The people and platform behind the accelerated cannabis supply chain

We are a California born company, serving customers globally. Around the world, cannabis and hemp growers are facing an increasing market demand. Producers are faced with new challenges in their supply chain on an unprecedented scale. Founded in 2017, Backbone created a pioneering supply chain management software to solve these problems. Our team has witnessed first-hand the struggles and challenges cannabis and hemp growers faced in Humboldt County, CA and across the country. We are inspired to solve their problems.

Federal legalization is here

Since 1973 the United States has progressively decriminalized cannabis and help state-by-state. Today, we have some degree of legalization across all states. While the current lack of interstate commerce limits the extent of competition and scale, operators across the country need to meet local and state requirements while preparing for what’s coming federally and globally.

Despite the increasing number of licenses, only 50% of the top 20 brands in 2018 exist in 2020. Operational efficiency is paramount.
