The Cannabis Act and its Regulations provide a framework for legal access to cannabis and control and regulate its production, distribution and sale. The Regulations outline strict rules for packaging and labelling of Cannabis products referred to as the “core plain packaging” rules. Before you may sell your product, you must obtain an appropriate license. Each class of licenses (Cultivation, Processing, Sales and analytical testing including R&D and Drug) comes with its own requirements such as the requirement for physical barriers and visual monitoring of the perimeter.
The Regulations also prohibit the sale of Cannabis products that are appealing to youth by restricting the type of packaging and labelling.
