Cannabis Edibles Coming Soon To Ontario

The day most Canadian’s have been waiting for is now within sight. In just over 1 month, you will be able to legally obtain and consume cannabis edibles.

The day cannabis edibles and other cannabis infused products become legal is October 17, 2019. This will be in effect for all provinces within Canada.

OCTOBER 17, 2019 – EDIBLES DAY!

Although the October 17th date is confirmed, I would not expect to see products on the Ontario Cannabis Supply (OCS) website quite quick. From the looks of things the OCS is already having a hard enough time keeping up with dry cannabis.

However, we should not lose all hope. The OCS has been actively signing new supply agreements over the past few months. These supply requests have been published on the OCS website and have requested many new products such as vape pens, TCH and CBD oil extracts, along with baked cannabis goods.

The TCH and brownie infused products will at the earliest be stocked on shelves come December 2019. This is because of a rule that requires 60 days to advise Health Canada of their intent to sell…..even if selling to a Provincial body.

The Canadian cannabis market is growing rapidly. It is expected that the soon to be legal cannabis edibles will be worth big; approximately $1.6 billion annually.

Now we all know the limits of how much dry cannabis one can legally possess, but how about edibles and oil concentrates?

Health Canada has confirmed that the maximum amount of THC in edibles will be 10mg and 1,000mg in concentrates used in vape pens. Further, multi-pack edibles will be limited to 100 mg of THC per packet. Many have already criticized the limits on single serve edibles (10mg) and the multi-packs (100mg) as being too conservative. To the above, these concerns have been made prevalent in many online forums, and surprisingly by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, stating that they would like to see single serve packs of edibles increased from 10mg to 100mg (max) of THC.

In light of the above, it seems that both the Provincial and Federal governments are moving in the right direction with regards to providing alternative types of cannabis products. It may also be due to the fact that the Canadian cannabis industry has become one of the largest in the world and is poised to generate billions of dollars on an annual bases.
