Cannabis APPLICATIONS AND AVAILABLE LICENSES
See the map to the right to see what types of cannabis businesses are legal in your state.
The cannabis industry has many different types of cannabis business opportunities and states have many different types of cannabis programs! Going further, some states, such as California, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Oklahoma have “rolling applications”, which means they are typically accepting new applications for cannabis businesses without a limited time frame. Other states with cannabis licenses available have a designated window of time in which cannabis applications must be submitted.
Identifying which avenue you take is important so that you can match that with the appropriate application type.
The primary business categories in the industry are:
- retail (dispensaries)
- cultivation (cannabis growing facilities)
- extraction/infusion laboratories
Note that some states might have varying names for the same license type. For example, some states call extraction and infusion businesses “manufacturing” and others call it “production”. This is why it’s important to have a cannabis consultant on your side to explain the ins and outs of the industry.

The application process is best completed with the help of a consultant, as it is a tedious, complex process that is difficult to accurately complete on your own. You have one shot to get it right, and chances are if you’ve made it to this point, you’ve already invested a lot of time, money, and energy into the process. Winning a license is a competitive process and only a small percentage of people who apply actually get one.
