An Update on Adult-Use Cannabis: May 2022
As the old adage goes…April showers, bring May flowers. It’s an exciting time here in the state of Vermont as we’re on the precipice of adult-use cannabis sales. Many of you may be seeing numerous articles starting that medical dispensaries can begin selling adult-use cannabis on May 1, 2022.
While this is permitted by state regulations, CeresMED will not be ready to serve adult-use cannabis consumers on May 1st. While the official date on which we will begin adult-use sales is still up in the air, we expect it to be near October 1, 2022.
In the spirit of transparency, we want to provide an update on important information and milestones below:
- We are working on our integrated adult-use license application for submission to Vermont’s Cannabis Control Board by May 1, 2022.
- We are awaiting guidance on adult-use license applications and hope to receive at least one integrated license.
- Should we obtain an integrated license and local approval, our plan is to open an adult-use storefront in October, 2022.

Aligned with our corporate values, the Vermont CCB is committed to being conscious of the triple bottom line when it comes to cannabis regulation.
- All packaging for cannabis products are likely to prohibited from using single-use plastic packaging. While this is a great step-forward for our industry and mother earth, this will require an extensive rework to our current packaging solutions, an initiative we have already begun in earnest.

- Patients can purchase high concentration THC products.

We want to thank all Vermont patients and prospective adult-use customers for their excitement and patience during this transitional time. We looking forward to serving both the medicinal and adult-use markets with the quality products and service we have become known for over the last 10 years in Vermont!
