According to research firm New Frontier Data, the yearly sales of cannabis in the United States are expected to reach $72 billion by 2030. As of April 2023, 38 states permit the use of cannabis for medical purposes, while 22 states have passed legislation regulating the use of cannabis for adult recreational use.

New markets continue to open up as cannabis legalization movements spread to new states and some members of Congress call for reform and perhaps federal legalization. There is no better time to get involved to become part of the cannabis industry than now.

Where Do You Start?

The cannabis industry is relatively new, and as such, it comes with a unique set of challenges that can make it difficult for businesses to succeed. When you are doing your research to determine where to start and how, it can be overwhelming. Typically, we find that most of the confusion comes from the following general questions:

  • How much money do I need to start a cannabis business? How can I fund my business?
  • Which type of cannabis business can I start?
  • How do I beat competition to win a license?
  • When will licensure become available in my state, and how can I be prepared?
  • Do I have the knowledge to start a business or will I need to seek out partners? Where do I find those partners?

If you are trying to determine where to start and the requirements of making your dream a reality, Cannaspire can help you. We do this through a 45-minute consultation call where we will help you understand your next steps and make smart decisions. Topics such as qualifications, requirements, licensing, legal and real estate needs and more will be discussed during the call, covering all of the topics to help you obtain the right information.

Understanding how to qualify and win a cannabis license

It is not as important to have the knowledge regarding how to apply as it is to be prepared with the components to win a license, as there are many businesses that apply for licenses, so you will need to outscore the competition. Your application score can depend on many factors, including but not limited to:

  • The quality and skillsets of the members of your team
  • Your business plan
  • Your security plan
  • Your regulatory compliance strategy
  • Social equity status and other factors

Cannaspire can help you with the entire process of successfully winning a license or a specific component that you need assistance with.

Cannabis Security Plans

The success of a cannabis business relies heavily on having a well-planned security system in place. Security compliance is critical as it accounts for a significant portion of the points received on the application, and inadequate security can attract violent crime and the illegal distribution of products. Having a professional security plan can increase the chances of obtaining a license and can prevent losses due to non-refundable application fees. Cannaspire’s security consultants and experts can help you create effective security plans that comply with regulations and reduce the risk of criminal activities.
