The state of Arizona legalized Medical cannabis in 2010, and Adult-Use cannabis in 2020 with passage of Prop 207, the “Smart And Safe Act”. Arizona is one of the many states with limited licensing, allowing a set number of licensed cannabis establishments across the state. Cultivera offers Arizona licensees proven, reliable business software with full, seed-to-sale automations, B2B menus, and traceability through Cultivera Pro + Market, plus complete retail workflows for Dispensaries through Cultivera POS.

Issued to accredited, independent laboratories to analyze cannabis plants and products.
Arizona lacks a traditional, required track-and-trace system for licensed operators, and traceability requirements differ for medical and adult-use businesses. This may change in the future, as more licensees are required to have some form of track-and-trace system, so many operators may choose to implement track-and-trace systems now.
However, Arizona Dispensaries and Retail stores are required to keep specific sales records, and all adult-use cannabis businesses are required to file monthly tax forms.
Cultivera’s vertical software solutions allow licensed operators to take control of their supply chain and make informed decisions that help them grow from seed to sale.
Arizona imposes transaction privilege tax (TPT) on the sale of medical and adult use marijuana, as well as an excise tax imposed on the sale of adult-use marijuana. Taxes are collected by the Arizona Department of Revenue.
Sales and excise taxes are used to maintain and regulate the industry, with the remaining revenue directed to funds for the state such as colleges, highways, emergency departments, and justice initiatives.
Arizona’s Cannabis Industry Trade Association (MITA AZ) is a network of industry professionals working to support the continued evolution of the cannabis industry, promoting “education, transparency, inclusivity, and accessibility”.
