Metrc Compliance Support and Solutions
Is your Metrc inventory management truly up to par?
Is your cannabis business utilizing Metrc inventory management accurately and efficiently? Is it worth taking the risks other cannabis companies have chosen to slide on with poor Metrc system management? It’s a tedious task that requires patience and attention to detail that presents a challenge to many operators, especially dispensary owners. Fear not, PsyCann’s cannabis regulatory experts can help with all your Metrc Compliance needs.
PsyCann's Metrc Experts are here to help you succeed
You followed your dream and entered the legal cannabis industry. You applied and received a license to operate a cannabis business and you’ve built your business from the ground up. Due to prudent planning, and calculated risk, you’re a player in the exciting and potentially lucrative cannabis space as either a cultivator, processor, dispensary, transporter, or testing facility.
However, alongside the dream and the satisfaction, is the crucial regulatory reality of seed-to-sale tracking that cannabis companies have to master to maintain regulatory compliance.
Most traditional cultivators aren’t legally required to keep track of every plant they grow. Traditional product manufacturers don’t risk losing their business license if a batch of their product isn’t recorded properly in their inventory. Finally, traditional retail establishments don’t usually run the risk of civil penalties for having inaccurate inventory records as dispensary owners do.
When it comes to legal cannabis dispensaries and other operations, such attention to detail is not just a mark of efficiency but a legal requirement. Let PsyCann help you so you can concentrate on your business.

Metrc Compliance FAQS
METRC stands for Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting Compliance. It is a track and trace system that monitors cannabis from the day it is planted all the way through growth, processing, transport, and sale to a patient or customer. Learn more by reading our Comprehensive Guide to Metrc.
Early adoption and implementation can prevent significant challenges down the road. As time goes on, and your business grows, small discrepancies and variances will continue to grow as well. The truth is, inventory and compliance issues will always arise, but developing a system to manage those issues and rectify the complications that allowed them to happen in the first place is incredibly important. However, you don’t have to try to figure out compliance or procedures on your own.
State authorities have the right to perform audits of cannabis industry businesses. To check compliance, a cannabis-division government agent may inspect the facilities, operations, and inventory of a business, and they may scrutinize their METRC account to audit for discrepancies between the recorded business proceedings and the actual operations within a given business.
Each state’s regulatory authorities differ, for example in Colorado it would be the Marijuana Enforcement Division of Colorado. In Maryland it would be the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC) who requires every employee of an operation to be trained in the METRC system.
According to Ron Sigman, the cannabis division of the government can conduct an audit at any point, and they’ll automatically conduct an audit for a flurry of reasons.
First of all, they will always perform an audit if a business attains a license or renews an existing license. In addition, they will investigate any complaints, including those rendered by customers, employees, and other businesses.
Employees are likely to complain if they “are disgruntled or they’ve been terminated,” according to Sigman. Meanwhile, customers may complain, as Sigman states, “if they’re not satisfied with the service or product they received.” What does that mean for your business? While it’s good to keep customers satisfied and keep employees content, it’s best to make sure your licensed cannabis business is compliant.
