The application window for delivery services in Connecticut’s emerging recreational cannabis market opened Thursday.
The window is set to last for 90 days and end May 18. Delivery services include businesses that are licensed to deliver cannabis and cannabis products to consumers, qualifying patients and caregivers, according to the state Department of Consumer Protection’s website.
The licenses will be awarded through a lottery system, and half will go to social equity licenses. The state plans to issue five social equity and five general licenses in the first lottery round.
Social equity status is determined by income and residency.
Application windows for other types of cannabis businesses started opening earlier this month. Open application windows include retailers and micro-cultivators, among other business types.
Other application windows are set to open on a rolling basis through March.
Applications are available online. Those with questions can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
