It’s not easy to open and run a cannabis dispensary.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered when opening a dispensary.
I started growing cannabis as a hobby, but I quickly realized that I had a knack for growing the medicine. I started off with one plant and moved to four and then eight which was the maximum plants allowed by law under the state medical marijuana laws. Eventually, I was supplying my friends with marijuana from my home garden. I was sharing, because selling would be illegal. I had big dreams of selling my plants to a medical marijuana dispensary, because I knew Ic ouldn;t just open one of my own. My parents loaned me $100,000 so I could hire a cannabis consultant to help me achieve my dreams. I really needed someone with knowledge in every different area, so it was hard to find the right person to lead me into the future. Thankfully, there are a couple of cannabis consulting firms in the city, about two hours from my home. I called several consultants and found a person willing to meet with me for free. I really liked the vibe we had in the interview, so I retained the cannabis consultant and we entered into a contract. It’s been six months since I hired the consultant and I already have my strains in three different dispensaries. I also have an offer to increase production and move north. I’m not ready to move away from my mom and dad, and would rather have my own shop closer to home.
