California Cannabis Track-and-Trace System

The California Cannabis Track-and-Trace (CCTT) system is the program used statewide to record the inventory and movement of cannabis and cannabis products through the commercial cannabis supply chain — from cultivation to sale. The state’s contracted service provider for the CCTT system is the technology company Franwell, Inc., and they are using the METRC software program — the same program now used in Colorado, Oregon, Alaska, and Nevada for their cannabis programs.

All state-issued annual cannabis licenses are required to use the CCTT-METRC system to record, track, and maintain information about their cannabis and cannabis-product inventories and activities. Please note that temporary cannabis licenses are not required to use the system, nor will they be provided access to it. Instead, the state’s emergency regulations require temporary licensees to document all sales and transfers of cannabis and cannabis products between temporary licensees — or between temporary licensees and annual licensees — by manually using paper sales invoices or shipping manifests.
