New Colorado Rules Set For Marijuana Edibles Packaging, Serving Sizes

In the new rules, the state has officially set the serving size of active THC in each edible marijuana item at 10 milligrams, and the maximum serving size of an individual edible marijuana product at 100 milligrams.

COLORADO:  Amid cries for tighter regulations on marijuana edibles after a rash of recent incidents, the Colorado Department of Revenue has posted new specific rules for the state’s legal marijuana industry that will go into effect in February 2015.

In these new rules, the state has officially set the serving size of active THC in each edible marijuana item at 10 milligrams, and has also set the maximum serving size of an individual edible marijuana product at 100 milligrams of THC.

In addition, “the amount in milligrams of Standardized Serving Of Marijuana, the total number of Standardized Servings Of Marijuana and the total amount of active THC contained within the product” must be clearly spelled out on each edible marijuana product “in a way that enables a reasonable person to intuitively determine how much of the product constitutes a single serving of active THC,” the new rules state.

If a marijuana edible product is too small to contain all this information, then “the product must contain no more than 10 mg of active THC per unit of sale,” the department wrote.
