4 Types of Cannabis Operations with differing Requirements

Med-Prov is prepared to support your operation in meeting legislative and regulatory requirements. We base a large part of our training and knowledge from the National Cannabis Standards coupled with partnering with a reputable association whose primary focus is patient focused and patient safety.

The National Cannabis Standards (NCS) guide operators to maintain compliance with the National Cannabis Standards as well as local and state based standards. Med-Prov uses these standards and other resources to address issues related to the safe use and responsible commerce of legally marketed products derived from Cannabis species. These NCS guidelines are applicable to cannabis and hemp as well as cannabis-derived and hemp-derived products.

Cultivation Operations:

It’s extremely important that you understand your operation so you may implement relevant mandates. Cannabis may be cultivated in a number of facility settings including indoors, in a greenhouse, Outdoors as a field crop, and in nursery operations as allowed by applicable legislation and regulations. Cultivation operations often produce their own planting material and, in some Cases, may be allowed to obtain planting materials from other cultivation operations, nursery operations and compliant individuals.

Processing operations most often obtain unprocessed plant material from cultivation operations and depending on applicable legislation and regulation may also obtain post-harvest plant material from other processing operations, from compliant individuals and from vendors. Most cultivation operations and or processing operations will primarily distribute raw plant material to dispensing operations and or manufacturing operations. In some cases, cultivation operations and processing operations may also be allowed to distribute cannabis to other cultivation operations, other processing operation, vendors, and direct Operations

However, a compliant individual that manufactures, packs, labels, or holds plant material, hemp, or plant material-, hemp-derived products in accordance with local and state law, solely for personal use or for another compliant individual and who does not engage in sales, is not subject to these standards.

While cultivation operations, processing operations and dispensing operations are not subject to these standards, this exemption does not apply to any off-site warehouse or storage facility that serves the cultivation, processing, or dispensing operation. In order to maintain compliance with the NCS for Manufacturing,.
