Cannabis retailers will soon be allowed to sell edibles, topicals, and extracts.
The new rules will come into effect on October 17th, one year after marijuana was legalized.
Retailers will have to notify their intent to sell the new forms of marijuana 60 days before they will be allowed to.
Health Canada released its final regulations on the pot products, dictating rules on packaging and on how much T-H-C will be allowed. Marijuana-infused food or drinks will have a cap of 10 milligrams while vaping oils or topicals like lotions are allowed a maximum of one-thousand milligrams.
Bill Blair, the minister responsible for organized crime reduction, says there will be strict guidelines for packaging of edibles and other next-generation cannabis products to make sure they aren’t appealing to kids.
The new products will appear on the shelves in the middle of December.
