In the old days, you just had to grow bud to sell it. Then you had to grow good bud. Now—you have to grow clean, good bud.

The California cannabis industry had a hard reset July 1, when testing regulations wiped everything but the cleanest, most pure and consistent products from the state’s retail shelves.

It’s going to be months for most brands to clean up their act, get it packaged correctly and get in line for testing on the way back to retail store. Still, some brands planned ahead and were ready on Day 1 with tested, compliant product.

Here is the list of brands surviving the California #weedapocalypse of 2018, according to our best sources. Call ahead to your local retailer to ensure your brand is in stock. This list will expand as we hear more.
