CRB Monitor Database: Charting Growth

An influx of new licensing data from New York caused our charts to climb to new heights. Tier 1A cannabis-related businesses jumped by 4,297 to 82,141. Pre-licenses more than doubled to 10,401. There was also an increase of 287 beneficial owners.

Tier 1 Cannabis-Related Business Counts

1A MRB-060324
Tier 1A defined: Businesses in this tier literally touch the cannabis plant at some point along the supply chain from "seed to sale," and are generally licensed by a government agency or regulator. Effectively all of their actual or expected revenue is derived from the cultivation, production, testing or sale of cannabis. 

1B CRBs 

1B MRB-060324
Tier 1B defined: Businesses that have a financial or controlling interest in a Tier 1A CRB. CRB Monitor generally considers 1B businesses as seemingly unrelated businesses highlighted as red flags by FinCEN in its marijuana banking guidance and are similar in nature to individual beneficial owners.
