Cannabis insurance is not a one-size-fits-all purchase. It’s critical to purchase coverage that suits the exact requirements of your business.
Here’s a brief overview of the most common types of coverage:
In addition to protection against the typical risks associated with commercial property, we can also help you purchase specialized coverage designed to match the needs of your business. Options include but are not limited to:
• Stock in transit to you and/or your customer
What works for one organization may not work for another, so it’s critical to understand the many types of property coverage that’s available.
In the cannabis industry, there’s nothing more important than liability coverage. In addition to protecting yourself against accidents on your property, it can also cover you in the event of consumption related illness or injury.
Customize your insurance policy with the following types of liability coverage:
• General liability
• Products liability
• Public liability
• Tenants legal liability
• Contractual liability
• Product recall
• Premises reliability
• Errors and Ommissions
• Company officers liability
Maybe you’re only interested in one or two of these types of coverage. Or maybe all of them are right for your company. Either way, it’s good to know you can customize a policy to meet your specific liability coverage requirements.
It’s not always simple to buy landlord coverage. Here’s why: traditional insurance companies don’t offer coverage to landlords who lease property to a cannabis-related business.
If you lease a commercial building or property to any type of marijuana business, it’s critical to carry protection to cover their operation.
There are insurance companies that offer landlord coverage, but not all of them do. This makes the selection process a bit more complicated.
