Cannabis Application Consulting

Starting a cannabis business is a detailed and complex process that requires a team of Subject Matter Experts to develop and implement your business. FOCUS Application Services relies on our vast network of expertise from both inside and outside the cannabis industry to navigate clients through every step of this complex process.

We have studied the laws and regulatory structure to understand what the state is looking for in an application team, as well as cannabis business. Not only do FOCUS experts have relationships with state regulators, they will attend all local council meetings on their clients’ behalf to assure we are fully aware of all application requirements to apply for the winning license.

Applicants receive proprietary FOCUS Operational Materials and Standard Operating Procedures that create the foundation of the application. Our experts utilize FOCUS materials to develop custom Business Plans, Budgets, Operations Plans, Product Specifications, Organizational Charts, Security Plans, Project Management Plans, Employee Manuals, and training based on regulation requirements and FOCUS standards. This strong foundation not only creates a winning application, it also prepares an operation for continued success.

In states relying on local municipalities to first approve an applicant under city/county regulations, FOCUS works with local government to gain approval for your business in the local jurisdiction. Once approved, FOCUS works with state agencies to obtain that license as well. The cannabis industry is primed for competition, making operational compliance and financial oversite critical components of a successful application. Utilizing FOCUS standards in the application prepares a business to maintain ongoing compliance and FOCUS certification with our custom digital platform that builds quality and safety into daily operations.
