DENVER, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Denver Consulting Group (, the nation's leading cannabis consulting company, is providing guidance to entrepreneurs and businesses wishing to get into the Maryland's new medical marijuana industry.

Application deadlines for stage one of the licensing process have passed, and the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission will no longer be accepting submissions from individuals wishing to grow, process, or dispense medical marijuana in the state of Maryland.

The Commission now plans to stagger Stage One license approvals, awarding licenses for growers and processors first. This lead-in time will allow approved growers and producers to establish product lines for the anticipated demand of qualifying patients in Maryland.

Commission Chairman, Dr. Paul W. Davies, said that proactive applicants should already be finalizing stage two licensing requirements, such as real estate zoning approval and installation of equipment.

Denver Consulting Group can help companies that have applied for Stage One approval, by assuring that your practices are in full compliance with the regulations set forth by the Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission. 

Services offered by DCG include:

  • Real Estate and Facility Build-Out
  • Security Systems
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Staff Training
  • Equipment and Packaging
  • Compliance Checks

The Commission will award a maximum of two dispensary licenses per senatorial district, for a total of 94 dispensaries statewide. Take steps today to help assure that you are awarded the license you desire: whether growing, producing, or dispensing. Denver Consulting Group can provide a range of services that can help you succeed.
