Colorado’s State Attorney General Cynthia Coffman gave the legal go-ahead to clear the path for new regulations concerning edibles to take effect over the coming year. One of the more interesting changes will give edible cannabis products a makeover.
The state Marijuana Enforcement Division created a diamond-shaped symbol containing the letters “THC” and an exclamation point, the label is to be printed on or stamped onto most edible products, such as chocolates, hard candy, pills and lozenges.
Products that can’t be stamped, such as drinks, must contain no more than 10 mg of THC (considered a single serving by Colorado) per package—a change that will ban some of the more potent drinks currently on the recreational market.
Manufacturers will have until October 2016 to make the change.
One of the other changes that takes place on Jan. 1, 2016, limits the amount of edibles that you can buy in a single transaction. For Colorado residents, the state settled on a maximum of 80 servings of edibles and 20 servings for those with out-of-state ID cards.
