Trick Or Treat Yourself To Budrisk's October Update

The team at Budrisk has been working hard and playing hard, celebrating birthdays for two of our VIPs, Art and Elizabeth, and onboarding a new key player, Taylor Loud. We’re also excited to see our client Lowkey launch their first retail location in Dorchester this month. We collaborate with newly launching clients like Lowkey to manage risk but also to help network and promote our clients at launch as well as throughout their business lifecycle.

As the holidays approach, clients like Beachgrass Topicals in Wareham are ramping up to meet the high demand for stuffing gift baskets. Beachgrass is a manufacturer of some pretty unique cannabis products like infused lotion bars and salve, some Budrisk favorites going into the autumn weather. The leadership teams at organizations like Beachgrass and Lowkey have worked tirelessly to get to this part of their journey, and Budrisk is proud to be in partnership with them as we help guide their risk management strategy.

Retailers like Lowkey and manufacturers like Beachgrass typically need help from Budrisk to help source cost competitive and coverage comprehensive insurance solutions including Workers Compensation, General Liability, Product Liability, and Property Coverage. Our risk management specialists also meet with operators to review workplace safety, hiring and employment practices, loss control, and safe driver training. Our agency provides the cannabis industry a lifeline to guide through regulations and protect businesses as they prepare to launch and continue to grow. We’ve grown with our clients and partners, and our roadmap approach has proven to be an invaluable resource for operators throughout the US. We have many events coming up and look forward to seeing you all in Boston, Detroit, New York, Las Vegas in the coming months. If you are in one of these cities or are also planning to attend the events, please reach out and connect with us so we can link up with you while we’re on the road. Enjoy the harvest, thanks for your support, and Happy Halloween!


Introducing our client and partner BeachGrass Topicals!

Founded by Jeanine MacKenzie in 2019, BeachGrass Topicals is a woman-owned and women-led wholesale product manufacturer of THC and CBD-infused topical products.

BeachGrass Topicals was founded on Jeanine’s personal positive experience with cannabis-infused topicals. Already a medical dispensary patient, she tried a THC-infused topical product which delivered far superior relief than anything she had tried. As Jeanine purchased infused topicals more regularly, she noticed a lack of products that were made with organic or skin-friendly ingredients so she started making her own 100% organic topicals products. BeachGrass Topicals’ mission is to enhance the cannabis-infused topicals experience by creating skin-loving topicals made with only the highest quality, thoughtfully sourced 100% organic ingredients.

BeachGrass Topicals is located in Wareham, MA, the gateway to Cape Cod, which is where Jeanine was born and raised. She is thrilled to be able to manufacture a product she believes in passionately right in her hometown. Jeanine and the whole BeachGrass team couldn’t be happier to be a part of the community!
