California regulators and growers met to work on a program to certify cannabis as “comparable to organic.”
- The program, called “O Cal” aims to align with federal standards.
- Draft regulations could be available by the end of 2019.
Separately, a California bill under consideration would strengthen the regulations for county appelations.
- In general, the proposal would prevent companies from using place names, like Humboldt County, in their marketing unless the product actually comes from that place.
