Security for Cannabis Cultivation and Processing Facilities
Prevent pilferage and theft
Ask Our Experts
Security is critical for cannabis cultivation and processing operations
Cannabis fits the classic definition of a desirable, small, easy-to-conceal
product that is a prime target for theft and pilferage. Given the value per
ounce, you must factor security into every aspect of your operation, from seed
to sell. Security is about more than simply preventing theft, of course. Other
reasons to stress a secure operation include:
- Your employees could be at risk: providing better
security means you can protect more than your bottom line - you can protect
- Passing state inspections: some states have rigid security requirements
for cannabis facilities. Those that do not may pass it in the future, so a
secure facility is a sound investment in future compliance
- Damage to equipment and systems: equipment damaged by
intruders could create significant downtime beyond the simple effect of lost
- Product quality concerns: intruders may damage or
contaminate clean areas that affect your business more than simply the loss
You need to guard against employee pilferage and external thieves who will
target your operation. The classic example is grocery distribution, where the
most frequently stolen item tends to be tobacco due to its small size, easy
concealment and relatively high value vs. weight ratio. Cisco-Eagle specializes
in helping companies create secure storage facilities, using a variety of
equipment and techniques.
Wire security cages and partitions
Depending on your state and local laws and security protocols, storing
cannabis through its various stages may require DEA-compliant security
equipment. We have helped many companies build compliant, high-security cages
and partitions for pharmaceuticals and controlled substances that comply with
regulations and create a safer, more secure facility. This security should be
utilized throughout the cultivation process, packaging, storage and inventory
We have decades of experience building secure cage systems compliant with all
in-plant regulations for the secure physical storage of Class III, IV, and V
controlled substances as outlined in Section 1301:72 of the Code.
Compliant cages are available in standard configurations, but are created to
fit a specific size, configuration and application.

Secure storage racks and rooms
Racks and storage areas are particularly vulnerable to pilferage and theft.
We can help you design secure storage areas that help control access to costly
inventory and processed products while still allowing you an adequate storage
See our rack security area for more information, including videos and
prices on standard systems. We help people design secure storage areas for all
types of products and situations - and we can help you.
Secure cages, carts and access control equipment
When you transition inventory into temporary storage areas, retail back rooms, from
processing to packaging and other areas, vulnerabilities are created. Some
options for transitional security include:
You should also guard facility entrances with
gates and other secure methods. For a full range of
plant security equipment, see our security area.
Modular cultivation facilities
When your operation is contained into
modular cultivation rooms, security is built in.
