Product Categories serve as organizational units to categorize products, allowing for efficient inventory management. These categories play a crucial role in distinguishing between marijuana (MJ) and non-MJ items, ensuring compliance with relevant regulations. Additionally, purchase limits, specifying the maximum amount of marijuana that can be bought, are defined at the product category level, providing a structured framework for sales restrictions.

In this article, we will walk through the process of creating Product Categories in your GrowFlow account.

Create a Product Category

To create a new Product Category:

1. Click on Organization Settings.

2. Select Product Categories.

3. Click the green "+" button in the top-right corner of the screen.

4. Enter a Product Category Name.

5. If this product category will be for MJ-containing products, make sure you turn on Contains Marijuana toggle.

6. If you are in a Metrc-connected state, you will also need to select the corresponding Metrc Type from the options in the dropdown menu.

7. Set the Purchase Limit Type (e.g. Flower, Concentrate, Edibles, etc.).

8. Click Save & Close.

You've successfully created a new product category!
