State License Forms & Analysis

When trying to open a dispensary in a new state, there is a formula for being successful. It can be a very costly and risky investment as this is still an entirely new industry.To be successful in being awarded a dispensary license we believe in four C.O.R.E. values that we know can make a difference.

C- Commitment

Participating in a state dispensary license process can be exhausting and costly so it’s important to be in it to win it! There are a lot of individuals and groups that lose steam and their commitment in the end, costing them a lot of time and money.

O – Organization

Having a professional group with a background that represents the organization of the highest quality. This group must know the risks and bring productive value to the table in their respective backgrounds. Even if you are a single applicant, its important to understand how to manage external relationships to provide the most benefit to your organization and its presentation.

R. – Requirements

In the state regulation process, the department in charge of the program will likely issue an RFP (Request for Proposal) application identifying required dispensary business plans. Having these necessary dispensary or cultivation site business plans included in your proposal and more is critical in a point-based merit selection system. We feel it is absolutely important to have more than all of the correct requirements the state will ask for to assure them that you’re more than qualified.

E – Education

Knowledge really is power and nothing less. Especially if the industry is brand new to you, it is crucial to seek out and obtain as much knowledge as possible on the industry, who you should be working with, and how this type of business operates from a cultivation to a retail standpoint.
