I am making this thread to document and share info along my way in licensing an LP. There is a lack of info out there in relation to this process and I hope to fill in the blanks for those who need. I am also looking for your help and guidance as well. I think the true leaders and innovates of this market, are the people who built and advanced this market to the point it is.
As of now, we have secured funding . We are deciding between two well know consulting firms. They will help us pick of one of several properties we have secured on contingency lease. We hope to renovate existing industrial space. We feel as though this may be cheapest entry into market. We are prepared to build facility or renovate an existing structure also. This week will be big in deciding that direction.
Much of our time to this point has been spent trying to navigate this process and learn as much as we can. HC , in my opinion, is intentionally hiding info and making this process as difficult as possible. Its a designed attempt to stifle and limit market entries. They have designed this system to be cost prohibitive to the average Canadian who would like to participate in this market. They have also used layers of bureaucracy and plausible deniability to hide and obfuscate information.Thats why I am doing this thread. I hope to pass all that hidden info on to all of you.
Also, they have allowed outdoor growing as a canard. Its a mechanism we feel they are using to destroy small scale market entries. Big companies are being forced to destroy outdoor crops as they dont meet testing standards. Out door was hopeful in the sense that micro filtration in extraction process renders product medical grade sterile through high filtration. What has happened is , aviation fuel fallout contaminates the material in a way it cant be filtered. This will ruin every outdoor crop for market viability. You think HC is telling Canadians that? Nope! tThey know it to! In turn, it will ruin every mom and pop grower who thought there expense into licensing was going to be recouped through outdoor growing. Its all meant to break early entries and further consolidate market for the ones given first mover status through there cozy relationships with sitting govs.
This market should be open to all that have sacrificed and tiled to create it. I hope I can do my small part to help those people in.
Post any questions or comments. I will do my best to help you out.
We are very excited to take this journey . Looking forward to sharing it with you and hopefully helping even one of you make it in to. We have to be at the table with these guys in order to flip it over on them all.
The first bit of info I will pass onto all of you that they LOVE to hide... Spot prices for Cannabis in the wholesale market. I dont have the actual call sheets yet but, I know from seeing them that its average, 3200$ per kg average right now for flower. 8000$/kg for concentrates. Thats wholesale! In Ontario, there will be no direct sales as of now. That dyke Wynne tried to create a complete monopoly and Ford is breaking it up. All products must be sold to the Ontario wholesaler who then marks them up like Deebo on the corner and redistribute them to retail outlets. There is talk of a flagging mechanism inside market to ensure farm to gate sales. This terrifies big Lps with Ford in office. He has ruined there little collusion plan with dyke Wynne and has limited them to one retail outlet per LP. Farm to gate local micros are going to destroy them with farm to gate sales. They know it to.
Gotta go. Post any questions you have. i will try and help...
