New Cannabis product legalization!

New Cannabis product legalization!

On October 17, 2019, the production and sale of edible cannabis, cannabis extracts, and cannabis topicals will be legal in Canada under the Cannabis Act, by:

  • provincial and territorial retailers
  • federally licensed sellers of cannabis for medical purposes

It will take time before the new cannabis products become available for purchase. Adults should only expect a limited selection to appear gradually, in physical or online stores, and no earlier than mid-December 2019. It will take more time before a full range of products becomes available.

These products will be subject to strict regulations, to address their unique public health and safety risks.

The Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation recommended that the Government of Canada permit the legal sale of these products once regulatory controls were in place. Giving adults legal access to a broader range of cannabis products will help to achieve the Government's objectives of:

  • displacing the illegal market
  • keeping profits out of the hands of criminals and organized crime
