The THC limit for cannabis edibles in Alaska will be 10 milligrams per serving, doubling the current product limit, starting September 1.

Full story after the jump.

Starting September 1, the THC limit in cannabis products in Alaska will be increased to 10 milligrams per serving, doubling the current product limits, the Anchorage Daily News reports. The new rules put the state’s limit in line with that adopted in most other states with adult-use cannabis programs.

The new rules also raise the allowable amount of THC per package to 100 milligrams.

The rules were first approved in June and, at that time, Marijuana Control Board Chair Nicholas Miller said he didn’t consider the change “substantial.”

Tasha Grossl, the owner of cannabis edibles company Lady Gray, told the Daily News in an email that the new limits are “a big win for both the legal industry and the consumers.”

“Depending on the sizes and flavor profiles, some items will be a good fit with minor reformulations while others will take more work to have the desired flavors matching the desired potencies.” Grossl in an email to the Daily News

Grossl added that the change will reduce the price per THC milligram for edibles in Alaska’s legal marketplace.

Alaska voters approved cannabis legalization in the state in 2014. In fiscal year 2020, cannabis-derived taxes reached $24.2 million in Alaska, representing 2.15% of the state’s tax collections, according to state Department of Revenue data.
