      SACRAMENTO, February 20, 2020 - The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) released proposed regulations today for appellations of origin for cannabis. The release of these regulations marks the official start of a 45-day public comment period provided under California law. All interested parties are encouraged to submit comments about the proposed regulations.
      An appellation of origin is a protected designation that identifies the geographical origin of a product and how that product was produced. This program will promote regional cannabis products and local businesses, prevent the misrepresentation of a cannabis productís origin, and support consumer confidence about a cannabis productís origin and characteristics.
      Per Business and Professions Code Section 26063(b), CDFA is required to develop the process by which state-licensed cannabis cultivators may establish appellations of origin by January 1, 2021. CDFA proposes amendments to Chapter 1, and adoption of Chapter 2, within Title 3 of the California Code of Regulations, to develop the process for establishing cannabis appellations of origin and provide additional clarification on the use of county of origin.
      Comments on the proposed regulations may be submitted until Monday, April 6, 2020, via email to CDFA.CalCannabis_Appellations@cdfa.ca.gov or by mail to:
