Every single day there are massive changes that reverberate throughout the legal cannabis industry. As marijuana becomes more and more accepted throughout the country, state and federal agencies are going to be making sure that they get their hands in on the process, thus perfecting it to streamline the new systems that are being put into place. If you work at a dispensary or own your own dispensary in California, you have a big new change coming your way in the form of California’s Track & Trace (CCTV) system. Today, we are going to be discussing how you can prepare your dispensary in order to handle these new regulations. We could call this Part 1 of 3: What California Dispensaries can do to prepare for Track and Trace. This will be one of our first discussions on the subject, so let’s begin.
Preparing for Track & Trace
California is going to be one of the largest states in the country when it comes to developing and pushing the cannabis industry forward. With that being said, that doesn’t mean that it will be easy for every company and dispensary in the state to succeed under the new regulations. Companies are going to have to really organize their approach in order to stay effective while improving relations with their clients. Let’s look at a few ways that companies can embrace these new regulations.
Use Cannabis Software
One of the easiest ways to improve your business while embracing the new CCTT laws is to add cannabis software to your company. There are many cannabis-focused retail systems on the market that help companies organize their inventory, track sales, and improve customer relations. With the right software on hand, you’ll be able to adhere to all state regulations while improving your own company’s standings in the industry. That’s a win-win situation.
Hire the Right Employees
If you’ve been on the fence about your roster, it might be time to shake things up in preparation for CCTT. Hiring the right employees to run your business is absolutely imperative to prolonged success and adherence to any new regulations. Hiring the right employees may be easier said than done but that doesn’t make it impossible. Take your time combing through resumes, don’t be afraid to hire outside of the industry, and always look into references while corroborating background checks. The right staff can elevate your company while maintaining your standing in the world of legal cannabis.
Cultivate Your Image
There are basically two kinds of dispensaries: those that embrace their role as pioneers of the industry and those that play everything fast and loose. Tighten up your culture, polish your image and prepare to give great products to your customers while adhering to all essential regulations.
The cannabis industry is going to grow by leaps and bounds. Prepare and follow all regulations so that you can continue to be a part of the business. Use our tips above in order to set your company on the right path as CCTT is implemented.
