Similar to how your auto insurance can keep you from paying costly fees in the case of an accident, helps keep your business from paying costly claims from accidents caused by your products or operations. These types of claims can be for:

  • Bodily injury (including illness, allergic reaction, or death)
  • Property damage
  • Failure to provide warnings
  • Product design malfunctions

Our cannabis business insurance policy includes both General Liability Coverage and Product Liability Coverage. Additionally, you can include coverage for Business Personal Property (Inland Marine Coverage), Employee Benefits Liability, Product Withdrawal, and more.


No one plans for an accident to happen. Even with the most rigorous product testing, you will always carry the risk of an accident occurring. Having cannabis product liability insurance can help you financially safeguard your business and not have to worry about handling a claim alone.
