Oregon would limit serving sizes of marijuana-infused candies, drinks and other foods in the medical and recreational markets under a set of temporary draft rules released this week.
Marijuana-infused edibles, which include a dizzying range of foods, sweets and drinks, would be capped at 5 milligram of THC per serving in the recreational market. A package of edibles could have no more than 50 milligrams of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive property of marijuana that gives consumers a high.
A chocolate bar, for instance, could have 5 milligram servings and the whole bar could have no more than 50 milligrams of THC.
The draft rules also set serving sizes for edibles produced for medical marijuana patients. Those products currently face no limits on potency or serving sizes.
Under the rules, a cannabis-infused edibles produced for the medical market would have no more than 5 milligrams of THC per serving for a maximum of 100 milligrams for the whole product. [Read more at the Portland Oregonian]
