The federal government announced Wednesday new regulations in support of the newly adopted Cannabis Act, outlining the rules for the legal production, distribution, sale, importation and exportation of cannabis.

The Cannabis Regulations and the new Industrial Hemp Regulations also set standards for cannabis products that will be available for legal sale once the law comes into force later this fall.

The regulations include strict specifications for the plain packaging and labelling and analytical testing of all cannabis products as well as stringent physical and personnel security requirements for all federally licensed production sites, according to Health Canada.

They outline details on the licences for cultivation and processing of cannabis, including micro-size licences, industrial hemp, research and analytical testing. The regulations also maintain a distinct system for access to cannabis for medical purposes, said Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor.
