Colorado Marijuana License Bond

UPDATED NOTICE: As of August 10, 2015, we are no longer able to issue marijuana license bonds in Colorado as a result of the racketeering lawsuits filed earlier this year.

We apologize for the continued changes surrounding these bond types recently. We do hope to resume offering marijuana bonding services soon. Our team will continue to post information here and on our blog regarding these changes. Sign up below to receive updates and be the first to know when and if we are able to offer these bonds again.

How much does a marijuana license bond cost in Colorado?

Colorado marijuana license bond amounts vary depending on the exact bond type that is required. The state requires both retail and medical dispensaries to post specific, separate bonds in the amount of $5,000. Retail dispensaries need an additional retail excise tax bond. Various county and city governments require their own bond forms in addition to those required for licensing at the state level. Prices are determined based on underwriting consideration, which includes a review of the applicant’s credit report.
