Ancillary business

A business that provides products or services for the cannabis industry but does not touch the plant. Examples of ancillary businesses include: light, electrical, or construction companies, packaging companies, legal firms, security firms, tax services, companies that create accessories, marketing and tech companies, and more.

“I started getting a lot of indoor grow contracts with my electrical company when the state legalized weed—now it’s mainly an ancillary business in the cannabis industry.”
