With the Cannabis Act officially taking affect, cannabis products are now legal in Canada. With this shift in cannabis policy will come changes to the cannabis market and the types of products available to adults. Here are just a few things you will see now that cannabis is legal.

1. CBD Will Enter the Cannabis Market

Prior to legalization, cannabidiol or CBD was not widely available to adults in Canada. Previously, CBD products were only legal for registered patients under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). These patients could access CBD with the authorization of licensed healthcare provider and only from a licensed cannabis producer.

Now, under the changes in the Cannabis Act, cannabinoid products, including those containing CBD, are legal for adults to purchase, possess, and use. CBD products can be purchased from licensed retailers and distributors across Canada.

2. Limited Product Types in First Year

The regulations set out in the Cannabis Act limit the types of products available in the first year to cannabis flower and cannabis oils formulated into tinctures, sprays, and capsules. RSHO™ CBD oil products are available as liquids and capsules. Both of these product types take advantage of full-spectrum CBD oil extracts, crafting them into easy to take consumer products.

The Cannabis Act allows for new products to be added to the marketplace in the first year, including cannabis concentrates and vapes, but they aren’t available yet. As the legal cannabis industry continues to mature, Real Scientific® will be ready to introduce new products for our customers. You can learn more about the our products here.

3. Safer Products

As Canada transitions from black market cannabis to a regulated legal market, cannabis products will become safer as testing guidelines are applied to products on the market. Real Scientific® products lead the way by surpassing testing thresholds and thoroughly testing our products up to five times during our manufacturing process, including after harvest, after extraction, after formulation, after manufacturing and packaging, and final batch testing.

These analytical tests look for microbials, contaminants, heavy metals, and foreign materials. They also verify consistent cannabinoid content so that every product from Real Scientific® provides steady, reliable effects.

4. More Commercial Full-Spectrum Products

Full-spectrum, whole plant CBD products capture the full chemical profile of the cannabis plant, including all the plant’s cannabinoid, terpene, and nutrient content. Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) products are formulated with full-spectrum, CBD-rich cannabis oil, providing all the benefits of the natural cannabis plant.

Full-spectrum, whole plant CBD products are popular worldwide for their calming and balancing effects, making them perfect for those seeking wellness benefits. Real Scientific® has years of experience creating high-quality full-spectrum CBD products. We are excited to offer these CBD products to our customers across Canada.
