Cannabis is a unique product. What you don’t know is precisely the thing that will come back to haunt you.

Not totally confident about how to comply with local and national regulations? We’ll help you sort it all out. Want to be more efficient as you expand your operations? We’ll make sure you’re using best practices. Trying to figure out how your dispensary can better serve medical marijuana patients? We’ll help you elevate your standard of care.

We’ve managed major projects including grows exceeding 100,000 square feet, retail operations with locations in multiple states, online businesses serving an entire nation, and companies with multiple currency needs. Whether this is your first foray into the cannabiz industry, or you’re looking to expand your business, work alongside cannabis consultants who know how to set up successful marijuana operations at scale.

Data matters: The art and science behind our proven cannabis consulting

It’s one thing to look at data sets, it’s another thing to spot the opportunity that the data is trying to tell you. In a market facing explosive growth and massive profit potential, it’s no longer enough to base decisions on hunches or gut feelings. You need advice and direction from marijuana consultants who know how to turn information into power.

Big data tells you everything you need to know about your business and the market. Smart data helps you use that knowledge to make powerful decisions. We know what data you should be collecting–and we even have our own user-friendly tools to help you capture it. Once you have built up a treasure trove of information unique to your company, our cannabis consultants help you interpret the message it’s trying to send.

We also compare your stats to our own massive set of industry-wide data to spot areas where you’re smashing the competition and uncover gaps in the marketplace you’re set to fill. By fusing cold, hard facts with combined decades of practical experience in the cannabis industry, our consultants help you think more strategically and creatively about your organization.

New license? No problem.

Breaking into the cannabis industry can be scary. Not only do you have to manage all the details of getting your recreational or medical marijuana operation up and running, you have to keep in mind the myriad restrictions and requirements in place for an industry where every move is closely watched by regulators. Competition for grow, manufacturing, or dispensary licensing is steep. In many states, getting a second chance can be expensive and take years. We help you get it right the first time.

Here’s how our seed-to-sale cannabis consultants can help you start off on the right foot as you launch your marijuana or hemp empire.

Location

Location, location, location

One you determine the state, county, or jurisdiction you want to start your cannabis business, we outline the unique requirements for your location and business vertical (cultivation, manufacturing, or retail). Our cannabis consultants make sure you’re aware of the information you’ll be required to supply, the schedule you need to follow, and the forms you’ll be asked to submit. We’ll show you how to navigate the licensing maze without getting lost.

Freelunch

There’s no such thing as a free launch

You’ll need a realistic picture about exactly what it will cost to not only become operational, but to actually turn a profit after your cannabis company gets off the ground. By evaluating some of the major costs associated with a cannabis business (like real estate, energy consumption, and staffing), we can help you understand the level of investment and revenue you’ll need to generate to turn a profit on your business.

Buildbrand

Build a brand that’s here for the long haul

As more and more canna-businesses pop up, competition is getting fierce, fast. Setting your brand apart from competitors is not only good professional practice—it will be vital if you want to eventually grow your operations or build stronger relationships with your clients. Our team of savvy cannabis consultants help you identify gaps in the marketplace and strengthen your brand message so you can show your customers why you’re awesome.

Nutbolt

The nuts and bolts of running a canna-business

What is your current level of overall business experience? Have you ever been in the cannabis industry before? You don’t have to know everything, but it’s smart to at least know what you don’t know. Turn your business plan over to our cannabis consultants to review with a fine-toothed comb. We’ll show you the areas where your strategy is strong and reveal gaps where you could use some additional support. From there, we either provide those services for you or connect you to the right tools and resources.

Grown

Here today, grown tomorrow

As the industry goes mainstream, opportunities for expansion will keep coming up. If you don’t have a plan for the future of your company—in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years and beyond—you won’t know which are the right opportunities to jump on and which you should just let pass. We’ll start by working with you to define what success means to you. Then we’ll help you set goals, establish timelines, and capture the metrics that show you the current health of your organization. Starting off smart will help you stay on track to achieving your ultimate objectives.

Learning curves are costly. We’ll make sure you don’t get stuck paying the price.

There’s no MBA program for running recreational or medical marijuana companies (yet), so finding accurate information on how to successfully launch or scale a cannabis business can be difficult. We’ve been in this industry day-in and day-out for decades and we’re committed to providing advice, insight, and education to cannabis proprietors who are serious about running successful cultivation operations, manufacturing businesses, delivery services, and dispensaries.
