Our unique approach to the regulatory landscape means we can provide approved, up-to-date training in more places and to more people than anyone else.

We pay attention to the details and work alongside regulatory agencies to build custom courses that meet local food safety requirements.

We will also tell you where we cannot provide approved training and help you understand how to meet those local requirements.

If you have locations in any of these areas, you’re already our customer:

  • San Bernardino County, CA
  • Riverside County, CA
  • Jefferson County, AL
  • Mobile County, AL
  • Lexington-Fayette County, KY
  • And more!
“StateFoodSafety identified our specific regulatory need for each jurisdiction in which we operate across the nation, developed a portal for our team to use, and delivered an awesome product to our team. The Accounts team is a pleasure to work with — quick to respond and helpful, with a ‘can-do’ attitude. That’s why we’ve maintained this partnership for more than five years!”
-Ken Fuller, Potbelly Sandwich Shop

Simplified Integration

Integrate food safety training into your LMS with ease.

Your learning management system (LMS) is a central part of your company’s culture — and we get that. Our proprietary technology can integrate with the most popular (and unpopular) LMS platforms using one of several industry-standard protocols.

This means you can assign training and track learner progress in the system you already use.
No managing separate logins, no learning new systems, no data imports — just seamless integration.

  • Wisetail
  • Cornerstone
  • Saba
  • Schoox
  • Totera
  • Litmos
  • Lifeworks

Government Compliance: Solutions for Laws & Regulations

Meet ALL Compliance Requirements & SUCCEED in a Complex Industry

Fortunately, most government agencies have public information departments EAGER to assist by providing information to help ensure you’re compliant in the cannabis industry.

But it is complex and enforcement agencies have no obligation to notify businesses that they must comply with the law, so it is YOUR responsibility to deal with regulations from:

  • Federal: purposes of regulating inter-State/Province/Territory cannabis commerce.
  • State/Province/Territory: In every country, there are multiple legal jurisdictions with a variety of cannabis laws where you’re operating commercially. It’s HARD to comply.
  • City/Local Government: Local regulations voted by representatives of residents who live or work in that city, commonwealth, territory, county, municipality, or township.

We develop custom eLearning solutions to MEET government requirements with a training platform to ensure tracking and reporting for compliance never becomes a burden.

It is a perfect line of defense to ENSURE compliance and ready for an audit by having all your training records in one (1) place… if it isn’t documented, then it “didn’t happen“…

Message From Our Founder

How would you describe your cannabis training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a well-developed solution.

Is your training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I asked this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you'll always be a cannabis expert.

In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your business) and much more... without all of the headaches.
