Even now, more than 3 years following legalization, Canada is still home to hundreds of legacy businesses that are only able to access the illicit market. With years of experience, dedication, personal investment, and top-quality ingredients, it’s difficult for some to understand why this delay still persists, but there are several reasons behind it, and it’s not that these businesses aren’t dreaming about making legal money alongside their licensed competitors.

So much to offer

Legacy producers, growers, employees, and retail stores are still making the transition to the regulated market, and it’s not always an easy task for operators unfamiliar with what it takes to make it here and succeed. Legacy operations can be massive, or they can be small, but they all have a loyal brand following and a winning product that works. Unfortunately, almost every legacy operator lacks some key things to make the leap from the black market like:

  • experience in dealing with regulations and licensing
  • an understanding of compliant packaging
  • safe and tested product/hardware
  • compliant and child-proof packaging
  • access to legal distribution channels
  • compliant product formulations

Filling the gaps

Final Bell helps legacy-to-legal operators fill all these gaps, and there are many great examples out there of brands that are now thriving in legal cannabis thanks to their help. Angelina Blessed is one major success story, launching a small line of health-inspired edibles that just needed a slight push in the right direction before being introduced on the legal market. They also assisted SHERBINKIS, a popular large-scale California brand, come to Canada – by guiding them through all specific regulations and requirements that are much different in Canada than they are in the Golden State.
