Key risk considerations in the manufacturing of cannabis edibles are vendor management, controlling your supply chain and ensuring your supplies are secured from reputable companies that meet your quality standards. Make sure to talk to your insurance broker about food manufacturing insurance.
Additionally, if you are creating and selling edible cannabis products, “mental anguish” is a concern as it can be an exclusion in insurance policies. Mental anguish takes place when a customer purchases and consumes one of your products and claims you are liable for a psychotic episode caused by the edible. So be aware and ensure you have the proper insurance to protect against mental anguish.
