A lot of elements come together in order to successfully manufacture cannabis products. You start with an idea, then need to secure the right facility and equipment. From there a recipe is tested and refined. Packaging is designed, a marketing plan is created, and you’re physical product is ready to sell. With just a few more details to go, your product can start lining shelves. You still need to set a price and establish the logistics for how your product gets from manufacturing to dispensary. It’s a complex process, and you most likely want to concentrate on the product itself, which is why finding consulting support can be extremely helpful.

Our diverse team of experts support facility design, equipment procurement, recipe development, and packaging. Our experience working end-to-end in the industry enables us to not only help get your cannabis products made, but allows us to ensure everything is completed within the appropriate state and local laws.
Developing edibles within the cannabis industry is a lucrative area to get into, especially because there are so many options. The most popular edibles around the country include:
These products can be THC or CBD infused based on your preference, but there’s a lot to select from when deciding what products you’d like to manufacture.
After selecting your product, you need to have the right equipment to make it before beginning to test recipes. Through its extensive list of vendors, INSO can help you secure the machines you need for cannabis manufacturing at a competitive price. If buying everything you need isn’t possible at this stage in your business development, INSO can offer financing options to get you the equipment you need to start producing now.
With equipment in place, recipe testing begins. Creating an edible that’s tasty with just the right side effects requires a lot of trial and error. The team at INSO can offer advice on what combinations of ingredients may work best based on what you’d like to achieve with your product. We can help keep the effects of the cannabis right where you’d like it to be within your edible.
Creating a finalized recipe is the first step in establishing a consistent process for the creation of your product. This is very important when it comes to listing ingredients and supplement information on your packaging, There shouldn’t be a variation in ingredient amounts from one batch to another, especially for the THC or CBD content.
The finished product is complete and now it’s time to get it out the door. The manufacturing specialists at INSO can help negotiate deals on things like mobile packaging and product logistics. Mobile packaging is where a company comes and packages your product on site using your design. It’s a quick and cost-effective way to get your edible ready for purchase without having to transport it to a special facility. Laws and regulations connected to the cannabis industry do apply to packaging as well, so make sure you don’t make any health claims or use any medical terminology on your package. You can share how the product makes consumers feel, but you can’t claim it heals an illness or impacts any real symptoms.
Packaged and ready to go, it’s time to move your product out of manufacturing and into the dispensary. This is orchestrated through logistics. Unlike with other products, you can’t just hire any old trucking company to transport your goods from one place to another. The logistics of moving cannabis products is more heavily regulated. Drivers must be licensed to handle the product, and the trucking company must be approved to move it. INSO is able to help with the entire process. Already knowledgeable about the laws in your area, we can prepare you for the logistics in a way that minimizes risk.
Your product has made it to the dispensary and is available for sale. What began as just an idea has gone through the cannabis manufacturing process and is finally here. Guiding you through the entire process, INSO services helped you secure the equipment, finalize the recipe, and streamline manufacturing, packing, and transportation. All within the specifications of your state regulations, you’ve become a cannabis manufacturer.
