I was at a loss on where I should put my cannabis dispensary.
I was working on all the legal side of things.
I got the paperwork done and financing. I was ready to begin the process of starting my own business. I needed the address for my facility. Problem was I didn’t know where I was going to go. I looked all throughout town and talked to a real estate agent. I quickly realized the woman knew nothing about cannabis and what would be a good building for it. So I decided to try a cannabis consulting service to see if they could push me in the right direction. That guy was just amazing. First there are rules against where you can build a dispensary. You can be anywhere that children could frequent like a school, daycare or playground. You also don’t want to be near certain areas like another cannabis dispensary. The guy researched all throughout town and what buildings are nearby. He then provided me with a list of options of buildings that are for sale and what area they are in. He strongly advised me against going further into the city due to the competition. He assessed the market and determined that there wasn’t enough demand for another business. He also told me the type of store I open will be different depending on where I build. If I build in a small town, I need to stick to that vibe. I never would have thought about that.
