New Mexico’s Cannabis Control Division (CCD) announced Dec. 23 that regulators are now accepting applications for Integrated Microbusiness licenses, which allow small businesses to grow, manufacture and sell cannabis products.

“Small businesses are the heart of New Mexico’s economy,” Cannabis Control Division Director Kristen Thomson said in a public statement. “By creating a streamlined licensing process that allows microbusinesses to succeed in every sector in the cannabis industry, the state is continuing its commitment to standing up an industry that reflects New Mexico values.”

Applicants can now access the online licensing application system at any time.

The CCD announced earlier in December that it was opening the application process for manufacturing and retail businesses, and regulators awarded the first producer licenses Dec. 15.

New Mexico’s adult-use cannabis sales are set to launch by April 1 under the Cannabis Regulation Act, which passed last year to legalize cannabis in the state.
