LAS VEGAS — CTrust, the first credit scoring and monitoring agency for cannabis businesses, announces at MJBizCon a new collaboration with Green Check, a leading fintech connector and technology and insights provider in the emerging cannabis market. The partnership augments Green Check’s cannabis financial solutions marketplace with built-in credit scoring for businesses seeking financial products to support their operations.

“Green Check’s pursuit of expanding opportunities for cannabis businesses and the financial institutions that serve them made the company a natural partner for CTrust,” said Dotan Y. Melech, CEO of CTrust. “We’re able to deliver unique credit scoring and monitoring that simplifies the process and reduces risk for both cannabis and financial companies looking to engage in business opportunities. These are the fundamental elements needed to bring meaningful, transparent commerce to the cannabis industry going forward.”


CTrust’s evaluation process generates a quantitative investment risk indicator known as the Cannabis Trust Score (CTS). The CTS serves as a valuable tool for lenders and borrowers, aiding them in risk assessment and debt structuring with variable interest rates. This approach aligns the risk taken by both lenders and borrowers with the associated cost of capital.

“Adding CTrust’s scoring to our Green Check Connect marketplace provides a valuable, trusted third-party that both cannabis businesses and financial institutions can rely on to help properly evaluate risk and make sound business decisions,” said Kevin Hart, CEO of Green Check. “Green Check always puts transparency and visibility front and center. This new offering from CTrust enhances our ability to deliver both and ensure compliance across the board.”

CTrust’s rigorous evaluation process includes over 1,764 touch points across 42 business categories including, but not limited to, business operations processes, accounting and financials, products and services, management and culture, and branding and public relations.
