The Destruction Substance Types sub-tab allows a licence holder to customize the cannabis substance types that Grow Technicians regularly destroy, such as seeds, flowering plants, and dried cannabis. For reporting accuracy, licence holders should be as specific as possible when creating destruction substance types. Follow the steps below to add a destruction substance type.

Note: The Seed-to-Sale software groups destruction substance types into three categories: Flowering, Non-flowering, and Untracked. This is to satisfy Canada Revenue Agency's monthly reporting requirements. Before adding a new destruction substance type, consult the Cannabis Act to ensure the correct category is selected.

    • 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 substance type that does not fit neatly into either of the other two categories.
