West Virginia Medical Marijuana Market

West Virginia Releases Medical Marijuana Licensing Applications

Opportunities for entrepreneurs to get into West Virginia’s medical marijuana market are here. The state announced the first round of medical marijuana licensing applications in November 2019.  Licensing applications release December 19 and are due on or before February 18, 2020 — entrepreneurs should be actively preparing for submission. 

West Virginia plans to award 10 Cultivation, 10 Processor, and 100 Dispensary licenses. This application process will be highly competitive, and we predict the winners will be robust, experienced teams that are well-capitalized. Vertical integration is allowed and favored in this process, likely resulting in 10 large companies with 1 cultivation, 1 processor, and several dispensary licenses each.

Early business plan work puts aspiring entrepreneurs in a great competitive position, and gives them a detailed understanding of the market potential, as well as business financial modeling that can aid in securing adequate capital to launch the business.
