Getting to Know Metrc in California

The California Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) licenses and regulates all commercial cannabis activity across the state. It is responsible for enforcing all California regulations, including California’s Cannabis Track-and-Trace system (CCTT).

The CCTT system is an online program that all licensees must use statewide to record the inventory and movement of cannabis and cannabis products from seed to sale, including cultivation, manufacturing, retail, and testing.

The DCC has mandated the use of Metrc as the designated seed-to-sale tracking system for all commercial cannabis activity.

Metrc is now the leading track-and-trace solution in the cannabis industry. Established in 2011, the system provides state regulators with a traceable history of every single cannabis-based product sold in their jurisdiction—from cultivation and production to transportation and the final retail sale.
