Commercial Cannabis Regulations and Program

About Union City’s Local Regulations 

On January 1, 2018, California legalized cannabis use by adults 21 and older. In response to the changing State laws, Union City has taken steps to ensure proper and legal implementation of cannabis regulations, which have included the adoption of the following ordinances:

The City Council has the authority to choose how many commercial cannabis use permits are issued out at any given time. Through a resolution in November 2017, the number of permits was established at three (3) permits in each category:

  • Cultivation
  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution
  • Testing
  • Medical dispensary

The resolution is still in effect today and does not allow for permits to be authorized for adult-use dispensary. 

Current Commercial Cannabis Use Permitees:

  1. Eden Campus Holdings, LLC for cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and retail at 30540-30544 Union City Blvd.
  2. Jiva Life, LLC for retail for retail at 30547 Union City Blvd 

To date, the City Council has declared intent to award 4 Commercial Cannabis Use permits to the following business:
