Canna-Hub Business Park Concept
The Canna-Hub Business Community concept was created by founder, Tim McGraw. Seeing the early signs of a California land rush ignited by the new regulatory environment established by the passage of MMRSA, Tim immediately saw the value in being able to provide properly zoned property to cannabis licensees. Tim’s vision was of a large area where all sorts of operators (Cultivators, manufacturers, etc.) enjoy the enormous benefits of proximity. In his vision a manufacturer saves on transportation costs buying raw material to extract oil from his neighbor and consequently that extractor comfortably tests the product in the laboratory on site. Then they sell the extract to the edible factory across the street which completes the cycle by selling it to the distributor next door. Real synergies. Real savings. A one of a kind industrial cannabis community.
While pursuing his licenses in Illinois, Tim had a unique understanding of the challenges involved in the local entitlement process as well as the real estate requirements of an operator in the cannabis industry. He realized then that the best way to go about it was to engage first with local communities and government officials before looking for property.
Rather than undertaking the massive challenge of obtaining local zoning approval on a one-off basis for individual licensees, Tim envisioned a single location that could serve as the home for numerous cannabis licensees of all types, or a cannabis hub. A Canna-Hub Business Community provides a symbiotic environment of licensed cannabis operators and strong relationship between the operators and the host city.
The Canna-Hub business model allows licensees to move quickly through the construction phase to become operational, offers real cost saving synergies through the proximity to other interdependent licensees, and establishes the lowest local permitting fees in the state.
At the same time, the host city is a very willing and accommodating partner given the job creation and general economic stimulus, and with all cannabis related business activity confined to a single and secure location, compliance monitoring by both state and local authorities is easier and more effective.
We are excited about the many opportunities a Canna-Hub Business Community has to offer to all participants in California’s legal cannabis market. Contact us today to learn more about how to become a member of our Community.
