The Cannabis Control Board (CCB) has approved a total of 162 Adult-use Cannabis Conditional Cultivator Licenses for New York's rapidly emerging cannabis industry.
The Adult-Use Conditional Cultivators are authorized to grow up to one acre (43,560 square feet) of cannabis outdoors or 25,000 square feet in a greenhouse. A cultivator may also grow a portion of cannabis outdoors or in a greenhouse provided the total canopy is less than 30,000 square feet and the portion of greenhouse canopy is less than 20,000 square feet. In addition to cultivation, Adult-Use Conditional Cultivators are authorized to conduct minimal processing and distribution activities of their own cannabis flower products.
The conditional licenses allow the approved cannabis farms to start growing this season with the goal of having finished cannabis flower and flower products (i.e. pre-rolls) ready for when legal recreational marijuana sales will begin.
More than 200 farms applied for the license after applications opened on March 15, and there are currently more in processing.
