NYS Cannabinoid Hemp Licensing May Became Much More Challenging to Obtain

Those looking to apply for Cannabinoid Hemp Licensing in NYS to process, sell, or distribute cannabinoid hemp products may have to jump through several more hoops in the application process due to new proposed regulations.


If adopted, the regulations will require that licensing applications to manufacture cannabinoid hemp products in NYS be accompanied by: 

  1. A summary and description of the products the applicant intends to make; 
  2. Proof of liability insurance;
  3. Evidence of good manufacturing practices; and 
  4. Copies of organizational documents. 


Similarly, an application to sell cannabinoid hemp products will be required to be accompanied by: 

  • A summary and description of the type of product intended for sale;
  • The name and country of origin of the distributor; and 
  • Verification that the applicant will not sell inhalable cannabinoid hemp products to consumers under 21.   


Additionally, even if an cannabinoid hemp processor application is approved, the applicant must still submit numerous items in order to receive a final license (e.g., copy of certificate of occupancy for facility, evidence of Good Manufacturing Practices Audit, and proof of product liability). 


Do you think these additional hurdles in the cannabinoid hemp licensing application process will scare away entrepreneurs from applying for a license?  


If you don't agree or think these proposed regulations are too onerous, you can make your voice heard until July 19, 2021 by emailing: regsqna@health.ny.gov - use I.D. No. HLT-45-20-00002-RP in your subject.

New York State has extended the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums on both residential and commercial properties to August 31st, 2021. (A.7175)

While some states are still struggling to distribute the $45 billion in rental assistance, many renters continue to be behind on their housing payments.
