We founded Safe Harbor Financial in 2015 to save the cannabis industry from the underbanking crisis. Because of the federal prohibition of cannabis, major financial institutions are reluctant to serve cannabis-related businesses (CRBs) – due to excessive paperwork and prosecution fears.

Over the past seven years, we’ve helped bridge this divide, serving hundreds of CRBs nationwide. We’ve earned a reputation for bespoke financial services tailored to the needs of the burgeoning cannabis industry. Nor is our expertise confined to recreational cannabis. We’re industry leaders in medical marijuana, CBD, and hemp banking in Dubuque and beyond.

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

Safe Harbor Financial delivers regulatory guidance and financial services like no other financial institution. Become a member by speaking to our team – we’re ready to elevate your business.

Experience top-class marijuana banking in Dubuque

Located at the junction of Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin (the Tri-State Area), the aptly named “Key City” serves as the region’s commercial, industrial, and cultural hub. Its economy is thriving, diversifying into healthcare, tourism, publishing, and financial services.

For CRBs, it’s a prime location to set up and expand. However, recreational cannabis remains illegal in Iowa (despite shifting public opinion). Medical marijuana and CBD are legal for sale, as is hemp (defined as cannabis with 0.3% or less of THC), following the Iowa Hemp Act of 2019.

With America’s agricultural heartland on its doorstep, there are numerous opportunities for established CRBs and cannabis entrepreneurs – especially considering feral hemp grows wild throughout the state. What’s needed is an experienced cannabis financial institution to help guide the fledgling industry to maturity. We’ve done it before. 

We consider ourselves more than a cannabis bank; we’re part of the community. After helping hundreds of CRBs thrive, we’re here to share our services with Dubuque.
