Mitigating potential public health problems associated with edible cannabis products through adequate regulation: A landscape analysis.
An edible cannabis product (ECP) manufactured with food ingredients is subject to the same types of contamination as any conventional food product. Physical, microbial, and chemical hazards are a potential threat to anyone consuming cannabinoid-containing products by mouth. Preventing the unintentional ingestion of ECPs is also a concern for public health professionals. An analysis of the regulatory landscape in the United States (US) was conducted to identify best practices specific to ECPs and to pinpoint preventative safety measures that had not been extensively implemented. Widespread adoption of some of the more useful precedents set by US jurisdictions, as examined in this work, could be of great value in protecting public health.
