About Us

Who We Are

The Cannabis Business Association of Virginia (CannaBizVA) was formed as a non-profit, 501(c)(6)* industry/trade association to advocate for the expansion and protection of existing pharmaceutical, retail, and agricultural hemp and cannabis markets to ensure the highest quality, safest and cost-effective products and services are readily accessible to patients and consumers in Virginia.


The mission of CannaBizVA is to advance legislation, regulation and implementation that will support and grow Virginia’s regulated cannabis industries.

We seek to expand and promote existing pharmaceutical, retail and agricultural markets by representing the collective interests of farmers, pharmaceutical processors, retail vendors, ancillary businesses and other stakeholders.

Through collaboration with state and local governments, our membership will grow Virginia’s cannabis industries in a sustainable manner; foster a competitive, thriving marketplace; and encourage businesses throughout the Commonwealth to cultivate, manufacture, process and sell the finest products available.
