The current state of the industry is one where information asymmetry is so pronounced that it prevents most participants from having a real opportunity to capture the strategic opportunities on which they need to act to succeed.

With the formation of the NACB and the democratization of access to the crucial information necessary for growth and by improving strategic industry connectivity, the NACB helps our valuable members overcome countless hurdles that prevent the industry from efficiently functioning in prosperity and equity.
At NACB, we offer unmatched connectivity solutions through access to our vetted cannabis stakeholder community, events, webinars and engagement activities. Additionally, we offer carefully curated market insights to keep our members informed with the intelligence needed to formulate the best strategies.

The NACB’s membership platform results from continuous conversations with our members on how best to support them as they lead the industry towards a prosperous and equitable future. We achieve this by providing resources and insights that drive achievement, innovation, and impact.
