Farewell, High Dosed Edibles Starting July 1st, 2018
Due to new regulations in CA, Edible products will be capped at 100mg
We are sad to announce that after July 1st, 2018 we will no longer be able to carry edible products over 100mg…
According to the new California Cannabis Regulations and Safety Act (SB-94), all edibles products are restricted to a maximum 100mg THC content. Edibles must also be scored clearly into accurately dosed 10mg (or less) servings. Products must also be sealed in child resistant packaging. This is to prevent any possibility of a cannabis “overdose”. These regulations apply to Adult-Use and Medical patients alike.
This means we will be saying goodbye to one our favorite products, the Cocoa Med’s 280 bar. The days are over that you can buy 1,000mg Korova Black bars and. But California edible companies are working hard to comply with these new regulations and modify their products to meet the new 100mg standards.
We have many edible products that have become complaint for purchase such as Valhalla Gummies, Green Hornets, Cheeba Chew Taffy’s, Kiva Chocolates, Plus Gummies, Vive Tabs, Bhang Chocolate, Symmetric’s Soda’s , Venice Cookie Company, and many more! Cocoa med’s will also be adjusting their mg content, but the beloved 280 bar will no longer be carried at Mercy Wellness.
Here at Mercy we strive to bring our medical patients and recreation users the best products available to the market, at the fairest price. We will continue to provide safe access to cannabis products and make sure we have compliant medicine for our customers. Thank you for bearing with us during these changes with the legalization of cannabis in California.
