How do I start a Cannabis Business in California?

Currently under the regulations that stand, you will need to set up a “collective” or a non-profit mutual benefit corporation. This will come with a seller’s permit, Tax ID number, articles of incorporation and corporate name. You will then need to file by-laws, corporate minutes, and a board of directors for your company. There are additional things that need to be done from an operational standpoint as well, but this is what is required to “start a business entity” in California.
