Driving Best Practices
to Mitigate Risk and Protect Your Brand

With immense growth and opportunity in the cannabis and hemp industries, ensuring the safety and quality of your products is critical to success. 

As the foundation of all cannabis and hemp products, the operational practices and standards of growing and cultivation are the first step in safety and quality for all of this industry’s products. The HashTAG team can help you achieve best practices and mitigate risk through:

  • Laws & Regulation. We stay up to date on federal, state, and local cannabis and hemp regulations and recordkeeping requirements to provide custom consultation and help ensure compliance for your operations in the U.S. and Canada. 

  • Grower GAPs. We will assess your operations based on best industry practices and Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) standards and provide recommendations for compliance or improvements.

  • Risk Assessment. Based on your unique operation, we will identify potential risks and provide guidance on effective risk mitigation strategies from incoming ingredients to outgoing product.

  • Supply Chain Management. Even for growers, control of incoming supplies is essential to ensure the quality and safety of your product. We provide internal supply chain risk assessment and gap analysis to help you incorporate proven best practices.

  • Recall & Crisis Management/Communications. Recalls and crises require rapid response and communication containment (including that of social media). HashTAG can assess your programs, help develop brand-protecting plans, and provide during- and post-crisis support. 

  • Mock Audits, Inspections, Recall. Assuring success means being prepared and the best way to ensure that is by simulating a real-time event. HashTAG can help plan and run your mock audit, inspection, or recall, and prepare for GMP and GFSI audits.

  • Certifications. Attaining a license to use the US Hemp Authority Certified Seal means meeting stringent standards of the US Hemp Authority program. HashTAG can help you prepare and assist you through the certification process.

  • Intentional Adulteration and Contamination. Cannabis and hemp can be subject to intentional adulteration from both “insider attacks” and “acts of terrorism.” We assess your facility and processes for vulnerabilities, and help you implement mitigation strategies.

  • Training. Ensuring product quality and safety means ensuring everyone understands and buys into your best practices. Our executive- and team-level training helps you produce the best possible product.
