Business Plan Articles

The increasing adoption of medical cannabis has generated several opportunities within the United States. The emerging industry of dispensing medication to approved patients is growing rapidly. Increasing social acceptance towards the medication is expected to continue, being met with new investors entering the industry that are eager to provide support to help new companies succeed. Pro Business Plans has worked with a number of medical cannabis dispensaries across the United States to both submit documentation for investment and state license approval.

Cannabis Dispensary Business Plan

It is very important that new dispensaries have a professional plan in place in order request state approval or seek investment. A quality business plan helps to communicate the professional approach and responsibility of the management team. A template is often invalid for creating a business plan, as every dispensary has a unique operations structure. The financial projections depend on the volume and price of the medication, in addition to the number of patients and overall cost structure.

Distribution License

Some states have a competitive application process for distribution, which means your company must have the best possible application in order to receive the distribution rights. Communicating a well-rounded, professional team that is passionate about the medical advantages of cannabis will benefit your application. Unlike generic templates that make every company sound the same, we build it 100% around your business model.

Investor Acquisition

While there are many investors entering the medical marijuana space, it is still competitive to keep their attention. Moreover, many investment firms will require a business plan as part of the due diligence process in the medical cannabis sector. Some investors may have specific requirements that your business plan must meet, so it is important to comply with their requests.

Operations Plan

It is important to regulators that a medical marijuana dispensary business plan communicate that the product is to be properly handled and tested through the entire supply chain. The dispensary location must comply with regulations, in addition to having a strict procedure to prevent distribution to non-patients. Ensuring that the cannabis is stored securely to eliminate inventory slippage or fire hazards are other concerns that the operations plan properly addresses.
