Portrait Sebastián Marincolo

Cannabis Expertise and Creativity for Companies

I offer highly specialized and well-founded advice to established and new companies in the rapidly emerging German cannabis sector.

My range of international experience is based, among other things, on my more than 20 years of expertise as a consciousness researcher and publicist of four non-fiction books on the psychoactivity of cannabis. Also, I worked as Director of Communications and Marketing for one of the largest cannabis companies in the world.

In an international context, I advise companies and executives seeking a special perspective and new impulses to help them to become outstanding innovators and disruptors. I am focusing on companies with truly sincere business ethics and have a large network of exceptional experts in the fields of THC-containing cannabis, medical cannabis & cannabinoids, CBD, hemp, brand design, brand strategy, communication and marketing.

In the turbulent cannabis world, it is crucial to build a strong and authentically communicating brand and develop effective communication strategies. My academic background in philosophy of consciousness and cognitive science helps me to develop strategies to get people to rethink despite the high stigmatization of the topic. Based on my many years of experience as a creative director and photographer, I have developed my own internationally recognized visual language on the subject in order to communicate more effectively.

With unusual essays and in numerous interviews and podcasts, I have repeatedly spoken out against the prohibition of cannabis with great media response and thus helped drive developments for a more rational policy.

My deep understanding of cannabis and the industry allows me to develop customized solutions to enrich and authentically communicate my clients’ identity and vision. Whether it’s launching a new business, solidifying the brand, or exploring new strategies or communication channels, I bring the creativity and expertise to guide my clients to long-term success.

“Nobody has ever broken down the nuances of cannabis psychoactivity quite like Sebastián Marincolo in what he calls a ‘bouquet of cognitive effects and enhancements.’”
