Finding the right building for your cannabis dispensary is absolutely key! All the paperwork, licensing, rule following plus financing is important as well; But the building is where you store the money makers plus begin your business! That was the most exciting step of the whole process, then i was really buying something that was going to make myself and others money rather than just paying fees for papers.
I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to choose a building.
I am so thankful that right from morning 1 of this process I had hired a cannabis consultant to be with me. I had a building that was adequate in price plus I was getting the seller to lower it even more; My cannabis consultant immediately halted myself and others plus told myself and others that I couldn’t use the space! When you are buying a cannabis dispensary, pay attention to the zoning restrictions, but for example, in my area you can’t have a dispensary within a particular distance of a university, church, community center, Barnes plus Noble, park, basically where children will be present. The building I was going to buy was right next to a church. Thank goodness I found that out right away. The cannabis consultant helped myself and others track down the proper space, however he said that every one of us needed to find a building that catered to our target audience. We wanted to pay attention to the establishments around it. Is there parking? Is the community cannabis friendly? Is there competition nearby? All these things I never considered until my cannabis consultant pointed them out.
