What calibrated coverage for cannabis looks like for Extractors.

Extractors have the delicate job of transforming the pure crop into isolated compounds, such as CBD and THC. The extraction process is labor-intensive and requires much equipment, exposing cannabis extractors to unique risks. Insurance programs customized to extraction companies must protect the most vulnerable details of this critical process.

Workplace Safety

Extractors must execute precise processes, requiring high-tech equipment and an experienced team. Most extraction facilities are massive, and the job is highly labor-intensive, making workplace safety a top priority.

Given the up-front costs associated with this equipment, many companies cannot withstand a loss to a piece of uninsured equipment. Repairing or replacing state-of-the-art equipment is another risk extractors must face.

Local, state, and federal regulations don’t typically align in the cannabis industry, leaving much room for confusion and contradictions. Product testing and quality control results can make or break a cannabis extractor, bumping regulatory compliance to a top risk management priority.

Directors & Officers

Shareholders, competitors, investors, etc., can sue a cannabis company’s executives, putting their personal assets at stake. Directors and officers (D&O) insurance protects these assets from lawsuits alleging leaders of wrongful acts managing the business.

 

Product Liability

Cannabis companies offering tangible products or services risk third-party lawsuits claiming bodily injury or property damage. Products liability insurance covers defense fees and settlements, even for ungrounded claims. This coverage is particularly critical in cannabis as testing and manufacturing aren’t regulated at the federal level.
