I am very happy to hear that you guys are willing to tackle this objective.
My biggest advice is this, move forward slowly and cautiously. I say that because regulationtions have moved around so much it can be hard to find a direct answer. Make sure to do your research and ensure you eliminate any loopholes that Health Canada can find, because they will try. Having a preapproval from them before moving to market with your products would be a great strategy. To me as a potential customer, that will attract my attention before anything else.
That being said, I do know a couple of things from my own research while developing our strategy and brand.
First, concentrates of all kinds will be allowed to be produced by those who hold the correct license, as long as they test free of solvents. We are seeing the market going away from BHO style extractions and going towards…haha, i aint going to tell you just yet. At least not here, DM me and I will talk to you privately and I can talk to you about trends in a way to help your market penetration.
As for labeling, that is extremely re:trictive. Things like being opaque, health warnings, a THC “stop sign” bigger than the company logo, and many other restrictions are all applicable. Here is the example Health Canada has released.
That being said, we are finding that difficult to scale down to things such as pre-rolls and concentrate vessels. There is just so much information that is required, how are we supposed to scale that down and still include everything, while still trying to stand out from a branding perspective.
To touch on your questions directed at pre-rolls, in my personal research, never have I seen any topic in the language included in Bill C-45 or the ACMPR that directly related to restricting pre-rolls. I cannot recall any memory in my 3 readings any mention on paper materials, size restrictions, or the process in which they are manufactured. The only restrictions that would impact prerolls directly would be the requirements on the vessel, and retail purchase limit on the consumer. A limit of 30 grams per transaction.
That is all that I can think of from the top of my head. If you have any specific questions send me a DM and I will be more than happy to help any way I can. I am no expert by any means, but I have been researching it for some time now and at least could help point you in the right direction.
