Cannabis: Weights and Measures Considerations

Packages and their labels should enable consumers to obtain accurate information as to the quantity of the contents and should facilitate value comparisons.

The Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch, a division of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), is responsible for regulating and licensing the manufacturers of cannabis-infused edibles and products for both medical and nonmedical use. Their Frequently Asked Questions page includes information to assist cannabis manufacturers and other businesses in understanding and evaluating compliance with packaging and labeling requirements. Licensee packaging and Labeling checklists can be found on this CDPH Resources webpage.

For weights and measures-related questions about cannabis packaging and labeling, please contact a county weights and measures office.
