Edibles Canada – Are Canadians Still Curious About Edibles?
A new report from Dalhousie University’s Agri-Food Analytics Lab has found that Canadian consumers are no longer as curious about edibles as they were when the category first launched. In fact, 25 percent of cannabis consumers prefer edibles today — down from 36 percent in 2019.
Why does weed lose its smell?
What happened? One reason is that the edibles canada | GreenSociety and drinks categories haven’t taken off the way they have in other legal markets. This may have to do with the 10 mg maximum per package that’s currently allowed for this product type in Canada, compared to much higher potencies and multiple servings in some US edible products.
The gummy category is continuing to grow, which is to be expected as this is what many consumers want when it comes to edibles. They love the discretion, precise dosing and fun flavours that these types of products offer. They’re also a great way for consumers to experience the benefits of CBD, the non-psychoactive component of cannabis that can be used for its stress-relieving properties and pain relief.
However, some manufacturers have been hit with Health Canada orders to cease production of products that exceed the 10 mg limit. For example, Vortex was forced to stop making its Full Spectrum THC Jelly Cubes because they weren’t compliant with regulations. Likewise, Organigram is seeking a judicial review after Health Canada ordered the company to stop selling its Jolts lozenges because they exceeded the 10 mg limit.
