Incorrect Product Registration Notifications

We are aware of an error in a communication sent to some licensees over the past few days.

CCB staff recently sent an email to licensees with incomplete product registration submissions. However, in processing the list of licensees, some licensees received incomplete notifications for product registrations that they did not submit. This was an error on our part, and we are working to remedy the issue.

Hop Latent Viroid Detected in Vermont

A highly contagious cannabis pathogen, Hop Latent Viroid (also referred to as HLV, HpLV, HpLVd, HLVd, or “dudding” disease) has been detected at a licensed tier 1 cultivation site in Vermont.

Physical symptoms of HLVd can be hard to detect but may include stunted plant growth and under-developed trichomes. Often, the disease is not diagnosed until harvest and potency testing – HLVd-positive cannabis may contain roughly half the THC of healthy plants.
