Cannabis Edibles

On October 17, 2019, new Cannabis Regulations will come into force, legalizing and regulating the sale of cannabis products including: edibles, extracts, and topicals.

Things to Consider about Ingesting Cannabis

If you choose to ingest cannabis, Health Canada recommends considering the following factors:

  • Several factors (sex, age, experience, frequency, THC/CBD levels, food, drink, etc.) can affect your response to cannabis
  • When ingesting cannabis, it takes much longer for the effects to be felt
  • Effects can last 12 hours with some residual effect lasting 24 hours after use.
  • Choose products with a low amount of THC and equal or higher amount of CBD
  • Users should start low and go slow to minimize health risk

Any act that causes a person to consume cannabis without their consent is prohibited by the Student Code of Conduct.
