A Strategic Path to Success

As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, it’s becoming more and more clear that new businesses have needs beyond what the franchise consultancy model can offer them.  While many consulting firms have been started by groups who formed their own cannabis business and set out to replicate it time and time again, we’re going further.

Our goal isn’t to take a single success from one grow/dispensary in one state, and repeat it in yours. Let’s take advantage of the best the arena has to offer from multiple facilities across multiple states, making each new business competitive with the way the industry has grown and changed, and will continue to do so.

Organization and Focus
You're looking to us to guide you through the process and keeps things on track. So while every state seems to have had their own governmental hiccups along the way, we'll manage your expectations so you're never left wondering what should be happening next.
Cannabis Specialization
Every member of our team has cannabis-specific experience. We're lucky enough to work with some of the best experts in the field, and have access to an even larger network of cannabis advisors who bring expertise from multiple states.
Experienced Regulatory Partners
Our team brings compliance expertise, thanks to the involvement of ex-state regulators who know state licensure approval processes and regulations inside and out, and know what a winning application looks like.
Legal Expertise for Applications
The subtle nuances of the application process are best overseen by someone who truly understands the law. One of our Co-founders and application writers owns a private law firm in NY, and our T's are crossed and I's are dotted without exception.

You only get one opportunity to establish yourself in each state. There's simply no room for error in the application process, and we understand that. Each state is different, and every business has to do something better than everyone else to forge their way.

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have made a relatively last minute decision to attend the CannMed seminar at Harvard’s Med Campus this year. It was nothing short of a motivational mind-blow in terms of the scientific genius that is propelling this industry forward.
