In Abrigo's recent industry survey of 300+ financial institutions, 33% stated they are currently providing services to CRBs or are considering banking CRBs. Whether or not your institution plans on banking cannabis- or marijuana-related businesses (CRBs/MRBs), our CRB solutions help you navigate the complexities of this ever-changing industry.
Compliance While Banking CRBs
Although cannabis is now legal – either medically or recreationally – in the majority of states today, it remains illegal on a federal level, hamstringing cannabis-related businesses (CRBs) from accessing traditional financial accounts. As more states continue legalizing cannabis, the onus is on financial institutions to complete thorough due diligence and know their customers/members that cross state lines for services.Play Video
