CannDelta: Your Expert Guide to the Alaska Cannabis Market
Alaska’s cannabis market is quickly growing, with 468 recreational cannabis business licenses currently issued and 436 companies operational. Of these, there are 239 growers and 145 retail stores. Each application for a cannabis business establishment in Alaska must be submitted to the board.
If you’re considering applying for a license in Alaska, it’s important to know the requirements. If the applicant for a cannabis business is a corporation, the application must be executed by the authorized officers of the corporation. A partnership needs to provide the names and addresses of all general partners and all partners with an interest of 10 percent or more.
There are several types of licenses available in Alaska, including the cannabis retailer license, standard cannabis cultivation facility license, limited cannabis cultivation facility license, and cannabis product manufacturing facility license.
The cannabis retailer license allows the holder to sell up to one ounce of cannabis per day to a customer. Additionally, a cannabis retailer can only purchase cannabis from a cannabis producer or a cannabis processor. However, there are restrictions on when and where cannabis can be sold, and consuming cannabis on licensed premises is strictly prohibited.
A standard cannabis cultivation facility license allows for the operation of a cannabis cultivation facility that is over 500 square feet. This allows the business to plant, propagate, cultivate, harvest, trim, dry, cure, package, or label cannabis. Additionally, with this license type, you are able to sell cannabis to a licensed retail store, to another licensed cannabis cultivation facility, or to a licensed cannabis product manufacturing facility in Alaska. You can also provide samples to licensed cannabis testing facilities for testing purposes.
A limited cannabis cultivation facility license provides all of the privileges of a standard cannabis cultivation facility license, but the facility must be fewer than 500 square feet under cultivation.
A cannabis product manufacturing facility license allows your business to extract cannabis concentrate for sale or formulate or manufacture any cannabis product for sale. With this license type, you can purchase cannabis from a cultivation facility or from another cannabis product manufacturing facility. You can also extract cannabis concentrate, manufacture, refine, process, cook, package, label, and store cannabis products. Additionally, you can sell, distribute, or deliver cannabis extract or any cannabis product to a licensed retail cannabis store or cannabis product manufacturing facility.
