Product Standards and Classifications

The CDPH regulations specify standards for cannabis products, including restrictions on the types of products can be sold and the types of ingredients that may be included (§40300-40308). In addition, the regulations specify product classifications for cannabis products (§40100), which affect the THC limits, packaging and labeling, and more. The three main product classifications are:

  • Edible Cannabis Product
  • Cannabis Concentrate
  • Topical Cannabis Product

The FAQs below will help you to determine your product's classification. If you still have questions after reading the regulations and answers below, please email us at MCSB@cdph.ca.gov.
