Hello beautiful people!
Thank you so much for your continued support and patronage during these increasingly weird/harrowing/alarming/stressful times. Please know that here at Zenganic we're doing our very best to keep both ourselves and you safe. To that end, with increased civil unrest causing curfews across the area, we're shortening our delivery hours and prioritizing existing customers.
With regards to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic: we have enacted strategies and practices in both our offices and delivery vehicles to ensure continued safety. These include, but are not limited to: employees wearing masks in the facility, wiping down touch surfaces regularly (hourly for things like door knobs and key pads) with 99% isopropyl alcohol, changing gloves frequently and sterilizing them between any interactions that involve cash or touching shared items (pens, clipboards, etc). Personally, I change over to an n95 mask when receiving wholesale orders and dealing with people outside of our small pool of employees. We've also limited the number of people in the facility at any given time, and reduced the number of overall shifts to allow for greater social distancing in both the delivery and manufacturing areas. With us being in the manufacturing business, we already have access to all of the required PPE, such as masks, gloves, hazmat suits, etc, and have simply bulked up our orders of such items. (That said, if you're unable to locate any of these items personally, say the word and we'll send along some gloves or a couple disposable masks with your order.)
With regards to the ongoing civil unrest - to put it simply, #BlackLivesMatter (that's your dis.count co.de too, if you're looking for one - and if you've read this far, dope! that code will stay active at %5 in perpetuity, and "stacks" with other discounts when your order is placed through the site. If it doesn't seem to work, just mention it to the dispatcher and they'll apply it manually). We are a (partially) minority owned business, with a very diverse staff, and we wholeheartedly support the movement for racial equity and equality. We unequivocally condemn the continued murder of black and brown people at the hands of police departments and law enforcement as well as other governmental agencies. This is especially the case since we're in the cannabis business, which has long history replete with selective enforcement, unequal sentences, and widespread abuses. The very laws that made cannabis illegal in the first place were created to criminalize black and brown people and many millions of us have been unjustly incarcerated over the decades of cannabis prohibition. The legal side of the industry is better, but not as much so as you may think. Oakland, where we're based, has one of the best "Equity" programs in the country, but it's woefully inadequate. It's far more than nothing - and far less than it needs to be. With things as they are right now, we're prioritizing employee safety and may have shorter hours and nudge towards preordering for the following day (we'll give a discount for that). We may also be more selective with serving new customers
Keep an eye on this space. We'll be having sales, this is where you'll find discount codes and all kinds of other good stuff. We also have product reviews coming, and will be announcing new drops as they arrive.
Be well. Be safe. Be good to one another. Seek joy.
