California Cannabis Portal
Welcome to California’s Cannabis Web Portal! It is our goal to make this site a valuable resource and a one-stop shop for all things related to the state’s effort to regulate the cannabis industry.
The site is currently in the process of being developed, so please check back regularly for new content – especially as we move toward January 1, 2018. At that time we hope to have plenty of information related to the application process for licensing and news from all three of the state’s licensing authorities, as well as information for consumers.
We hope you find everything you’re looking for. Please give us your thoughts! If there’s something you’re looking for and cannot find, we’re happy to look into adding new information and features to the site.
Site development will be an ongoing process, and we’re happy to have you with us.
