Licenses For Medical Marijuana Cultivators

Medical marijuana cultivation operations must obtain a license before they can move forward. This is no simple task, not only because the licensure process is complex, but also because there are a limited number of licenses available, and the competition for them is fierce. Growers must be careful to adhere to the process and stay on the right side of the regulations in order to obtain and maintain a cultivator license.

In Ohio, there was an initial offering of 12 Level I medical marijuana cultivator licenses and 12 Level II licenses. The distinction between the two levels is the number of square feet of cultivation area that can be part of a grower's operation. Those with Level I licenses can initially operate up to 25,000 square feet. Level II licenses initially afford growers 3,000 square feet.

Other states have their own unique regulations.
