What Is a Cannabis Business Lawyer?
A cannabis business lawyer (sometimes also called a marijuana business attorney or a hemp business lawyer) focuses on helping cannabis entrepreneurs through the process of starting a legal cannabis business. Those businesses may include a variety of marijuana industries, such as CBD, hemp, marijuana, or other cannabis-related products.
Cannabis business lawyers may sometimes come from another background, such as business law, contractual law, civil or business litigation, or trademarks, and focus their knowledge and background on helping marijuana entrepreneurs with the extensive and often complicated steps to stay compliant with all federal and state-level regulations and enter the cannabis industry. A cannabis business law practice often deals with a variety of tasks that may include transactional work, intellectual property, real estate matters, and others. A cannabis business attorney should be well-versed in general business and start-up aspects as well as in specific regulations and statutes that govern the sale of cannabis products locally and at a federal level.
What Can a Cannabis Business Lawyer Help With?
Opening a cannabis business that is fully compliant requires significant work and careful steps to ensure all aspects of the business and its operations are in accordance with the law. This often means a business owner needs extensive paperwork, licensing, and regulatory expertise – a task that is overwhelming and time-consuming for most. A cannabis business attorney can help with every step of opening and running a new cannabis business. At Davis Legal, PLLC, some of those services include:
- Manufacturing matters
- Business formation
- Dispute resolution
Our practice caters to a variety of cannabis businesses – from cultivators, extractors, and dispensaries to manufacturers and distributors. We serve clients in Raleigh and all across Eastern North Carolina, providing cannabis business legal services and advice.

Do I Really Need to Work With a Cannabis Business Lawyer to Start My Business?
By now, you are probably aware of how the cannabis industry is heavily regulated in many states. In addition, while marijuana and cannabis products are legal in some states, marijuana is still considered an illegal substance under federal law. If you are planning to enter the legal cannabis industry, it may be hard – if not impossible – to try and navigate the extensive set of laws that affect your business. A minor oversight could result in major negative consequences because of the contradictions between state and federal laws.
When you work with a cannabis business lawyer, not only can you receive solid business-related legal advice, but you can also get help navigating all the statutes, compliance requirements, and regulations that are needed to start and operate a legal cannabis business. In North Carolina (as in many other states), the cannabis laws are constantly evolving, and as the state begins to consider legalizing medical marijuana, an attorney can help you be prepared to seize the opportunity that the NC market may bring.
