Hey Growers,

Obviously this question will vary from state to state (or maybe not), but who do you, use or recommend, when it comes to your insurance (General, Liability, etc). I was hearing about issues with “standard” insurance companies not correcting the under writing of their policy, continuing to classify cannabis as a contraband. I wanted to know if any of you had the same issue, and if not, what companies are you satisfied with? Thanks for the feedback.

Hello, it is true, traditional insurance carriers will not touch cannabis related businesses.
There are a limited number of carriers that will write GL, Property, Product Liability, H&NOA, Crop, etc.
Our carrier has an A+ credit rating with policy forms that do NOT include the exclusions you spoke of like "contraband and illegal trade"
Call me @ 720-810-2392 or email me at [email protected]
I’m happy to discuss coverages and provide a quote,
Regards,

Hello UVPPE team! It’s definitely a good concern and something that lies within the language of the policy. My team and I work with market who exclusively underwrite cannabis businesses which certainly helps alleviate any concern around the value of an insurance policy. Most importantly it’s all about service and which brokerage you feel is going to provide the most value for you during the application process, reviewing quotes, and most importantly when the policy is enforced. I believe my team is exceptional in this department and would love to show you what we can do.

Great topic…could have used this a year ago. I was told by a broker that per WA LCB we HAD to have product liability (PL), wasn’t true. That mistake cost us $2K+. No need for PL when you do not yet have product. We dropped that broker, but the next one was not good on service…so the right broker does matter. Shop around.

Hi. I’m another one late to the conversation and another option when it comes to insurance. By forming a Captive Insurance company, you can use tax-free money to formally self-insure and customize your coverage to your businesses unique needs. This allows you to not only save money on insurance but to administer claims on your own terms. You’ll generate profits and accumulate wealth because like any insurance company, Captives tend to accumulate assets in reserve. Your assets are protected by ensuring those dollars are no longer available to the creditors of the business. There are so many benefits going down this route. Money not used by claims can be withdrawn at a lower rate of the operating company, or held like a bank from which you can borrow. It works mostly as a way to re-purpose the funds, and dislocate the profits from the original operating Cannabis business. Please message me to learn more. I just joined and my partner and I are only just getting the website and vendors corner up.
