US (AZ): Breaking into the Arizona cannabis industry

Arizona has become the land of opportunity when it comes to businesses surrounding the cannabis and marijuana industry, and that includes companies that don’t even grow or handle cannabis. GreenPharms in Mesa shares some expert insight about the burgeoning cannabis industry and how local entrepreneurs can get in on it.

There are many ways to become a part of the cannabis industry — and in ways that don’t even involve the handling of cannabis — such as dispensaries, which are mainly retail and customer service. There are also cannabis brands (such as concentrate brands, edible brands, skincare brands, CBD brands, and more) that don’t have a brick and mortar store but that wholesale to other dispensaries and are recognized as a local brand. Then there are venues that are marketed specifically as being cannabis-friendly and host parties and events where medicating onsite is permitted. There are also yearly conventions and festivals for the cannabis industry, and these are fairly large productions employing many people to help put the events together. 

The cannabis industry has certainly made an economic impact in just a short time. The U.S. and Arizona economies have benefited from cannabis-related businesses by way of the creation of thousands of jobs. For states that allow recreational use, there is an abundance of tax revenue that is then directed into the local economy in ways that benefit the community.
