As a result, we are transitioning this event to an online only live streaming event.

We look forward to seeing you online on April 2 - in the meantime, stay safe & stay healthy.
The Cannabis Industry Club at the Hass School of Business and the Cannabis Law Society at the Berkeley School of Law and the International Cannabis Bar Association (INCBA) join together to host a symposium on the business opportunities and legal issues that cannabis appellations present to cannabis farmers in California. The business case is clear: appellations can promote regional products and local businesses, prevent the misrepresentation of a product’s origin, and support consumer confidence about a product’s origin and characteristics.
By law, by January 2021, the CDFA has the responsibility to develop the process by which cultivators may establish appellations, each appellation a certified designation that identifies the geographical origin of a product and how that product was produced. The Rulemaking process commenced on February 20, 2020 when the CDFA released the proposed regulations for cannabis appellations of origin, starting a 45-day public comment period; all interested parties are encouraged to submit comments about the proposed regulations.
