How to Add a Cannabis Form

A cannabis form is the specific form of cannabis in a Bulk Lot. For each stage of production, Processing Technicians Create Work Orders to convert the Bulk Lot from one form to another–for instance, from Oil Extract to Capsules or Gummy Bears. Customize the list of available cannabis forms through the process below.

Note: Ample Organics allows you to define each cannabis form by one of three categories: Flowering, Non-flowering, and Untracked. This is, in part, to satisfy Canada Revenue Agency's monthly reporting requirements. Before adding a new cannabis form, consult the Cannabis Act to ensure the correct category is selected.

  1. In the Productions module, open the Settings tab.

  2. Click into the Cannabis Forms sub-tab.

  3. Click New. This opens a Create Cannabis Form modal.

  4. Enter a unique Name for the new cannabis form in the field provided.

  5. Open the CRA Reporting Category drop-down menu, and select the cannabis form's category.

    • Flowering material is defined by the CRA as "the whole or any part (other than viable seeds) of an inflorescence of a cannabis plant at any stage of development, including the infructescence stage of development. Inflorescence is commonly defined as a combination of the flowers and the ultimate small twigs of the branching system subtending the flowers. This includes what is commonly known in the industry as the bud and the small sugar leaves or other materials (bracts, stems, etc.)"

    • Non-flowering material is defined by the CRA as "any part of a cannabis plant other than flowering material, viable seeds and a part of the plant that is a non-viable seed, a mature stalk without any leaf, flower, seed or branch of the plant, fiber derived from a stalk of the plant, and the root or any part of the root of the plant."

    • Untracked refers to a cannabis form that does not fit neatly into either of the other two categories.

  6. Click Save to add the new cannabis form to the list.


The Productions Settings tab also allows Processing Technicians and QA Associates to Add a New Terpene and Add a New Food Allergen.
