Legalization of a medical marijuana program in 2004 and adult consumption in 2020 by Montana legislation has opened up a whole new industry and opportunities. However, regulations are still evolving. Applications are to be approved or denied within 30 days of submission and to begin with, only existing medical cannabis facilities will be eligible to apply for a recreational license.

Applying for a dispensary license in Montana

Montana dispensaries must maintain a canopy license, cultivation license and a dispensary license. Medical dispensaries are required to cultivate all of their own cannabis. A separate manufacturing license is necessary for the production of concentrates and other manufactured products. For recreational operations, cannabis retailers are permitted to sell cannabis products cultivated by an outside business, but these products can only account for 50% of total inventory.

Whether applying for a license, obtaining inventory or tracking products from seed to sale, every aspect of operation is strictly monitored and regulated. Compliance is essential. Surveillance cameras, dispensary location, marketing, advertising and product packing need to meet strenuous standards. With aggressive competition for licensing and branding, there’s no room for mistakes. This is where the team from Canna Business Services excels.
