2023 announcements

With new regulations in effect, applicants can apply to convert multiple cultivation licenses to a Large or Medium cultivation license

Attention Cultivators:

State laws related to cultivation licenses are changing. Effective January 1, 2023, the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) is accepting:

  • Applications for Large cultivation licenses.
  • Requests to convert other cultivation licenses into a Large or Medium cultivation license.

If you hold a Large cultivation license (including as an owner or financial interest holder), you may not hold any of the following licenses (including as an owner or financial interest holder):

  • Type 8 (Testing Laboratory)
  • Type 11 (Distribution)
  • Type 12 (Microbusiness)

Additionally, effective January 1, 2023, DCC cannot renew a provisional cultivation license if doing so would result in a licensee holding multiple provisional cultivation licenses on contiguous premises that exceed either of the following limits:

  • For Outdoor cultivation licenses: 1 acre
  • For Indoor or Mixed-light cultivation licenses: 22,000 square feet

Finally, effective January 1, 2023, a licensee or owner may hold more than one Medium cultivation license.
