One of the most notable recent updates to the Cannabis Regulations was on October 17th, 2019, when the legal sale of cannabis products belonging to the edible cannabis, cannabis extracts, and cannabis topical classes became authorized under the Cannabis Act. At the same time, the Regulations amending the Cannabis Regulations (New Classes of Cannabis) came into force to address the public health and public safety risks of these new classes of cannabis. The amendments to the Cannabis Regulations included new packaging and labelling requirements, and microbial and chemical contaminants limits, which took effect immediately for products belonging to these new classes. As of October 17, 2020, cannabis oil is no longer a separate product class under Schedule 4 of the Cannabis Act. Oil products have been reclassified either as cannabis extracts, edibles, or topical products, depending on the intended use. Oil has therefore been removed from Schedule 4.
