About Cannabis Consumers Coalition
The Cannabis Consumers Coalition is a consumer advocacy organization that acts as a watchdog group over the growing cannabis industry to ensure ethical business practices. Protecting the consumer is at the heart of what we stand for. As a membership organization, we work collectively to address issues such as quality control, price gouging, using harmful chemicals, mislabeling, lack of testing, and poor customer service.
The Cannabis Consumer Coalition was created out of a need for a voice for the cannabis consumer. The emerging cannabis industry has been dominated by trade organizations lobbying for regulations that benefit big business, however, there were no organizations that focused solely on the consumer. The Cannabis Consumers Coalition emerged to fill that need.
The organization chose to be called the Cannabis Consumers Coalition because the way to affect change is through unity. Through collective action, consumers have strength in numbers to uphold industry standards that consumer’s value, not only what contributes to a business’s bottom line. Through member meetings and calls to action, members play an active role in assuring consumer rights in the cannabis industry. Our merchant partners are also a part of this unified group and consist of businesses that have made a commitment to ethical business practices and putting consumers first.
What differentiates us from other cannabis rating organizations is that we are a non-profit consumer advocacy group that goes beyond providing ratings and also investigates to find the truth behind good or poor reviews. Since we do not sell advertising, we provide unbiased reporting that can be trusted. We accomplish this through secret shopping, product testing, and forming relationships with industry leaders in customer service.
As a watchdog organization, we strive to set industry standards for the consumer. If a business is found to be unethical, members quickly form an action to demand that the business in question is doing the right thing. Through boycotts, press conferences, media, picketing, support lists, and other strategies, we work to bring attention to questionable behavior to demand that all cannabis businesses are operating in a manner that puts the consumer first. Ultimately, it is our expressed desire that the cannabis industry grows to be a model that others will follow, and that the consumers are the ones responsible for setting industry standards.
