LICENSING AND APPLICATIONS

Consulting and Management Services for Securing a Cannabis License

Do you intend the cannabis industry in a state or country that has recently approved medical or adult-use cannabis laws? Still, you need help figuring out where to start with the application process. We understand that it can be overwhelming to navigate the licensing process, but we’re here to guide you through it.

Applying for a cannabis license is the first step to becoming an operator. It is important to get this right by working with an experienced application writing team that knows how to position you to win. This is especially true in countries, states, and localities where licenses are limited and competitive. Harvest 360 has managed application efforts for clients that have won some of the most competitive and valuable licenses in the country.

Our services are comprehensive and account for all aspects of the application. Every application is different, so we critically evaluate all of the components that need to come together, their prioritization, and account for all of the unique regulatory considerations that impact it.

Although every application process has different requirements, here are some of the focal areas that commonly need to be addressed through specific plans, procedures, and policies:

What Sets Us Apart:

Customized Success

We limit the number of applicants we work with in order to give each of them the personalized attention and support they need to have the highest probability of success.​

Market Immersion

Harvest 360 team members work to embed themselves in the markets that pass legislation and open up applications. This allows us to provide better realtime input and responsiveness to whatever challenges arise on a day-to-day basis.​

Personalized Prosperity

We appreciate every client’s uniqueness. Most consultants and application writers take a one-size-fits-all approach to applications for licensing. This can not just lower the chances of success, but it can cause costly and avoidable challenges even if you are awarded. We take the time to make sure that all components of your plans, procedures, and processes detailed in your application position you for success both in your application as well as in your future operation. Once you win a license, you have to follow through on what you commit to in your application. This is why it’s important to work with a team that wants to not just plan for what will win a license but what will resonate with you long-term.​

Holistic Alignment

We get to know you as well as your values, vision, and goals. We want to help you build something that resonates with you as well as position you for success both near-term and long-term.
