Obtaining and maintaining your business licenses, whether cannabis, local, state, etc., can be as unruly and frustrating. While licensing can be a burden, staying up to date can be the difference in keeping your doors open or not.

FDA/cGMP Compliance Assistance

Food Safety Standards cover everything from employee hygiene, to food handling, to temperature control requirements, etc. While some counties have regular health department inspections, others are still working towards it. Upgrading to good food safety standards now can reduce the risk of outbreaks, hefty fines, or even closure.

Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Writing

An SOP, is a set of step-by-step instructions to help workers carry out routine operations. With our unique approach to marijuana buisness consulting, we build SOPs to achieve efficiency and performance, while reducing miscommunication and failure to comply with industry regulations

Shelf Stability/Audited Product Approvals

In some states these evaluations are required to sell certain products that are High Risk Products (Inhalers, suppositories) or if they are a Potentially Hazardous product (Oils, tinctures, capsules, Beverages, etc). They may require either an Audited Product Evaluation or a Shelf Stability Approval. Avoid costly shutdowns, holds and recalls by contacting Allay Consulting to find out if your company is required to have these evaluations. Allay Consulting has Certified Quality Auditors on staff that are approved to conduct these kinds of product evaluations.

Compliance Training

Our consultants can conduct onsite or mobile training on FDA, cGMP, OSHA, emerging issues, points of emphasis, regulation changes, and ways to improve facility compliance. Allay can also create customized trainings and logs to ensure complaint staff trainings take place regularly in your facility.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Similar to hardhats on construction sites, manufacturing environments can be dangerous and sometimes require special equipment to protect employees and your product from contamination.

New Facility Build Outs

Starting a new grow facility requires expertise in both functionality (plan review) and in regulations. With our cannabis consultants, we can help you avoid any missteps or oversights which could mean starting over from square one.

HACCP/Food Safety Plan

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) and a Food Safety plan are both a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, physical and radiological hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe. These plans are a proactive approach to reduce health and safety risks through preventative controls.


Corrective Action Preventative Action (CAPA) is a written plan that establishes a process to eliminate causes of non-conformities or other undesirable situations. Non-conformances are identified after systematic evaluation and analysis of the root cause of the non-conformance, then corrective actions are implemented and preventative actions are established to ensure the issues are not repeated.



From noting hazardous chemicals, to illuminating exits, signage has many benefits in the cannabis facility. Knowing which is required by law and which helps employees understand and follow regulations, is paramount.


Creating a record of your various processes, be it sanitation, refrigeration, or dishwasher temp, etc, can help you easily maintain compliance and protect the products you are making from the possibility of disposals, outbreaks, and recalls.


Correctly labeling your products can be difficult as the required information is always changing. From contents and quantity labels, to intoxication warnings, proper labeling can keep customers safe, and protect your company from fines and recalls.
