Legal marijuana businesses are a new and controversial sector, but they are businesses nonetheless and operators can get real benefits from specialized insurance policies.
As with any business, you’ll need to protect your property against damage from risks such as fire and theft. Check carefully to make sure your products are covered in transit, such as between a cannabis farm and a storage facility. It’s also worth looking at coverage that pays out for lost income and profits rather than simply the cost of the raw materials.
Liability issues are also important with marijuana insurance. This includes general liability insurance that protects against incidents such as a visitor to your facility being injured, and product liability insurance that kicks in if you are sued over your products.
You’ll need to check policy conditions carefully. Often it’s a condition of the insurance that you comply with all local laws, regulations and licensing. Note that the insurance conditions for medical marijuana may differ from those for recreational marijuana.
