Regulations and Compliance

The Office of Medical Cannabis requires all licensees to use Metrc’s seed to sale tracking system to ensure that medical cannabis and cannabis products are safely tracked and monitored prior to sale.

Companies who engage in commercial cannabis activity must use Metrc, the state-designated cannabis tracking system, to track, record, and report inventory. 

Because remaining compliant includes tracking and reporting everything down to the gram, automation is essential for saving time and cutting costs. Implementing an ERP system designed for the regulations and supply chain of the cannabis industry will help your business survive and thrive.
