Pennsylvania Grower Application

Pennsylvania Grower Applications for cannabis won’t be available for a little while, but you can read all about what may happen in SB 350. We cover the terms and conditions of the statute that may one day become the Pennsylvania Growers license.

With the dialogue surrounding Cannabis and Cannabis Laws finally opening to accommodate clashing views, the news of two Pennsylvania senators introducing a bill to legalize the use of recreational marijuana did not come as a huge surprise. Senate Bill 350 that aims to legalize the use of recreational marijuana, was introduced by State Senators Sharif Street and Daylin Leach in Harrisburg on Tuesday.

Leach believes that if approved, the Bill will finally be able to keep the cannabis black market in check and induce regulation of marijuana use in the state. Senate Bill 350 contains some fundamental ideas and rules for people seeking approval to grow Cannabis for personal or commercial use. This article elaborately discusses all tenets related to the Pennsylvania Grower application and the regulations the Bill seeks to impose on Growers.

Who are the Homegrowers, Microgrowers, and Growers?

To be able to understand Senate Bill 350, it is crucial to understand the idea behind the proposed three categories of hemp plant producers: Homegrowers, Microgrowers, and Growers.

According to Senate Bill 350, the term Homegrowers refers to people allowed by the department to grow cannabis for personal use. The term Microgrowers is used to refer to people permitted by the department to grow marijuana at home to sell it to a dispensary or processor. The third category, called the Growers, includes individuals, associations, corporations, entities, and partnerships, whose total cannabis crop size exceeds 150,000 square feet of outdoor space or 60,000 square feet of indoor space.

The proposed bill imposes the most stringent rules on the Growers, and this article will focus on the specific category of Growers.


The proposed bill makes a clear distinction between the concepts of growersmicrogrowers, and homegrowers.

According to the proposed bill, individuals whose total crop size exceeds 1,50,000 square feet of outdoor space or 60,000 square feet of indoor space will fall under the category of Growers. Individuals permitted by the department to grow cannabis for processing purposes or to be sold to a dispensary will fall under the category of ‘Microgrowers.’ Finally, the bill describes ‘homegrowers’ as any person allowed by the department to grow cannabis for personal use.

It is essential to understand the difference between these three categories as legal restrictions and limitations placed on all categories vary widely. This article focuses on the formalities surrounding the Pennsylvania Homegrower application process, as proposed by the new bill, as well as the restrictions that the proposed bill puts on homegrowers.
