OAKLAND, Calif.  – The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) and Brainsy Inc. now offer the Cannabis Expert Calling Network (ECN®), a knowledge-sharing platform connecting cannabis-industry experts with individuals online or via paid telephone consultations.

National Cannabis Industry AssociationExperts participating in the launch of the ECN include a who’s-who of cannabis industry veterans and leaders, including many who appeared during NCIA’s Third Annual Cannabis Business Summit and Expo last week in Oakland.

“We’re seeing a huge demand for the exchange of knowledge as so many new people and businesses across the U.S. enter the cannabis industry,” said Aaron Smith, executive director of NCIA. “With the Cannabis Expert Calling Network, advice-seekers can connect with established industry experts in a way that’s simple and clearly structured. It’s a win-win for our members and for anyone looking for cannabis industry expertise.”

The Cannabis ECN features NCIA members who create personalized profiles to showcase their expertise on a range of cannabis topics. Experts can designate their expertise in a variety of categories including:

Industry Introduction
General Consulting,
Compliance and Policy
Advanced Business Practices
Cultivation
Dispensaries

Experts participating in the launch of the ECN include a who’s-who of cannabis industry veterans and leaders, including many who appeared during NCIA’s Third Annual Cannabis Business Summit and Expo last week in Oakland.

Individuals wishing to talk with an ECN member can request a one-on-one phone call with the participating expert. Discussions can range from 15-60 minutes in duration.

“As so many new states open up medical or adult-use cannabis markets, those of us already working in the industry have a huge amount of hard-won experience and knowledge to offer. The Cannabis ECN makes it easy for people to find us and for us to get compensated for sharing our time and expertise,” stated Jaime Lewis, CEO and Founder of Mountain Medicine, a participating expert.

At the core of the Cannabis ECN platform are knowledge-sharing tools including Brainsy’s patented ECN transactional calling platform. Experts also have access to features of the Personal Media ECN, including the ECN InCall® badge which enables experts to monetize their social media presence on other platforms such as Twitter or LinkedIn.

“The rapidly changing landscape and growth in the cannabis industry make it ripe for innovation and entrepreneurs,” stated Brian Christie, Brainsy CEO. “We are pleased to be working with a well-respected and pioneering association such as NCIA to help make knowledge and expertise in the responsible and legitimate cannabis industry more accessible to people across the nation.”

The Cannabis ECN is made possible in part by the generous support of companies such as docGreens, CannaCon, and Dixie Elixirs.
