new Kief product from Dogma Hashish and it was pretty spectacular. I feel lots of people don’t fairly get the entire Kief factor. So possibly you may stroll me by means of the thought course of on why you guys selected to incorporate that product as part of Dogma, after which do you see any sort of studying curve on that?

Dogma Founder/CEO Geoff Doran:                 

Yeah, an amazing query, as a result of it’s a type of byproducts that was widespread within the black market days. You’ll see simply precise individuals promoting simply straight-up Kief. It’s sort of like leaves and trim again within the day, individuals used to simply sort of throw that stuff away and it’s like, effectively, you’re throwing away {dollars} of merchandise that may really be nonetheless used. So within the early days, we’d see these merchandise flying off the shelf, after which when issues grew to become authorized, you didn’t see it on the market anymore. There are a few producers which have sort of included it into an infusion technique of simply infusing it with flower and boosting up the efficiency. What we needed to do with King Kief is simply how can we take an idea that’s on the market, however how can we put an revolutionary spin on it that, can sort of set us aside from the remainder of the pack.

So Kief sort of, it saved popping up and we need to do the infused flower pre-rolls however we thought, a great way to sort of make our mark within the business is with an revolutionary solution to sort of preserve it saved. A solution to preserve it from smashing the flower within the precise package deal in order that’s when the thought got here as much as preserve the Kief in a separated unit that attaches to the lid of the hashish flower jar. Trichomes are delicate and then you definately degrade the flower and when that occurs, you’re smashing these trichomes and also you lose efficiency and style.

So it was actually an aha second. What if we preserve this separate to maintain it contemporary? It’s a brand new product, an revolutionary spin on Kief that gives that choice to the client that sort of roll your individual sort of thought course of. We’ve actually hit the bottom working as a result of now you have got a product that you’ve somebody that may say, okay, I’m going to go to this live performance and I need sort of a straightforward evening and so you may simply smoke the flower. Then you may take a look at it a special means and say, it’s Friday and I need to get actually stoned, so let’s add that Kief. Usually we attempt to common that out about 50% efficiency THC-wise. Then you may actually bump up the evening with whether or not you add it to a bowl, bong, your joints.

Inexperienced Market Report:

It positively is nearly turbocharging the hashish if you’ll.


100%, it’s placing gasoline on the fireplace. It’s nice. It’s what legacy shoppers need as a result of that’s what we’re actually going for is individuals that aren’t model new shoppers, model new shoppers wouldn’t even essentially know what Kief is. That is for any person who sees it. Legacy’s the key phrase. It’s the legacy shopper product for positive.

Inexperienced Market Report:                        

Effectively and I wouldn’t make the argument that it isn’t even simply legacy, however I feel it’s additionally market-driven, so like in a market that doesn’t have entry to quite a lot of these merchandise say within the Northeast, I feel that there might be some sort of degree of training the buyer in a few of these newer markets. I feel Californians know what that is and the place to go and purchase it and such, however I feel it’ll be fascinating as hopefully, you department out into different states that it is likely to be just a little little bit of an academic studying curve for purchasers.


I really feel like that’s the opposite solution to onboard for any hashish model proper now. You may’t simply have the legacy shoppers, proper. You must get new shoppers and the one means to try this is by training. So I feel the extra we will educate individuals on simply what even is Kief, get their pleasure ranges up, after which we will really get new prospects, doubtlessly even new hashish prospects, and create new followers.

Inexperienced Market Report:                        

Geoff, what was the method that led you to have this concept to have the little cup. It nearly appears like just a little Ok cup with the hashish container. I agree with you that it’s good to maintain it separate precisely from what you stated, selecting your degree of buzz, if you’ll, when you had this aha second of this separate container, how did you undergo creating it? I imply, it looks as if it’s such a singular design.


We checked out totally different sizes and needed to sort of shave just a little bit to verify it suits into our particular automobile, which is a couple of two-ounce bottle. So we had to verify the cap, each the caps had been going to have the ability to match them. So I needed to do some little bit of sizing on that to verify it-

Then the following step was when the provisional patent got here alongside. There’s quite a lot of copying happening within the hashish business, and so we’ve realized too many occasions that we’d higher get this patent up. So we bought the provisional patent, most likely about 5 months in the past. We’re wrapping up the final tidbits to get the official patent on the packaging as a result of it’s a little tougher clearly to patent hashish. We had been in a position to get the patent for the packaging and so the thought is as we go into different markets, whether or not we’re in a market or not, we want to supply this concept as a solution to monetize the design.

