Canada is set to legalize the sale of cannabis-infused edibles by October 17, 2019, but not all varieties of infused foods will be available as the current regulations would still prohibit stores from selling certain types of edibles.
Here are 10 edibles you still won't be able to buy next October.
15-13. Ice Cream, Popsicles and Cheesecake
The new regs stipulate that all cannabis edibles must be shelf stable. That means dispensaries can't sell anything that has to be frozen or refrigerated. So ice cream, popsicles and cheesecake are all off the table since they can't be stored at room temperature.
12-9. Beef, Pork, Poultry and Fish
The Canadian government is also prohibiting infused meat (except for dried varieties like beef jerky). So that means you won't be able to buy infused wings for a cannabis tailgate party, or THC-glazed ribs for a cannabis BBQ or even a weed turkey for Danksgiving.
8-6. Coffee, Coca Cola and Red Bull
The feds say edibles can't contain more than 30 mg of caffeine. That means you won't be able to buy cannabis-infused coffee, cola, energy drinks or even most teas as they all contain more than 30 mg of caffeine. So if Coca Cola or Red Bull want to get into Canada's cannabis energy, they'll have to start making low-caffeine drinks while Starbucks will have to infuse their decaf coffees.
5-1. Elvis Cookies, G-Bars and other high-powered edibles
Each individual edible, whether it be a gummy bear or a pot brownie, can't contain more than 10 mg of THC in Canada. That means a slew of high-powered edibles won't be available for sale. We're talking about weed-heavy treats like the Elvis Cookie, the Korova's Black Bar, Kaneh's Best-of-Both Worlds Brownies and LOL Edibles' G-Bar are all dealbreakers because each one contains a whopping 1,000 mg of THC. That's one hundred times over the limit in Canada.
But those infused snacks are lightweights compared to LOL Edibles' XL Rice Krispy, which packs a serious punch with its 1,800 mg of THC. So you'd probably have a better chance of spotting Sasquatch than this rice krispy square at a dispensary.
