Weed vault

The cannabis industry is marked by both uncertainty and opportunity, with current and prospective players scrambling for a piece of a growing pie. CustomVault’s Cannabis Practice Group is focused on providing growing facilities and dispensaries with pre-approval/application assistance and solutions that center around the unique requirements of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) validated high-security storage. We also lend our expertise to CBD oil extraction storage facilities and other industry adjuncts to ensure optimal security.

What You Need

Security Planning

A plan that ensures full compliance with security regulations as dictated by state statutes will be essential to your success. This necessitates pre-approval consulting and state application assistance to help you get to the starting line.

Those in the know select partners with expertise and long-term experience specific to cannabis AND pharmaceutical security solutions because there is no room for error.

Security Equipment Installation

Once approval is secured, the real work begins. While not legal on the Federal level, cannabis is still subject to DEA rules and restrictions. Per the Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR 1301.72, the governing specification for pharmaceutical applications, cannabis is a controlled substance thereby mandating secure storage at cultivation and processing facilities in addition to retail dispensaries via compliant:

  • DEA approved modular vault systems complemented by GSA Approved Class 5 and AR5 vault doors and day gates
  • TL 30 safes
  • Electronic Security

This is where those early planning partnerships segue to proper implementation. Compliance is essential to your survival in a contentious business environment. Cannabis and 21 CFR 1301.72 go together.
