Legalizing Cannabis in both the US and Canada has created plenty of business opportunities, particularly in events. However, there are still some issues you must consider before deciding to incorporate them into any events.
One of the popular cannabis products is CBD oils. There’s even evidence to suggest that the popularity of CBD oil in Canada is due to its health benefits, such as easing anxiety and insomnia.
However, Cannabis is still highly regulated in both Canada and the US. Nevertheless, CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol are becoming accepted in events.
If you plan to bring Cannabis products during events, you should know the following first.
Where Is Cannabis legal?
As of 2020, only four countries in the world have legalized the use of Cannabis. The four countries are Uruguay, Canada, Georgia, and Canada. Keep in mind that it’s not legal in all these countries.
Event organizers are often advised to hold their activities in areas where cannabis use is legal. However, the laws about Cannabis can be tricky to navigate, significantly if it differs between regions.
How much Cannabis is allowed?
In areas where Cannabis is legal, there are still limitations on how much cannabis one should use. In Canada, for example, thirty grams of Cannabis is required. However, the restrictions vary from one state to another in the US, though it is usually not higher than Canada’s.
If you plan to distribute cannabis products during events, you should first know the CBD or THC limit.
When wrong cannabis amounts are given to event attendees, the organizers will be fined and, in extreme cases, arrested.
Are THC and CBD similar or different under laws?
One of the main differences between THC and CBD is that THC is intoxicating while CBD is not. CBD purchasing is legal in the US, but it should not contain more than 0.3% THC.
In Canada, however, THC and CBD are under the same regulatory laws. Therefore, when planning an event, organizers need to know some of the regulations that govern the supply and distribution of Cannabis to avoid trouble from the authorities.
What should event planners know?
Event organizers need to know that cannabis products can be highly intoxicating to people attending. Due to this factor, they should ensure that their attendees are not so intoxicated that they cannot go home independently.
Event organizers need to hire professionals who know how to give the right Cannabis to the event attendees. In addition, event organizers should also be at the forefront of understanding the people’s credentials attending the party.
Though cannabis use has come in various forms, it is crucial for people who organize an event to know the laws, supply, and distribution of cannabis products during any event. Event organizers must know how to go about it. That last thing you’d want is a lawsuit from one of the attendees.
