Our Philadelphia cannabis banking services are unparalleled in the region, including checking and savings accounts, online banking, consumer payments, electronic tax payment, direct deposit payroll, and much more.

Access marijuana banking in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is one of the oldest cities in the United States, with a storied history going back before the nation’s founding. Its relationship with cannabis is equally as complicated.

Despite the recreational use of cannabis being illegal throughout Pennsylvania, the medical use of cannabis was legalized on April 17, 2016. Moreover, there has been a steady push toward full legalization with the decriminalization of up to 30 grams of cannabis throughout much of the state.

For cannabis-related businesses in Philadelphia, this limbo can mean it’s even harder to access financial services than comparable businesses in states where recreational use is also legal. 

We believe all cannabis-related businesses should have access to cannabis banking in Philadelphia. Whether your company is involved in hemp, CBD, cannabis/marijuana, or cultivation, dispensing, or manufacturing cannabis-related goods, we offer our full range of financial services – especially as the legal landscape evolves.

What kinds of cannabis businesses can access your financial services? +

Cannabis businesses like dispensaries are prime targets for robberies and fraud. With little to no access to cannabis banking in Philadelphia, businesses must pay taxes and wages, bookkeep, and pay for supplies, all in cash. That has to change.

With SHF, you can reduce your risk from criminal activity, increase the efficiency of your business, and pay all bills and taxes with ease.
