Cannabis edibles expected on the market in Canada by year's end

Government officials say that like dried flower product legally available for sale through official channels since October 17, edible cannabis products can only come in plain packaging with clear labelling of potency.

The December launch date is calculated by being 60 days after regulations for those products coming into force on October 17.

With just four months to the liberalization of the Canadian recreational cannabis market Deloitte estimates it could eventually be worth around $2.7 billion.

Although cannabis products like flower and oils have been available since the onset of legalization, other products, like edibles, were subject to an additional year of consultation, which ended in February.

The amendments will also limit the amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the substance in cannabis that makes people high, to 10 milligrams per serving in cannabis edibles and extracts.

Canada expects to start sales of cannabis-infused edibles by mid-December, while prohibiting pot products that might appeal to children such as gummy bears or lollipops, the government announced Friday.

Canadian cannabis producers like Tilray Inc., Canopy Growth Corp. and Hexo Corp. have linked up with major USA alcohol giants over the past year to spend millions of dollars to develop beverages that contain ingredients such as THC and cannabidiol (CBD), a relatively new product category, ahead of the launch of those products for sale in Canada.

The determination of whether a product does violate the guideline will be made on a case-by-case basis, the official said. As well, no elements on these products would associate them with alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, or vaping products.

The intent is the "protection of our kids", Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair said on Friday. This amount is significantly lower than what's offered in some medical cannabis products, like chocolate bars, which can regularly have more than 100 mg of THC each.

Although the market is flooded with cannabis beauty products, those now for sale in the legal market in Canada are made with hempseed oil - which does not contain CBD, unlike many of those for sale in the U.S. "And we are very much putting restrictions in place to ensure that does not happen".

It is worth mentioning here that Canada had legalized the use of cannabis by enacting a law past year.

Hill Street Beverage Co.'s chief executive Terry Donnelly had hoped that the final regulations would not require separate manufacturing facilities for cannabis-infused goods, but he was pleased to see the final regulations will now allow for the sale of multi-pack drinks.

Don't expect to be buying any cannabis beer, since combining pot and alcohol in products won't be legal.

Ontario is home to more than half the licensed producers of recreational cannabis in Canada and a majority of employment.
