A strong, comprehensive cannabis insurance policy will typically include the following:
A general liability policy covers costs for a business if bodily injury, personal injury, property damage, etc., occurs on the premises. It also covers personal and advertising injury due to defamation, slander, libel, or infringement.
Cannabis products can cause impairment, so the insurance risk is higher than other business products. Product liability insurance protects the business in the case of bodily injury or damage to a third party entity due to a defective product or one that has not given adequate warning about impairment or psychoactive effects.
Excess coverage is an addition to your general liability policy – it will cover any excess damages due to large, unexpected events when the limit is reached on your underlying policy.
Property insurance covers any damages to buildings, property, business income, and machinery due to hazards such as fire, water, explosion, theft, and vandalism. In addition to this coverage, in instances with cannabis, auto insurance might not cover theft, but property insurance will.
Depending on the size/scope of your cannabis business, crop insurance is essential because it protects the crop against outside hazards throughout its growing period.
The cannabis business is susceptible to theft, unfortunately. Thus, it is a good idea to get crime insurance – which covers the loss of certain assets, money, and fraud by third parties.
Workers comp insurance protects your employees if an incident occurs at work that causes bodily injury or illness. Typically, the coverage will include medical expenses and lost wages.
Employment Practices Liability (EPL) provides employers coverage against any legal claims made by employees alleging harassment, wrongful termination, discrimination, or other related issues.
Many cannabis businesses transport their product in vehicles, so auto insurance is essential. Commercial auto insurance will protect against personal injury and property damage in the event of a work-related car accident.
