Edibles In Colorado Will Have Thc Branding To Avoid Confusion

Cannabis product are becoming so integrated with other products in stores, one has to wonder how they will separate THC edibles from normal treats. Well, next time you are wondering if a brownie contains pot, Colorado state has you covered.

A state requirement that edible cannabis products come with a diamond-shaped stamp and the letters THC takes effect Saturday, October 8, 2016. Everything from coffee to candy bars will be wrapped in new packaging to indicate that the products contain cannabis, just like the product, Jungle Roast Coffee, in the photo below (see bottom of packaging).

A new Colorado requirement, which goes into effect this Saturday, makes edible producers to label their goods with a diamond-shaped stamp and the letters T-H-C to distinguish the treats from their non-intoxicating counterparts.

The rule applies to the edibles themselves, not just the packaging, and was approved after complaints that the treats look too much their non-intoxicating counterparts. It’s the first such requirement in any legal cannabis capital


The stamping requirement comes in addition to labeling and packaging requirements that include childproof zippers and lids, along with warnings that the product should be kept away from children and not eaten before driving or while pregnant or nursing.

Starting next year, Colorado also will ban any edible cannabis products in the shape of a fruit, animal or human. Officials say the shapes could attract kids.
