Canadian Residents Advocate for Increased THC Levels in Cannabis-Infused Edibles

A public plea within Canada’s Parliamentary House is proposing an increase in the maximum THC level in edible cannabis goods from 10 milligrams to 100 milligrams. Supporters of this move believe it will enhance consumer experience and foster a more resilient industry overall. The plea points out that both the Canada Competition Bureau and the government-operated Ontario Cannabis Store have urged Health Canada to elevate THC thresholds.

The plea posits that the existing 10 milligram THC cap, while suitable for those new to cannabis, does not effectively cater to regular users. The current restrictions hinder legal entities from effectively competing with the underground market. Moreover, the low-dosage, often single-use, products are leading to a surge in single-use plastic waste, which contradicts Canada’s strategy to mitigate pollution and curb plastic waste. The public request was launched on November 8, and as of Wednesday morning, it had witnessed a significant number of endorsements. The opportunity to sign this plea will remain open until March 7, 2024.
