What You Need to Know About Background Screening for Cannabis Companies

Q. Do I really need background checks for the cannabis industry?

A. Yes! The cannabis industry faces the same risks as any other industry: product theft, compliance issues, financial security, and more. Background checks minimize risk, prevent poor hiring decisions, and keep your business in line with laws governing the production and distribution of cannabis products.

Q. Can we run drug tests without screening for marijuana?

A. Yes. InfoMart offers custom drug panels that allow cannabis companies to screen for what matters most to them

Q. Which employees should be screened?

A. Cannabis companies face serious risk on a variety of fronts. InfoMart recommends pre-employment screening and post-hire monitoring on your entire staff, but we particularly recommend running a background check on anyone who will be handling product, interacting with consumers, or managing finances. We also recommend doing your due diligence on vendors/third-party contractors and investors.

Q. Can you also screen our vendors?

A. Yes. InfoMart offers vendor screening, which helps growing marijuana businesses certify the employees of your contractors meet your hiring requirements. In a brand-new and constantly evolving industry like cannabis, vendor screening is crucial to sort out those who might not be fully licensed or compliant with all state laws.

Q. Can you screen our investors as well?

A. Yes. InfoMart’s full suite of financial screening services helps you ensure that you and your potential investors are compliant with all state and federal cannabis laws regarding the funding of cannabusinesses.

Q. Why should my cannabis company choose InfoMart for background checks?

A. Simply put: we know our stuff. InfoMart has been a dedicated, accredited background screening company for three decades. That means that when you choose InfoMart, you’re choosing experience.
