The cannabis licensing application process is complex and demanding. Each city and state have unique requirements, and regulations are continually changing at local and state levels. In many states the number of applicants far exceeds the number of licenses awarded. Successful applicants must design their business plans to not only comply with state regulations, but the local community’s intentions and standards, too. High-performing applicants must also prove to reviewers that their cannabis business plan can succeed in an ever-changing marketplace. Regulators will scrutinize your application and business plan as well as thoroughly examine your partner relationships. As applications become more and more competitive, it’s critical to strategically differentiate yours from the rest to successfully acquire a license.
