    A valid Cannabis License permit grants the holder the right to possess, manufacture, reconstitute, distribute retail, and sell drugs and products derived from cannabis. Depending on existing regulations, a valid license can also cover the retail of concentrates, vapes, edibles, capsules, and tinctures.

We leverage our expertise and personnel network to fast-track your license application, approval, and issuing processes.
