Since legalization has taken place, many questions have arisen in regards micro-cultivation regulations, production, zoning sales etc.
Micro-cultivators have hit some roadblocks right on the on-set upon applying for licensing and it comes in the way of municipal approval and zoning which is a key requirement. Many small growers have not been able to apply to the federal government because they are still waiting on local zoning. But most cities just haven’t established zoning for such businesses and they’re either unprepared or unwilling to allow micro-cultivation the area. The federal government failed to educate municipalities about the new licences and needs to create zoning to support them.
Micro-cultivators can have a facility of 200 sq m or 210 sq ft and only once licence is permitted per unique address. For those looking to get into the micro-cultivation business, there’s a few stipulations one needs to abide once licencing is granted.
A micro-cultivator is only permitted to grow cannabis according to Health Canada. Their only option for selling are to another processor, an LP or a researcher. Micro-cultivators “cannot sell to a provincial or territorial outlet. They can grow cannabis, but are unable to make oil with a cultivation-only permit.
