Our History

The origins of Cannasure can be traced back to one of our oldest friends who was in the process of opening a medical marijuana cooperative in Southern California. During one of our weekly conversations, we discussed the trouble he was having securing business owner’s insurance at a reasonable cost. We offered to take over the search and report back to him on our findings. With that, we became involved in this complex industry.

We saw, first hand, that the stigma against the burgeoning marijuana industry was strong, but not based in fact. We also quickly became aware of the many brokers and agencies looking to make a quick buck without understanding the true needs of the businesses in the industry. We knew something had to change, and we were the ones to do it.

Our Difference

From that first client to the hundreds of clients we serve today, we’ve dedicated our entire practice to mitigating the challenges that businesses in the legal cannabis and hemp industries face when trying to get insurance coverage. Through extensive risk management assessments of some of the leading dispensaries, cultivation facilities and infused product manufacturers, we’ve spent hundreds of hours observing and analyzing the unique risks facing the cannabis industry in order to best serve our customers.

At Cannasure, we truly are experts in what we do. We understand the industry. We understand the risks and challenges that businesses face. We understand the value of protection. Our expertise lies in using our extensive knowledge to provide insurance products that are affordable, attainable and most importantly, that properly safeguard the businesses we serve.
