Cannabis Business Times (CBT) was founded in July 2014. Its focus is to help accelerate the success of legal cannabis cultivators by providing actionable intelligence in all aspects of the business, from legislation, regulation and compliance news to analysis of industry trends and opportunities, as well as expert advice on cultivation, marketing, financial topics, legal issues, business management and more.

CBT focuses strictly on the business of legal cannabis for medical and recreational use and aims to provide timely information—through its website, e-newsletter, mobile app, print magazine and conference—to help the reader make timely, informed decisions to help them run their businesses better and more profitably. It is the only national business magazine to serve the cannabis cultivator exclusively.
