Applicants for cannabis stores, cultivation and production facilities, independent cannabis testing facilities, and cannabis distributors must have a valid license from the State of Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board (CCB) and zoning approval from Clark County's Department of Comprehensive Planning. Cannabis support businesses are privileged business licenses, and while not licensed by the CCB some regulations still apply. Cannabidiol (CBD) and Hemp business licenses are general licenses and are not regulated under the same statutes as cannabis.
