License / Royalty Terms

2 posts in this topic

I’m working with someone who has created a strain that I would like to grow for them and for me.  

I will use it in my products and potentially sell to others.


What licensing / royalty terms are common for cannabis?

Well, that is an interesting question indeed.


First of all, Welcome to StrainHunters. 


I encourage you to open and read the message I just now sent you.  Further, I encourage you to open a Topic in "Introduce Yourself" so that others can welcome you in style.


In my opinion, the deal that you strike between your friend and you is private;  I am unaware of any industry standard.


Because the federal governmentrs of the U.S.A., Canada and Australia consider all cannabis transactions as illegal, then in those lands, any cannabis contract is illegal at the federal level, and therefore there cannot exist any federal authority to regulate or enforce any such licenses.


In the F.S.A. (Free States of America, those states where medical and/or recreational use of cannabis have been legalized or partly legalized), then each state will have different rules at the state, county and city levels.  Those are the authorities who must be asked for the details.


There is a member here in StrainHunters called "Big Sur" who seems vsry well versed in these regulations.  Click on the messages icon (the little envelope icon at the top of the page, then click on "compose" and enter his name.  Then write your question to him.


I sent you a message in that same message buffer.  It should help you set your preferences and get going in the forum quick-time.


Hope this helps.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
