In recent years, the cannabis industry has grown exponentially. As more states decriminalize cannabis, the demand for insurance coverage has also increased among manufacturers and shop owners.
Cannabis-related businesses are considered high risk for being less-established than other industries, so insurance must go beyond general commercial lines. Our agents at HUB International have a unique level of expertise to insure this specialty market!
