    Lawrence Horwitz, Esq., President of Compliance - Mr. Horwitz represents cannabis operators along the entire supply chain throughout California.

Jared puts his expertise to use working with cannabis startup businesses, exceeding 200 new corporations.

  • 6. What budget should I expect to start a cannabis business?
     

    $100,000 to $500,000; depending on if you want a business that needs a license and the county you want to be located in, that cost can go significantly higher!

    We always suggest more since there are plenty of unexpected costs along the way. It is best to have an investor, rather than try to bootstrap the costs on your own.
