RefWork:Known licensed cannabis cultivators in North America
This reference work covers known cannabis cultivators—using various government and media resources—in North America.
This information is based largely on state-supplied resources and is up-to-date as of February 28, 2020.
Canada's cultivators are licensed by the federal government. The country has 43 cultivation licenses, which can be viewed on their licensed cultivators, processors, and sellers page. A variety of fees are applied to applicants, including application fees, security clearance fees, import/export fees, and annual regulatory fees. Consult the country's Cannabis Fees Order Guide for details.
The state boasts 95 Limited and 117 Standard Marijuana Cultivation Facilities. The state differentiates a "limited" facility as one with 500 square feet or less of grow operation space, whereas "standard" facilities have no such limitation. To review the entire list of 200+ cultivation facilities, go to https://www.commerce.alaska.gov/web/amco/ and look for the link "Licenses and Applications by Status."
Licensing fees for limited are $1,000, and $5,000 for standard.
The government ties cultivation to dispensaries. However, Arizona state law prohibits making public a list of dispensaries, so the state's cultivators/dispensaries are not publicly known.
The five cultivation facilities for Arkansas are:
- Bold Team, LLC (Cotton Plant)
- Delta Medical Cannabis Co. (Newport)
- Natural State Medicinals Cultivation, LLC (White Hall)
- Natural State Wellness Enterprises, LLC (Newport)
- Osage Creek Cultivation, LLC (Berryville)
As of January 19, 2020, four of the five were up and running, with Delta Medical awaiting final inspections.
The five facilities were licensed after paying a $100,000 license fee and a $500,000 performance bond.
The state of California has approximately more than 2,100 unique cannabis adult-use and medicinal-use cultivators of provisional and annual status. As of January 1, 2019, the state no longer has the authority to issue temporary licenses, though normal adult-use and medicinal-use cultivation licenses can still be applied for. To review the entire list of more than 850 unique cultivation businesses (note: some companies have more than one license), go to https://aca6.accela.com/CALCANNABIS/Cap/CapHome.aspx?module=Licenses, select the license type, then select "Active" from the License Status. (Active licenses won't be older than January 1, 2018.)
Application and license fees vary depending on facility type. Consult the FAQ's "How much do application/license fees cost?" for the latest regulatory text indicating these fees.
The state has more than 360 unique medical-use and more than 600 unique adult-use cultivators. To review the two lists in their entirety, go to https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/enforcement/med-licensed-facilities and select the PDF or Excel file labeled "Cultivations" under each column.
Cultivation application and license fees vary based upon operation size. The base fee for everyone is Tier 1 (1 – 1,800 plants) - $1,500.00.
For cultivators who wish to expand their operations, the following is paid in addition to the Tier 1 fee:
- Tier 2 (1,801 – 3,600 plants) - $1,000.00
- Tier 3 (3,601 – 6,000 plants) - $2,000.00
- Tier 4 (6,001 – 10,200 plants) - $4,000.00
- Tier 5 (10,201 – 13,800 plants) - $6,000.00
- Each additional tier of 3,600 plants over Tier 5 - $1,000.00
According to Connecticut's license lookup for medical marijuana producers, the four entities are licensed to cultivate in the state:

The state charges $6,000 for an application fee, as well as a "regulatory assessment" fee, which is not clear in cost (varies from $10,000 to $66,000).
The state has chosen two companies to cultivate for its medical cannabis program:
Further applications are not being accepted at this time. A $20,000 application fee was due for anyone who applied.
After the first wave of approvals in December 2019, the state has 36 unique businesses licensed to cultivate cannabis in the state. To view the list of cultivation facilities, go the licensed facilities page for the state and download the related Excel sheet.
Licensing application fees were $10,000. Applications for cultivation, testing, manufacturing, and dispensary facilities are currently not being accepted.
The medical marijuana program in the state is in a bit of disarray. As Michigan-based New Leaf Cannabis Consulting puts it:
Voters re-approved medical cannabis in the state in Nov. 2016. Dispensaries were supposed to not open until June 2017, but a Montana court ruled that they may reopen immediately. Montana used to have an established medical cannabis dispensary program, but a court ruling upholding a severe state law dismantled the dispensaries, by limiting the maximum number of patients to 3; that portion of the law is now repealed.
As of mid-July 2019, the program had finally bounced back to a patient base similar to pre-2011 levels. The state's language is a bit confusing, but it appears that "Providers" are cultivators, and if that is the case, the state currently has 270 licenses issued for cultivators. Visit the state's program website and click on "Licensed Providers in Complia."
The current number and details of the state's licensed cultivators are unknown. Per an inquiry and a form letter emailed from the Marijuana Enforcement Division of Nevada, "the state is only permitted to release information on open dispensaries," and does not release information on current licensed cultivators. However, a list of provisional certificates awarded in November 2014 can still be found on their site, though many of the names are redacted due to confidentiality laws in the state.
Licensing fees for cultivation facilities differ based on product. Recreational marijuana cultivation has an initial $30,000 licensing fee, with renewal costs at $10,000. Medical marijuana cultivation has an initial $3,000 license, with renewal costs at $1,000.
The state vertically integrates cultivation and dispensation of medical cannabis into alternative treatment centers, with the state currently allowing for five locations run by three entities:
- Prime Alternative Treatment Centers of NH, Inc.
- Sanctuary ATC
- Temescal Wellness, Inc. (two locations)
The state doesn't appear to be accepting new applications, and it's not clear what fees applicants had to pay.
The state vertically integrates cultivation and dispensation of medical cannabis into alternative treatment centers, with the state currently allowing for nine locations run by seven entities:
- Breakwater Alternative Treatment Center Corp.
- CuraLeaf NJ, Inc.
- Compassionate Care Foundation, Inc.
- Garden State Dispensary
- Greenleaf Compassion Center
- Harmony Dispensary
An application period occurred in July 2018 to grant six more licenses. In December 2018, six additional providers were invited to proceed with the application process, though in February 2019 five appeals were filed by rejected applicants and an existing alternative treatment center in regards to the selected six. Due to the litigation, only one those six providers—Rise—has become fully licensed and operational. As of February 2020, more lawsuits have delayed final approvals even further, with no clear conclusion in site.
New Mexico vertically integrates cultivation and distribution. The state calls such licensed entities "licensed non-profit producers" (LNPPs), of which 107 locations are operational. (Go here to see the full list.)
The state is not accepting additional applications at this time. Initial application fee was $10,000, with a license fee of "thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) for the first 150 cannabis plants to be possessed by the non-profit producer, and ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each additional quantity of 50 plants thereafter to be possessed, up to a maximum collective total of 450 cannabis plants."

Additional cultivation applications don't appear to be accepted. An initial $5,000 application fee was required, and a $110,000 certification fee for a two-year license.
