In this lesson, Simone Cimiluca-Radzins of Kalogia and Carl Ganz of CannaData solutions will discuss the key components of the METRC software, and key points you should consider as a cannabis operator when dealing with METRC.
METRC is a regulatory compliance management solution. It exists to ensure that regulators can oversee cannabis compliance and mangagement. The system is heavy on audit and compliance and it’s main purpose is to allow regulatory users to view all licensee activities captured in the system and ensure that there is a full track of the marijuana from the seed to the final sale to the customer.
