Navigating the complex regulatory and legal structures governing the marijuana industry is a headache for all cannabis-related businesses (CRBs). While California’s liberalization has opened doors for numerous CRBs, federal prohibition prevents access to major financial institutions.

It’s a frustrating dilemma for cannabis companies, forced to either operate in cash, turn to disreputable financial organizations, or misrepresent the nature of their businesses.

The answer is Safe Harbor Financial.

After seven years of serving the industry, we’ve managed over 600 accounts, processed more than $12 billion in cannabis-related funds, and operated in 20 states.

Our expertise runs through all sectors of the cannabis industry – and we’re also providing marijuana, CBD, and hemp banking in San Francisco.

We deliver unmatched marijuana banking in San Francisco

California is at the forefront of the liberalization of cannabis laws – both medical and recreational. Nowhere is that truer than in San Francisco. For example, in 2019, the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival became the first major music festival to offer legal cannabis for sale. 

Such innovations mark the region out as a major market for cannabis entrepreneurs – but only if they can access the capital and financial services necessary to succeed.

That’s where we come in.

Having already guided Colorado’s cannabis industry to maturity, we understand the innovations, drive, and enterprising attitude needed to succeed. With further legislative efforts like the “Cannabis Appellations Program” offering new opportunities for cannabis-related businesses, we’re here to take your business to the next level.
