Allay Cannabis Consulting
About the Owner

Kimberly Stuck was the first Marijuana Specialist for the Denver Department of Environmental Health and therefore the first Marijuana Specialist for a public health authority in the Nation. Conducting compliance inspections, license sign offs, running pesticide investigations, writing press releases, conducting recalls, conducting shelf stability and CBD source approvals, she’s done it all. The industry lovingly started calling her the “weed-whacker” primarily because she has disposed of ~28 million dollars of Cannabis/ Cannabis products in 2016 alone due to non-compliance. She has greatly helped Colorado develop requirements and has also helped California Department of Public Health (CDPH) develop their regulations. She has knowledge of all local, state and federal cannabis and health regulations. During the years as a regulator she grew a love for the industry and the people in it. While working as a regulator she noticed a huge gap in the industry when it came to Compliance Consultants. She knew she could make a huge difference and save Cannabis companies millions through active preventative measures if she started her own company, and has been named one of the 13 women who will help shape the cannabis industry. With the support of the Industry she decided to launch Allay Cannabis Consulting.  Allay Cannabis Consulting’s goal is to help the cannabis industry thrive on a global scale.

How We Work

Baseline Assessments

The Baseline Assessment is the first part of any engagement with Allay. By, venturing out to your facility for the first time, we aim to understand your goals, processes and get an idea of where you stand from a compliance perspective. At the same time, we recognize that each business faces different challenges. TThe Baseline Assessment is a compliance audit and is our opportunity to develop a plan for compliance, specifically tailored for you. 

Customizable Packages

After conducting a Baseline Assessment of a facility, our consultants will work with your company to build a package that fits your needs. While our packages always include a monthly site visit/ inspection, followed up by a comprehensive compliance report, any projects your company needs can be easily added either by reserving blocks of time or by going hourly.

Hourly Professional Services

If your company is unsure of scope, or simply has project or two that need attention, Allay can easily create an hourly plan. Ultimately, it is our job to make sure the product you create ends up in stores, not disposed of. While our hourly rate is usually the more expensive option, it can be beneficial in light of unforeseen or urgent situations, to ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
