Cannabis Research License
In order for your license application to be considered, you should already have a facility or building unit that is dedicated to your research project and is already built out. As part of the license application, you will have to show some information regarding your site, including a site plan, floor plan and description of the physical security that is in place to prevent unauthorized access to the cannabis storage and operations areas.
Another important part of the application for a cannabis research license application is the Research Protocol. Your team should have a well-written Research Protocol summarizing the proposed research to be conducted and the amount and type of cannabis required for the research (e.g., gram, kilogram, litre or number of plants or seeds, broken down by site, if applicable). Your Research Proposal should also detail the tools and equipment to be used to perform the research with cannabis (e.g., analytical techniques, specify any in vivo or in vitro models to be used, etc.). You will also need to mention if human subjects are involved with this research, such as for clinical trials or palatability studies. Providing a clear, detailed and thorough Research Proposal will facilitate the timely review of your research license application.
