The Cannabis Business Association of Illinois (CBAI) is a statewide non-profit association that serves as the voice of Illinois’ cannabis industry by advocating for patient well-being, consumer safety, greater equity and inclusion, job creation, community investment and the responsible use of cannabis.
CBAI represents more than 80% of all Illinois cannabis businesses licensed by the state of Illinois, as well as ancillary businesses that support the cannabis industry and social equity applicants. We promote the growth of the Illinois cannabis economy by:
- Building long-term relationships between industry leaders and policymakers
- Educating policymakers about industry operations and policies critical to the competitiveness of the industry
- Providing a platform for cannabis industry applicants and job-seekers to network with established cultivators, dispensaries and industry experts.
