OR market for edibles, infused products opens

Thursday is a big day for the cannabis industry in Oregon, where medical marijuana dispensaries for the first time can now sell edibles and other THC-infused products legally to anyone 21 years of age or older.

According to Oregon’s new medical marijuana provisions, each infused product’s package can contain up to 15 milligrams of THC; but customers will not be allowed to buy more than one package at a time, The Oregonian reported.

Regulators eventually will limit the amount of THC that an individual product can have to five milligrams – half of what’s allowed in Colorado and Washington – while an edibles package will be allowed to contain up to 50 milligrams of THC.

Last week, a coalition of edibles manufacturers in Oregon, concerned with a lack of general public knowledge on the potency of their products, launched a public safety campaign to urge first-time users to take it easy on the dosage when trying such products.
