Managing a brand in Marjin

Brands are used in Marjin for tagging Metrc items, assigning ownership to branded items, and grouping & filtering product in inventory.

Let's use Acme Cannabis to explore the different scenarios for adding brands to your organization. Currently Acme Cannabis is showing just one brand in its organization called Acme Premium Brand. Using the Acme Cannabis organization, we will claim a brand listed on Marjin, we will add a new brand that is not listed on Marjin, and we will sponsor a partner brand that does not have a license or account on Metrc.
