testimonials

michael, michigan operator


"RMCC’s certification is proving to be of unimaginable value. As a social equity operator, the program has provided legitimacy and a knowledge base that I believe would have otherwise taken years to learn. The self-paced study and the accessibility to instructors seem tailor-made for an operator in my position. This incubator program allows me to manage both business and education in a healthy and efficient manner."

ken, cpa & owner of greenscore tax

"I first came across RMCC back in 2019 when I signed up for one of their free online courses. I was blown away by the value of the free content they were providing. I am convinced that RMCC is the “go-to” professional team for anything regarding compliance operations, Metrc auditing tools, operational plans, workflows best practices, and implementation education.

When RMCC developed a 200-hour compliance operations certification, I knew I had to sign up. By this point, it was 2021, I and I had expanded my cannabis financial and tax consulting business and became a Metrc Administrator for a licensed operator and Metrc consultant for multiple other Michigan operators. After being in the program for just three months, the answers I am to understand better cannabis compliance and its impact regarding inventory workflows and controls, tax, and accounting compliance."

holly, california compliance officer


"With the knowledge I've gained from RMCC's 200-hour program I hope to settle in with the right company and direct a large-scale Post-Harvest crew where I can implement new workflows and processes I learned from RMCC. Everything from drying, curing, bud manicuring, until it's bagged and tagged and sold will be traceable, efficient, organized and fun!"

the compliance safeguards you need...

You need to know how to fit your workflows within the regulatory framework and step-by-step instructions on how to build safeguards into your cannabis business to increase employee retention and decrease costly compliance and inventory mistakes.

You lack confidence in the insurmountable task of implementing a compliant framework and know that if you don’t clean up your inventory control and procedures today your license is at risk for violations, hefty fines, or license revocation. 

You put all your trust into a Metrc-integrated technology solution, only to feel betrayed to find out you are severely out of compliance due to internal employee behavior, lack of safeguards, and non-compliant training.

“The evolving landscape of cannabis compliance can be overwhelming, but RMCC’s knowledgeable team easily distills the latest regulatory changes & counseled us on smart strategies for navigating the next steps.

We would be lost without RMCC - they’re worth every cent!”

the obstacles are many but rmcc's certification program has all of the solutions you need

 

Regulatory Complexity and the Constantly Shifting Expectations: Cannabis compliance is complex and in the absence of federal regulation, the cannabis industry as we know it today operates as an impossible patchwork of regulatory changes. Our industry has undergone seismic shifts as new states legalize cannabis and attempt to rapidly address the unintended consequences of rules and regulations. 

The Daunting Task of Interpreting Law, Rules, and Regulations When They Fall Short: Owners, compliance officers, and consultants must be translators capable of navigating the gray area when the language of the laws, rules, and regulations fail to anticipate issues that inevitably arise.  Correctly interpreting a simple “if”, “and”, or “or”, statement within the rules and regulations can mean passing an on-site inspection with flying colors or dealing with violations, fines, or license revocation. It can mean advising a client in a way that builds trust and authority or setting that client up for failure.

Taking on Too Many Roles and the Conflicts of Interest That Can Create: When your operational and compliance roles are shared by one department or even one employee, you create an environment where your compliance team doesn’t have the perspective and distance to review, validate, and improve operational workflows in collaboration with your operations team. 

Lacking Oversight and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to Measure Success: Accountability is key. When your operation lacks SOPs, auditing workflows, oversight, and accountability, you’re setting your team up for confusion in the present and mayhem as errors compound over time. Imagine your compliance officer and operations manager have all of the SOPs they need and a thorough knowledge of your operations workflows but they do not have the KPIs they need to measure success. All of that hard work invested in building compliant workflows and related documentation is wasted unless your managers can assess their teams performance and address issues in real-time using the right KPIs. The whole company is exposed to unnecessary risk.

Failing to Implement an Effective Training Framework: Take a hard look at your company's training program. Regardless of whether you deliver the training yourself or work with partners like RMCC, without an effective training plan, you risk high employee turnover, employees executing outdated workflows leading to regulatory violations, and ultimately, a lack of accountability. Often, the task of developing internal training falls on the shoulders of compliance and operational managers who are already drowning under the weight of their immense responsibilities. These individuals likely do not have the time, the tools, or the skill set to author, implement, and lead an executable, repeatable, and measurable training plan.

testimonials

"Rocky Mountain Cannabis Consulting offers professional support to Cannabis Manufacturers looking to both expand, as well as protect themselves in an ever-changing market. We are so grateful for the work they did with us in Colorado in helping shape and protect our National Brand."

“Clients choose to carry Heavy Hitters cannabis retail products because of our commitment to the highest quality concentrates in the industry. We strongly value these partnerships and thanks to RMCC, we are able to serve as a trusted resource on retailer cannabis compliance. The on-site visit conducted by Brie and Rose provided valuable insight to how we can improve and expand our METRC compliance support to Heavy Hitters retail partners.”

"I have researched and hired six compliance companies here in Colorado, even some of the most well-known law firms, in the last four years. Not one of them even come close to RMCC, this is the pure truth, no hype, no bullshit. RMCC’s attention to detail and thoroughness is beyond compare. She makes for an amazing and powerful partner for your business.”

"As Production Manager with Om Edibles, I am given the honor of taking exceptional recipes for our edibles, tinctures, and body products and keeping them consistent in quality and milligrams, along with the responsibility to track those milligrams in Metrc. As the first California licensee to implement METRC we are so grateful for RMCC’s knowledgeable team, and their eye for detail, to move through these ever-evolving compliance regulations. We at Om Edibles enjoy working with the RMCC team because they make compliance FUN!"

"Part of Flow Kana's commitment to the small farms from which it sources flower includes a robust training program to help farms reach competency with METRC. In 2018 Flow Kana engaged RMCC to execute this program, including workshops, webinars, and on-site trainings with over 30 farms. Farmers later rated this program as the most successful of Flow Kana's farmer support programs by a large margin via survey. As the person who manages these programs on Flow Kana's side, I can tell you that Brie and RMCC are impressively agile and wonderfully responsive amidst a constantly changing regulatory climate."
