It is fairly easy to sell at the clubs. Most of them are pretty picky and dont want to pay much.

If you have a lot to get rid of then it might be worth it. And it also depends what are you are in.

If you want to supply medicinal cannabis buds to a club, its pretty straight forward.

1. grow the plants the clubs want
all you have to do is ask them “what do your patient’s like,” or “what do you like to have in stock?”. understand most clubs expect a minimum 1/4qp (113.5 grams kids, NOT 112. there are 28.4 gs in an OZ) available.

2. grow your plants better than everybody else is growing theirs. THIS IS THE HARD PART.. “growing your plants” means not only growing, but also flushing, manicuring, & drying them properly. good luck

3. pound the pavement and start working. discreetly bring your product, properly packaged (turkey bags are nice), to the shops and ask to speak with the buyer. if your kung fu is true all you need to do is open the bag/s and the buds will do the rest.

I get $300 per ounce (yep, $4800 per LB) of for my Bubba Kush & Sour Dubble cuts. IN ADVANCE in few times due to demand from LA clubs. My phone rings off the hook when the buyers know I am clipping the buds off of the branches (I call them when i first hang the buds to let them know “5-7 days” and get their mouths salivating for my product. and get their money right, too).

i don’t know where you are going or what you are growing, but either your buds suck, or you are selling yourself very short dude. you gotta fix that.

I’m looking into this extensively also. I had no idea it could go up to $4800 a pound. I was thinking $1800-$2500 because I figured it had to be whole sale. If its $4800 a pound I can’t imagine what the retail price would be. Can probably get a good idea on the strains they look for by looking at the menu’s that dispensaries post.

Do they pay in cash on the spot?

I wonder what the tax situation is with the whole thing.

where I am guys come in all the time with really good OG asking for 5200. 325per oz. its usually retailed as the top shelf $75-85 an 1/8th stuff (don’t forget the clubs are supposed to keep the pricing above street level/blackmarket to discourage resale. ). 4800 for reimbursement is a great deal in comparison. especially when the product is superior. its my little way of helping out the shop and forcing the the others guys to come backdown to earth some.

some clubs like to work on the “stretch program”ie “net terms” or consignment. some will pay in full at time of deleivery. some will pay a down payment and reimburse in x amount of time. each situation is different.

you do not need to pay taxes on “reimbursement transactions” as far as I know. hope this helpsyou some.goodluck

So if you have your medical card in CA and you approach the dispensaries like stated above there should be no legal trouble you can get into being that you are within the legal limits of personal grow amounts of cannabis. I just want to fully understand the right way to do it.

Not totaly true..in my county it is 12 total with only 6 in flower at any time..1 pd in possesion..but every county has there own limits..

Here is the way the state puts it;

HOW MUCH CAN I POSSESS OR GROW?
SB420 establishes a baseline statewide limit per patient of 6 mature or 12 immature plants, and 1/2 pound (8 oz.) processed cannabis. Patients can be exempted from these limits if their physician specifically states that they need more. In addition, individual cities and counties are allowed to enact higher, but not lower, limits than the state standard. Local limits are posted at: http://canorml.org/prop/local215policies.html .

Here are the limits per county:

[SIZE=-1][/SIZE]Arcata

City Council passed an ordinance 11/08 allowing no more than 50 square feet for cultivation. In addition, dispensaries will be prohibited from using more than 25% of their property for cultivation when the ordinance takes effect December 19. The council may revisit the issue during the land use code revision process in six months.Those with special needs may request more grow space. The new standards apply only to areas of Arcata outside the Coastal Zone, which rings Humboldt Bay. A separate but identical ordinance covers those areas, but will not go into effect until approved by the Coastal Commission, which will take at least a year and probably longer.
Berkeley

  • Ordinance allows 10 plants and 2.5 lbs per patient, or up to 50 plants, 12.5 lbs for collectives.

  • County guidelines : 6 mature or 12 immature plants, 1 pound processed material. Official Butte County policy regarding caregivers, collectives, and coops.

Calaveras Co.

  • In 2006 Calaveras dropped their pre-SB420 2 lb. guideline to 8 oz , and 6 mature/12 immature plants per patient.

Del Norte Co.

  • County adopted Sonoma cultivation guidelines with maximum 100 square feet cultivation area and 99 plants or fewer; one pound possession limit (approved by Board of Supervisors 4/22/02). However, as of August 8, 2008 those limits were thrown out, per People v. Kelly and a BOS action that began with the intent of reverting to state default guidelines.

El Dorado Co.

  • Sheriff & DA policy: Indoors – 10 flowering plants + 10 vegging + 1 mother; Outdoors: 20 starters or 10 mature plants, 1 – 2 lb processed marijuana depending on season of year. http://www.slednet.org/index.asp?Type=B_BASIC&SEC=

Humboldt Co.

  • County guidelines allow patients 100 square feet and 3 lbs w/ no plant number limit. Cities of Eureka and Fortuna PDs and CHP enforce SB 420 limits (6 mature/12 immature plants, 1/2 lb).

