NEW PRODUCTS LEGAL BUT NOT AVAILABLE

As of this October 17, extracts (and vape pens), ingestibles, and topicals are now legal for licensed parties to produce and sell—once they get Health Canada approval on new products. That’ll take some time–minimum 60 days.

Edibles are experiencing an uptick in interest as a result of the US vaping-illness (VAPI) crisis. A new Ipsos poll found 63% of Canadian cannabis users are concerned about the safety of vaping, while 73% say they’re likelier to use ingestibles instead of vaping.

Edible and beverage products will likely come to market later, and they will be limited to a maximum of 10mg THC per package. There will be no stronger-dose edible products for MED patients.
