About the Program

The County of Mendocino has selected SICPA to provide the CalOrigin system to support the new Cannabis program. This system will be used by organizations permitted by the County to operate a cannabis business which cultivates, manufactures, distributes, tests, delivers, transports, and/or dispenses medical cannabis in the unincorporated areas of the County.


The SICPA team will launch the CalOrigin system to track the plant-to-sale inventory of the permittees. The CalOrigin system was used successfully for the pilot programs in Humboldt and Yolo Counties and is now being used to extend the pilot user base in Yolo. SICPA is partnered with Form 10 Group, who will be providing training and user support services for the system.

Next Steps

Mendocino County Officials will provide SIPCA with contact information of approved permittees.  Permittees will be contacted by the SICPA team to setup user accounts and register users in the system.  After permittees have access to the system they will be able to pay account fees and schedule training. Once training is complete permittees will have full system access and the ability to order stamps for tagging products directly from CalOrigin.

Frequently Asked Questions

On June 14 and 15, 2017, the County hosted a Track and Trace Informational Workshop with SICPA. During the workshops the County received a high volume of questions from interested parties. The County has condensed those questions into a Mendocino County Track and Trace Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ).  The FAQs cover topics such as: fees, enrollment, training, product declaration, plant tagging, product tagging and transporting product.  If you have additional questions, please contact the cannabis hotline at 1-844-421-9333 or  

Mendocino County Track & Trace Frequently Asked Questions

Metrc Integration

We are pleased to announce that the Mendocino Track and Trace system, CalOrigin, has received certification by Metrc to interface with the State Track and Trace program through the API services. CalOrigin will seamlessly integrate to the degree possible through the APIs offered by the state to minimize duplicative data entry for our operators that choose to have a single interface for local and state compliance. To support the state system requirements, there will be a number of new data elements required that include state license numbers, Metrc credentials and weights by plant. We will be working over the coming weeks to prepare the instructions for users so that you can be understand the how to connect your CalOrigin account with Metrc and what additional data you will be required to enter for compliance with the State system. We are planning for this functionality to be operational in June to adapt to the requirement for entry into the State system by July 1, 2018.
