METRC: The Basics
Below are answers to the most frequently asked questions we receive about METRC.
What is METRC?
The Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting Compliance (Metrc) system is a seed-to-sale traceability and compliance management solution used by regulatory bodies for the oversight of the cannabis industry.

Please be aware that in many states having fully integrated solutions is not a possibility for 3rd party software providers due to regulatory and/or METRC system capabilities.
