Experienced bookkeepers, accountants, and tax professionals, are needed in a big way to service the cannabis niche. If you're ready to get started, click below.
we’d like for you to take a moment to imagine...
Take yourself out of your current situation as an accounting professional, and imagine a scenario where you aren’t being told what you are worth as a professional (by your boss, employer, clients, colleagues, etc).
Where you aren’t being undercut because “someone else can do it cheaper.”
Where you’re able to choose your clients and who you work with, versus taking what you can get.
Where you’re working with clients and projects that are challenging, yet exciting because you are able to attribute how your work creates value in their business.
Where you’re known as THE EXPERT in one of the fastest growing industries in the country.
The choice is yours, and that choice looks like becoming a DOPE CANNABIS ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONAL.
AND you will confidently be able to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE, and WOW your CEO clients every month!
You see, the reality is that of the 9,000+ legally licensed cannabis businesses, the majority of them have inexperienced and untrained bookkeepers that simply aren’t able to do the complex cost and accrual accounting required.
They don’t understand how to navigate 280e and 471 tax rules, which is dangerous for such an audit prone industry. Leaving these businesses open to huge fines and penalties, and most important, leaving LOTS OF money on the table for these companies.
A simple email or a phone call from a professional like you, that has the resources and can create the results that come from a program like ours, is what this industry needs. We are providing the EXACT SYSTEM that we, and others that have successfully completed our training, have used to:
…and so much more.

Our DIY Accounting for Cannabis Training Program is for seasoned accounting professionals (bookkeepers, tax professionals, Controllers, CFOs, CPAs, etc) who are looking to build a cannabis accounting practice, or to add the expertise and services to their existing business.
The goal of the program is to give you the tools that you need in order to get up and running quickly, which includes:
We provide our proven system for how we prospect QUALIFIED cannabis CEOs, and land clients that pay us $1000+/month for our services. We bill on value and never cost perhour.
Even if you hate sales, and marketing isn’t your skill set, don’t worry. If you follow our system which includes emails, sales scripts, and offer letter templates, you will have what you need in order to help you land YOUR FIRST, cannabis client.
So our messaging is specifically crafted in such a way that you attract the clients that will benefit most from your help and support.
In terms of providing support to your clients, we give you every tool that you will need in order to provide WORLD-CLASS SERVICE to their business, and WOW them with your expertise, even if you do not have an accounting degree.
Our program has templates that were developed by licensed CPAs with over 20 years of experience. Many of these documents have been reviewed by cannabis attorneys, and have been used to provide services to complex businesses (and of course cannabis companies) of all shapes and sizes.
Most important, they are specifically tailored to the various cannabis entity types. These documents and templates include:
SPECIFIC to grows/farms, dispensaries, and complex entities.
Note: Quickbooks and other common systems DO NOT have cannabis chart of accounts.
Highly detailed template file with reconciliations and tie outs of every balance sheet and P&L account, which are tied from source documents to:
These month end files help ensure your client is consistently “AUDIT READY,” with a “perpetual data room” available for auditors, lenders, investors, acquirers, partners, and tax preparers.
Our chart of accounts are tailored to the needs of various cannabis entities including chemical/extract, grow, and dispensary so that you can easily do correct cost accounting each month.
We provide detailed instructions, examples, videos, templates and actual workpapers, to acquire the operating data needed each month in order to perform correct cost accounting.
These are the end of the year allocation workpapers that you use to make your transition from GAAP to Tax Accounts, including allocations between cannabis and non-cannabis divisions and ties directly to tax return cost of goods sold schedules (COGS).
While you are providing TONS of value making sure your client’s accounting practices are following IRS and state license rules, the value that you are providing to the CEO is EXTREMELYimportant.
On top of all this, we provide client “value-add” documents that give your client so much more and really separates DOPE ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONALS from the pack.
With these documents, you will be empowering CEOs with critical information that will help them better understand how to make educated decisions about their business. You will be able to show them how your are saving them money… so much so, that your fees can be absorbed in the money that they are saving.
These documents (and instruction) include:
...and so much more.
The stakes are incredibly high. There are a number of financial challenges that cannabis CEO must overcome in order to be successful.
With state and federal compliance rules making such a booming industry produce razor thin profits, DOPE ACCOUNTING PROFESSIONALS are the missing piece that will allow CEOs and investors to protect their licensure and their investments.
