Securing a local (city or county) permit is crucial for any new or established cannabis business to operate in compliance with California medical and recreational cannabis laws. A commercial cannabis application can be time consuming and expensive, and will require a substantial amount of preparation, organization, and due diligence. While the requirements for each city or county may differ, there are a few constants that most cities will ask for, such as:
The names of the individuals that manage and own your entity
A background check on all owners and mangers
Corporate registration and governance documents (Articles of incorporation, bylaws, etc)
Property description (i.e., city zoning map)