Mendocino Co.

  • On December 30, 2008, Mendocino County Superior Court Judge John Behnke ruled Measure B’s limits of eight ounces of dried marijuana and six mature or 12 immature plants per qualified patient (unless a doctor allows more) were now the legal limits in Mendocino County, reversing his August ruling throwing out the limits. Section 9.31.050 of Mendocino County Code makes the cultivation of more than 25 plants per parcel a public nuisance, regardless of patient status. On April 20, 2009, the Mendo Board of Supervisors introduced an ordinance that would transfer the zip-tie program to the public health department, and institute a $100 per day fine for not having written permission from landowners, a six-foot fence with a locked gate, or being within 1000 feet of a school or church, etc. The amended ordinance, which also includes a provision allowing for the Sheriff to seek reimbursement for costs of eradication, was delayed on May 5 . On June 23, the Board voted to start selling voluntary zip-ties for $25 on July 1 without enacting the rest of the ordinance.
    Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Medical Marijuana Guidelines (issued 4/03/2009)
    Local Ordinance
    Mendocino Medical Marijuana Advisory Board
  • Cultivation: 6 mature female plants or 75 square feet of plant canopy (previously 10 plants not to yield more than 2 lbs). Possession: 2 lbs processed marijuana – consistent with patient’s recommendation.
  • Indoors – 72 plants in maximum 32 sq. ft growing area. Outdoors – 20 plants, no area limit. Weight limit 3 lbs dried marijuana per patient. Collective gardens limited to 3 patients. Dispensaries serving four or more patients are allowed max. 6 mature and 12 immature plants and 1/2 pound per patient.
  • City Council guidelines allow up to 1 lb of marijuana, 24 plants in 64 square feet indoors; no outdoors growing allowed except in enclosed greenhouses. http://www.sandiego.gov/communityservices/medicalmarijuana

San Francisco

  • Patients allowed up to 24 plants or 25 square feet of canopy; dispensary gardens capped at 99 plants in 100 square feet. Possession limit 8 oz. dried cannabis per patient.
  • 100 sq.ft. canopy and up to 99 plants is allowable under county guidelines, for a patient or a bone fide caregiver. The City of Santa Cruz is awaiting a ruling in the Kelly decision before adopting guidelines.
  • Guidelines permit 3 lbs for possession; maximum 100 square feet cultivation area with 30 plants or fewer (approved Sept 2006)

  • On June 24, 2009, Tehama County Board of Supervisors delayed until July 14 their vote on an ordinance that would require fencing for medical marijuana gardens and make other restrictions. Supervisor George Russell encouraged concerned citizens to write to the board in concise, to-the-point letters.

I live in California and have a medical card. I'm getting into growing and I was wondering if someone with some knowledge could give me some basic info…

How to Best Manage Marijuana Vendors

Home » Industry » How to Best Manage Marijuana Vendors

Most cannabis companies use third-party vendors to some degree.

Whether you are ordering raw materials from a supplier or indirectly selling your product through a dispensary, your vendors, and the relationships you build with them are instrumental to your short-term and long-term prospects.

In this article, we will give you three best practices that you can implement in your business to manage your marijuana vendors effectively.

3 Practices to Manage Marijuana Vendors

Vet Your Vendors Wisely

Managing your relationship with your vendors starts before you even agree to contract terms with them. While it can be difficult to assess your vendor’s service before signing a contract, there are lots of resources at your disposal that can inform your assessment.

Look at online reviews and talk to current customers to gain a better understanding of their business. Or, ask for key performance indicators to help you determine if the vendor is going to be reliable throughout the length of your agreement.

Understand Their Business

Although you don’t need to know everything about a marijuana vendor’s processes or business model, it is still important to have a basic understanding of their policies. This should also give you an idea of the challenges they face in fulfilling their promises.

The cannabis industry requires vendors to be flexible as companies figure out their ideal schedules and stock levels. If a supplier holds firm beliefs in flexibility, they might be a great fit for you. If they are a bit more meticulous with how they supply their customers and are not willing to compromise, perhaps they would not be the best fit. Understanding your vendor’s business, to some degree, eliminates potential headaches in the future.

Invest in Vendor Management Software

An investment into a vendor management software solution can be the difference between sanity and insanity for your requisition and sales team.

Using software to manage your vendor contacts, product listings, payment logs, and lab results save you the trouble of needing to build and maintain complex spreadsheets. These documents ultimately help organize your account receivable, account payable, inbound/outbound shipments, and delivery schedules.

The best vendor management solutions can even be used to create purchase orders and production orders to satisfy sales orders, stock levels, or forecasted demand. These systems are key to managing your supply chain effectively.

Implementing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system like 365 Cannabis can help you manage your vendors along with your entire supply chain.

365 Cannabis comes equipped with robust CRM and distribution modules that manage your vendors, customers, contacts, and orders. It also contains integrated modules such as finance, cultivation, production, and retail that are all interconnected with each other to provide your business with real-time data across your entire company.
