What are the insurance requirements for cannabis businesses?

As legalization of marijuana spreads, each state is establishing its own laws for cannabis insurance.

State laws typically require general liability insurance for all businesses in the cannabis industry, from cultivators to dispensaries. You'll need to research the laws in your state to find out how much general liability coverage you need.

Many states require cannabis businesses to carry a surety bond as part of their licensing requirements. A bond guarantees that your business will fulfill the terms of its contracts and pay its suppliers.

The specifics of your cannabis operations will determine other types of insurance coverage you need. For example, a landlord may require you to carry commercial property coverage.
