We last looked at the licenses for growing cannabis in the middle of the year. Today’s post contains an update on the newly issued licenses as well as on the total licenses. By mid-year, California and Oklahoma were responsible for over 90% of the new cultivation licenses. That is down slightly to 89%, despite California and Oklahoma having issued 964 new cultivation licenses since the middle of the year, albeit in a unilateral fashion.
- The licenses for active cannabis cultivation in the database are now 17,015
- This year 4,081 new cultivation licenses were added
- Michigan is still a distant third with 227 licenses added to 414 total this year
- 89% of the new licenses were in California and Oklahoma
For this and upcoming leaderboards, we’ll also be reporting the total number of licenses we’re tracking. The table above shows the number of newly created licenses, but does not show the effects of licenses that have been canceled, revoked, or administratively withdrawn. The following long table shows everything we have tracked.
