Cannabis yield is about more than quantity. Plant vigor and the desired prominence of cannabinoids like THC and/or CBD also play a role. If you’re looking to maximize your cannabis yield, you’ll also want to consider the presence of certain terpenes and flavonoids that essentially distinguish an individual strain. With that in mind, a general understanding of seeds and genetics is essential for every cannabis grower. We’ve broken down some of the basics to serve as a growth medium for your eventual success.Continue reading

California Cannabis Consulting
Why Choose us for Cannabis Consulting in California?
So why should you choose Higher Yields Consulting for cannabis consulting in California? We have years of combined experience with the legal marijuana market. HYC was active and present in the first state to legalize so naturally we’ve been through all the regulations and pitfalls that are bound to be obstacles in states with new legalization legislation. Do not trust just anyone with your investment, choose experience, choose results.
California’s new recreational cannabis industry is on track to be the largest market in the United States with an estimated $3.7 billion in sales by the end of 2018. Over 400 licenses were issued on the first day of legalization, and the state is projected to bring in $1.4 billion in tax revenue by 2021.
As the world’s sixth-largest economy, and with a population of over 40 million residents, now is the time to get in on the industry and become established in California’s marketplace.
Competition will undoubtedly by very high as licensed recreational dispensaries and grows begin to roll out across the state – the companies and organizations that will be successful and have longevity will be those that not only stay compliant with California’s cannabis laws, but also differentiate themselves in unique and innovative ways.
With three separate state agencies regulating the cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, testing, retail sales, and micro-business compliance, navigating California’s legal cannabis framework can be a bit of a maze.
CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing (CalCannabis) is part of the California Department of Food and Agriculture and regulates cultivation. The Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch (MCSB) is part of the California Department of Public Health and regulates the manufacture of cannabis. The Bureau of Cannabis Control (Bureau) is part of the California Department of Consumer Affairs and oversees the distribution, testing, retail sales, and microbusiness compliance.
Additionally, there are over 17 license categories depending on the type of business, along with an arduous application process. This may all seem like a headache, especially for already well established grows operating behind the scenes yet, thankfully, California is undergoing a legislative effort to bring the existing cannabis industry under regulation and above board.
Again, the businesses that will succeed in this industry are those that comply with the new laws and regulations established by the state.
Getting started in California’s cannabis industry means a lot of time, money, and paperwork. For example, applying for a license not only comes with a hefty fee (depending on the type of operation), but also requires evidence of a surety bond, evidence of enrollment with the applicable regional or state water board, evidence of a hazardous materials record search, identifying all power sources for cultivation activities, a property diagram, a proposed cultivation plan and, last but not least, arranging financial services and banking.
At Higher Yields Consulting, our team of experienced professionals can handle the process from A to Z. We’ve worked with established business who want to remain compliant, and helped new owners get off the ground running with all of their paperwork in order.
By working with us you’ll know that you are compliant, your grow is operating smoothly, and that you stand out from the crowd with our innovative, outside-the-box thinking on attracting customers to your products and services.
