Many community banks are reluctant to service cannabis operators due to a lack of resources, technology or industry expertise.

That's where Dama comes in.

Benefits of banking cannabis

Providing financial services to cannabis operators allows you to:

Earn significant revenue

When you partner with Dama, you receive a revenue share and pay nothing in return.

Be part of the solution by servicing your community

State-legal cannabis is now an integral part of many localities, and these businesses are in desperate need of your services.

Increase public safety

Removing cash from the streets protects you and your neighbors by reducing the opportunity for criminal activity.

Grow your business and strengthen commercial relationships

Clients with multiple accounts and/or business interests will appreciate being able to keep their entire portfolio under your roof.

Build goodwill and boost customer retention

Allowing cannabis clients to operate transparently without fear of account shutdowns eliminates a major source of stress.

Peace of mind leads to customer loyalty and positive word of mouth.

FinCEN has provided guidance on how to bank cannabis, and the Department of Justice (through the Cole Memo priorities) specifically lays out expectations for federal prosecutors and law enforcement to follow in states with legal cannabis programs.

Servicing the cannabis industry offers enormous upside when you do the following:
