Eager to Sell Cannabis Products in California? How to Get Started

Cannabis is the basis of one of the fastest-growing businesses in the United States. As more and more states legalize marijuana for recreational and/or medicinal use, it becomes a leading moneymaker for business entrepreneurs in those states. In California, it has been legal for some time now, but there is still plenty of money to be made. If you are eager to get started on your own cannabis shop, you will need a California cannabis license. Here’s how.

Check Your County and City Regulations Before Applying for a License

A lot of cannabis shop owners have made the mistake of not checking their city and county regulations. Cannabis products may be legal under Californian law, but the state also leaves it up to the city and county ordinances to set restrictions. You don’t want to apply for a license and then discover that things aren’t going to pan out quite as smoothly for you because of local restrictions.

Write a Solid Business Plan and Pick a Location That Is Zoned for Business

To apply for a California cannabis license, you have to write a solid business plan detailing what you want to sell in your shop and where you want to set up your shop. These are questions that may be asked by officials, and in some cases, you may be required to report the exact address of the shop before you get the license. To license a bar you have to provide an address where alcohol will be served. The same holds true for cannabis and cannabis shops.
