Businesses Consulting

CCC’s business consulting sessions empower business owners to solve their own issues!

Remember that old proverb about fishing?

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

This concept is at the core of our philosophy.

Many cannabis consulting companies “take over,” writing your license application, setting up your facility, and even hiring your staff. That can seem great at the beginning, but when the company moves on and the dust clear, you may be left running a business that you don’t even understand!

Rather than jumping in and taking over, CCU’s approach is purely instructional. First, we’ll help you identify your needs, and then we’ll help you figure out the best way to meet them. Having problems? We’ll help you figure out what’s going on and help you brainstorm solutions.

What are the advantages of CCC Consulting?

  • We’re much less expensive than other consultants. Most cannabis-industry business consultants charge tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to license and set up a cannabusiness in an emerging market. That’s because they often do the bulk of the work. 
    With CCC, the business owner does most of the work, with guidance from expert cannabis business consultants only when requested. This greatly reduces the money you spend on consulting services, allowing you to spend it on your business!
  • The business owner has complete control. Most cannabis business startup consultants take care of everything you need to start your business—from writing your application to building out the facility to hiring employees. When the owner is out of the loop, they may end up with a business setup they hadn’t expected.
    With CCC, the business owner has complete control of every single aspect. That means no unpleasant surprises down the road!
  • CCC is à la carte—you choose exactly the services you want. At CCC, we don’t try to entice you with a package deal. We provide what you want and never ask you to pay for unwanted services.
