Cannabis Laboratory Business Insurance

Why do cannabis labs need insurance?

Your cannabis lab is responsible for the quality and safety of marijuana, CBD, and edibles, which exposes you to lawsuits. Business insurance provides financial protection if a customer suffers an adverse reaction to marijuana, or if a fire breaks out at your lab. Some policies may be required by state law.
