About the Financial Side of the Flower.
Newly Legal and Extremely Lucrative.
As members of the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association, we’re building solid relationships across the industry, helping cannabis companies with cannabis accounting, meeting CRA compliance requirements and developing plans for future growth. We have the team and technology to provide customized services within each license category – including software solutions for vertically-integrated organizations with multiple licenses.
We brought Maner in to help with interim CFP services nearly a year ago. They quickly became an integral part of our team, helping guide the decisions made by our leadership group and ensuring goals and business strategy aren’t created in a vacuum.

We know your challenges and can develop solutions to solve them.
