Why CBD oil products aren’t straight-forward to insure…

Insurance companies are careful and thoughtful assessors of risk. The cannabis industry in Canada is new and doesn’t have a long track record when it comes to risk and exposure history. That’s just one reason why getting CBD oil products insurance options requires expertise.

Whether you are a retail business or manufacturing, your CBD products business needs to respond to the precise and specific exposures your business faces. These risks may include any or all of these cannabis-related exposures:

  • Potential spoilage risk of CBD oil products retail inventory (such as mould and fungus)
  • High market/dollar value of CBD oil products and inventory
  • High business interruption exposure due to the value of CBD / cannabis products
  • Misunderstandings related to Canadian cannabis laws and regulations
  • High potential probability of fire

As well, if you’ve secured space for your CBD oil products but haven’t occupied the manufacturing and/or retail property yet, you face more risks. There are specific risks associated with vacant commercial property.

Many insurance companies cite a vacancy of just 96 hours (aka 4 days) as a coverage exclusion. This is because a flood, fire, vandalism or other event could go undetected and cause significant damage to the property.

In addition to securing vacant property insurance you can manage unoccupied property risks in a few specific ways.
