Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The current limit of 10mg THC serves as a suitable starting point for newcomers, however fails to adequately cater to existing consumers;
  • The legal, regulated cannabis industry is unable to compete against the illicit market; and
  • THC limits are contributing to an entirely new stream of single-use plastics, contrary to this country’s plan to address pollution and prevent plastic waste.
We, the undersigned, citizens of canada, call upon the Government of Canada to increase the maximum THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) allowed in edible cannabis products to 100mg.
We believe that increasing the THC limit will address the above concerns, will benefit consumers and will contribute to a more sustainable industry as a whole.
Both the Canada Competition Bureau and the Ontario Cannabis Store have called upon Health Canada to increase THC limits. The Competition Bureau has stated that "restricting THC levels may not be necessary to achieve the government's objectives", while the Ontario Cannabis Store has emphasized the need to "revisit the current THC limits". These endorsements from reputable organizations highlight the importance of reconsidering the current restrictions.
Therefore, we respectfully request that the Government of Canada urge Health Canada to increase the THC mg allowed in edible cannabis products to 100mg.
