Cannaware Society Presents CannaTalk Vol. 6: The Breakdown and Big Future of Ancillary Cannabis Businesses. Watch this panel discussion breaking down the different types of ancillary cannabis businesses, and key things that ancillary entrepreneurs will need to know
Like any major industry, the US cannabis industry relies on a wide range of other products and services for survival and success. Many different kinds of cannabis-related businesses, known as “ancillary businesses,” support the industry behind the plant in every step from seed to sale — often without ever touching cannabis or hemp.
And while “cannabis-touching” businesses like producers, processors, and retailers (PPRs) are still held back in many regions by state or federal law, ancillary businesses can begin preparing and even operating today, and get a head start on tomorrow’s legal cannabis industry.
In fact, industry experts say that ancillary cannabis businesses make up most of today’s industry as a whole. These business areas include, but are not limited to: Packaging & Marketing, Compliance, Consulting, Cultivation Products & Services, Extraction Equipment, Lab Testing, Media & Events, Payroll, Staffing, Security, and Software.
As New York lawmakers gear up to legalize adult-use cannabis as early as next year, our panelist will be breaking down the different types of ancillary cannabis businesses, and key things that ancillary entrepreneurs will need to know.
