Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology offers many conveniences for all facility types in the legal cannabis industry. This technology has a variety of uses for retail, access control, and electronic payment methods. RFID is perfectly suited for the highly regulated legal cannabis industry because it can accurately track and report data. One of the best uses of this technology is to track products from seed-to-sale for regulatory compliance.
Beyond the Tag
RFID technology is comprised of three main components: tag, antenna, and reader. All RFID tags are made of durable plastic. This is necessary in order to withstand the conditions of a grow environment. The antenna, which is built into the tag, transmits data to the reader. Once the data from the tag reaches the reader, there are many ways to store and manage it.
Internally, this technology can be used to record plant activity, track inventory, and provide quality assurance. However, the most important use of this data is the ability to accurately track chain of custody from seed-to-sale, which is required by law. This information collected via RFID can be seamlessly uploaded to Metrc in order to be reported out to the appropriate regulatory agencies. Metrc provides transparency of the supply chain by tracking activity, tracing product origin, and reporting data. This ensures compliance for your cannabis business.
