SACRAMENTO, January 9, 2018 – The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Division, along with the Bureau of Cannabis Control and the California Department of Public Health, are offering 14 workshops in January and February on California’s Cannabis Track-and-Trace system. The system will be used statewide to record the inventory and movement of cannabis and cannabis products through the commercial cannabis supply chain—from cultivation to sale.

The workshops will provide a general overview of how the track-and-trace system works and how it will be used by all state cannabis licensees, including those with licenses for cannabis cultivation, manufacturing, retail, distribution, testing labs, and microbusinesses.

Registration is not required; seating is first come, first served. Additionally, on February 2, the 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. workshop will be livestreamed and a link to the livestream will be posted on the CalCannabis website at the end of this month.
