Our cannabis consulting company will quickly and accurately divulge the following business compliance prerequisites any type of marijuana business needs to operate accordingly within the local state.
1) STANDARDS OF GETTING A CANNABIS BUSINESS LICENSE AND PERMIT
Before opening a marijuana business, you’ll need authorization to operate through a cannabis business license and necessary permits. Our cannabis consulting company will help you through the initial application process.
As you apply for a cannabis business license there are several things the local state licensing board will need.
The basic cannabis business license requirements is ensuring your business has the following:
- A well-thought-out business plan.
- A well-written license application.
- Proper documentation authorization.
- An efficient & diligent team (contracts with trusting partners).
A cannabis business license and permit will allow you to do many things, as a business, depending on your local state’s regulation guidelines.
2) IMPLEMENTING STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES (SOPs)
Other than getting cannabis business licenses to permits, it’s important to have SOPs.
Whether you own a dispensary or a grow facility, a standard operating system (SOPs) analyzes and describes every detail in every task performed. SOPs are education and communication-based tools that help operational team members learn a functional process for efficient business growth.

BioTrack is a seed-to-sale tracking system, similar to METRC, in the cannabis industry that helps supports many marijuana businesses. It’s essentially seed to sale software system to analyze cash flow operations.
