CAN: B.C. enables farm-to-gate sales of cannabis products

The Province is introducing a new cannabis retail license that will allow eligible federally licensed cannabis producers to sell non-medical cannabis products from stores located at their cultivation site.

When the producer retail store (PRS) license comes into effect on Nov. 30, 2022, applications will be open through the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch’s (LCRB) liquor and cannabis licensing portal. All federal standard cultivator, micro-cultivator, and nursery license holders will be eligible to apply.

This license was created as part of the Province’s commitment to enabling farm-to-gate cannabis sales in British Columbia. It is, intended to support the development of a robust, diverse and sustainable legal cannabis economy that is inclusive of Indigenous and rural communities.

“The fourth anniversary of the legalization of cannabis in B.C. is around the corner, and we continue to look for ways to support the growth of the legal market while providing safe and accessible options for British Columbians,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “The PRS license is another way we are working to support the success of B.C.-based producers.”
