This information currently applies to Green Bits customers in Montana, California, Massachusetts, and Michigan.
Your state agency will require you to apply for a license and track your cannabis products through Metrc. Metrc is the system that your state uses to track cannabis from seed to sale.
In order to enable reporting to Metrc, Green Bits needs to schedule a migration of your inventory. Not to worry! Green Bits manages the majority of this process on your behalf.
However, any deviation from this process puts the migration in jeopardy and could result in 25+ hours of manual data entry for you and your staff.
After your migration, Green Bits reports to Metrc for you, keeping you compliant automatically.
Apply for your license through your state's licensing agency. Once you receive your username and password for Metrc, contact Green Bits at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible for next steps.
