Built for Cannabis.
Built for California.

Not only is California the largest cannabis market in the country, it’s faced with many challenges including heavy taxation, steep competition, and intense regulation.

To thrive in this rollercoaster environment, you’ve got to be thick-skinned, committed and resilient. And that’s who we are as well.

Pacific Valley Bank is a well-established California community bank that has served the state’s cannabis industry for over two years.

Abaca is a forward thinking, cannabis-focused digital platform that helps simplify and streamline your banking, payment and treasury management needs.

With Abaca x PVB, you get one account to rule them all.

Play by the Rules and Still Win in California

California has seen it all.

Abaca x PVB is with you for the long-haul. We’ll help you stay on top of your financial compliance while also delivering the streamlined ease-of-use you need to save time, save money, and ignite your potential.
