California's Cannabis License Search System
Do you want to know if an existing business has a valid license issued by the Bureau of Cannabis Control? Now it’s easier to do that. The bureau announced it has released an updated version of its online license search system. Industry stakeholders, licensees, and members of the public may now use the updated search to find information about state-licensed retailers, distributors, testing laboratories, microbusinesses, and temporary cannabis events.
To perform a search in the new interface, click on the following link – http://online.bcc.ca.gov/. Proceed to open the ‘License Search’ tab, select your search criteria, provide a response to the reCAPTCHA, and select the ‘Search’ button.
Users may now search by the following criteria:
- License Type
- License Number
- License Status
- Legal Business Name
- Business Owner Name
The license search provides premises locations for Bureau licensees by city, county, and zip code. For storefront retailers, the license search system also provides the physical street address of the licensed premises. In addition to these location-based search results, the license search provides the commercial cannabis activities that a microbusiness may conduct.
