Who participated in the Cannabis CFO Survey?

To effectively tap into the cannabis business zeitgeist, we reached out to a wide range of operators, investors, and ancillary service providers in every legal market throughout the United States.

As the responses rolled in, patterns and themes emerged across geographic, social, and economic divides. CEOs, CFOs, Founders and others were happy to share their triumphs and tribulations.

Responses from the cannabis community include:

The greatest strength of the cannabis industry is in our sense of community. There is power in knowing that others are facing, and overcoming, the same issues.

In the end, success for one is success for all as we share the common goal of normalizing cannabis and building a resilient and profitable industry. We hope the insights shared in this report provide some useful perspective.
