The New York State Cannabis Control Board announced yesterday (May 5) the approval of 36 more Adult-use Cannabis Conditional Cultivator Licenses, this adds to the 52 approved last month.
There are now 88 approved licenses from a pool of more than 200 that have been submitted to the office of Cannabis Management since the application portal opened on March 15.
“Today, we are granting an additional 36 licenses to hard-working New York farmers devoted to growing the best supply to our state,” said Cannabis Control Board Chair Tremaine Wright. “These 36 new licensees are helping create the foundation of a safe, equitable industry built as they grow the cannabis that will line the shelves of dispensaries owned by justice-involved entrepreneurs later this year.”
One business in Cortland County was approved with the license. The license is going to Joseph H. Sega of Cortland County.
New York reminds the deadline to submit applications will be June 30th, 2022 and are only granted exclusively to qualifying New York-based farms that already grow cannabinoid hemp within the State.
