Covering Cannabis

December 15, 2017

I have gotten some feedback from dispensary owners that their choices are limited when it comes to insurance, and that it is difficult to find personalized services where they can have peace of mind from a REAL agent when being advised & guided through decisions about their insurance coverage.

They seem to feel like there is a stigma when they approach the agents & brokers in their towns. Whether it is there or not, it seems to be felt.

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BUY INSURANCE FOR YOUR DISPENSARY ONLINE. IN FACT, YOU SHOULD NOT BUY IT ONLINE.

 

You need the Executive Edge just as well as anybody else and possibly EVEN MORE SO as we learn to navigate the new industry, recognize where the most risk is, & allocate your insurance dollars appropriately. And you DEFINITELY need a real person to have a good chat with about how the policy works. When you are ready to discuss what it's going to take to get into business, call Kelly at 209.385.EDGE or (209.385.3343).

 

Below, I am going to share with you the typical questions you will be asked when applying for a policy for your dispensary. Knowing up front what you will be asked for will help you feel less anxious and more comfortable with the process. It will also help you understand what the insurance companies are thinking about when they consider how much your coverage is going to cost you. This is exactly what my Application looks like, and these are the questions I will start with. Of course, the answers to these questions may lead to more questions, that’s just the nature of the business...
