Microsoft is making its first foray into the cannabis industry.
The software giant has partnered with KIND Financial, a provider of technology and tools for cannabis-related businesses to operate safely, securely and in compliance with the regulations, laws and guidelines in the cannabis industry.
The companies are working together to launch KIND Government Solutions to acquire government-facing contracts for seed to sale tracking.
Microsoft selected KIND to participate in its newly created Microsoft Health and Human Services Pod for Managed Service Providers. The goal of this relationship is to leverage each company’s resources to provide state, county and municipalities with purpose built solutions for track and trace (“seed to sale” in the cannabis industry) technology.
KIND’s Agrisoft Seed to Sale for Government platform collects and monitors the critical data needed to track compliance with the state and jurisdictional rules, laws and regulations governing cannabis-related businesses.
“No one can predict the future of cannabis legalization, however, it is clear that legalized cannabis will always be subject to strict oversight and regulations similar to alcohol and tobacco; and, KIND is proud to offer governments and regulatory agencies the tools and technology to monitor cannabis compliance,” said KIND Financial founder and CEO David Dinenberg, “I am delighted that Microsoft supports KIND’s mission to build the backbone for cannabis compliance.”
