Regulators propose new warnings for cannabis products

California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has proposed new rules on warning labels for cannabis products sold in California. The proposed change would have cancer warnings combined with warnings about developmental toxicity during pregnancy.

The exact language would be dependent on the type of product. For edibles, the warning label would specifically state that consumption of the product during pregnancy exposes the child to delta-9-THC which can affect behavior and learning abilities.

OEHHA is accepting comments on the proposed regulations through May 18, 2021. Public hearings will follow.
