A Licensing Solution for the Cannabis and Hemp Industries

In 2019, NIC acquired Complia, a licensing solution for the cannabis and hemp industries. Since then, we have transformed the solution into the only platform designed specifically for government to license and regulate the cannabis and hemp industries.
