What do I need to know before I start?
- Capitalization: Starting a cannabis business is not cheap. Making sure you have the correct amount of capital for your business is crucial to not only survive in the marketplace but is also a factor that the state considers during the licensing process.
- Real Estate: Having real estate is a crucial part of receiving final licensure and getting your doors open. Understanding the viability of your real estate about state and local zoning is extremely important.
- Local Approval: The ability of your business to operate within a local jurisdiction is determined by your local municipality, it is necessary to understand where your business is going to be located and if that municipality allows cannabis businesses to operate in their city.
- Cannabis Experience: Local and State regulators want to make sure that the businesses operating in this highly regulated market are the best fit. Having the correct experience on your team will show your team’s ability to successfully operate this business type.
- Understanding your team’s experience, capital restrictions and the competitive nature of each license type will allow you to make an informed decision on what licensed activities your business is best suited for.
