Available for immediate download at time of purchase in the form of an editable Word .doc. Starting with templates, rather than paying for custom work, will save you 10's of thousands of $$ in your application process. Perfect for the DIY applicant!
This 19-page document is a very comprehensive plan of how to approach cannabis waste management in a cultivation, manufacturing or retail facility. It applies to all license types and can easily be made to fit the requirements of your state or municipality. Besides explaining the protocols for handling cannabis plant waste, we include sections on solid waste, liquid waste, hazardous waste and universal waste. Like all of our templates, we expect you to read and customize this document to your specific approach to operations. If you are fairly new to the industry, reading our boiler plate operating plan templates will give you dozens of new ideas that will help you develop your project and plan down to the detail.
Jennifer Martin is a veteran commercial cultivator and consultant and is readily available to walk you through the docs and answer your questions, before or after your purchase. Contact Jennifer now by email or by phone at 510-418-0454 (Hawaii time, which is 3 hours earlier than pacific time).

Please Note: These templates are suited for projects in the pre-license phase of a cannabis production project. They are meant to get your started in meeting the regulatory requirements of state, local and (in the case of Canada) federal governments. They will also educate you on all of the topics that you will need to cover when setting up a cannabis production business.
Disclaimer: These documents are templates and thus do not necessarily address the specifics of your regional regulations.
