Oregon Has Received Almost 900 Rec Applications

Nearly 900 recreational marijuana license applications have been submitted in Oregon so far, indicating intense interest from entrepreneurs.

According to data from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) as of April 14, the state has received:

  • 589 applications for cultivation sites
  • 151 for retail stores
  • 67 for processors (infused products makers)
  • 42 for wholesale business
  • Four for testing labs

In addition, another 467 applications are still either in the “draft” phase or are incomplete, which means the total could soon jump to more than 1,300

Many of the 333 licensed medical dispensaries that have signed up with the state to sell recreational cannabis before the program is up and running have applied for adult-use licenses, an OLCC spokesman said in an email.

The agency expects to begin issuing rec permits by the end of the month.

There are no license caps for recreational businesses in Oregon, and every applicant will receive a license unless deemed ineligible for some reason.

The applications are most concentrated around Portland and surrounding counties, as well as Eugene – which includes the University of Oregon – and Jackson County, which borders northern California.
