If you’re fortunate enough to live in a state where cannabis is legal, you’ve probably heard of O.penVAPE, the premium cannabis vaporizer ‘pen’ launched in 2010. The product that started it all has since grown to become Organa Brands, a nationally recognized distributor and house of cannabis brands!
VARIETY OF PRODUCTS
The Organa Brands umbrella covers a portfolio of multiple brands: O.penVAPE; Bakked, a dabbing brand that includes a “dabartatus” all-in-one dabbing tool, cartridges, and distillates; Magic Buzz, cannabis beverages infused with whole-leaf extracts and herbal infusions; and District Edibles, gummy cannabis edibles that come in a variety of flavors.
Organa Labs is another branch that is responsible for the extraction, refinement, and distillation of all of their cannabis brands. This is the longest-running CO₂ extraction facility in the country!
They process cannabis extracts using supercritical CO₂ extraction and produce the high-quality oils infused into many of the Organa Brands products. (You can read more about this process on the Organa Labs website.)
Organa Brands is guided by the core values of creating accessible, dependable, and consistent experiences that enrich that lives of consumers. All branches adhere to a meticulous code of standards and ethics in order to uphold these values.
Jackson Tilley, Director of Public Relations and Community Affairs, describes the company culture as a big family.
“It sounds corny, but we all work daily to lift one another up, and help each other to meet our goals both inside and outside the office,” he says. “Collectively, there’s nothing we can’t do.”
If it’s not the comfortable offices and plethora of snacks that draws employees in, it’s the can-do attitude of a company who hopes to blast the “archaic notion” of what a cannabis company should look like.
“We support good mistakes and enable our employees to learn from past experiences and enhance their work flow in the future,” Tilley says.
The interview process for a potential hire varies with each role.
Regardless of the role, Organa looks for candidate who are a great cultural fit. For that reason, interview questions focus heavily on experience as well as getting to know each candidate. Interviewees can expect a rigorous application process in order to to highlight their unique skill set and determind how they’d fit into the company.
“There’s a ton of upward mobility for the right person, so we try to ensure that the people we hire have big aspirations and are comfortable with wearing many hats,” Tilley says.
“Our industry is constantly changing, so we have to work with people who can adapt quickly and easily.”
GOOD TO KNOW
Organa Brands is always on the lookout for their next great hire.
So what’s the number one thing a potential candidate should know about working at Organa? According to Tilley, it isn’t a normal 9 to 5 job. They work long hours and are one big group of friends.
“We offer great perks and an environment of collaboration,
and a real sense of family with shared ownership of results.”
