New Zealand Cannabis Licence - Application Support
New Zealand Cannabis Licence
New Zealand is on the precipice of a historic vote for adult-use cannabis legalisation. Perhaps by the time you read this, the vote will have already passed. In the meantime, you can start planning your application materials now, because the published regulations are available for everyone to examine-

Because this is the planned law, and it has not passed or been converted into a formal licence application process, the rules and requirements are still likely to change somewhat. On the other hand, the New Zealand cannabis licence application documents required under the currently written law are similar to what we've seen in other countries and US states.
Here are the items you'll want to gather for your New Zealand cannabis production licence:
- Design Plan (You must have a building identified first)
- Security Plan
- Inventory Control Plan
- Waste Disposal Plan
- Recall Plan
- Testing Plan
- Packaging and Labelling Plan
- Quality Assurance Plan
- Record Keeping Plan
With the exception of the Design Plan, which is unique for each applicant, we current have these cannabis plans available in template form, as generic cannabis operating plans that are not NZ specific. View our Complete List of Operating Plans.
In October, we will post a NZ cannabis licensing template set that is complete with policy citations from the government-issued regulations. Buyers of this template set will be eligible for free document updates until the application submission date is finalized by the New Zealand Cannabis Regulatory Authority.

Some of the key components of the upcoming New Zealand cannabis licensing regime are:
- THC levels must be below 15%. This could be difficult to manage since most commercial cultivars easily exceed those levels.
- License applicants gain an advantage in obtaining a license if they can demonstrate a plan to contribute to disadvantaged ethnic groups.
- People over the age of 20 will be able to purchase up to 14g of cannabis at a time from a licenced outlet, and share that same amount with others.
- People will be able to grow 2 plants for personal use at home.
- Micro-cultivation licences will be made available for smaller business entities.
- The government will establish a certain total quantity of cannabis and cannabis products that can be produced, and the licence holders will each produce a proportionate amount of that total, as pre-approved by the Regulatory Authority.
