OCal Comparable-to-Organic Cannabis Program

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is creating a cannabis program that will be comparable to the National Organic Program, the federal regulatory program that develops and enforces uniform national standards for organically produced agricultural products sold in the United States. California’s comparable-to-organic cannabis program will begin on January 1, 2021, and applicants will be required to hold an active state cannabis license.
