Congratulations to New York Cannabis Retail License Winners



Just a few days before the Thanksgiving holiday in November 2022, New York’s Office of Cannabis Management announced the approval of 36 CAURD licenses, giving New Yorkers more reasons to rejoice and be thankful. The OCM also announced that qualifying businesses can launch cannabis delivery services before opening their brick-and-mortar dispensaries. New York’s adult-use cannabis retailers are projected to generate over $1 billion in sales in 2023, growing to around $2.5 billion by 2026, according to the 2022 MJBiz Factbook. The first group of Conditional Adult-Use Retail Dispensary licensees include 28 individuals with marijuana convictions or family members who’d been arrested for the possession of cannabis.

The list of New York cannabis dispensary winners includes a diverse mix of people and businesses, and social equity is the foremost priority for regulatory authorities. A total of up to 175 CAURD licenses will be issued by 2023, with a maximum of 150 individual applicants and 25 non-profit organizations. Eventually, license applications will be sent to the Cannabis Control Board for ongoing review on a rolling basis. Individual licensees will receive support from the social equity cannabis investment fund, which is being funded by licensing fees and cannabis industry revenue collected by the state. This has been a momentous step in kicking off the legal cannabis retail industry in New York, and congratulations to all the CAURD license winners.
