Cannabis Manufacturer Business Insurance

Why do cannabis manufacturers need business insurance?

If a customer suffers an adverse reaction to an edible or other cannabis product, escalating legal costs could shutter your factory. Business insurance provides a financial safety net against lawsuits, fires, and injuries. Some policies, such as general liability insurance, may be required by state law.
