Thankfully, I didn’t need to hire a cannabis business permit service.
I was able to handle the legal side of setting up my cannabis dispensary.
Where I needed help was with the POS system and tracking all my cannabis products. Everyone told me that it was a good idea to hire a cannabis consultant. I started researching and I chose the one that was cheapest. The guy came in and I immediately knew something was wrong. He started talking about marijuana but citing wrong facts. It was clear the guy had only grown maybe a few pot plants in his life. He had no idea what I meant when I was talking about yields, crystallization and HID lights. The guy only knew certain terms and only a few products that it would take to grow weed. That immediately had me on edge. Then when he started talking about how to track my cannabis products and the layout of my store, it was clear he didn’t really know much. I immediately canceled with him and started looking again. I found that a lot of people are trying to be cannabis consultants. Apparently anybody who grows a pot plant feels they are qualified to help my business. There were sad stories of businesses folding because of poor advice. I ended up paying quite a fee for a highly qualified business consultant. It was worth every penny though. The difference between this marijuana marketing service vs the other one was night and day. The guy knew all there was to know about cannabis.
