Licensed medical marijuana dispensries in Oregon can sell edibles, extracts and topicals under SB 1511.  Edibles are foods that contain marijuana, such as brownies. Extracts are concentrates processed from marijuana and used to make edibles. Extracts also can be smoked or vaporized.

The Oregon Health Authority recently issued temporary rules for early sales of recreational marijuana. Sales began in June. Dispensaries will be allowed to sell a quarter ounce of flower, a single 15 milligram edible, one gram of concentrate, and a 6 percent THC topical to a customer in a given day.

Dispensaries will be able to sell to adults 21 and older:

  • One low-dose cannabinoid edible, containing no more than 15 mg of THC, to a retail customer per day
  • Non-psychoactive medical cannabinoid topicals which contain no more than 6 percent THC
  • One prefilled receptacle of a cannabinoid extract to a retail customer per day that does not contain more than 1,000 mg of THC

There are more than 330 medical dispensaries licensed for recreational sales under the OHA. OLCC will control regulation of the state’s recreational marijuana industry after Jan. 1, 2017. The commission plans to issue its first dispensary licenses in October.

Editors note: Sales of recreational cannabis are restricted to adult customers, 21 and older.
