Summary

The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC) has reversed a controversial policy change that affected the inclusion of cannabinoids CBN (cannabinol) and THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) totals. The agency specifically asked whether limits on delta-9-THC in cannabis products should apply to all intoxicating cannabinoids present in the product.

These lapses in communication can lead to significant disruptions in the cannabis industry, impacting both businesses and consumers alike. With more explicit guidance and a collaborative approach, Canada’s cannabis industry can continue to mature and thrive, providing consumers with safe, high-quality products and fulfilling the potential of the country’s recreational market.
