"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffett

Fractional Commercial Strategy
& Compliance Officer 

Let’s face it, the cannabis market is fiercely competitive, painfully expensive, and highly regulated. To succeed as a brand or license applicant, you need to distinguish your team from the pack while optimizing cost-efficiencies wherever possible.

Whether you market edibles, own a 100,000 square foot cultivation facility, operate a retail store-front or dispensary, or are a new license applicant, having a thoughtful business strategy that prioritizes compliance will set you apart. The fractional Commercial Strategy & Compliance Officer (Fractional C-Suite) does both. This unique executive role combines FDA compliance oversight and commercialization strategy functions that are essential to building sustainable brand equity and successful cannabis businesses.

Distinguish your team from the crowd and bolster your bottom-line while mitigating compliance risks. 

Avoid the excessive big law firm fees and the frustration with inexperience branding companies by engaging 1 executive skilled in 2 functions.  An expert with real-world experience launching  FDA-regulated products world-wide, and litigating cases involving deceptive pharmaceutical marketing, our Fractional Chief Commercial Strategy & Compliance Officer can be engaged part-time, full-time, or on a consulting basis tailored to meet your cannabis business where you are in your growth trajectory.
