Digital Marketing Manager
Canada’s existing federal medical cannabis program is the most sophisticated and advanced in the world, and with a government that has pledged to put forth legislation legalizing cannabis for recreational use this spring, Canada is poised to be the largest federally-regulated system and will set the global standard for all other nations to follow - and Lift (www.lift.co) is positioned at the centre of it all.
While access to cannabis has never been greater, confusion abounds for consumers looking to determine if (a) cannabis is right for them; and (b) which product in particular will best satisfy their needs. Founded in 2014, Lift has quickly become Canada’s leading resource for cannabis education and product information. By utilizing the right mix of media and technology solutions, Lift creates informed cannabis consumers and equips them with the confidence to make the best purchase decisions for their needs.
