Introduction to the Cannabis Supply Chain
October 5th, 2022⋅Wednesday 10:00 am – 11:30 am PT

The regulation of the cannabis supply chain is unlike any other industry, and these regulations influence almost every aspect of doing business in this sector. In this webinar, we are going to define the concept of a supply chain and identify the ways in which regulations shape the cannabis supply chain. Then, we will take a closer look at the different license types that make up the cannabis supply chain and discuss how the different license types are interrelated in the cannabis industry. We will then more closely examine the practice of seed-to-sale tracking, a regulatory requirement that is one of the defining features of the cannabis supply chain and which has a massive impact on the day-to-day operation of a licensed cannabis business.
