About Us

CheckMJ is the cannabis industry’s only B2B business review and credit reporting platform that provides users with community-sourced ratings and reports on the businesses they work with and depend on every day. CheckMJ is for licensed cannabis operators only and utilizes METRC login credentials to verify that each user on the platform is an active license holder. The CheckMJ rating and reporting platform encourages increased accountability and transparency through providing users with real-time insights and reports on their business networks, while also promoting the best businesses and products in the industry.

Our Mission

CheckMJ’s mission is to foster better business in cannabis through increased transparency, accountability, and community-sourced insight, all while promoting great businesses.

CheckMJ: Promoting Great Businesses While Cultivating Accountability

CheckMJ’s business review and issue reporting system effectively serves as a credit reporting platform for the cannabis industry. We encourage users to submit ratings for businesses that they love working with and for those going above and beyond to provide great products and fantastic service. Similarly, if a business does not pay bills or fails to deliver product in a timely manner, the affected business can submit an issue report and/or a review detailing the issues experienced.

CheckMJ integrates METRC login credentials to ensure that only active license holders may access and add to the CheckMJ reports and ratings database. While users cannot rate or report businesses anonymously, we also recognize that some degree of privacy is critical for proper resolution of certain business issues, and therefore, while issue report details are visible to all users, the reporting business name will only be visible to the subject business.

CheckMJ evolved out of our founders’ combined 30+ years of operational experience across numerous cannabis verticals including cultivation, manufacturing, distribution, retail, and finance – we thoroughly understand the importance of trust and accountability in all business relationships. We believe the necessity of having a great reputation – built upon trust, execution, and simply treating others well – will continue to drive professionalism and accountability in cannabis, and CheckMJ seeks to be an industry guidepost for continued positive change.
