Cannabis businesses and cannabis-related businesses are continually faced with significant hurdles when attempting to access services that are widely available to traditional businesses.
CCA will create individualized compliance programs for clients that offer financial institutions, landlords, insurance providers and payment processors the level of due diligence necessary to make these important operational services available directly to cannabusinesses.
