Jetty Extracts, a San Diego, CA-based producer of cannabis extracts and vapes, announced it is the first company to receive the California Department of Public Health’s OCal certification for its solventless manufacturing process.

OCal is a comparable-to-organic certification for cannabis grown and manufactured in California. It was created as a solution for cannabis products that are not eligible for certification under the USDA Organic program. OCal certification creates stringent standards for cannabis cultivation and manufacturing, from soil to oil, including:

  • Plant material must be cultivated without using most conventional pesticides, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge, bioengineering or ionizing radiation.
  • OCal-certified products must be kept separate from conventional products throughout manufacturing.
  • Only specific types of extraction, including solventless extraction, are eligible for certification.
  • OCal-certified manufactured products must also be made without artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.

“Consumer safety has been a top priority of Jetty since the company’s inception,” said Nate Ferguson, co-founder and chief product officer at Jetty Extracts. “Jetty’s OCal certification is a testament to our consistent efforts to create the cleanest, most sustainable and innovative products on the market and we’re committed to meeting the growing consumer demand for transparent cannabis products.”

Jetty’s OCal-certified solventless products will hit dispensaries across California beginning January 2023. For more information, please visit
