Colorado Edible Manufacturers Face New Regulations

The state of Colorado has been enjoying recreational cannabis from the flowers to the food, but the Marijuana Enforcement Division wants to make sure things don’t get carried away  particularly when it comes to children and young adults under the legal cannabis consumption age of 21.

According to reports from the Denver Post, emergency measures have been put into place to make sure that edibles are strictly regulated to ensure the safety of the general public. Manufacturers must comply with new rules regarding maximum potency, serving size and packaging standards that easily display each item’s contents.

Dispensaries, while still operating within a 100 milligram limitation on recreational edibles, must ensure the products can be broken into portions that are 10 milligrams or less.

All edibles will also have to be packaged in child-resistant containers by the manufacturers before they are shipped to retail locations. Officials hope the new regulations will help with issues of overconsumption in new or unprepared cannabis consumers as well as prevent children from having access to edibles. The new rules will go into effect on Nov. 1.

What do you think about these new regulations? Tell us your thoughts below.

    Where can I buy this cannabis syrup you have in the picture.

    I live in Florida, and by the way, in a census taken by the University of Florida at Gainsville 91% of Floridians will vote for the legalization of “recreational” mariguana in a referendum.

    this may be ok for the recreational aspect but this should not apply to medical use,for people that need a higher milligram dose to help with pain anxiety or whatever your health problem is.

      EXACTLY. let us choose how much we get recreationally, although making edibles come in proportions ain’t a bad idea either for newbies like me who Absolutely live for weed and will eat it all aha.

    As long as one brownie is still 100 milligrams of THC, I couldn’t care less how they split it up in the package. I buy a couple brownies a week here in Colorado. I can consume all 100 milligrams no problem. Marijuana isn’t alcohol. Marijuana isn’t alcohol Marijuana isn’t alcohol…..Get it right.

    I think it should be regulated for adults 21 and older unless a child has a prescription for it!
