Mission Statement

From harvest to home the Oregon Cannabis Business Council gets results for Oregon’s legal cannabis industry by working for common sense rules, regulations and laws that create safe access to cannabis.

The Oregon Cannabis Business Council (OCBC) is a member-driven trade association that provides professional assistance to post-cultivation cannabis businesses and representation for the industry in state legislative and regulatory decision making.

The Oregon Cannabis Business Council is Oregon’s most experienced, knowledgeable voice working for common sense rules, regulations and laws that foster industry growth by providing safe access to cannabis.

Our members are committed to ensuring the development of a professional, responsible cannabis marketplace in Oregon. We believe a successful cannabis industry will be one that instills confidence in consumers, government regulators, and the public at large. We support efforts to create transparency, accountability, and consistency in the operations of cannabis businesses.

The future of Oregon’s cannabis industry is being set today, with laws and rules under development that will define how our businesses can operate. We must look out for our interests in this process. Join us today and help decide the future of this industry.
