Edibles

Manufacturing Cannabis Infused Edibles

Cannabis edible products and concentrates is legal for sale on October 17 2019. A quality assurance person will need to be identified as part of the application process. CanWis has qualified experts with experience in both PCP implementation and personnel training.
Health Canada has so far made it clear that no nicotine, added caffeine (naturally occurring caffeine less then 30mg per package is allowed) or added ethyl alcohol (0.5% w/w as a by-product is allowed) can be combined with cannabis. The use of ethyl alcohol would be permitted in cannabis extracts that are intended to be ingested (such as tinctures).
This license should allow you to sell to another licensed manufacturing facility, research license holder, and provinces for recreational use. There will also be micro-manufacturing and standard-manufacturing for edibles (which includes beverages). The restriction for micro-manufacturing will most likely be leveraged from micro-processing and include a limitation of manufacturing 600Kg of dried cannabis a year into finished products unless you also hold a micro-cultivation license. If a micro-cultivation license is obtained for the same site and the cannabis comes exclusively from that site, this maximum quantity of 600 Kg per year of dried cannabis will not apply.

Preventive Control Plan (PCP) Implementation (aka HACCP)

Health Canada expects a PCP plan as part of the new edible regulations on October 17 2019. The biggest component of the PCP is a hazard analysis. A hazard is a biological, chemical or physical agent that, when not controlled, has the potential to cause illness or injury to a person who consumes it. The hazard analysis will identify all critical control points and associated limits and monitoring techniques that will have to be put in place to prevent or eliminate any potential hazard to an acceptable level. An example of this is Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP). Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) will have to be written for each control point. The PCP also includes complaint and recall SOPs that will be used to investigate and correct and or prevent further occurrences of potential hazards to continually strengthen your PCP. The PCP will include:
