Let's face it, a rapidly growing ten billion dollar industry doesn't come along every day. An opportunity of this magnitude demands an association that goes beyond what the industry needs today. NACB is focused on defining a future that is prosperous, stable, and safe.
The NACB’s National Standards are developed through a deliberative and inclusive process. We take input from government, NACB Members, and subject matter experts into careful consideration in initially drafting the standard. We then work with those stakeholders to refine the standard before soliciting comments from the public. Every comment will be reviewed and considered by the NACB and may result in a revision of the standard. Following the review period, a new draft of the standard will be circulated to NACB Members for a final vote to approve and adopt it.
Packaging and labeling of products was chosen as the NACB's inaugural standard because it impacts so many issues related to public health and safety.

Licensed cannabis business members can ask to sit on the NACB Standards Governance Board and participate in the creation of National Standards on topics like packaging, labeling, advertising, laboratory standards, security, and more. With a membership in the NACB, licensed cannabis business owners can shape the future of the U.S. cannabis industry.
