California Marijuana Distributors

In California all marijuana sold at retail shops must be bought through a distributor.

As defined by the state’s Bureau of Cannabis Control a distributor is, “responsible for transporting cannabis goods, arranging for testing of cannabis goods, conducting quality assurance review of cannabis goods to ensure they comply with all packaging and labeling requirements.” Now there’s a difference between a Distributor and a Distributor transport (DT). A DT as defined by the Bureau of Cannabis Control, “Allows a licensee to transport cannabis goods between licensed cultivators, manufacturers, and distributors. A licensee may not transport cannabis goods to a licensed retailer and may not engage in any other distributor activities.”

This is different than every other state regulated cannabis industry. What this means is that if you’re a farmer or product manufacturer you will have to sell your product to a distributor and they manage all of the relationships with the retail shops. It’s an interesting model similar to how the alcohol industry has evolved over time, but this is mandatory. We believe it’s an effort by the state to regulate the product quality by only needing to hold distributors responsible.

Distributors are responsible for labeling and providing test results noting the potency, and it’s safety information for public consumption. The distributors are also somewhat responsible for paying the taxes due from farms and processors as well as the transportation of product in a secure fashion. Since cannabis is such a valuable product by weight the business type requires secure vehicles that can both transport product and transport cash for payment unless retailers are able to via check or debit card. Retailers are going to need distributors to find consistent reliable sources of product. If you’re a retailer, use the directory below to find a distributor to work with!