After we roll into different states, we need to expose individuals to alternative ways of that flower, and that that is our means of like, Hey, examine this out. That is one thing new that you are able to do with the byproduct of hashish and right here’s Kief after which it is a product that we sort of joined the 2. Not all states can be on board although, from a regulation standpoint, California considers Kief within the flower zones, so we’re in a position to sort of mix these two and the identical package deal simply has to have two separate COAs. In order that’s the regulation facet of it. So some states may not be on board with that.

We’ve bought to be very cautious once we enter new markets and simply their laws on how they contemplate Kief, is it a focus, or do they contemplate it flower?

Inexperienced Market Report:                        

That may be a good level. So what’s your plan to sort of get the phrase out about Dogma’s Kief?


Now we have a two-prong method. I’m really heading as much as Oakland proper now. We need to introduce it from simply our angle of reaching out and what I name micro-influencers, and so the explanation I’m heading as much as Oakland proper now’s to arrange what we’re all sort of making an attempt to go for proper now as small manufacturers and medium-size manufacturers is direct to shopper setups. We need to sort of management that messaging concerning the Kief product and have that message with the buyer. 

It’s a budtender product, it’s budtender training too, what it’s to get them excited as a result of we all know from simply from information that so many choices are made when you’re on the entrance door of a dispensary or that you would be able to be swayed, like 70% of selections could be swayed. If a budtender sort of pushes you in a single path. So Kief goes to be a type of issues too, quite a lot of budtender training, anytime we’re in a retailer and we’ll take it one retailer at a time to verify they actually perceive what it’s, what’s happening with it. After which it’s one thing thrilling that they’ll share, so once they’re pointing in any respect the totally different flower manufacturers, they’ll say, oh, and there’s additionally this, which isn’t a novelty. That is the true deal, that is one thing particular. It is a high quality premium hashish membership with this added Kief, give them extra to speak about, extra promoting factors, budtender training.

Inexperienced Market Report:                        

What about Corridor Flowers, do you see these types of conferences as an necessary a part of your outreach? Like I feel Exterior Lands in San Francisco that live performance had a particular hashish part. Do you assume that that’s going to be additionally sort of the longer term for hashish manufacturers to get to sort of go direct to the buyer?


Completely. That DTC from an occasion standpoint is essential for us as effectively. Matt was sort of mentioning, like displaying the budtenders and educating the budtenders, we have now to try this correctly selecting these occasions although, as a result of there’s 1000’s of them. However the fashion of Corridor of Flowers is simply good for us as a result of we will, not solely meet with the buyer and present them our revolutionary product however it’s actually centered on a purchaser degree as effectively. So we will sort of educate the client on our product, our model and in flip, actually get our foot within the door after which they’ve already seen the product, seen the innovation after which can practice their prospects and their budtenders as effectively. 

They at all times say phrase of mouth is one of the best in promoting. So we need to wow the client with innovation. So that they go inform a pal and inform 20 pals and get that phrase out about Dogma hashish.

Inexperienced Market Report:                         

In fact, Dogma’s recognized for its charitable contributions to shelter canine. Is that’s nonetheless a giant a part of the corporate?


Completely. Yeah. We’re making an attempt to innovate that course of of training the buyer about who we’re and what we stand for. That aware shopper, and likewise aware firm, however we included on our merchandise, whether or not it’s a baseball card that I feel I despatched to you, that baseball card is simply one other solution to sort of hand out on the budtender degree of, Hey, right here’s some undertake little canine, we’re consistently giving parts of our, income to medical wants for canine. And so which may be a shopper has a pet that wants a medical process and we’re going to attempt to step in and assist out.

That’s an effective way to interact even the budtenders as a result of we will let all of them know too that we don’t have only one shelter we work with. We work with shelters in Palm Springs, up north, down right here. If a budtender, has a neighborhood shelter they like, we’d be comfortable for that month to go together with them. So we at all times supply that to every store, when you’ve got one thing you want, then that means the budtender on the retailer can actually say, oh, I’m really serving to this shelter down the road and sort of get them to be a staff participant with us. And all of us are serving to the canine collectively.
