Florida’s medical cannabis market is booming. In the fast-growing market, cannabis business organizations are helping first-time and seasoned business owners navigate the rules and regulations, and challenges of the state’s budding industry.

In today’s competitive business landscape, business owners and stakeholders need expert guidance from industry professionals. The Florida Cannabis Coalition aims to create a community of passionate and knowledgeable entrepreneurs.

What Is the Florida Cannabis Coalition?

Founded in 2014, the Florida Cannabis Coalition (FCC) is the state’s biggest medical cannabis business organization, with over 1,000 members. For an annual fee ranging from $100 to $5,000, FCC members gain access to networking events, meetups, and conferences.

The Florida Cannabis Coalition offers members online classes, networking events and conferences, and in-person workshops to empower Floridians with knowledge about cannabis business and science.

The Florida Cannabis Coalition helps startups and established cannabis businesses reach their goals through cannabis education on business and science topics. The organization can help people learn about the following industry topics:

  • Networking
  • Licensing
  • Business Plans
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Brand Building
  • Accounting
  • Legal

State of Florida’s Cannabis Market

Florida is one of the country’s largest medical cannabis markets, with plenty of room for growth. In 2021, the state’s medical cannabis market brought in $1.5 billion in sales (22% sales growth from the previous year) and added 8,895 full-time jobs to reach a total of 25,895 jobs.

For now, only legal medical marijuana is legal. However, many legalization efforts have been attempted to legalize cannabis for adult use. State activists are currently focusing on putting adult-use legalization bills on the 2024 ballot.

If you want to stay ahead of the game, working with an experienced consulting agency can help you stand out from the state’s fast-growing MMJ market. Florida has so much more room for growth for entrepreneurs and job seekers.

Florida Cannabis Events

The Florida Cannabis Coalition’s Green Carpet Events company has put on over 100 industry events in 30 Florida cities over the years, including the Miami Beach Hemp & Health Expo, the CannaDay Medical Marijuana Conference and Expo, and the Tampa Green Carpet Cannabis Business Networking Event.

Cannabis companies looking to meet other like-minded people in the industry have attended these events. The FCC’s industry events bring together several vital sectors of the cannabis industry to empower Florida’s market as a whole.
