Manufacturing Operating Plan
This 30-page Cannabis Manufacturing Plan is available immediately by digital download in a editable MS Word doc format.
Most cannabis cultivation operations also extract and manufacture cannabis products. Extraction and manufacturing (also sometimes called "cannabis processing") are great ways to make the most out of a flower harvest. You might be a jurisdiction that does not allow smokable flower to be sold, or you might be trying to make full use of your lower, less mature flower material.
This Cannabis Manufacturing/Processing Plan is what you would submit with your application to show regulators that you've thought through your methods. It starts with detailed descriptions of what your lead production, extraction and formulation personnel will be responsible for, and what job qualifications they should have.
The next section of the Manufacturing Plan is an overview of your manufacturing methods and technologies. The methods used for manufacturing cannabis vary quite a bit, so we have placeholder text in the plan for ethanol extraction, rosin pressing and sifted kief. You might also be using Co2 extraction or butane. You'll see where to plug in your own information as you read through it.
Quality Control is a big part of producing pharmaceutical grade cannabis derivative products. This Manufacturing Plan has sections on Safety, Security, Equipment Standards, Sanitation, Packaging and Labeling.
