As Pennsylvania prepares to open up the application process for medical cannabis licenses, entrepreneurs who want to get in on the ground floor of the industry need to start making plans now.
Green Rush Consulting (GRC) is offering individuals who want to gain a better understanding of Pennsylvania's competitive application process the opportunity to book a private consultation this month in Philadelphia. GRC co-founders Zeta Ceti and Sarah Cross will be available for consultations on September 23rd, 24th, and 25th to provide key strategic advice on the application process, and answer questions on how to best prepare for it.
"Pennsylvania will be an excellent market to set up a medical cannabis business. The state is allowing for a large number of licenses and we expect a robust patient population," says Ceti.
The Pennsylvania medical cannabis applications are expected to be released in December, with a deadline in January 2017. Because of the high number of patient qualifying conditions the state is allowing, Pennsylvania is expected to be one of the biggest medical cannabis markets on the East Coast.
GRC has a seasoned team of industry professionals with extensive experience developing applications for medical cannabis licenses, and recently helped clients in Maryland secure two cannabis manufacturing licenses.
"We have worked with clients in states across the U.S. over the last decade, and we have a unique insight and understanding on what it takes to win," says Ceti. "In our experience, early preparation and detailed project planning are key components to success."
Pennsylvania will award 25 grower/processor licenses, five of which will allow holders to open up to three dispensaries each, and 50 dispensing licenses, which also permit up to three dispensaries each.
Interested parties should reserve their space in advance for these exclusive and informative consultations to be held in downtown Philadelphia. Consultations include a one-hour meeting with Ceti and Cross, who will provide an overview of the Pennsylvania licensing opportunities and strategies for success.
Individuals who book a consultation in Philadelphia can also take advantage of GRC's earlybird discount on a state license application.
GRC recently opened an East Bay cannabis community center in its home base of Oakland, and a percentage of every consultation sale will go towards the center, and supporting individuals impacted by the War on Drugs.
