Daily Briefings: Cannabis Operations and COVID-19
Resources to Help Businesses Adapt During the Coronavirus Outbreak
Update for 2021:
As we are now past the 1-year mark of COVID shutdowns, the cannabis industry is experiencing a surge in growth from being deemed an essential business during the pandemic and from the flurry of new states passing medical marijuana or adult-use legislation in the 2020 elections and 2021 legislative sessions. Our team can help cannabis entrepreneurs navigate opportunities this “new normal”.
As things change daily — and sometimes by the hour — we want to make our resources available to cannabis business operators during these uncertain times.
We’re no stranger to tumultuous market conditions. We’ve been through other crisis situations in other industries and weathered the unpredictable early days of building the cannabis industry.
During the past 8 years, we have built a strong team of industry experts who can address your questions related to ongoing changes surrounding COVID-19.
Our team is providing daily video briefings to keep you up to date, help you adapt, and protect your business interests.
We also have a hotline in place so you can schedule hourly consultations with our team of industry experts.
You can call us, send an email, or send a text — and we’ll get back with you promptly.
“We’re here for you. Let’s work together to ensure the industry we have built together stays together.” -Diane & Jay Czarkowski
