US (OR): Oregon commission raises THC limits for some hemp products

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission recently raised the limit from 10 milligrams of THC per container to 50 milligrams of THC per container for hemp concentrates, extracts and tinctures.

State cannabis regulators raised the per-container THC limit on hemp concentrates, extracts and tinctures sold within OLCC-licensed marijuana dispensaries.

The new rule from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission allows a hemp concentrate, extract or tincture (extract dissolved in ethanol) to contain up to 50 milligrams total THC per container. Those items previously were limited to no more than 10 milligrams total THC per container.

Though hemp now is legal to grow nationwide and is regulated in Oregon by the agriculture department, OLCC controls what is out of compliance with federal law. Because some locally grown hemp still exceeds federal THC restrictions, it was up to OLCC to change these rules.

"This provides an out for those hemp crops that exceed the federal limit," said Oregon State University Global Hemp Innovation Center Director Jay Noller. "They will have an additional market."
