Georgia cannabis license

Georgia Cannabis - Market Overview

On April 17, 2019, Georgia Governor Kemp signed HB324 (the Hope Act) into law allowing qualified patients to possess and have access to low-THC medicinal cannabis oil (limited to 5% THC) in the state. Despite passing this bill and having over 20,000 registered patients, due to litigation over the license application process patients cannot yet access products through licensed dispensaries. It is anticipated the sales will begin in 2023 however this is dependent on the state's ability to properly license cultivators and retailers. However, two bills that are currently in circulation (HB 1425 and SB 609) would basically give this program a new beginning and redo the Georgia cannabis license application process or specifically the application review process. Previously unsuccessful Georgia Cannabis License applicants have cited a lack of transparency in the review and grading process.

Georgia Cannabis License Requirements, Timelines, and Selection

HB324 allows for the licensing of six Georgia cannabis grower licenses to be granted through a merit based Georgia Cannabis License application process. Two Georgia cannabis licenses were designated for Class 1 license types which allow for 100,000 sq ft of grow canopy space, four licenses were designated for Class 2 which allows for 50,000 sq ft of grow canopy space. Both Georgia Cannabis License types allow for the licensee to manufacture low-THC oil to be dispensed through separately licensed pharmacies. The Georgia cannabis production license application period ended on January 27, 2021 however due to litigation and a lack of transparency during the process it is possible that a new process is adopted to review and potentially re-award licenses.

We have contacted a few licensing company before I decided to contact with Canna licensing Experts. So far I think I have made the right choice and I am happy with the work they have done for us. The team answer questions promptly and never leave us alone. Not to mention their charge are reasonable comparing the similar type of consulting company and quality of their job.

Brian and Kalpna at Cannabis License Experts were very pleasant, informative, and knowledgeable regarding licensing. They helped us fill out all the forms needed and guided us through the entire process. I am sure that without their guidance our application would still be in process, or have been dismissed because of some missing information.

    Georgia Cannabis License - Business Climate

    Overall, Georgia has not embraced medical and adult use cannabis legalization and has a restrictive program compared to other states. The state limits THC content to 5% for all products and is limited in terms of allowed products. That being said, due to the large population in the state and the limited number of Georgia Cannabis licenses available, this state has promise to be a strong market for producers. Currently the Georgia cannabis licensing process is stalled and it is not known when the process will begin again. Georgia is known as a top state to do business in due to low taxes, low wage costs, and favorable regulatory environment.
