This is California Cannabis
Statewide Public Education and Outreach
"This is California Cannabis" is designed to promote the state's legal cannabis cultivation market and raise awareness of the support and guidance offered to licensed cannabis growers by CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing, a division of the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
Californians interested in obtaining a commercial cannabis cultivation license will need to complete an online application, which is available in the eLearning section of our website, along with step-by-step instructions and guides. If you have questions about the licensing process, please feel free to contact us by sending an email to CalCannabis@cdfa.ca.gov or call toll-free 1-833-CALGROW (1-833-225-4769) to speak to a licensing specialist.
