Chances are you still need a plan like this one to complete your cannabis security package.

Cannabis Security Plan Considerations

The term “cannabis security plan” can actually mean two different things. Security hardware companies call a security plan a diagram of the locations of alarms, cameras, exits, windows, doors, lights, etc., and this is a component of a full security plan. When a regulatory agency asks for a cannabis security plan, they are looking for the long-form cannabis security document that we offer on this website. It has a location where you can plug in your diagram of cameras, lights and exits, but it primarily includes a narrative description of your of every detail of your plan to secure the facility, as you can see from the Table of Contents below.

Cannabis business security is no small task! It’s the main concern regulatory agencies have–keeping the facility safe and the cannabis products controlled and out of the hands of minors or thieves. When you are inspected by your regulatory agency, security and inventory control are the main things they will care about, followed by quality assurance.

Please Note: Our documents are suited for the pre-license phase of a cannabis business application. They save you time on starting your own document system and will also educate you on all of the topics that you will need to cover when setting up a cannabis production business. ​
