We like how NACB vets all of its members, which establishes a trusted community right out of the gate.  Their events both live and digital have been unique, artful, and inclusive. The community is absolutely amazing and supportive, and you will not find a more intelligent and collaborative group of people that are truly passionate about cannabis.

As a new member to NACB, I have enjoyed the connectivity and support shown by the association. Within national and global platforms, there is a need to "Due Diligence" on each aspect of this newly governed industry.  The National Association of Cannabis Business provides sound investigation of its participants and helps sculpt a trustworthy standard in which all cannabis businesses should adhere to.  I look forward to being able to further incite honorable alliances and assist each other as we navigate the molding of a world changing industry.

The NACB’s National Standards are the gold standard for doing business in the cannabis industry. I would advise all cannabis businesses who want to operate at the highest level of ethics and responsibility to review each of these standards carefully and put operating protocols in place to ensure compliance Self-regulation through adherence to the NACB National Standards is one of the best ways to protect your business and build trust.

I joined the NACB because I wanted to be part of an organized cannabis business networking group.  I feel that the NACB is a very professional organization connecting those in the industry via informative webinars, in person events and just providing a collaborative forum for its members.  Ashley does a fantastic job in managing this entire process.  I have connected with a few members and developed more extensive business relationships.

Christopher D. Mandracchia, Esq.
Attorney at Law

As a lawyer in a highly regulated industry without much precedent, the NACB has been very helpful. National Standards are needed in the cannabis industry to ensure safety and quality. The tools and resources provided by the NACB, especially during this pandemic, have been very helpful to my business. I have participated in the review of standards that have been established and adopted by the NACB. The process was great, and I learned a lot from others in the process. I hope NACB continues to advocate and re-educate the public about cannabis. I am very thankful to be a part of this great cannabis association.
