On June 19, 2020, HBCannU became the first 100% Black-Owned Cannabis Brand to be franchised. Since its humble beginnings in the Southeast U.S. (Florida and U.S. Virgin Islands), HBCannU has become one of the most prominent cultural leaders within the cannabis industry. Inspired by and rooted in the Marcus Garvey “Do For Self” Pan African philosophy, HBCannU has made it its mission to educate the public about the cannabis industry and the benefits of responsibly-sourced CBD products to revitalize black communities who have suffered from mass incarceration via the war on drugs. Franchising HBCannU’s philanthropic business model is our way of creating history, employment, and ownership opportunities for motivated individuals passionate about our mission to elevate the black communities’ ownership presence in this globally budding, legal cannabis industry.

The cannabis industry continues to lead the US job market as the fastest-growing industry within the United States. The global CBD market size was valued at USD 8.2 billion in 2019 and due to the Farm Bill being signed in late December 2018, the industry is projected to expand at a compound growth rate of 24.6% between 2020 to 2027. The signing of the Farm Bill also released $160 million in land grants which enabled HBCU’s around the nation the opportunity of legally entering into this globally budding space. With a passion to inform the public about the benefits of CBD, the market to operate a cannabis-based franchise makes franchising HBCannU an optimal investment for entrepreneurs. With Americans making the jump to CBD for an alternative remedy of relief for their ailments (physical or mental), the window is quickly closing to become your area’s staple for CBD relief and information for the culture
HBCannU’s franchise opportunities were designed to offer investors a turnkey business model with streamlined operations to help keep overhead expenses low. We’re offering single unit franchise opportunities as well as area development opportunities. The single-unit franchise option allows you to operate an HBCannU location in a protected territory of your choice. Our area development option grants you the ability to reserve a larger territory and build a series of HBCannU franchises at a mutually agreed upon pace to ensure longstanding growth and success.
It’s important that every HBCannU franchisee completes our detail-oriented training program. Not only will our training program prepare you for the operation of a cannabis-based franchise, but it will also provide you all the knowledge you need to inform your customers on all of their concerns regarding cannabis. Once you’ve completed the training program, you will learn how to operate all facets of the franchise, including product knowledge, managing inventory, staffing your HBCannU staff, bookkeeping, and marketing your location to drive in more business. Our HBCannU Franchise Support Team will see you through the entire process of your franchise development!
