My name is Tripp Keber, CEO of Dixie Elixirs & Edibles, and I'm delivering the future of cannabis. AMA!
Happy 420 Week Redditors!
Tripp Keber here at the Dixie Brands Inc. Global Headquarters in Denver, Colorado! I am one of the two original founders of Dixie Brands, Inc and Dixie Elixirs & Edibles (http://dixieelixirs.com), Colorado’s premiere licensed marijuana infused products manufacturer (MIPS).
Look out for Dixie coming to a state near your in 2015!
For over 5 years, we have been defining the future of cannabis by providing the world's most delicious, innovative and consistent cannabis infused edibles, topicals, tinctures and sodas. When I'm not thinking about the future vision of Dixie and the industry, I actively support the efforts of the National Cannabis Industry Association, as founding member and current Board Director.
Additionally since 2013, I have served as a Board Member of the Marijuana Policy Project as well as an Advisory Board member of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group in Colorado. Fighting to end our failed prohibition polices and provide safe access to safely regulated cannabis is my passion!
In particular, I am an avid supporter of Dr. Sue Sisley's groundbreaking PTSD research on behalf of veterans.
As you [probably] know, 420 is around the corner and Denver is getting in gear for the biggest cannabis Holiday in the country! Coincident with this incredible weekend, we couldn't be more excited to be re-launching our world famous Elixirs. Cannabis regulations change quickly, and we're all still learning the best way to regulate and administer our emerging industry—thus our l cannabis-infused soda has been off of the shelves since February here in Colorado. Sometimes we have to pivot, as we did with the Elixir bottle but as innovators we chose to rise to occasion and invested in developing the world's first child resistant bottle that holds carbonation and is dosable! I think the most fascinating aspects of this emerging, yet booming industry, is having to constantly think on our feet as we are, what I like to call, a start up in a start up industry. The challenges, and opportunities, are endless. So much so, in fact, that itls often a challenge to stay on target and not get distracted.
I am honored to be part of America’s (and the world’s) next great industry. Ask me Anything…but once I get going it, might be hard to stop. There’s a lot to talk about… Victoria's helping us get started.
Update: Hey guys, we're going to take a small break, but I hope to be back to answer more of your questions. Thank you for your questions so far, and for the opportunity!
