As far as cannabis is concerned, there are three basic types of business models to follow:

1. Delivery Model:

It is a service-based business model, where you are only concerned with the delivery of marijuana. While other business processes are not of concern.

2. Retail Model:

Here, you can leverage both the parts of business- delivery & sales. A retail store can help you sell your cannabis directly to your consumer and even keep the delivery side of your business. It will help you gain profits from delivery charges as well.

3. Platform Model
