Vermont cannabis regulators urge lawmakers to lift THC caps
After successfully launching adult-use cannabis sales in 2022 the Vermont Cannabis Control Board is asking the legislature to reconsider potency caps on cannabis concentrates. Vermont law caps THC potency of both cannabis flower at 30% THC and cannabis concentrates at 60% THC. These potency caps have results in a lack of cannabis concentrates in the Vermont adult-use market. In December 2022 regulators released an 82 page draft of a powerpoint presentation that includes an overview about the demand for cannabis concentrates and how the THC caps is having unintended consequences. In their presentation the board recommends eliminating the cap on cannabis concentrates and creating public awareness campaigns to educating the public about safely and responsibly using high-dose products.
