Experience unparalleled marijuana banking in Buffalo

Buffalo’s cannabis industry is thriving following the legalization of medicinal and recreational use. Several dispensaries and other cannabis-related businesses have opened, supporting the local economy in New York State’s second-biggest city.

Despite the legalization, cannabis companies can still find accessing financial services difficult – some even being forced to pay their obligations in cash. 

Here at Safe Harbor Financial, we’re dedicated to supporting the growing cannabis industry in Buffalo. Moreover, we understand the need to diversify and innovate as more businesses join the cannabis industry rush. With Niagara Falls and Canada’s biggest cities on Buffalo’s doorstep, there’s strong potential for a booming cannabis trade, from tourism to edibles.

However, first and foremost, businesses need financial services and investment. Without the ability to take consumer payments or raise loans, businesses are unlikely to succeed in this competitive environment.

It’s not just cannabis companies. We’re also keen to provide hemp banking in Buffalo, helping businesses involved in growing, processing, or manufacturing hemp products.

Why should I choose Safe Harbor for cannabis banking in Buffalo? +

Safe Harbor Financial has extensive experience helping businesses grow and thrive following legalization. We helped pioneer cannabis banking in Colorado; now, we’re ready to provide personalized marijuana banking in Buffalo. 

Furthermore, in the absence of high-quality financial services, businesses must either trade exclusively in cash, increasing the risk of theft or fraud, or turn to the dishonest, disreputable lenders and financial organizations that use underhand tactics to secure financing for cannabis businesses. 

In contrast, SHF has a strong reputation for regulatory compliance working alongside regulators, legislators, and law enforcement to stay abreast of changes in financial rules for marijuana banking in Buffalo.
