FAQs

About:

  1. How long has your company been around for?
    Back in 2010, Dispensary Permits was established in Scottsdale, Arizona when Arizona was in the process of legalizing marijuana for medicinal use. After the firm represented multiple applicants to secure dispensary licenses, the team went on from state to state to assist governing bodies and entrepreneurs build Medical Marijuana programs in 16 states over the last 9 years.

  1. What is your success rate?
    We don’t have the hard data of how many applications we have submitted total. There were numerous applications submitted when our company was first founded that were undocumented. However, we know we have participated in 16 state markets and been successful in 14 of them. Therefore, we’re in the 90th percentile.  

  1. Do you have existing dispensaries, cultivation centers, processing centers, etc.?
    Yes, we currently have a cultivation and processing center in Arizona (Item 9 Labs), a cultivation and processing center in Nevada (Strive Wellness), and a dispensary franchise model known as Strive Life.

Templates:

  1. How are the templates developed/designed? 
    The templates are designed by subject matter experts, consultant’s best practices, and winning application materials for marijuana business licenses. The templates were intentionally designed not to cater to any specific geographic region in order for customers to add, delete, or edit content to fit their market, business, and state laws. They come in editable files such as word document and excel spreadsheets.

  1. How can the templates be helpful to various audiences and entrepreneurs?
    Each template has been drafted by industry consultants and subject-matter experts, and therefore offers the best guidance and planning for every component of a marijuana business.

    The individual templates are designed to cater to various audiences. For example, entrepreneurs who want to establish a business or get investors. Customers have also used templates to help with the drafting of city and/or state applications for marijuana business licenses. Another example would be customers operating in an unregulated market and having to transition into a regulated market, such as California.

    Ancillary businesses and/or professional services such as lawyers, other business consultants, security, recommending physicians, and CPAs find our templates helpful to not only educate but draft marijuana specific plans within their specialty.

  1. What will entrepreneurs need to do specifically with each template to customize it? Example, level of research for local and state regulations, financial components, etc. 
    They will need to customize the templates with their business model and local city/state regulations governing marijuana businesses. It’s hard to determine how long it will take someone to complete these plans as everyone works at a different pace. We consider our templates to be about 70% ready-to-go.

  1. What is your success rate?

However, we know we have participated in 16 state markets and been successful in 14 of them. Therefore, we’re in the 90th percentile.  

  1. Can I have references of those that have worked with you to submit an application?
    Direct references of clients who we have submitted applications with will be made available after we have determined we would like to work together with your team on a custom level. For references of our consulting and template solutions, scroll through the testimonials on our home page.

  1. Do you travel to where you are working to submit an application?
    If the application process calls for an in-person submission, we will determine how to handle traveling to the state on that case-by-case basis, if it’s necessary. But for the application preparation and writing period, we do all of our work through telecommunication. That means conference calls, e-mails, Dropbox file sharing, etc. Once our clients have been awarded a license, we offer services to help get them into operation and will then typically travel to help facilitate their grand opening.

  1. How do you avoid conflict of interest in state markets with the different clients you assist?
    We don’t take more than 3-4 clients in each market, and ensure their proposed locations are in separate regions of the state so they are not competing in the same geographical area.
