Monterey, California December 18, 2017, GAIACA became California’s first state-licensed cannabis waste revitalization company, receiving their state license on December 15, 2017.
Created in October, 2016, by Monterey Peninsula natives Jonathan Lee and Garrett Rodewald, GAIACA has been licensed in Del Rey Oaks and now holds a temporary state license to conduct the business of cannabis waste management. State-issued licenses are valid for 120 days, going into effect January 1, 2018, when emergency state regulations drop regarding medicinal and adult-use of cannabis (Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA). The state is currently issuing temporary licenses; annual licenses will not be awarded until after the new year.
COO Garrett Rodewald explains, We are excited to officially be California’s first State licensed cannabis waste management solution. In line with California’s dedication to sustainability, we are committed to contributing to the burgeoning industry by offering a service for cultivators, manufacturers, dispensaries, and testing laboratories alike, that sustainably renders cannabis waste and promotes overall industrial hygiene?
As January 1st approaches, operators within the cannabis industry are rushing to apply for their temporary and/or annual state licenses, essential to operate legally from the beginning of the new year. Temporary licenses will be valid for 120 days, with a permissible 90-day extension period and will act as a bridge to annual licensing.
