Cannabis Business Office Mission and Vision


To provide equitable access to resources to start and build businesses within the booming Colorado cannabis industry. By providing these resources, a broader set of individuals may take the first steps to creating economic prosperity for their families and communities. We expect to see significant economic growth in disproportionately impacted areas, for individuals who have been excluded from participating in the cannabis industry, and those who have lacked equitable access to financial and technical resources required to start or grow a business.

By working collaboratively with other OEDIT divisions, state agencies, and the private sector, we can leverage all available resources to empower individuals across the state.
