Flowhub Colorado

Colorado is our home state. We work with hundreds of dispensaries here, both medical and recreational, and have a deep understanding of the local challenges you face on a daily basis.

Flowhub was founded in 2015. We were the first to integrate with Metrc and continue to build cannabis retail software, mobile applications, and integrations that Colorado dispensary owners and managers need to be successful in this established market.

Can I easily add new dispensary locations to my Flowhub account?

Yes, Flowhub excels at managing multiple dispensary locations. Our platform easily scales as you grow. Features like the global product catalog and the ability to transfer inventory between stores allow you to get your new location up and running quickly. We built our POS software so both owners and managers can make company-wide updates and see reports at the company level or location level.

How do I calculate Colorado marjuana tax in my dispensary?

Taxes are a common question because they vary from state to state, and often also by county or city. For recreational dispensaries in Colorado, you are required to collect excise taxes and sales tax. Learn more on the Department of Revenue page. You can also visit our blog, How to Calculate Cannabis Taxes at your Dispensary, to learn more about cannabis taxes and see how to do this in Flowhub.

What are the Colorado marijuana laws?

The regulatory body for Colorado’s retail and medical marijuana licenses is the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED). Colorado uses Metrc as the state track and trace system. Recreational customers are allowed 1 ounce of cannabis per day, equivalent to 8 grams of concentrate and 800 milligrams of edible product. Medical customers are allowed 2 ounces of flower daily, 40 grams of concentrate, or 20,000 milligrams of medical marijuana product. Visit the Colorado state site to find the most updated regulations and purchase limits.

Why do I need an integration to Metrc (and other vendors like Weedmaps, Leafly, Dutchie, Jane, or Enlighten)?

Integrations to Colorado Metrc and other vendors will not only help your dispensary run more efficiently, it will also save you time and money. Integrating through Flowhub’s open API will automate manual tasks such as data entry and menu updates. Integrations also reduce the risk of human error. Using ecommerce integrations will help you stay competitive in today’s contactless environment, and into the future as customers enjoy the convenience of online ordering, delivery services, and curbside pickup.

How can I keep my Colorado marijuana dispensary competitive given the increasing consolidation?

Dispensaries in Colorado understand that the consumer base has many options in where to buy their cannabis products. Attracting new customers and retaining the ones you have is key. Your store needs to streamline processes, integrate technology, and connect data and apps to improve customer satisfaction. Creating customer loyalty programs, speeding up check in, and creating a beautiful store layout will further your goal, and your revenue stream. Flowhub’s modern point-of-sale system can help you with all this and more.
