"COVID-outbreak urges us to perfect future of supply chain"

Now that the Coronavirus pandemic is threatening the stability of supply chains, some have started to wonder how they actually work in the grand scheme of things. “People are going to become supply chain experts when they are going to find something is missing in the shops,” says Kyle Moffitt with STEM Cultivation. “We live in an age where the supply chain is critical, and this was an issue for the cannabis industry even before this pandemic. The physical supply chain of cannabis has never been perfected. When you see that something is missing in a dispensary, for instance, that is because of supply chain issues. That is why it is important to address each and every step of the supply chain, starting with the cultivation.”

Keeping the grow under control
Stem Cultivation is a manufacturer of STEM Box, a cultivation system that allows growers to keep every aspect of growing under control, following the strictest GMP standards. “When we started designing STEM Box, we wanted to find a way to grow high quality at the lowest cost, with the most consistency,” Kyle points out. “The point here is that such a box helps fix a broken supply chain. Since in the US many states have designated dispensaries as essential businesses, there is a search for capacity now. This also means that, aside from supermarkets and pharmacies, cannabis might be one of the businesses that will survive the current situation.”

The need for efficient production
Therefore, as Kyle points out, you cannot disrupt the cannabis supply chain. “This is where we want to start focusing our efforts. There are so many big cannabis facilities that have some production problems, and as of now, you are stuck with that. There is too much variance in their output, which eventually will negatively affect the supply chain. We are pushing the idea of making sure that there are reliable supplies that are also cost-effective: and this starts from the actual production.”

Indeed, when big cannabis grows cannot be easily scaled up in terms of capacity, they might find themselves in troubled waters. “That is why we have a ready-made infrastructure that’s going to be more efficient than the current infrastructure. Thanks to this, expanding the capacity is way easier, and eventually benefits the supply chain as a whole.”

This is also why Kyle believes that more and more states in the US will realize how crucial the cannabis industry is. “A lot of things are going to change over this time,” he says. “We have to think differently now. This is not what we want, or what we hope for. It is what it is.”
