Punit Seth, CEO, Director and Co-Founder of Toast, a forward thinking cannabis brand delivering full-spectrum CBD and some low-dose THC products, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush! Toast’s has made a lot of noise in the nascent cannabis branding space through its mission of delivering microdosed cannabis products that fit a range of users needs so that they can enjoy cannabis socially but also remain in control and dose themselves appropriately.
Anne was again joined by Nick for this sit down with Punit where the three discuss the impetus for launching Toast, how he was able to successfully recruit a former Coca-Cola and AB InBev executive to join his startup team and how he has been able to build a known brand in an industry with strict rules and regulations. In addition, Punit touches on the rise of CBD and whether its just a fad or something that will continue to grow in popularity as well as the capital crunch facing the industry and how his company has been able to weather the storm while others have taken massive hits.
Punit and his team at Toast are some of the most innovative and creative branding experts within the cannabis space and his insights on building and maintaining consumer loyalty is truly fascinating.
So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
