About Us

Our experience stems from both outside and inside the cannabis industry. Outside, our consultants have provided planning, permitting, and licensing compliance services to the land development community for decades. Our strategic guidance has typically saved our clients significant time and money, while creating better projects.

Inside the cannabis industry, we have operated as a cultivation and wholesale medical marijuana business for 7 years and are intimately aware of the rapidly changing legislation – MCRSA, AUMA – now regulating the cannabis industry. We know how to best to position these businesses for success in the next several years. How we advise you is how we would advise ourselves!
