Safe Harbor Financial was founded in 2015 to serve cannabis-related businesses that were severely underbanked by the existing status quo. Due to the federal prohibition against cannabis, major financial institutions are unwilling to provide even basic financial services to cannabis-related businesses – irrespective of the state’s legality. 

Enter Safe Harbor Financial. We’re an industry-leading institution, bridging this divide and ensuring cannabis-related businesses in dire need of banking can secure the relevant services. Even better, we’ve earned a reputation for personalized banking and impeccable regulatory advice. 

Our San Diego cannabis banking services include checking and savings accounts, online banking, consumer payments, electronic tax payments, direct deposit payroll, and more.

In addition to our role in the burgeoning recreational and medical cannabis industries, we also provide CBD and hemp banking in San Diego. No matter the sector of the cannabis industry, our personal bankers and expert team have the knowhow to deliver our unparalleled banking solutions. 

Let our team bring your vision to life – join Safe Harbor Financial today.

Experience unmatched marijuana banking in San Diego

California, and by extension San Diego, is at the forefront of cannabis legalization in the US. Marijuana has been legal for medical use since 1996 and for recreational use since late 2016. As such, the cannabis industry in San Diego is among the most mature in the country, boasting hundreds of businesses, from dispensaries, biotech firms, cultivators, manufacturers, ancillary businesses, and more.

Catering to these businesses, we’re one of the few cannabis banking firms with the relevant experience and expertise suitable to the thriving industry. Indeed, we were instrumental in bringing Colorado’s fledgling cannabis industry to maturity – now, we’re sharing our insights for cannabis banking in San Diego.

Under our guidance, enterprises can trade safe in the knowledge that they’re 100% regulatory compliant. In fact, we liaise with regulators, legislators, and law enforcement to ensure we deliver the most up-to-date assistance and advice. 

With further legal changes, such as the Cannabis Appellations Program, continuing to reshape the industry, you need a financial institution ready to evolve with the times – you need Safe Harbor Financial.

Why is marijuana banking in San Diego important? +
