Like most other successful businesses, there are some bumps in the road to getting Grassp into the hands of patients who could been fit from their services. They found that some people did not support them due to the type of industry they were going into and to the lack of valid information or education on the industry and the medicinal benefit.
In addition, it took them a year to get the ball rolling because they were learning the legal framework. They took a legal, moral, and ethical stand in deploying their delivery technology which at the time which made it more difficult to compete with those that have illegal or unlicensed delivery services.

Moebius and Johnson believe that with education, presentation, and resolving the sometimes uncomfortable process of obtaining cannabis legally, the people who doubted them and more will begin to change their minds about cannabis. They believe that in order to move beyond the negative stigma, they need to understand the outdated terminology and imagery that holds the industry back. People need to have open conversations about it and highlight the valid medical benefits of cannabis. Their hypothesis is that people are turning to cannabis because they don’t trust the pharmaceutical companies and cannabis offers them a safer and cleaner alternative to prescription drugs. They believe they will be validated once more scientific information about the positive effects of Cannabis.
CJ Moebius and David Johnson are also optimistic about the future of cannabis businesses. With all the scientifically proven stats about how cannabis is helping with depression, chronic pain, and more, it is offering people a safer alternative than pills. Several states are starting to get onboard with either recreational or medical cannabis programs, and businesses that show scalability under distinct branding will legally lead the way and open more doors. They are focused on expanding Grassp and its service capabilities throughout California and other states that have recreational or medical Cannabis programs.
