Cannabis Compliance Software

Work smarter with automated compliance-first cannabis software.


Full Compliance. Fewer Headaches.

Nuances in the cannabis industry add complexity to your licensed dispensary operations. At Cova, we’re on top of dispensary compliance and in sync with government cannabis regulations, so you can focus on what really matters—expanding your brand and engaging your customers. Every dispensary POS feature we build is designed to ensure that cannabis compliance is not a burden, but a competitive advantage. Our automated compliance tools prevent your staff from breaking the rules or making operational missteps that could result in fines or even cost you your retail license.


Certified HIPAA Compliant

Cova has been independently audited and received Type 1 HIPAA Attestation in 2022, verified to follow industry best practices and maintain the highest standards for data security and the protection of Personally Identifiable Information. In 2023, Cova successfully completed a SOC 2 audit with A-LIGN, validating our commitment to critical security standards to protect and secure client data.


ID Scanner & Purchase Limit Alerts

Get peace of mind that your staff won’t accidentally break the law with Cova’s built-in ID scanner & purchase limit alerts. Our ID and age verification prevents underage sales, identifies existing customers for faster check-in, and stops looping. Cova POS calculates THC equivalencies of cannabis products, alerts your staff, and prevents sales that exceed legal limits.


Hours of Operation Compliance

Ensure that your cannabis dispensary operates only within the authorized hours established by state or provincial local laws.  Set your hours to prevent prohibited sales, accidental or otherwise, to avoid hefty fines or loss of business license.


Seamless State Traceability Integration for U.S. Dispensaries

Cova is a seed-to-sale compliant point of sale system that is fully integrated with statewide track and trace systems like BioTrackTHC, Leaf Data Systems, and Metrc system, allowing retailers to automatically report data in compliance with government reporting requirements.


One-Click Compliance Reporting for Canadian Retailers

Canadian cannabis retailers must submit monthly compliance reports to their provincial government: Select a report, and our POS exports all required data in a file you can upload via your provincial online portal. It’s easy, saves time, and reduces human error.

Our report is compliant with AGLC (Alberta), AGCO (Ontario), SLGA (Saskatchewan), LCRB (BC), LGCA (Manitoba), YLC (Yukon), and Cannabis NL (Newfoundland & Labrador).


Compliance is the #1 factor in this industry, and Cova POS is on top of it. The strong API and frequent syncing with METRC are a big advantage.”

Compliance FAQs

Do I need a seed-to-sale tracking software system?

No, you don’t need a complete seed-to-sale software system for your marijuana dispensary to be compliant with regulations. If your business is strictly cannabis retail, a seed-to-sale system is not the best fit for you. As long as your dispensary POS  is fully integrated with the state tracking and traceability system and fulfills all reporting requirements, you won’t have to worry about compliance issues. With automatic reporting capabilities, Cova is a seed-to-sale compliant POS validated by state governments.

Is Cova compliant with my state’s local laws and cannabis regulations?

Yes, our dispensary POS system is fully compliant with all cannabis regulations in every market we operate and will prevent your staff from making operational missteps that could lead to hefty fines. Cova POS  is also ready for cannabis farmgate sales in Canada. In the US, Cova is a seed-to-sale compliant POS that is seamlessly integrated with statewide traceability systems including BioTrackTHC, Leaf Data Systems, and Metrc.

How does integration with METRC work?

Cova is one of few cannabis-specific dispensary POS systems with two-way integration to Metrc. Integration may work a bit differently in each state, but what you mainly need is an API key after Metrc registration, plant and package RFID tags for your cannabis products, and Cova POS handles the rest. Our system automatically handles compliance reporting and directly sends any adjustments to Metrc, thus helping you maximize operational efficiency.

How is Cova different from POS systems not built for the cannabis industry?

Cova is a compliance-first company and features several automated safeguards. In addition to customer ID scanning, Cova has purchase limit monitoring, product equivalency calculation for edibles and concentrates, auto-apply taxes, one-click reporting, etc. Cova’s cannabis-specific POS is configured to meet all provincial and state reporting requirements, which means all mandated reports are aggregated and exported accurately and in the required format. With the best-in-class automated reporting tools, you will always stay ahead of compliance.
