New CT limits sales of THC-infused beverages


Under the new law, which takes effect July 1, THC-infused beverages will only be sold at cannabis dispensaries, retailers and package stores that are exempt.

These beverages are non-alcoholic and may contain no more than 3 milligrams of THC per 12-ounce container, and may be advertised as “hemp-derived,” delta-8, delta-9, delta-10, THCA or HHC. They are only available for purchase by people over the age of 21.

“The Department of Consumer Protection team has worked hard to quickly implement the provisions of this new law passed by the Legislature and to communicate those changes to affected businesses,” said DCP Commissioner Brian T. Caffarelli. “This new law ensures improved consumer protections, including improved packaging and labeling requirements, as well as testing standards that are consistent with testing standards for cannabis products. Thanks to the businesses that have complied with the law, as well as the team at DCP for their work.”

In addition to these requirements, the new law also mandates other packaging and labeling standards.
