California Cannabis Business Consulting

Helping Cannabis Business Owners From Our Headquarters in Los Angeles and Offices in San Diego and the Bay Area


The commercial cannabis industry in California is growing exponentially, and revenues are expected to increase dramatically over the next few years. With this emerging sector comes opportunities for entrepreneurs and business owners to claim a share of the market.

Cannabis operations include retail dispensaries, cultivation, manufacturing, testing laboratories, distribution, and microbusinesses. At Green Wise Consulting (GWC), we work with cannabis-related businesses throughout the supply chain in securing permits and licenses, selecting viable locations, and creating quality standard operating procedures to maintain compliance for the business's long-term stability and profitability.

GWC is not a law firm and does not provide legal services, but as such legal needs are likely to arise, Green Wise Legal, P.C. is a related entity with partial common ownership that offers a full range of cannabis business-related legal services.

Property Due Diligence Assessment and Analysis

Deciding when, where and how to establish your business is a vital early element of future success. Our team will work with you in identifying a viable location and advise on how best to engage with the local jurisdiction during the adoption of local ordinances while assessing costs and other factors. GWC's due diligence takes into account local restrictions such as zoning, "green zones," and buffers for sensitive-use receptors such as schools, parks, churches, and daycare/youth centers. We also consider other factors ranging from the adequacy of parking, energy, and water that could weigh heavily on determining an appropriate location for your cannabis business.

Application Drafting or Preparation

Our team is equipped to help obtain all necessary local, state, and regulatory permits and licenses for legally opening and operating your cannabis business. Before a cannabis business may begin operations, it must first obtain a license/permit from the local regulatory authority within the jurisdiction the operations will be conducted and thereafter apply to the proper state regulatory authority (Bureau of Cannabis Control, Department of Public Health – Office of Manufactured Cannabis Safety, or the Department of Food and Agriculture) for annual licensure. GWC acts as a staunch advocate for our clients in all stages of the process. We will also assist in securing all needed application components to meet the local and state government requirements, so you are supported throughout the process.

Regulatory and Business Compliance

The cannabis industry in California is tightly controlled by government regulations at the state, county, and local levels. Maintaining compliance with all applicable laws and guidelines is crucial both during the licensing process and once your business has opened. GWC can help you make regulatory compliance part of your standard operating procedures (SOPs). We will assist you in developing and maintaining sound record keeping, recruitment, hiring, reporting, auditing, and inspection-readiness practices so that your business can always remain in good standing.

Post-Licensure Compliance Consulting

Once you have obtained your initial licenses, the real work of building your business can begin. As you do so, however, you must remain in full compliance with all applicable state, county, and local regulations. Non-compliance could result in the denial of your license renewal and a host of other problems for your business. At GWC, we can help you with any compliance concerns you may have so that your company's future is secure. We even offer an Auditing Program to help you be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
