Dealer’s License (DL) – Cannabis

Dealer's License (DL)

Beyond the License to produce, cultivate and sell cannabis as per the Licensed Producer (LP) requirements, certain activities such as  processing and extraction, lab testing, importing, exporting to international markets, distribution to other licensed producers or dealer license holder requires a special license issued by the Office of Controlled Substances (OCS) called a Dealer’s License or “DL” , the common acronym used. Note that a Dealer’s License is required for activities associated with Cannabidiol (CBD) (a schedule 1 narcotic) and any other drug classified and licensed as a controlled substance.
