State License Applications and Emerging Markets

The merit-based application process has become the preferred model for the majority of states adopting medical, adult use and/or low-THC cannabis programs. ACC’s cannabis consulting division has assisted clients in securing 13 operational licenses in 7 states as well as assisted two Canadian firms with completing Health Canada approvals. Our approach is informed with the deep experience of continued success in the merit-based state medical marijuana application processes and our track record of successfully establishing new compliant operations in emerging markets. The “fit” or “composition” of a team is a major component of winning, and ACC carefully selects its clients based on calculated success criteria. We know what it takes and have the formula to replicate it. Our process includes:

  • Strategic Planning Activities
  • Regulatory Review
  • In-Market Visits
