The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has been designated the agency responsible for licensing cultivation. It will also establish conditions under which indoor and outdoor cultivation may occur, establish an electronic track-and-trace system to track cannabis from seed to sale, and assist other state agencies in protecting the environment and public health and safety.

For questions about pesticide regulation:

The Department of Pesticide Regulation, in consultation with the Department of Food and Agriculture, shall develop standards for the use of pesticides in cultivation and maximum tolerances for pesticides and other foreign object residue in harvested cannabis.

For questions about manufacturing:

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has been deemed the agency responsible for licensing manufacturers.
