KIND’s Technology Platform provides an ecosystem of easy-to-use, end-to-end solutions for cannabis businesses, empowering them to manage compliance, process transactions online, accept cash-free payments, and provide financial institutions with the data needed to service the cannabis industry. Our mission is to help cannabis businesses transact like any other industry.
1. A regulatory technology and compliance company exclusively focused on marijuana industry
KIND’s business model capitalizes on the growth of the industry while protecting itself from the legal ambiguity surrounding this industry by not “touching” the plant directly.
2. No Geographic Restrictions
This is unique in this industry because every state has their own unique laws. Since KIND doesn’t directly trade or operate with any cannabis containing products, we are able to operate freely in all 50 states, as well as other venues around the globe including Canada, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Australia, Uruguay, and Guam.
