One year after the legalization of recreational cannabis, Canada is opening the door to edible products based on this drug.
Canada continues to evolve in the marketing of cannabis. After the legalization of recreational cannabis, edible products based on this drug will be authorized by the end of the year. The Canadian government still ensures, as reported BFMTV, that the sale of these products will be strictly framed. Moreover, products especially for children, such as sweets, can not contain cannabis. In addition to edible products, the new regulation also covers cannabis extracts and dermatological products.
"The amended regulations are the next step to reduce the public health and safety risks associated with edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis (for dermatological use, ed) and to supplant the illegal market for these products in Canada. said in a statement Bill Blair, Minister of Border Security and Organized Crime Reduction. The amount of cannabis present in the products will also be monitored. Infused foods and beverages may not contain more than 10 milligrams of THC, the psychoactive substance of the plant. The dose increases to 1,000 milligrams per package for cannabis extracts and dermatological products.
A lucrative market
As for the promotion of these products, producers and distributors are prohibited from highlighting the benefits that cannabis may have on health or for diets. Since last October and the legalization of cannabis, nearly 5.4 million Canadians have already purchased cannabis. According to figures from the federal statistical agency, among them, 600,000 tested to consume for the first time. The market is therefore very lucrative for the various companies that will go the distance of inserting drugs into their food. For its part, France is still thinking about legalizing cannabis for therapeutic use.
