Canada currently doesn’t have cannabis extracts, edibles, or tinctures available at their recreational cannabis stores. At the end of December, the Canadian government made public a series of proposed regulations for these forms of cannabis. These regulations will take effect in October.
Like Washington, the maximum THC-content of each package is going to be 10 mg. What a waste of packaging. This means you can have a single 10 mg brownie or five 2 mg cough drops. Extracts will be able to have 10 mg of THC per unit. Under these regulations, refrigeration won’t be necessary for any edible.
There will be a limit to the weight of edibles that someone can possess—30 grams of cannabis-infused edibles will be the limit in Canada. Sugar cannot be added to the edibles, only if it’s part of the flavoring agent. The sugar must naturally occur as part of whatever is flavoring the edible. The same rule applies to ingredients like caffeine.
Canada’s extracts, edibles, and topicals will have to be sold in child-proof containers. Included in the standard label identifying the strain, THC content edibles will also need to provide the nutritional information and ingredients.
