Washington issues cannabis licenses for cannabis producers, processors, transporters, retailers, researchers, cooperatives, and testing laboratories. The state's cannabis licenses are issued by the Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board (WLCB).
This license permits the licensee to produce, harvest, trim, cure, dry, and package cannabis into lots for sale to licensed cannabis processors and other cannabis producer licensees. The Washington cannabis producer license also authorizes the licensee to produce and sell:
Washington's cannabis producer licenses are separated into three categories, each with specific maximum square footage of field on which cannabis cultivation may be conducted:
The Washington cannabis processor license authorizes the licensee to process, cure, dry, package, and label cannabis concentrates, usable cannabis, and cannabis-infused products for sale at wholesale to cannabis retailers and other cannabis processors.
The cannabis transporter license allows the licensee to physically deliver or transport cannabis, cannabis-infused products, and cannabis concentrates between licensed cannabis establishments within Washington State.
This license permits the licensee to sell only usable cannabis, cannabis paraphernalia, cannabis-infused products, cannabis concentrates, and lockable boxes to store marijuana in retail outlets to anyone aged 21 and older.
The Washington cannabis research license authorizes the licensee to possess, process, and produce cannabis for the limited research purposes outlined in Section 69.50.372 of the Revised Code of Washington.
A Washington cooperative license or registration is issued to a cooperative formed by qualifying medical cannabis patients or designated providers in order to share responsibility for growing and processing marijuana. However, the growing and processing of marijuana may only be for the medical use of the cooperative members.
Washington's Liquor and Cannabis Board issues approval for laboratories to test marijuana and marijuana products in the state to ensure that they meet the required quality standards and that they are appropriately labeled.
