All New Jersey Cannabis LIcense Applications

CannDelta prepares all cannabis license applications in the state of New Jersey. Including: cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, retailer, and delivery.

The CREAMM Act establishes six (6) classes of New Jersey cannabis licenses for recreational (adult-use/non-medical). Applicants, if applicable, are encouraged to apply for a temporary conditional permit. These conditional permits allow a business to legally and lawfully act as a cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or delivery service during such time that the business is in transition to meeting the requirements for a full, standard license.

The Cannabis Regulatory Commission is evaluating an option for a cannabis testing service license to assist cultivators in determining the level of pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and cannabinoid profiles/terpene amounts in the cannabis and cannabis products that cultivators and manufacturers will produce.

New Jersey Cannabis License applications for adult-use (non-medical or recreational) are being accepted today and are reviewed on a rolling basis. Social Equity Businesses, Diversely Owned Businesses, Impact Zone Businesses and applications that received bonus points are receiving priority review, scoring and approval. Once a conditional license is approved, there is a 120-day period to submit a conditional license conversion application. Once your conversion application is submitted, the applications then are prioritized again for approval. It is recommended by CannDelta that, if possible, once a conditional license is approved, that a conditional conversion application is submitted as soon as the next business day to maintain the highest priority level. All conditional New Jersey cannabis license applications are being reviewed before any non-conditional license applications are being reviewed.

Temporary Conditional Permits will be available to allow businesses to lawfully act as a cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, retailer, or delivery service while working towards meeting the requirements for a full New Jersey Cannabis License. The state is prioritizing the scoring of conditional New Jersey Cannabis License applications over standard annual applications

Note, this is not to be confused with New York State. New York’s conditional licenses are temporary licenses only available to “justice involved” individuals in the first round of applications for cannabis retail dispensary licenses. To be considered “justice involve” the applicant must have cannabis-related offense or have an immediate family member with a cannabis related offense, who have experience owning and operating a profitable business.

New Jersey is issuing conditional approval licenses. Conditional licenses allow business operators a path to final licensure while they are finalizing their application components, such as finding and securing a location for their business, and completing construction.

The cost for each New Jersey Cannabis license application is $2,000 (non-refundable) and each license allows for the opening of a single location. Each operator may only hold a maximum of three licenses and operators cannot be vertically integrated i.e. it’s not possible to cultivate, process or manufacture, and distribute, etc.

New Jersey’s “Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance, and Marketplace Modernization” Act legalizes personal use cannabis for adults recreational use, decriminalizes possession of small amounts of cannabis and cannabis products (i.e. dried flower, hashish, shatter, edibles, etc.), and removes “marijuana” as a Schedule I drug.

The CREAMM Act is regulations that authorizes the Cannabis Regulatory Commission to expand and further develop the current Medicinal Cannabis Program, as well as develop, regulate, and enforce the rules and activities associated with recreational cannabis for adults 21 years or over. 

  • The Act requires that State courts and law enforcement expunge people’s records for certain prior marijuana-related offenses;
  • The Act directs the State Legislature to reinvest revenue from cannabis sales to initiatives such as financial support for individuals in Impact Zones; and
  • The Act requires the Cannabis Regulatory Commission to adopt minimum standards to protect the health of medicinal patients and recreational consumers.

Twelve cannabis dispensaries across New Jersey opened for adult-use sales for the first time on April 21, 2022.
Additional applications are currently being accepted and will be awarded on a rolling basis.
