TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Effective immediately, the Florida’s medical marijuana industry can now begin to sell edible products.

On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Health's Office of Medical Marijuana Use published the new rules that grant dispensaries the ability to produce and sell THC-infused edible products to include lozenges, baked goods, gelatin, chocolates or drink powders.

The rules state that dispensaries cannot make edibles that resemble commercially available candy, have icing or sprinkles on them or have bright colors to avoid attracting children to the products.

A single serving portion of an edible is not allowed exceed 10 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol.

Each dispensary must get approval from the state for each edible product before it is allowed to go on the market.

Trulieve has already announced their intention to get their product out on the market, saying that once its products are approved by the DOH, they will be releasing an assortment of edible products.
