While most of the conversation around the new market for recreational cannabis in New Jersey has focused around the laws and regulations, there is an exciting group of entrepreneurs looking to make their marks on this nascent industry — and a host of new businesses that are expected to join the Hoboken + Jersey City scenes soon. Here in Hudson County, there are several local businessmen and women who see the new market as full of opportunities to own their own businesses, serve their community, and change the conversation around marijuana.

The Jersey City Cannabis Control Board convened for the first time in a month on Sept. 12 to process the next round of retail cannabis applicants in the city before them.
In total, the board approved four applicants and denied three. The four approved included Aunt Mary’s in McGinley Square; Bud Space, Cream Dispensary and Cannaboutique by Greenhouse, who are all in Downtown.
The board also denied Canabee, who would’ve been located in the Heights, and two other applicants, Artistic Dispensary and Idyllx, for being too similar to each other.
