How to Automate Your Compliance Label Process

Updated: Apr 12, 2019

With different packaging regulations in each state, with their own hodgepodge of guidelines for packaging and labeling, growers and farmers dedicate a lot of time and resources to following state regulations. One of the most notorious being, the compliance label.

A consistent practice between all of the legal states is that each batch, of each strain, is sent to a testing lab for analysis. After the lab results come back, cannabis companies have to create, print, and affix a label listing the percentage of THC and CBD to each package.

Undoubtedly, this process, if goes unmanaged, can clash with one of the most fundamental principals in business: time is money.

So, when businesses are looking for solutions to help them streamline their processes, three of the biggest considerations are:

1) How much will this cost?

2) What pain points or needs does this solve?

3) Does this save me time and/or money?

Since farms aren’t allowed to sell a specific batch while the sample is out for testing, the product sits in inventory. Add to that the time it takes to design or create the new label with the test results, find or contact your printer, receive a quote, approve a proof, produce, ship, and arrive to your door—the whole process could take anywhere between 2-3 weeks.

When you opt to automate your compliance label process, you can take the information you receive from the lab and input it directly to our DigiFLO portal. From here you can generate a proof, accept and process your order within minutes—receiving your professional cannabis compliance labels in as little as 5 business days.
