High Ethical Standards

We know how hard you work to be ethically-minded and elevate the cannabis industry. Our team is committed to the same objectives, and we are highly involved in cannabis advocacy. These values carry over to how we do business. We’re committed to honesty and transparency; it’s built into everything we do. (And since we’ve grown exponentially by word of mouth alone, it seems our clients appreciate it…)

We won’t try to upsell unnecessary services or provide dishonest metrics – some firms will try to sell you on things like crisis communications, but you won’t find that nonsense at NISONCO. Our retainer includes all of our PR services and we offer the ability to bundle additional services that complement our PR offerings. We also have an all-remote team that hustles until the job is done; without the constraints of an office, we’re able to start our work day on the east coast and end it on the west coast.

We’ve been in cannabis PR since 2013, making us one of the first cannabis-specific firms out there. We know what we’re doing, and we get palpable results. Many agencies lean on a slew of ambiguous metrics, but we get you published in outlets that make an impact. We ensure clients benefit from coverage to elevate the profiles of industry leaders. We’re experts in pitching and managing relationships, but we also receive a number of inbound requests from journalists every day.
