5 mg of THC may be ideal potency for cannabis-infused edibles, Organigram-backed survey finds
How much is the ideal dosage for cannabis-infused products? It appears that 5 milligrams might do the trick, according to a survey funded by Canadian cannabis producer Organigram Holdings. The survey, which polled 2,001 Canadians, found that the ideal potency of edible products tends to be low, and that more than half of current cannabis consumers will pick edibles over alcohol “some of the time”, now that the product is legally available.
Health Canada official touts how legalization curbed illicit market in UN speech
Canada’s submission to the United Nations’ Commission on Narcotic Drugs hailed how the legalizing cannabis resulted in a stark reduction of the illicit market, but stopped short of advocating other countries pursue the same legalization blueprint the country used. Marijuana Moment reports that Michelle Boudreau, director general for Health Canada’s controlled substances department, told U.N. officials that “rates of cannabis use have not changed among youth and young adults” after legalization, despite a 30 per cent reduction in the illicit market. Boudreau’s comments come after the Commission pushed back plans to reschedule cannabis’ drug classification to December.
