How We Help You

We know that finding trusted business partners and service providers in this industry can be daunting. So, we’ve done the work for you. Using our network, we’ve curated a list of providers who work with cannabis businesses, including plant-touching businesses, that meet CannaMatch proprietary criteria in order to join our network. Our providers include funders, service providers, vendors, partners, buyers and sellers. We have worked with many of these providers ourselves, and it’s one of the reasons we formed CannaMatch – to share our network with you. And the best part? CannaMatch is 100% free to cannabis licensees looking for help, with no commitment of any kind.

CannaMatch Providers

We know the life cycle of a licensee because we’ve been there ourselves. So, we know you’ll need funding, banking, insurance, accounting, legal, real estate, construction, equipment, marketing, HR, staffing, and operational help. Here, you’ll find providers in each of these categories (and more) who have been curated by the CannaMatch team and are excited to work with both start-ups and more experienced cannabis operators.

Interested in Buying, Selling or Partnering on Your License?

Anyone who has been in the cannabis industry for any significant amount of time knows that standing up a cannabis business of any kind is incredibly difficult, especially for smaller or independent operators. As a result, we know that some licensees will choose to buy additional licenses to scale their business plan, while others will choose to partner with other groups or sell their license(s) altogether. We’re here to help. If you are interested in buying, selling or partnering, please let us know by clicking the button below.
