License Requirements to Grow Cannabis

Under the new Cannabis Act & Regulations, there are three types of licenses for cannabis cultivators to consider: the Standard Cultivation License, the Micro Cultivation License and the Nursery License. While the Standard Cultivation and Micro-Cultivation licenses allow businesses to cultivate plants, a Nursery License allows for the cultivation of cannabis genetics (seeds and clones).

License Requirements

Nursery Cultivation License

For operations focusing on starting materials like clones and seeds, and less than 540 square foot in size. For the purpose of testing, Nursery license holders may alter the chemical or physical properties of the cannabis. This license permits the sale and distribution of plants and seeds to other license holders.

Standard Cultivation License

For large-scale growth operations (over 2150 sq. ft. of growing space). A Standard Cultivation license allows the holder to obtain dried or fresh cannabis, cannabis plants or cannabis plant seeds by propagating, cultivating, harvesting, including but not limited to using aeroponics, hydroponics, aquaponics, vertical planters, and in traditional soil.

Micro-Cultivation License

For small-scale or craft operations (less than 2150 sq. ft. of growing space). The Micro-Cultivation License is perfect for small, boutique businesses such as craft cultivators working with a limited number of unique strains. A Micro-Cultivation license allows the holder to obtain dried or fresh cannabis, cannabis plants or cannabis plant seeds by propagating, cultivating, harvesting, including but not limited to using aeroponics, hydroponics, aquaponics, vertical planters, and in traditional soil.
