024: Creating a Premium Psychedelic Cannabis Brand with Libby Cooper

In one sense, the cannabis industry is like any other: when you identify a gap in the market, there’s an opportunity to achieve success by filling it. Space Coyote’s high quality pre-rolls, available all over California, do just that. Today’s guest, co-founder Libby Cooper, has helped to create a truly unique brand that marries the highest-quality flower with well-established branded extracts. In just a few years, she has built an impressive company and created a curated, top-shelf cannabis experience for her many fans. In this episode, Libby shares the story of how she built a premium company and a high-end category on her terms in just a few short years, the changing perception of adult-use cannabis usage, and how Space Coyote’s marketing has adapted in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. KEY TAKEAWAYS How Libby “came out” as a cannabis user to her friends and family. Why Libby and her co-founder Scott alternate their titles of President and CEO annually - and how they delegate who handles what while maintaining a balance of power. The importance of destigmatizing the word “stoner” - and why Libby’s brand is all about celebrating the psychedelic cannabis experience. How Space Coyote’s branding changes every time the company enters a new state. The many different flavors and experiences that can be created in cannabis pre-rolls - and why Space Coyote’s prerolls are the equivalent of farmer’s market fresh tomatoes. Why Libby is optimistic we’ll see federal legalization within the next four years.
