The Canadian government has released rules regarding the packaging and branding of recreational cannabis products throughout the country. This news comes months away from the proposed legalization of cannabis country wide.

Regulations are made stringent in an attempt to keep cannabis products away from youth. Some regulations include the standardization of the type of color manufacturers can use on your packaging and restricts the way that they can brand their products. The Canadian government will also require a mandatory warning label.

Most importantly, a universal symbol will be implemented which will warn consumers that their is THC within said product.

“What we’ve heard from Canadians is clear: these regulations must protect the health and safety of Canadians, particularly our youth, while at the same time enabling a diverse, competitive and legal industry comprising both large and small players that can displace the existing illicit market for cannabis. Its very important for us to ensure the safety features are there in place,” Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor told reporters Monday. “We want to make sure that it’s child-proof and that it’s tamper-evident.”
