The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has provided updated resources regarding packaging and labeling requirements for cannabis and cannabis products. 

In an effort to streamline the packaging and labeling review process, the Cannabis Distribution Association has developed visual examples of packaging for cannabis and cannabis products, and a detailed Packaging & Labeling Compliance Checklist.

Please check the CDA website for updated versions as regulations change. To view the complete packaging and labeling instructions from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), please click here. Included in the documentation are the following:
