The Oregon Liquor & Cannabis Commission (OLCC) is holding a rulemaking hearing next week FRIDAY, June 16 at 10am regarding updates to the Artificially Derived Cannabinoids Rules- specifically for CBN product sales by OLCC licensees. Comments to OLCC are due by June 30th at 5pm.
Linked here, the proposed rulemaking extends the deadline for licensed CBN manufacturers to meet requirements under OLCC’s Artificially Derived Cannabinoids rule. In December 2021, the Commission adopted OAR 845-025-1310 to implement that portion of House Bill 3000. Generally, OAR 845-025-1310 requires that artificially derived cannabinoids must either be determined to be Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) or be the subject of a New Dietary Ingredient notification before they can be used in marijuana or hemp items sold in the adult use system. The rule also contains an exception allowing artificially derived cannabinol (CBN) to be used in products without meeting this requirement until July 1, 2023
OLCC is proposing to extend the ability of OLCC licensees to sell CBN manufactured before July 1, 2023 until Jan 1, 2025 if the manufacturing meets all food safety laws, is not a product intended for inhalation and does not contain a controlled substance. OLCC is additionally proposing to allow the sale of any CBN manufactured AFTER July 1, 2023 if again the manufacturing meets all food safety laws, is not a product intended for inhalation and does not contain a controlled substance, IF the manufacturer has written approval from OLCC and meets OLCC additional requirements.
