Enjoy success with marijuana banking in Albany

As the capital of New York State, Albany was at the heart of the movement toward the legalization of marijuana. The bill was signed into law on March 31, 2021, with the first legal sales likely to occur sometime in 2022 or 2023.

Currently, entrepreneurs and cannabis connoisseurs are hoping to gain recreational cannabis licenses and open dispensaries, cultivation businesses, and more. This upcoming cannabis boom will be a healthy addition to the already successful CBD and hemp business in Albany and the surrounding area. However, without adequate marijuana and hemp banking in Albany, local cannabis businesses are unlikely to succeed.

That’s where Safe Harbor Financial comes in.

After helping the fledgling Colorado cannabis scene develop, SHF is one of the few cannabis banking firms to have the experience, knowledge, and capacity to deliver unparalleled cannabis banking in Albany. 

Indeed, we consider ourselves a part of every community we’re engaged in. Using our seven years of experience, we’re ready to transform Albany’s cannabis banking.

Why is marijuana banking in Albany important? +

Without marijuana banking in Albany, businesses are forced to rely solely on cash transactions. Not only does that complicate bookkeeping it also increases the risk of theft and fraud. Criminals are increasingly aware that dispensaries and other similar businesses are cash-rich – meaning business owners must pay for additional protection, staff training, and even armored vans.
