Where to Find THC-Infused Edibles and the Canadian Laws Regulating Their Sale and Consumption.
Canadian regulations put in place under the Cannabis Act as well as by Health Canada limit how cannabis-infused edibles can be sold in-store across the country. The main important regulation of THC-infused edibles is the limit of 10mg of THC for a package of edible products, done so in part for the purpose of the gradual effect edibles have on the mind in comparison to the immediate effects of smoking.
Other important rules set out by Health Canada include:
- The restriction on ingredients allowed to be included in edibles, especially sugars that can make them appealing to children and underage Canadians;
- Plain and child-resistant packaging to prevent accidental consumption;
- Restrictions on claiming nutritional value; and
- Increasing the standards in which edibles can be manufactured in order to prevent food-borne illnesses, etc.
Where to get cannabis-infused edibles.
Cannabis-infused edibles are slowly becoming available within legal pot stores across Canada. Brick and mortar storefronts must first claim the intent to sell edibles to Health Canada, which pursuantly places a 60 day waiting period. Edibles are not currently not yet available online in Ontario.
Currently, First Nations dispensaries are some of the only locations that are legally selling THC-infused edibles.
Purchasing cannabis, including THC-infused edibles from First Nations dispensaries over private provincial stores, such as the Ontario Cannabis Store.
First Nations are the relevant, sovereign authority on their own lands. Thusly, cannabis laws put in place by the Federal government do not affect the self-regulated First Nation communities. Most Canadians already know this to some scope, especially in regard to the previously spoken ability to purchase cannabis products, including edibles, from First Nation dispensaries even before the Cannabis Act came into effect.
It’s important, however, to recognize that purchasing cannabis products from First Nation communities is legal.
Here’s why it’s worth the trip to communities such as Alderville for your cannabis-infused edibles:
- Regulations for the sale of edibles across Canada are currently limiting the amount of THC allowed in an edible product to 10mg. To the seasoned THC user, this amount will seem low and requires the purchase of more products to get the same high as one 30 mg edible. There is no limit imposed on First Nation THC-infused edibles, which means you can purchase products that correlate with your own boundaries.
- Canadian manufacturers will require some trial and error when it comes to developing recipes with the correct amount of THC that still tastes good. There is no learning curve for First Nations communities when selling edibles.
