On May 4, 2016 the Oregon Health Authority announced rules for early recreational cannabis sales of cannabis extracts, topicals and edibles. The rules defined what products were available for purchase by adults 21 or older beginning June 2, 2016. Those products include:
- One low-dose cannabinoid edible, containing no more than 15 mg of THC, to a retail customer per day
- Non-psychoactive medical cannabinoid topicals which contain no more than 6 percent THC
- One pre-filled receptacle of a cannabinoid extract to a retail customer per day that does not contain more than 1,000 mg of THC
What does this mean, exactly? Let’s start with edibles.
Edibles come in many shapes, sizes, flavors and forms. There are confections, chocolates, baked goods, capsules, beverages, oils such as coconut, peanut, or vegetable oil for cooking and many other options. Just about anything that you can eat can be infused with a cannabis and turned into an edible.
Topicals are lotions, balms, roll-ons, and oils that are applied directly to your skin and having the cannabinoids absorbed through the dermal layer. On the recreational market these will have higher concentrations of CBD (cannabidiol), less than 6 percent THC, and will not be psychoactive.
Finally, we get to extracts. Cannabis extracts include butane hash oil (BHO), propane hash oil (PHO), carbon dioxide (CO2) oil utilizing heat and pressure. Cannabis extractions can also be made using n-butane or hexane. These are popular forms of cannabis consumption for medical patients and has a concentrated amount of THC.
