Ensure compliance with cannabis sales laws and regulations
Use a cannabis compliance program to protect your brand and customers from dangerous situations or legal issues.
Validate sales and service standards
Monitor everything from how stores are set up to employee knowledge, including safe handling and selling marijuana within the legal amounts. Ensure that your employees are being compliant and are consistently taking the right steps and precautions in-store and online.
Enforce age verification
Does your business have the necessary tools in place to prevent the sale of cannabis to minors? The minimum age in Canada ranges from 18 to 19 by province. Retailers can use mystery shopping as a way to positively impact age verification across locations.
