The Era of Clean Cannabis Has Come to California. Here Are the Surviving Brands

[Updated Aug 21]

In the old days, you just had to grow bud to sell it. Then you had to grow good bud. Now—you have to grow clean, good bud.

The California cannabis industry had a hard reset July 1, when testing regulations wiped everything but the cleanest, most pure and consistent products from the state’s retail shelves.

It’s going to be months for most brands to clean up their act, get it packaged correctly and get in line for testing on the way back to retail store. Still, some brands planned ahead and were ready on Day 1 with tested, compliant product.

Here is the list of brands surviving the California #weedapocalypse of 2018, according to our best sources. Call ahead to your local retailer to ensure your brand is in stock. This list will expand as we hear more. (Email your compliant brands news to California Editor David Downs david.downs@leafly.com)

  • Dr. G

    You forgot Himalaya. They are #1 brand in Sacramento by far. Pretty sure they are #1 most popular in East Bay as well. They are definitely compliant and have stayed on shelves the entire time.

  • Korova should be listed in the flower category as well as the edibles section. Please fix.

  • Aaron Dolson

    Hello, Manzanita and Madrone beverage company here, makers of 10mg Lemon Lime, Ginger and Cola “The Fizz” we are also fully compliant and currently being sold in select clubs Northern California
