@ctwilliams What's the domain?
I seriously had one guy told me my peace symbol might be excellent for the pot industry. Never even crossed my mind!
I think they need some Emergency Releaf
Poor planning on their part. Seems silly to open if you don't have the supply to meet the demand. Especially in the beginning, as it holds a larger percentage of fad, newness, and inflated pricing, most of which should dissipate in the coming months.
These new states reaching go-live between now and 2018 should take a page from CO, WA, etc; so as not to make the same mistakes, IMO.
What are your thoughts on WeedUSA?
I have it in .net, .co, .us, xyz.
Nice keywords, poor extensions.
.com WOULD be better; however it is being used for hemp tennis racquets.
I just bought 24 last 2 days obviously my opinion is YES!
JamaicaMarijuana.com 1,500 USD
Sedo (not my sale)
...truly a bargain!...
The game hasn't even started for a domain sale, short of a re sale amongst brokers, a few nice glimpses of the future market but that's all . The Nevada end users, stores and growers etc are just putting in their applications now.
The existing monopolistic few in Nevada ( 50 +/-) that had existing mmj..permits were allowed to sell recreational. The thousands of applicants as of July 01st were allowed to apply. This is our future. These will be in place in 2018. So again expect a noticeable surge, as in the other states in the late Fall to 2018 winter.
Hundreds of thousands of new cannabis dreamers will be vying for the market share. They will need and compete for the quality we all own. Quality, .com, seo...two words max, heavy to canna, leaf, and fun pot names, as well as well thought out brandables...that will take quality sales work to sell.
They will all be branding in a competitive market place. I devided...the state's up. Don't waste your time on Ohio for example, 20 permitted growers and retail monopolys issues. Florida 10.
California July 2018 stores open
Massachussets July 2018 stores open
Michigan June 2018 stores expand
( liberal medical with ballot initiative Fall, same system , unlimited everything)
New Hampshire May 2018
Vermont?? July 2018 possibly. Big if.
Note monopolistic states don't need to brand. Or drop $5000 on $9 domains, Not to mention 10 new entitys in all of Florida for example . One would hope that if your awarded a monopolistic Willy Wonka golden ticket you'd fork out for a great domain, but that's for true top tier quality
Few if any are left for hand registrars. I watch this closely. So the idea of anyone anymore buying decent inventory is over. Retail store owner on down.
I only focus on Cannabis domains. And am on the equipment side of the industry.
Monopolistic States ( some )
It's all about volume and competing stores, growers and branding for us.
It's a good bet to hold and position and develop marketing for going retail on domains. Well that's what I'm doing . The Fall is near.
I have a few. Interested in hearing some thoughts on these .com's...
TiendaMota (Spanish for "Weed Store" more or less.)
Final agreement in compromise bill is a done deal. It's very good for us, very.
Full recreational rollout, July 2018.
Taxes from %12 to %20
Still under Colorado and most states that approved Cannabis. Their at about 28%.
From unlimited to only unlimited in counties and cities that passed the referendum, including Boston. It's %72 of the amount of cities and towns. The other 28% can limit or ban such stores and growers.
Growers, producers, transporters
Unknown at this time the amount .
There is substantial limitations on usage of words in advertising. Expect limitations on certain words and usage of cartoon characters in marketing. No limits on edibles short of no marketing twords children.
5 person board controls the new department. It's independent of other regulatory arenas such as tobacco and alcohol.
Game on, this is volume . And a complete requirement to market and advertise. Most all new people in this will be looking for good .com, the market will dictate competition .
You may run into issues as MJpay.com is established.
Nice sale, not sure if its Cannabis related though
Sold a Tennessee domain yesterday for $250. It was a < $2 hand reg.
I'm not sure what the status is in Tennessee for legalization.
Hashbrownies dot ca
2,000$ usd via Sedo
Had a hard time letting this go as it will be an instant business post legalization.
A bird in the hand...
Congrats on the sale. Here's to many more.
Sold 420//Gurus//com. $1200
