As we have seen through this year, and from many who came to us, desperate to get operations going again- the California licensing landscape saw a serious and dramatic decline in licenses offered to cannabis operations. As local jurisdictions catch up on cannabis policy-making and states halt issue temporary licenses, cannabis business operators scrambled to meet the complex licensing and permitting landscape.
All that’s left in the legal market today are companies that were able to obtain either provisional or annual cannabis business permits, a pool significantly smaller than the original group of temporary licensees.
The reasoning for that is simple: Temporary licenses were fairly easy to obtain and didn’t require much in the way of compliance with state or local business codes. That often led to companies obtaining temporary permits but, in many instances, are now surprised by how intricate the licensing and permitting processes are for each locale.
We have helped hundreds this year obtain their necessary licenses and we can help you.
