Connecticut Raises Cannabis Purchase Limits Starting in December

Starting next month, Connecticut will raise the purchase limit for adult-use cannabis products from seven grams to 14 grams per transaction.

Full story after the jump.

Starting next month, the maximum purchase limit for adult-use cannabis products in Connecticut will increase from seven grams to 14 grams per transaction. In a statement, Bryan Cafferelli, the commissioner for the Department of Consumer Protection, said the change comes after officials “reviewed the available supply and demand since before the launch of the market” and now feel it’s “appropriate” to increase the limits.   

“As more retailers, production companies and other supply chain licensees have come online, the capacity of the industry has increased. We are confident this measured approach to adult-use sales has resulted in a healthy market for businesses, and a safe and fair marketplace for adult-use cannabis consumers and medical marijuana patients.” — Cafferelli in a press release 

The program changes come as the state continues to set monthly cannabis sales records – which, combined, surpassed $25 million in September. Product prices were also their lowest since the launch of the adult-use market, with medical cannabis prices averaging $38.21 and adult-use prices averaging $38.37 in September. 

The new rules also increase the amount of vape cartridges allowed per purchase from four to eight, of either the .5 milliliter or 1 milliliter. The agency notes that purchases can include different product types that “collectively contain no more than” a half of an ounce of cannabis.
