The inaugural edition of the Cannabis Banking Directory, dubbed “The Green Pages,” was put online this week as a free industry resource published by the PBC Conference team. The directory, downloadable here as a PDF, lists contact information for forty financial institutions that serve the cannabis industry across the U.S.
PBC Conference hosts an annual B2B conference on the cannabis banking ecosystem. The conference brings together executives in the cannabis banking industry, as well as those working across cannabis compliance, legislation, regulation and in ancillary businesses that address seed-to-sale tracking, cannabis data, 280E taxes, HR & Payroll and insurance.
PBC Conference CEO, Joshua Radbod, sums up the organization’s mission as “helping financial institutions, CRBs, government and partners find each other, connect and grow together.” The Cannabis Banking Directory is intended as a free industry tool to help cannabis operators find access to banking options. The company also offers strategic financial advice services.
Focused on payments, banking and compliance, the third annual PBC Conference will be held on September 7th – 8th of this year in Washington D.C. at the Capital Hilton Hotel. The two-day conference offers keynote addresses by legislators and top names in finance and cannabis, panel sessions and one-on-one’s with leading vendors. More information and registration is available at www.pbcconference.com
The company notes that the directory does not list additional cannabis-supporting financial institutions, with some choosing to not be listed for a variety of reasons, according to the company.
