CalCannabis: What We Do
CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing, a division of the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), ensures public safety and environmental protection by licensing and regulating commercial cannabis cultivators in California. CalCannabis also manages the state’s track-and-trace system, which tracks all commercial cannabis and cannabis products—from cultivation to sale. CalCannabis is organized into three branches: Licensing, Compliance and Enforcement, and Administration.

Welcome to the state of California’s Cannabis Web Portal! It is our goal to make this website a valuable resource and a one-stop shop for all things related to the state’s effort to regulate the cannabis industry.
Our daily updates feature essential information related to the state’s commercial cannabis regulations and guidelines, the licensing application process, and announcements from the state’s three cannabis licensing authorities and their business partners. The website is currently in the process of being developed, so please check back regularly for new content.
