Registered patients who want to buy gummies and chews should make an appointment with their Medical Cannabis Dispensary pharmacist for a consultation so they are pre-approved to purchase gummies and chews. Check with your Medical Cannabis Dispensary on times and dates open for consultations.

Consultations are required when a patient changes the type of medical cannabis they receive.

All gummies and chews will be produced in single-serving sizes and not exceed 10 mg per serving and 100 mg per package. Ratios of cannabidiol (CBD) to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in the products will vary.

To minimize its appeal to children, a medical cannabis gummy or chew must not bear the likeness or contain cartoon-like characteristics of a real or fictional person, animal, or fruit. Like all medical cannabis products, packaging for gummies and chews must be tamper-evident and child-resistant.

Medical cannabis edibles have to be digested before cannabinoids can reach the bloodstream, which delays the effects. Once the effects of edibles set in, they are usually much stronger and last longer than other forms of medical cannabis.

Because edibles are slower to take effect, some patients may think they need to consume more than recommended. Patients should give it time and follow dosing recommendations from their pharmacist.

Just like all medicine, medical cannabis gummies and chews should be kept in a secure location, out of the reach of children and pets.
