NASHVILLE, TN – June 1, 2022 – CRB Monitor, the nation’s leading provider of cannabis corporate intelligence, announced today its newly formed partnership with Green Check Verified (GCV), the leading fintech provider of compliant cannabis banking solutions and services. 

The partnership aims to improve integrated compliance for financial institutions and cannabis-related businesses. GCV will extend key components of CRB Monitor’s marijuana-related business and license database into its software and workflow solution to automate license verification and monitoring for violations, negative news, and other compliance red flags. 

Steven Kemmerling, Founder & CEO of CRB Monitor, commented, “CRB Monitor is excited to partner with Green Check Verified, which counts over 100 U.S. banks and credit unions as partners. Financial institutions rely upon Green Check Verified’s compliance software to more efficiently on-board CRBs and identify potential exceptions to regulatory requirements. As CRB Monitor monitors more than 62,000 licensed cannabis-related businesses and their 115,000 licenses in the U.S. and Canada, this integration is a natural fit to help increase the coverage, speed, accuracy, and efficiency of Green Check Verified’s solutions. Every week, CRB Monitor is adding thousands of businesses, licenses and owners to our database, which is a nearly impossible task for any one institution to manage.”

Kevin Hart, Founder and CEO of Green Check Verified said, “For years now, CRB Monitor has maintained the gold standard cannabis corporate intelligence database, so as the leading provider of compliant cannabis banking software, partnering made perfect sense. CRB Monitor empowers our partner financial institutions and service providers to understand, identify and manage cannabis-related risk and opportunity. Together, we can make significant strides to improve compliance for financial institutions and cannabis related businesses.”

Mike Kennedy, CoFounder and Chief Strategy Officer of Green Check Verified added, “Integrating CRB Monitor’s database into GCV’s software will help automate license verification and monitor for violations and other compliance red flags including credible negative news reports. Over the past year, GCV increased the number of cannabis-related businesses (CRB) on its platform by 270% and expanded its ability to offer FIs bespoke solutions for building their own cannabis products and service offerings. This partnership helps us better serve both sides of the market by reducing the time and effort required to maintain effective oversight of licensing status .”
