CANNANNEW REPORT

Starting April 1, 2022, Oregon edible concentration limits increase from 50 mg THC to 100 mg per package. Buried in these rules is a new requirement that edibles packaged with more than 55 mg THC be “scored,” meaning permanently, physically marked to indicate single-serving portions. ORS 845-026-0210 states that cannabinoid edibles that are solid and exceed 55 mg THC in the container must be scored. Serving diagrams alone (visual examples on the label of how to portion) will no longer be allowed for edibles that exceed 55 mg. Only two exceptions exist.

The second exception is for products packaged below the 55 mg threshold. These products don’t need to be scored, as long as they are sold and packaged with a measuring device that measures single servings or placed in packaging that clearly enables a consumer to determine when a single serving has been consumed. According to 845-026-0100(45), scoring means to permanently, physically demark a cannabinoid edible in a way that enables a reasonable person to: 1) intuitively determine how much of the product constitutes a single serving, and 2) easily physically separate the edible into single servings either by hand or with a common utensil, such as a knife.
