How Botani Gummed Wrappers Take Blunt Rolling Next Level
Grassroots Marketing discusses how How Botani Gummed Wrappers Take Blunt Rolling Next Level with Managing Director Alex Boone.
Until now, single-use foil packaging has been the go-to solution for blunt wraps. Without it, most blunt wraps will dry out. (Or so, you would think…)
But what if you could get rid of the foil? What if cannabis brands could provide blunt wraps that were gummed, and/or in a booklet, like how you can purchase joint papers?
Enter Botani: a 400-year paper pioneer with a history of leading innovation in tobacco paper product manufacturing. Today, Botani introduced its new Gummed wraps -- a revolutionary and cost-effective alternative to traditional foil wrapped blunt papers. Designed to help roll-your-own tobacco brands make a seamless entrance into the cannabis market without adding costly new machinery or storage solutions, Botani gummed wrappers take blunt rolling to the next level.

Nuvata and Their Live Resin Disposable Vaporizers
Grassroots Marketing highlights Nuvata and Their Live Resin Disposable Vaporizers with Andy Singh, founder and CEO of Nuvata.
Live resin is a cannabis concentrate that’s extracted from fresh, frozen cannabis plants, preserving its sensitive cannabinoids and proteins. But when it comes to marketing and branding, there is a lot of misleading terminology in the concentrates market and the products just aren’t worth their premium price.
To help with viscosity, some live resin manufacturers add distillate, which only contains THC. Because Nuvata uses 100% live resin, it is better at providing consumers with a balanced effect instead of just providing a flavored THC buzz. It’s the closest thing you’ll get to smoking a joint.
Andy is of Indian descent, but was born in Bangkok then moved to LA at 6 months old. As a child, his family moved back to Bangkok for business and moved back to LA as a young adult. Straight out of college, Andy began his successful entrepreneurial journey and challenged himself by stretching his professional limits and acquiring a logistics business and growing it to become a multi-million dollar business within a 2-year span. After a successful exit, he took his knowledge of compliance, operational systems and strategies into the cannabis industry. In addition to founding Nuvata and thriving in new markets, he’s built a unique cannabis real-estate incubator for operators to bring automatic value by following his strategic formula that’s focused on buying real estate, obtaining licenses and more.
