You can’t just put a cannabis dispensary someplace you want, and there are laws around where you can set up and just how close it can be to other businesses, however first things first, you need to identify the competition! Are there already multiple cannabis dispensaries on the street barely making ends meet? You don’t want to flood the market and make the cost of the products lowerâ€¦ You also don’t want to go in an section that isn’t cannabis friendly. Another particularly important thing to consider is if the section is medical weed and recreational weed legal. You need to find out what the actual laws are in terms of sale, then some locales are particularly drastic when it comes to flowers, oil and edibles. You need to consider the people in the community and what they want. Are you in a high income section that would be all medical weed patients? Are you serving school aged students looking for recreational marijuaan? What do people want to see when they go into your store? Most important proximity is a large factor with cannabis dispensaries. You can’t be within a particular distance of a school, daycare or someplace else that houses children. Typically it is around 500 feet! It is important to check before you land onto a building. For myself and others it was easy choosing our bilding and the vibe of our store. I just used a cannabis consulting repair for that area of the process. They knew all the legal sides of it and went around the city. They found exactly what section needed a dispensary and what kind of store I should have.
