Hydrolife explains Cannabis Business Alliance (CBA)
The Cannabis Business Association was established in 2009 as the medical marijuana industry emerged. The Cannabis Business Association helps people in the marijuana industry to grow and develop their business. It provides information about political movements and developments as the industry extends across the country.
Membership in the association includes being put on a member's list and being able to submit event listings, press relations like press releases, interviews and brand representation, working group eligibility, socials, a voter's guide, sponsorship discounts, and lobbying. There is also a monthly newsletter.
The Cannabis Business Association serves as an advocate for public policy and protects individuals involved in the marijuana industry. It serves to educate and inform communities about the medical marijuana industry. A subgroup of the CBA is the Infused Products Council which focuses on things involved with edibles and policies on edibles.
More cannabis business organizations like the CBA are cropping up around the world as medical marijuana gains a stronger foot-hold. In Canada, for example, there is the Cannabis Friendly Business Association. There is also Women Grow in North America, and the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) in the US is a not-for-profit business league created to serve the specific needs of minority cannabis entrepreneurs, workers, and patients/consumers.
