Running a successful dispensary requires more than just obtaining a license—it demands excellence in daily operations, customer service, and compliance. By implementing best practices in retail management, enhancing customer experiences, and ensuring regulatory compliance, we empower your dispensary to stand out in a competitive market. You seek streamlined processes, inventory management, and staff training to ensure your business thrives. At Cann Strategy, we specialize in optimizing your dispensary's operations to boost efficiency and profitability.

Running a cultivation facility demands a high level of operational excellence and strict adherence to regulatory standards. You require robust compliance measures, detailed operating procedures, efficient inventory control, and innovative product development strategies to thrive in this competitive industry. Cann Strategy is dedicated to enhancing your facility's operations by ensuring all aspects of compliance are meticulously managed, standardizing procedures for consistency and quality, optimizing inventory management, and driving innovative product development.

Processing cannabis involves complex procedures that require precision, safety, and compliance. Whether you’re extracting, refining, or packaging, your facility needs to operate at peak efficiency to maintain product integrity and regulatory compliance. At Cann Strategy, we help streamline your processing operations, focusing on improving efficiency, quality control, and safety protocols. By optimizing workflows and implementing industry best practices, we ensure your processing facility produces high-quality products consistently, meeting both consumer expectations and legal standards.

Creating a memorable experience in a consumption lounge goes beyond just providing a space for cannabis use—it’s about creating a safe, enjoyable, and compliant environment for your customers. You need effective operational strategies, staff training, and compliance measures to ensure your lounge becomes a destination of choice. Cann Strategy partners with you to design and implement operational frameworks that enhance customer experience, ensure safety, and maintain regulatory compliance. We help you transform your vision into a thriving social hub where customers feel welcomed and valued.

New York

We went ALL in and contracted for the Diamond Level License Application Consulting was nothing short of phenomenal! We were among the first to win an adult use retail dispensary license in New York. Cann Strategy didn't just consult; they became our indispensable allies  – they were a game changer.

I was VERY happy to have been referred to Cann strategy by our legal team.  We only had 10 days to fix our original application (we did on our own) or else we were done for.  The Cann Strategy team fixed the whole application in time and we WON!  We got a Chicago dispensary license!

The team wrote our dispensary license applications and helped all of our ownership team through every step of the process.  There were only 60 licenses available in the state. We would have felt lucky just getting one dispensary license and we won THREE of them, in the most popular jurisdictions.

The team fully prepared us to launch our first dispensary, everything from our state compliant SOPs, to doing the state inspection with us for approval, and setting up the store and preparing the team. We worked with them to get our second set of vertical licenses, and we have been successful ever since.

We encourage everyone to work with the Cann Strategy team and we look forward to continued success.  We entrusted them to write SOPs for our entire vertical application and became one of the first licensees in Mississippi.

We've owned a successful cultivation for years and worked with Cann Strategy for our first social consumption lounge license. They wrote every business plan and SOP to the absolute T and now we're proudly one of the VERY FIRST 20 lounge license holders in the entire state!

Let's work together.
