Despite all the challenges, regulations and roadblocks the cannabis industry faces, the vast majority of marijuana companies are actually doing well financially. Nearly 90% of operating dispensaries and recreational marijuana stores, infused products companies and wholesale cultivators – the three pillars of the MJ trade – report that they are profitable or at least breaking even, according to the 2016 Marijuana Business Factbook.

Profit margins in the retail side of the cannabis industry are more modest than for other types of cannabis business due in part to the fact that average startup costs for dispensaries are higher than other sectors of the marijuana business. Median operational costs for retailers are also the highest in the industry, at around $600,000 annually.

Cannabis Dispensary Business Plan

The Cannabis Dispensary Business Plan is an essential document if you own or are going own a medical marijuana dispensary. If you are applying for a dispensary permit or are interested in obtaining funding, the dispensary business plan is also a vital document to have.

Cannabis dispensary business conditions differ from state to state and if you have planned to set up your own dispensary business, then you must comply with the laws of your particular state. Licensing requirements will also depend on on the type of business you wish to start. Someone who operates a grow house will require a completely different type of license than someone who owns a marijuana dispensary.

The Cannabis Dispensary Business Plan is prepared based on the existing knowledge of consultants regarding the Medical Marijuana Industry in general and is specific to State.
