Is Tracking Cannabis Necessary?
For the most part, yes. Marijuana is still illegal on a federal level. For this reason states are required by law to have its grows and distributors maintain a high degree of transparency. Those in the cannabis industry must maintain elaborate records that may be reviewed or audited from time to time by government agencies. Records should include information such as profits, losses, inventory, procedural documentation, and operational records.
What is Seed to Sale Software?
“Seed to Sale” is a term used for any software product that provides cannabis growers with the ability to track their inventory from the day the seeds are planted all the way to when the product is put on a dispensary shelf. Every legal cannabis state is required by law to have seed-to-sale tracking software, but states with only medical marijuana may or may not be required to have it.
Can You Use Barcodes in a Work in Process Tracking System?
While you can use barcodes to track items throughout your work in process system, you will likely face several challenges. Barcodes need to be scanned one by one. So either a worker needs to scan each item as they move throughout the supply chain, or a fixed reader needs to be placed somewhere AND the barcodes must be placed in a way where they are seen and scanned properly. Both options are highly prone to errors and high amounts of manual labor. RFID tags, on the other hand, can be scanned automatically and don’t require the same line of sight as barcodes. If accuracy and visibility are high priorities, RFID is the way to go.
