Although this is my first Cannabis venture, I don’t anticipate it being my last. I know that I will be teaming with 3C when I go through this process again. I was previously the CEO of a 150 store retail pharmacy chain, so I understand the importance and value in selecting the right consultant. Our group would extend 3C our highest recommendation and our utmost confidence.

I have worked with many consultants in the past, but I have NEVER seen such a great team working so hard to succeed on an application. I am and will forever be impressed about you, and how fast and professionally you took the approach on this task.

Lars Nielsen
CEO, Cantiva ApS and Relief ApS

I have worked closely with the Team at 3C for more than a year, and they have exceeded my expectations. Whether they are helping cultivators optimize operations, or assisting retailers with sourcing organic products, their working knowledge of the entire value chain is evident in all that they do. They have demonstrated - with ethics and integrity - an ability to understand client needs, develop solutions and mobilize resources efficiently, effectively and in a timely manner. Simply put, the Team at 3C Consulting is world-class.

Nic and 3C were a significant help to my indoor cultivation operation. Their unique knowledge allowed me to increase yields and develop processes that saved me time, energy, and money. 3C offered advice on nearly every aspect of my grow from propagation, ventilation and lighting to plant nutrition, pest control, and harvesting. I implemented the suggestions successfully and would recommend 3C’s services without hesitation. I will definitely utilize their services in the future, especially when I am developing my next site.

Illinois Adult Use Craft Grower, Infuser, and Transporter License Application Deadline Extended, Again

“When the rules to play the game that you’re playing change, you’ve gotta adapt your strategy and play the game differently; otherwise, you’re going to lose.”

The original deadline for the Illinois Adult Use Craft Grower, Infuser, and Transporter license applications was March 16. As COVID-19 made it’s way to the United States, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker proactively extended the application deadline to March 30, via Executive Order 2020-03, for applicants that had not yet submitted in person. 

To flatten the curve of Coronavirus cases in Illinois, Governor Pritzker instated a stay-at-home and school closure order on March 21. These mandates were extended via executive order on April 1 and will remain in effect through at least April 30. Due to the disruption of day-to-day life from COVID-19, the Governor signed Executive Order 2020-17 on March 28, which extended the deadline for Adult-Use Cannabis Craft Grower, Infuser, and Transporter license applications a second time. All applications must now be submitted via United States Postal Service certified mail and postmarked on or before the new April 30, 2020 deadline. Due to the unknown timeline of the Coronavirus pandemic, fingerprinting, and zoning verification deficiencies will be allowed, see below for the complete details. For those who have already applied, you may now resubmit a revised application. Please take the time to review the specific details of these changes below.

Since the World Health Organization deemed the Coronavirus (i.e., COVID-19) outbreak a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, government bodies on every level—local, statewide, provincial, and national—have issued various quarantine measures (and in most cases complete lockdowns) to prevent COVID-19 from spreading further. Leading medical experts around the globe anticipate that incidents of COVID-19 will peak in the next two months, and thus will be critical for containing the virus. Each day, more cases of COVID-19 are becoming increasingly prevalent, and its impact is felt in all industries, including cannabis, America’s fastest-growing industry to date.
