Massachusetts Program Information

The Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) welcomes you to the Massachusetts Metrc webpage. Massachusetts’ licensees must utilize the seed-to-sale system to track all marijuana products being cultivated, manufactured, transported, tested, and sold in the Commonwealth.


This portal contains important resources, training, and updates for Marijuana Establishments and their agents. The information and tools provided by Metrc are critical in ensuring that your establishment remains in compliance with the laws and regulations of the state of Massachusetts and the CCC.


We look forward to working with you to ensure a safe, equitable, and effectively run adult use marijuana industry.
