Our story began in Boulder, Colorado, a hotbed of innovation and free-spirited ambition. We helped the state of Colorado and its cannabis entrepreneurs create and manage the groundbreaking legislation, and as the legal cannabis movement expanded, so did we. State by state, country by country, Canna Advisors has helped drive policy and consulted emerging businesses across the world. We’ve forged strong networks of strategic partnerships that have helped grow the emerging cannabis economy. Few can claim our knowledge or understanding of this industry, and even fewer can claim our influence. All told, we have 85+ years of experience in cannabis on our team. Cannabis Business Executive named us the #1 Consulting Firm in 2017, and we were ranked #51 in the 2017 CBE Ancillary Business 150 List.
We invest our time, energy, and thought leadership into cannabis because we have seen what a difference we can make. Four of our members participate on national NCIA Committees, which allows us to raise the voices of our clients across the country and provide thought-leadership on important industry issues and challenges. We know that with a strong, collective voice, we can effect change that enhances quality of life, improves communities, remedies social justice issues, and builds a diverse and inclusive industry.
