Start your business the right way

Do you have the proper licensing?

To commercially manufacture cannabis products, apply to the California Department of Public Health for a state-issued license. You must also first get licensed by your city, which is done in a separate process.

The license application and operations requirements can be found here.

Evergreen Law makes sure all your bases are covered when forming a legitimate business in the cannabis industry. We would love to answer your questions regarding the new state and city laws. Schedule a free consultation today or email us any questions.
