California Cannabis Portal
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.
If there’s something you’re looking for and cannot find, we’re happy to look into adding new information and features as they’re needed. You can get in touch with us by submitting a website feedback form, which can be found on the ‘Contact Us’ page.
