As the legal cannabis markets of Nevada continue unfolding, things happen quickly and regulations are constantly evolving. Edibles are a great example. Effective at the beginning of January 2019, a new set of regulations went into effect regarding edibles. The result? Companies selling infused edibles had to adapt their products, product molds, packaging, and more. If you’re wondering why some of your favorite edibles are no longer available, these regulations are probably the culprit. Here’s what else to know about rules and regulations for cannabis edibles here in Nevada.
In the interest of keeping infused edibles marketed solely to adults and out of the reach of children, the state of Nevada created a comprehensive set of rules and regulations. These affect individual wrappers, different kinds of edibles (think chocolate bars with delineated lines indicating serving sizes, or individual servings for things like gummies), and the approved doses of THC. If your favorite edible is long gone, it may have been too great a feat to comply with the new rules. Again, the idea is to ensure that cannabis edibles are consumed properly by adults 21 years of age and older and away from children, so it’s important that everyone understands and complies.

We’ve been intaking a lot of inquiries here at Mynt about edibles that are just no longer available for purchase. These new regulations may be why. While some companies are still hard at work bringing their products and packaging into compliance, for others, it may not have been possible to completely revamp the processing method, the packaging, or the infused item itself, so the product line was discontinued.
