APPROVAL OR REJECTION OF AFFILIATE PROGRAM APPLICATION
We reserve the right to approve or reject ANYONE from entering this Program in its sole and absolute discretion. This clause is in place to protect our group, our CannaPartners, and our all future opportunities.
After your initial on boarding fee has been received, you are only responsible for the expenses associated with running your own independent business. This is usually limited to business cards, website hosting fees, and any expenses related to travel to industry events, etc., should you decide to do so. The Recipient will be fully responsible for all costs and expenses of maintaining and marketing their business.
We will build and provide you with a consultant website for you. You will own and manage that site yourself. It is built in a widely used and easy to operate website builder.
NO REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING INCOME POTENTIAL
The Owner makes no representations and warranties regarding potential income that may result from participation in this program. Simply put, this is your business and you can do with it as you see fit. Some may excel with these new relationships and some won’t likely get beyond logging in and looking around. We get that you didn’t join to have an employer and while we are here for you and to help you in many ways, ultimately this is your business and your efforts are the driving force. Again, we are here and eager to help and answer any questions, that you have, but ultimately, this is your new business.
We will provide you with contact information, sales sheets, links, banners, and all other needed information to be used to equip you with resources. These materials will include content designed specifically for the purpose of educating the Consultant about the host of products and services they can offer nationally.
You agree to not modify the links or other materials that the CannaPartners provided to you. The CannaPartners are relying on you to find interested parties and briefly and accurately explain what services they provide. They will provide you with an overview of their offerings and give you sales materials to use. Proprietary information and materials can’t be modified or shared without their permission.
CBC Logo and CBC Certified Cannabis Consultant badge usage is encouraged, but you’ll need to name your own consulting firm in order to do business. We are happy to assist in this process, so please talk with us about this during your start up. Once you’ve completed the minimum training required (we are all still learning as the landscape is still developing!) you’ll receive your Certification Badge to use in your emails, website, etc. Please note that you are opening your own independent consulting firm and using the CBC as a valuable resource, but ultimately this business is yours completely.
All of our CannaParters have existing referral agreements in place and should be requested using the Request Referral Agreement button on their CannaPartner listing page on our support site. Should you want to refer someone to that CannaPartner, you will need to execute a direct agreement with them. The CBC does not participate in your earnings—they are all yours and while we’ll feel a sense of pride in your success, it is yours, which is why you’ll have your own agreements with the CannaPartners.
Ongoing Support From the CBC, inclusion in training events, shows, etc.
Your program was designed specifically to get you in front of like-minded cannabis industry professionals-The CannaPartners. The CannaPartners are eager to tell you about what they do, how they do it, and how to position them to your clients. They are your best resource for real-time information and help. They WANT you to be successful in referring clients to them. As a Cannabis Consultant, you’ll need to embrace their help as we know that it will make you more successful. And please value their time as much as they value yours! These are the people who’ll ultimately help you the most! Good thing they are eager to do so!
As part of your onboarding The CBC has contracted with 3rd-party cannabis industry training companies to provide Consultants detailed training on specific areas that Cannabis Consultants should have a general knowledge of. Many consultants will focus on a specific areas and become true experts in a chosen field—you might do so as well—but our goal in year 1 for you is to get you connected with and presenting the solutions provided by your CannaPartners.
Commissions/referral fees paid to you by CannaPartners are between them and you, the Cannabis Consultant. The CBC does NOT participate in your earnings. You will be paid as stipulated in the Referral Agreement provided to you by the CannaPartner. We are proud to bring you these direct resources with an abundance of training and support along the way, but ultimately, the CannaPartner will operate under their published agreement without The CBC being involved in your payment for a successful referral.
Commissions and referrals fees will be paid to the you as stipulated in the CannaPartner’s Referral Agreement that is posted on the support site. Again, that agreement should be executed by you before you send a quality referral to the CannaPartner.
