Nevada Program Information
The Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board welcomes you to Metrc LLC – Metrc (Marijuana Enforcement Tracking Reporting & Compliance). Nevada has selected Metrc as the state inventory tracking and compliance system for marijuana establishments. Effective November 1, 2017, all medical and adult-use marijuana establishments in Nevada must report their establishment data to the state of Nevada via Metrc. This includes cultivators, product manufacturers, testing labs, distributors, and dispensaries/retail stores.
This site is intended to give establishments information that will help them use Metrc to remain in compliance with Nevada’s tracking and reporting requirements. More information may be added to this page during and beyond Nevada’s transition to Metrc.
For information on Nevada’s marijuana program – including regulatory requirements – visit the Nevada Cannabis Compliance Board website at www.ccb.nv.gov.
Metrc is providing live, in-person training classes and web based training classes for licensed industry participants and businesses. To sign-up for one of these workshops, please click "Schedule Training Now" on the right.
