Where can I find the cannabis experience when I’m at the Fair?
Check out the California State Fair’s “Map & Directions” landing page (found here) to find details about various areas within the Fair, including a site map for the fairgrounds. The Cannabis Experience is located in Building 6, with directional signage and wayfinding to the sales and consumption areas included there as well.
Where can I learn more about the cannabis competition?
You can learn more about all of the State Fair competitions here, find specifics on the cannabis competition here, and immerse yourself in details about the competition and winners here.
Why has the CA State Fair added cannabis to its competition line up?
Cannabis ticks all the boxes for inclusion as a coveted Awards competition. Cannabis became legal for recreational adult use after a voter-approved initiative in 2016. California’s cannabis industry is highly regulated, culturally significant, part of our agricultural legacy and essential to the California economy.
Can I bring alcohol into the cannabis experience? Can I purchase alcohol while inside of the cannabis experience?
Pursuant to State regulations, absolutely no alcohol is allowed inside the cannabis experience (exhibit, sales area, consumption area). You will be required to finish your alcoholic beverage or throw it away prior to entering the cannabis area.
What products will be available for sale?
We will have many of the California Cannabis Competition Award winning products available for sale along with products from nearly a hundred of the State’s favorite brands. The website will be updated to include a link to the menu during the Fair.
What are the daily purchasing limits?
California law allows you to purchase up to 28 grams of non-concentrated cannabis (flower) and eight grams of concentrated cannabis.
