US (AK): THC levels in edibles can now double in Alaska. What does that mean?

Starting Sept. 1, cannabis retailers and manufacturers can sell edible products with 10 milligrams of THC per serving. That’s double the 5mg limit that has been on the books since Alaska’s legal cannabis industry opened its doors to retail customers in 2016.

While that might sound like a large, potent step up in an evolving retail category that includes everything from cookies to gummy candies to ice cream and fruit sodas, it brings Alaska’s relatively conservative regulations in line with what other states have adopted.

“I don’t consider this a substantive change,” said Marijuana Control Board Chair Nicholas Miller during the body’s June meeting, where the regulation was changed.

Miller pointed out that Alaska’s regulatory approach to dosage standards as the industry matured has been “low and slow.”
