Massachusetts Organizations We Provide Cannabis Insurance For
If your business is directly within the Massachusetts cannabis industry, or if you work directly with businesses who operate within the cannabis industry, then you are eligible for our Massachusetts cannabis insurance. Here is a detailed look at how we can help a range of specific business types.
Provisioning Centers & Retailers
Provisioning centers and retailers, which are most commonly referred to as dispensaries, is a type of business to consumer business. Subsequently, they are more vulnerable to lawsuits from third-parties and other legal concerns than many business to business organizations in the cannabis industry. MFE Insurance recommends general liability, product liability, workers compensation and any other applicable insurance policies for all Massachusetts cannabis dispensaries.
Growers & Farmers
Massachusetts businesses that deal directly with the growing and cultivating of cannabis plants are vulnerable to high unexpected costs in a variety of ways. To reduce the overall risk for your cannabis grow operation, we recommend product liability coverage, crop and inventory/finished product insurance and workers compensation.
Processors & Laboratories
Process and laboratories are often the essential middle man between cannabis growers and dispensaries. They play a vital role in the cannabis industry, and they take on a lot of responsibility as they take raw cannabis and turn it into a commercial product for consumers. We protect processors and laboratories by ensuring they have the necessary policies to minimize the risk of monetary loss.
If your company is responsible for transporting the finished cannabis product from the processor to the dispensaries, then you take on a unique risk. In addition to general liability and product liability coverage, you will also need commercial auto insurance and workers compensation insurance, all of which we offer here at MFE Insurance.
Ancillary Cannabis Companies
Ancillary cannabis companies work directly with cannabis growers, processors, transporters and dispensaries. Among other professions, this includes marketing departments, attorneys and technology firms. If this applies to you, then you can benefit from Massachusetts cannabis insurance from MFE Insurance to minimize your own risk in the event a lawsuit is filed against you or other financial matters that are covered arise.
Property Owners & Landlords
Regardless of your involvement, landlords who rent to cannabis businesses take on extra risk as well. We offer Massachusetts cannabis insurance for landlords and property owners who rent their commercial property to businesses within the cannabis industry, protecting them from financial loss.
