The Architecture Process
Once you've landed on the logistics, it's time to start thinking about building your cannabis business.
While you could start your cannabis business sales online, you will still need a physical location to start growing and maintaining your cannabis products. This is where many new growers and sellers get hung up and ultimately give up.
The good news is that you can overcome these logistical challenges with the right plan and professional cannabis business architect. Yes, they do exist!
Here are some of the most important questions you should ask as you start building your new cannabis business:
16. How much money do you plan to invest in capital equipment necessary for growing cannabis:
● ventilation systems
● fertilizer systems
● irrigation systems
● front-of-house sales systems and retail space
● online sales systems
17. What personal property (land, building, greenhouse, etc.) will you be using to run this business?
● If renting, do you have a signed lease agreement and the landlord's permission to use it for a cannabis business?
● If leasing, how much is your monthly rent payment what does it include? If selling what are the terms of the sale and closing compensation?
18. Do you have a general contractor or other business associates lined up who can help you with building construction, installation of essential equipment, guidance for growing methods, and more?
19. What kind of security system will you employ to protect your property and product from theft or other offenses?
When it comes to building your business, you will need to invest time and money into your physical location.
This includes sourcing the right location, legal and zoning permits, construction costs, or renting a space that's up to code for growing marijuana.
The best way to start working out these details is by partnering with a professional architecture firm equipped and experienced in helping launch cannabis businesses.
