Starting a cannabis business begins with the application process. Depending on your state or local municipality, you will be required to go through a rigorous application process that includes the submission of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), a Compliance Overview, Community Benefits Plan, Odor Control Plan, Security Plan, and Business Plan. Some applications require additional content.

Compass and Arrow can help you secure a legal permit to operate a cannabis business in your state. We have secured permits in highly competitive markets throughout the Nation and have the subject matter expertise and operational know-how to create a competitive application.

Additionally, we can use our network of industry professionals to help you build a winning team!

Compass and Arrow is highly experienced in cannabis policy and compliance, and can help ensure that you and your business are operating legally. We can review your SOPs and training materials to provide you with the peace of mind that you are fully-compliant and are operating within the legal requirements of your jurisdiction and permit requirements.


Compass and Arrow has developed compliant Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS) for numerous clients who have been awarded cannabis-business permits. Often times, SOPS are required for the cannabis-permit application process, and can determine whether-or-not you are awarded a cannabis business license.


Our team can help you develop SOPS for practical operations or for the cannabis-permit application process. Although similar, SOPS for the cannabis-permit application process are written for an audience looking for evidence that you have done your due diligence and understand the legal requirements of operating a cannabis business.
