The Importance of Automated Government Compliance in the Cannabis Industry

One of the largest misconceptions with the cannabis industry, to date, is the comparison between the cannabis industry and the liquor and beer industries. While both produce and sell mind-altering substances, the reality is that they could not be further apart. With one of the most glaring differences between them being the level of regulation and oversight in the cannabis industry. Let’s think about it this way, the differences are similar to the oversight in making a post to
Reddit compared to the oversight in the
Apple App Store.


One of the cornerstone pieces to these regulations is the implementation of seed to sale track and trace systems like
Metrc and
BioTrack. Some states like
Massachusetts and Ohio have even implemented PMP (prescription management programs) as an additional layer of oversight. Maintaining the data in your business systems to stay compliant with state regulations can prove cumbersome and tedious when stacked on top of daily duties, which has led some companies to hiring employees for just one thing, entering seed to sale data. With Viridian Sciences’ automated compliance integrations, we can help lighten the load. 


By utilizing compliance system API endpoints, we are able to tie our robust seed-to-sale ERP system, backed by SAP, to your state’s compliance system. This allows you to have the level of analytics and functionality you expect in a full-blown integrated ERP system, while also knowing that you are limiting the possibility of human data entry errors and reporting responsibly without a loss in productivity. 


At Viridian, we took a commonsense approach to building our compliance integrations so that users can stay agile and use our system normally. In addition to this, we also built our integration to allow for both manual and automated syncing so that you are able to review data sent to the state. While other seed to sale companies only offer one or the other, we understand that your company is as unique as the cannabis industry and that means being able to pick what’s right for you.
