Cannabis license applications are regulated by the Arizona Department of Health and Human Service (ADHS).
To become a cultivator in Arizona, you simply need first to become a dispensary. This can be done by application or after the fact but must be approved by the Department. The registration cost to become a dispensary in Arizona is $5000, with the renewal cost being $1000.
If you end up changing your dispensary location or end up adding a location, such as adding a cultivation site, then you will incur another cost of $2500. In total, becoming an Arizona cultivation license will essentially cost you $7500 at the initiation.
