On Friday, Health Canada released its proposed regulations for cannabis edibles, concentrates, beverages and topicals.
The new products will technically be open for sale as of Oct. 17, 2019, however, Health Canada must be notified 60-days before any product can actually be sold.
The regulations for edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals are now final. We are one step closer to the legalization and strict regulation of these new #cannabis products. #CDNCannabisReg https://t.co/Q8oGuZBG58 pic.twitter.com/KbrHwLaoiu— GovCanHealth (@GovCanHealth) June 14, 2019
Given the 60 day rule, edibles, concentrates and other products will not be on shelves until mid-December.
Furthermore, different regulations have been set for each product.
To minimize risks, new or inexperienced #cannabis consumers should look for edible cannabis products containing 2.5 mg of THC or less. It can take up to 4 hours to feel the full effects, but you can still be impaired. #CDNCannabisReg https://t.co/jBsVTDmXyZ pic.twitter.com/pHuxWhh32C— GovCanHealth (@GovCanHealth) June 14, 2019
(3/3) The department will inspect 1,000 #vaping specialty stores and 2,000 convenience stores in 2019, and monitor online sales and promotions to verify industry compliance with the prohibitions on the sale and promotion of #vaping products. https://t.co/Frzgc2Ggz4— GovCanHealth (@GovCanHealth) June 14, 2019
