With some social equity cannabis businesses already moving forward in the licensing process following their lottery selection, the state has announced the first wave of general applicant retailer and micro-cultivator lottery winners.
The state Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) on Thursday announced the names of six retailers and two micro-cultivators moving forward in the licensing process. The eight businesses will join their social equity-qualifying counterparts in finalizing work before being issued provisional licenses.
The retail lottery winners are:
The micro cultivator winners are:
Some winners in both categories are familiar LLCs in Connecticut’s adult-use cannabis licensing process and were named last month as winners in social equity lotteries.
For example, Chillax was also selected for a social equity retailer license in August.
Shangri-La was among 16 businesses that had their disproportionately impacted area cultivator status, not subject to the lottery, approved by the state. The company also was picked for a social equity retailer license last month.
Slap Ash also won a social equity retailer license. It was also among the first businesses to be issued a social equity retailer provisional license.
For all license types, the general lottery includes applicants that applied directly to the general lottery in addition to applicants that weren’t selected in the social equity lottery.
Now, these approved applicants and their backers must submit additional information for background checks conducted by a third-party processing company. This process is expected to take several weeks, officials from DCP said. After the background check review, applicants must pay the required fees per licensing type.
