California has been a forward-thinking state far longer than any other. It was the very first state to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana or cannabis. The result is billions of dollars in profit, both for the state of California and for the owners of cannabis bodegas and cannabis growers. If you are looking to cash in on California’s cannabis industry, you first need a California cannabis license.
The License Distinguishes You as a Legal Business
Selling cannabis on a street corner is not exactly legal. You want to keep your business on the up and up. Getting your California cannabis license takes a little time, but then you can sell as much cannabis as you want without worrying about possibly being arrested for carrying massive amounts of pot on your person. It is still a federally illegal substance, and unlicensed sellers can face stiff legal penalties in this state.
You Also Need a License to Cultivate and Grow Marijuana
If you want to grow an entire warehouse of products, you need a license/permit for that as well. Each city in California limits the number of permits and licenses it grants each year. It is best to get your application in as soon as possible or miss out on your permit/license until next year. A whole year’s profits in this industry are not something you want to lose.
