Oregon next month will expand the numbers of cannabis-based products that are available to consumers, according to a recently-published bulletin from the Oregon Health Authority.
On June 2, consumers 21 and older will be able to purchase non-psychoactive topical products, cannabis-infused edibles, and cannabis extracts. Specifically, according to the bulletin, the products sold may include:
- Sale of one low-dose cannabinoid edible to a retail customer per day. A low-dose cannabinoid edible means an edible that has no more than 15 mg of THC.
- Sales of non-psychoactive medical cannabinoid topicals which contains not more than 6% of THC.
- Sale of one pre-filled receptacle of an extract to a retail customer per day that does not contain more than 1,000 milligrams of THC.
A number of regulations accompany the increased expansion, including a limitation on dispensaries to sell no more than one quarter ounce of dried cannabis leaves to consumers in a given day, as well as a ban on free samples
The expansion of available products was approved by the state Legislature earlier this year. The state first legalized recreational cannabis in the summer of 2015. By one tally, there are currently over 300 locations in the state where adults may purchase medical cannabis.
