The Shango Las Vegas dispensary and all five Oregon locations will be selling co-branded clothing in pink and black to raise money for existing national program support. Shango Premium Cannabis will be donating 50 percent of net proceeds of sales in each state. Retail pricing ranges from $15 to $26 for hats, T-shirts, socks and beanies. “Breast Friends’ mission is helping women survive the trauma of cancer one friend at a time,” said Allison Hancock, event and volunteer coordinator for the Oregon chapter of Breast Friends. “We are thankful for the support that Shango is giving to Breast Friends to raise awareness and help us continue to offer services and programs to women who are going through the cancer journey.” Breast Friends is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for female cancer patients. The organization teaches friends and family specific ways to offer support, helps them understand what their loved one is going through, and suggests resources for the woman and for those who care about her. A number of programs developed by Breast Friends have proven valuable in assisting and reassuring the patient, her friends and family. Breast Friends believes that no woman should go through the cancer experience alone. Unfortunately, it happens. Women with friends and family nearby often fail to receive the kind of emotional, spiritual or physical support they need. Breast Friends programs are designed to ensure proper support is given and received. Every woman in America will be touched by breast cancer or other women’s cancers in her lifetime. One in eight women will be diagnosed, and the other seven will know her. The goal is to reach the seven in order to help the one. Breast Friends’ governing body is made up of a national board including the two co-founders, executive officers, and board members who also oversee the Oregon Affiliate. The group also has Local Advisory Boards in each affiliate location. Breast Friends was founded in Oregon in 2000, the first of many affiliates. The group has helped thousands of local patients and their families and is the testing ground for all Breast Friends programs. The Oregon affiliate has a prosthesis, bra and wig closet and offers products free to women who have little or no funds available to purchase them. Shango will sell the pink and black merchandise at all five retail Oregon dispensary locations. Shango Forest Grove, Shango Hillsboro, Shango Harold, Shango Win Sivers and Shango Molalla dispensaries are participating in the fundraising drive. Those locations also can accept checks made out to Breast Friends. Shango also teamed up with My Hope Chest, a national breast cancer charity that pays for reconstructive surgery, to help raise funds in their home state of Nevada. “This is an amazing opportunity for Shango to be able to help out two regional charities with the foresight to recognize the potential benefits of medical cannabis for both pre- and post-surgery situations,” said Julie Dubocq, Controller at Shango. “We admire their courage.” My Hope Chest was founded by Alisa Savoretti in the fall of 2003 in Nevada. A breast cancer survivor and Las Vegas showgirl, she was 38 and without insurance at the time of her diagnosis. Following a mastectomy and only five months after finishing her chemotherapy, Alisa returned to the Las Vegas stage and her career as a professional dancer – this time however, minus one breast. Billing herself as the “Lopsided Showgirl,” she shared her personal story and plans for an organization as a result of it, gaining media attention through a news story on the local CBS affiliate. Alisa had to wait nearly three years to acquire her own reconstruction. She discovered a huge gap in treatment that existed for uninsured women suffering from a mastectomy. “This is a new adventure for My Hope Chest with Shango,” Savoretti said. “We understand and support that the healing powers of medicinal cannabis and the benefits in the areas of glaucoma prevention and treatment, epileptic seizures and PTSD have been proven very real.  As a charity that helps women affected by breast cancer, we look forward to the support of Shango Premium Cannabis and are excited to see the future of our charitable partnership.” With the help of members of the NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners), My Hope Chest was formed and became a 501c3 in December of 2003, and is the only national breast reconstruction organization working to help uninsured and under-insured women heal completely. “I realized how my own self-esteem, confidence and self-worth as a woman returned when I could look in the mirror and see my whole ‘physical’ being once again. It was my healing restoration in body mind and spirit,” Savoretti said. Shango will sell the pink and black merchandise in the dispensary at 4380 Boulder Highway in Las Vegas. Checks also can be donated and made out to My Hope Chest. About Shango Shango has cultivation, extraction and production facilities in Oregon, Nevada and Washington.

The Shango team have an impressive history spanning over 6 years in building and integrating telecoms and web backend systems. They built the back-end-as-a-service platform business that One Source Networks’ bought last year, and the team have spent over two years building their new platform that bridges the telephone network and the web. The good old telephone network is one of the platforms we communicate on the most, but all the stuff that happens there remains frustratingly trapped in silos or ephemeral. This should not be the case as telephony is one of the few communication networks that do not need to reside in a silo. Whatsapp, WeChat, LINE, etc. all keep their users in their silo as their business model is based on attention, hence being closed is key to retaining attention. A Telco’s business model is different, the customer pays. Put simply, all your calls, texts, voicemails and even your phone number are ‘trapped’ in the phone network. Shango sets them free so you can do lots of cool stuff with one simple Action. The screen shot below shows some of Shango’s Actions. And at the end of this weblog is a longer list of use cases made possible. Its easy to see how Shango Actions could be part of the “myTelco” app most operators have deployed. Making it easy for customers to add services and personalize their communications experience. The telephony network has unique capabilities, its in the call path, so its sees all the communications content. Which means it works for any device or end-point, that is its device independent. Most internet-based communication services are peer to peer, which limits the service’s access to the content of communications, even for messaging synchronization between the same client across your devices can be hit and miss. The phone number is quite a useful identity, most internet-based communication services use the telephone number identity today. And its an identity linked to a way to pay thanks to carrier billing. There’s gold to be mined from the telephone network. Given this potential, why hasn’t it been extensively mined already? At this point I’ll avoid getting into a rant on IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), RCS (Rich Communications Suite), dumbass telco billing fees (some still say revenue share, argh!), self–focused thinking on APIs and CRM (myTelco) apps, and a host of other issues that have wasted a decade. But back to the focus of this weblog, Shango provides BOTH the services through their service partners AND the glue between services on the web and in the telco’s network. With the necessary adaptors to the network, business support systems, and myTelco app; which is Shango’s pedigree. The key is to understand the category of problems Shango solves: linking services on the telephone network and the web, and solving the integration issues between them as a neutral third party, as shown below. Shango are currently in trials across 12 countries. With a very simple opening proposition of keeping telecommunications relevant in today’s web-centric world, an interesting way to enable some simple bundling of web-based and new communication services, and doing it in an easy way for customers to Action. The impact of linking the communications content, triggers and phone number with the web opens up a surprisingly large number of use cases, some of which are listed below. This taxonomy is divided into 2 main group, linking the core telephony services with web services (group 1), keeping telephony relevant in today’s web-centric world; and linking the telephone number (carrier billing) to new communication and web-based services (group 2), driving new revenues. Group 1 is further broken into communications content related services, as the telephone network is uniquely in the call path; and communications triggered events. Group 2 is divided between new communication services and web-based service bundles, which now become just a click away with Shango’s Actions. The Shango team will be at MWC, click here to book a meeting.


Owners of the Portland-based medical marijuana business, Shango, today announced that Brandon Rexroad has officially been named the Executive Vice President of Operations. Brandon assumes this critical position one month before the consumption of recreational marijuana is legal in the state of Oregon.

My partner and I founded Shango to be an example of excellence in our industry, and we must be sure every facet of Shango’s operations, cultivation and retail reflects this vision prior to January 2016.” Brandon has been dedicated to the emerging Cannabis Industry since 1996 when California permitted the production and sale of medicinal cannabis.
