your environmental partner
If anything is certain, the cannabis industry is no stranger to regulations. But is your cannabis business environmentally compliant?
When it comes to the cannabis industry, many tend to think of "regulations" as they apply to the growth, processing, manufacturing, and distribution of products. The reality is, the facilities that are involved in the cannabis industry are subject to a variety of environmental regulations from federal, state, and local governments just like any other legacy industry out there. Understanding environmental regulatory compliance at your cannabis facility can be a challenging prospect, we get it.

Growing and processing cannabis means it's possible there are environmental regulations at Federal, state, county, regional, and/or local levels that could impact your operation, just like any other legacy industry out there. This generally depends on where your facility is located and the specifics of the operation, but regardless cannabis facilities will tend to have similar environmental responsibilities despite the state or local versions of the regulation.
Most cannabis facilities can expect the cost of environmental compliance to be in the several to tens of thousands of dollar range up front, with long-term compliance being somewhere in the high hundreds to several thousand dollar price range every year. That price covers getting into compliance on your own, hiring outside help, getting permanent internal help, and longer term considerations such as training, permit renewals, modifications, revisions, etc, all of which can impact the cost of a fully environmentally compliant cannabis facility.
