The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) has named the cannabis manufacturer and transporter applicants selected to advance in the licensing process.

The three cannabis product manufacturers and one transporter were chosen from a pool of social equity applicants, and the DCP will now conduct background checks on the businesses before issuing provisional licenses, according to the Hartford Business Journal.

State officials selected Bay Breeze Botanical Inc., Golden Hanuman Inc. and High Regard CT LLC to receive the cannabis product manufacturer licenses, the news outlet reported, and selected Grow Green Girls Inc. to advance in the process for a cannabis transporter license.

The DCP has notified the applicants that they can complete the next steps to secure a provisional license, including submitting additional information for a background check, the Hartford Business Journal reported.

The application review process will take several weeks, according to the news outlet, and applicants will be required to pay licensing fees when the process is completed.

The remaining social equity applicants that were not selected in this licensing lottery will be included in the upcoming general lottery, which will be conducted by the UConn School of Pharmacy, the Hartford Business Journal reported.
