Licensing your new cannabis business can seem like a daunting task. Whether you are a cultivator, processor, or dispensary, cannabis licensing is a complicated process.

Let our staff help you get licensed, stay licensed, and focus on the rest of your business.


Cannabis licensing varies state to state, but the basic concepts are mostly the same. Licensing a new establishment breaks down into the following steps:

  1. Gather the regulations and build a checklist
  2. Work with your staff to develop required policies and procedures. Common policies include loss prevention, staff training, hiring protocols, waste disposal, security and seed to sale tracking.
  3. Source compliance vendors as needed. Common needs are security, camera systems, fire suppression, packaging, product testing and staff training.
  4. Apply for your license.
  5. Keep you compliant: manage required filings, verify systems, conduct internal audits and work with staff to develop best practices.
