Email Alert: CDFA Meeting Notice—Comparable-to-Organic Working Group Meeting on July 24

15 July 2019

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.

CDFA's CalCannabis Cultivation Licensing Division is hosting several comparable-to-organic working group meetings in anticipation of the program's implementation. The next meeting is on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, from 8am to 11am, at 2750 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 200, Sacramento, CA 95833. If you cannot attend in person, a conference call-in number will be available; for information on participating by phone, please send an email to Annie Kim at

The meeting agenda is posted online.
