Cannabis Governance = Emotional Intelligence for Cannabis Companies

Cannabis governance is emotional intelligence for the cannabis industry.  It facilitates a high level of awareness and responsiveness to a company’s internal and external audiences.

Cannabis governance employs the principles necessary for cannabis companies to be transparent and accountable. This leads to improved regulatory compliance and greater social responsibility engagement.  Given the strong correlation between corporate social responsibility and profitability, a company is much better positioned to financially outperform its competitors once cannabis governance is adopted.

Cannabis Governance: Maintaining Investor Confidence

Good corporate governance is essential in order for cannabis companies to weather the extreme volatility surrounding cannabis stocks in the capital markets.  As the cannabis industry experience explosive growth and the investor base morphs from retail to institutional, the pressure to have proper governance infrastructure in place will intensify.  Institutional investors demand independence, transparency, and accountability from Boards and at times take action to bring such demands to fruition.  Having a proper governance structure in place helps to ward off disruptions by activist investors.  The winners in the cannabis industry will be those that are able to put systems and processes in place that garner the support and confidence of both retail and institutional investors.
