Georgia regulators are taking applications to process and manufacture medical marijuana oil for the state’s limited program.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Access to Medical Cannabis Commission on Nov. 23 began the licensing process for businesses seeking to manufacture the “low-THC” MMJ oil that Georgia is making available to its 14,000 registered patients.
Manufacturers have until Dec. 28 to apply, and licenses are expected to be issued by March 2021.
Then, the next step in getting the program up and running is for the commission to create rules for licensing medical marijuana oil dispensaries
THC potency is capped at 5%, under Georgia law, and only six companies will receive permits to grow the limited medical marijuana – two Class 1 100,000-square-foot facilities and four Class 2 50,000-square foot facilities.
The program has taken a while to develop.
