The Federal Government amended the Cannabis Act and enacted new regulations to permit the sale of cannabis edibles in Canada, i.e. food or drink items made with cannabis oil.
As of today a host of edible cannabis products are available for legal sale to consumers in Ontario. Cannabis edibles are allowed to have up to 10 milligrams of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in a single package and up to 30 milligrams of caffeine, if it is naturally occurring (for example, in chocolate, coffee and tea). However, edible cannabis products may not contain nicotine or added alcohol. The Government has published the following guidelines outlining what industry needs to know about cannabis. See link here.
There are strict limitations on how cannabis products may be packaged and labelled, as well as how they may be promoted. To ensure you do not go off-side, please contact us.
