Insuring cannabis cultivators, processors, and retailers requires industry expertise. The cannabis industry is emerging and adequate coverage is not easily found for these businesses. While many mainstream carriers will not insure your business, we have established a wide range of financially stable, national insurance brands that will.

When it comes to insuring a business within the marijuana industry, one size does not “fit all.” Our Cannabis Insurance Specialists will take the time to discover your needs and find the best coverage options within your budget. Think of us as your insurance concierge. We will do the time consuming research for you, handle all the details and negotiate on your behalf to make sure that your business is adequately covered.
