The Cannabis Legal Group has an excellent primer on how to get a Michigan marijuana microbusiness license:
In Michigan, a microbusiness license allows a person or company to:
- grow up to 150 cannabis plants,
- process cannabis into concentrates, edibles, or other infused products,
- package the finished products, and
- sell to adults who are over the age of 21.
However, a microbusiness cannot sell or transfer any products to any other adult-use establishments.
In other words, a microbusiness license allows you to operate as a vertically-integrated cannabis business that grows, processes, and sells its own cannabis at retail to adults over 21 years old-and no one else. Imagine if Founder’s Brewing Company or Bell’s Brewery-two of Michigan’s most award-winning craft breweries with an incredible catalog of popular beers to choose from-could only sell their products at one place. The consumer demand for Founder’s and Bell’s unique, high-quality craft beers would attract visitors from all across Michigan and nationwide to buy products from each company’s only location.
This is the type of business model contemplated under a microbusiness license It provides an opportunity to carve out a niche in Michigan’s cannabis industry by cultivating, processing, and selling unique strains of flower and other “craft” cannabis products straight to consumers.
