Cannabis License Applications & Assistance Nationwide
Since 2014, we have assisted our clients with highly-competitive state cannabis license applications. Focused on Illinois, where the first statutory cannabis applications were first required, we have been successful in achieving results and launching thriving cannabis businesses. Driven by our understanding that combative cannabis applications are about scoring points in the application process, we focus our clients on applications that are responsive to state requirements. “Follow the instructions and score the points” is the Cannabis Law winning philosophy.
Interpretation of State Cannabis Guidelines
Knowing the law is only part of what we do; knowing how to apply the law is another part. Knowing what the regulators care about most is the best way to appeal to their interests. We deal with numerous state laws and regulations. They are not always the same and knowing the state regulatory philosophy is key to getting positive results. Our philosophy: embrace the state guidelines and make them work for you.

Advising and coordinating with ancillary service providers is also what we do.
