Craft Growing Licences being rolled out with Legalization.
The legalization of marijuana will bring forward many changes to the growing and selling of marijuana. New licenses for the craft growing market would allow smaller producers to grow cannabis and sell it to provincial resellers without having to go through some of the monitoring and intrusion detection requirements that standard cultivation license-holders would have to abide by.
In addition, cannabis producers could apply for “Nursery” designation, which means they would produce only seeds and seedlings.
Craft growers could also apply to become a producer of hemp, which is cannabis that contains less than 0.3% THC.
So far cannabis producers under the country’s ACMPR (medical marijuana) system were only subject to one tier of licensing, A new set of license-types will be made available for” and “Micro” growers.
With all of this being said it’s hard to imagine where everything will turn out 10 years from now. My best guess is – those who get in early will reap the most benefit and eventually more regulation will be brought back to regulate the exploding market. Let’s hope that in the end I can grow in my front yard and I get complements on my beautiful buds.
