One year after legalization, cannabis edibles, topicals, and extracts are now legal in Canada. This includes cannabis-infused food and beverages.
Read more about the legislation regarding edibles here.
However, given current federal regulations, the earliest that edibles can arrive on shelves is mid-December 2019, and even then we will only see a limited selection. It is expected selection will start ramping up in the first quarter of 2020.
We will continue to keep members updated on cannabis regulations and related liability concerns. The topic will also be covered at the BC Liquor Conference on Monday, October 21 at the Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver:
- Cannabis and Liquor Liability seminar with Matthew Bujar (Dolden Wallace Folick)
- Closing panel discussion on the impact of cannabis legalization 2.0 on BC’s liquor industry
Online registration for the conference is now closed. If you would like to sign-up please contact Danielle: firstname.lastname@example.org.
