Marijuana edibles will have much more THC in Alaska

Written by on 18 August, 2021

If you live in Alaska, as of September 1 you will be enjoying much more potent cannabis edibles, as the state’s Marijuana Control Board increased the amount of THC allowed in this type of product.

That’s right, starting next month, marijuana companies that produce edibles will be permitted to infuse their products with higher doses of this psychoactive cannabinoid.

According to the new rules approved, cannabis edibles will contain up to 10 milligrams of THC per serving; previously, the established limit was 5 milligrams.

Likewise, as for the total amount of THC that one of these ingestible products may contain, the amount allowed went from 50 milligrams to 100 milligrams.

It is worth mentioning that the regulation also establishes that these types of articles must be laboratory tested to determine the THC content, establishes a variation of no more than 20% of the labeled potency of a product.

Although this new rule doubles the potency allowed in edibles, Marijuana Control Board Chairman Nicholas Miller noted that the policy change is in harmony with other states that have legalized recreational use of the plant, such as California, Washington, Michigan, and Colorado.

“I don’t consider this a substantial change,” Miller said during the June board meeting when the regulation was changed.
