California issues 1st licence for Cannabis Business

California on Thursday issued its first group of business licenses for the commercial cannabis temporarily for retailers, distributors, microbusinesses and testing laboratories via its online licensing system, setting the stage for sales to begin in January. The first temporary license was awarded to Pure CA, which does business as Moxie brand products, a company known for its cannabis extracts.

“Last week, we officially launched our online licensing system, and today we’re pleased to issue the first group of temporary licenses to cannabis businesses that fall under the Bureau’s jurisdiction,” Bureau of Cannabis Control Chief Lori Ajax said. “We plan to issue many more before January 1.”
