California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 34012(a)(2)
(a) Effective January 1, 2018, there is hereby imposed a cultivation tax on all harvested cannabis that enters the commercial market upon all cultivators. The tax shall be due after the cannabis is harvested and enters the commercial market.
(2) The tax for cannabis leaves shall be set at two dollars and seventy-five cents ($2.75) per dry-weight ounce.
What does this mean? Cannafornians can expect to pay more for cannabis products due to a $2.75 per ounce cultivation tax for shake (which is generally used for shatter and everything else!).
