Our products have nothing to hide. Every item we produce has its exact ingredients listed. If it’s in there, it’ll be on the packaging.
There’s a lot going on in the world of cannabis, but this isn’t the Wild West. The government is working on new regulations all the time, enabling even more innovation in cannabis, from edibles and beverages to concentrates and topicals. That’s amazing news—for us and for you.
Tweed is a government-approved licensed producer held to incredibly high standards. Sure, that makes our jobs more challenging, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Starting December 17, 2019, we’ll be releasing new product classes which you might start to see in your area depending on where you live. Sure, things like pre-rolls, softgels, oil, and bud are wonderful...but what’s life without a little spice? You’ve got to change things up every once in a while. Take a scroll down innovation lane and see what you have to look forward to.
Oh, and before we get started, you’re probably wondering how each product will affect your carrying limit when you are in a public place. The law states you can’t carry more than the equivalent of 30 g of dried flower for recreational purposes...but how do you know when you’ve hit your limit when carrying these new product classes? Every new product package will indicate an equivalency factor to dried flower right on the label, so you can always make sure you’re following the rules. That’s what those rules are there for. To be followed.
Vape pens will be available where these types of products can be sold in Canada. For the record, some areas will start carrying them in mid-December, but it all depends on your province. For those who don’t choose to smoke, and even for those who do, vapes may offer the same onset time as smoking.
Cannabis vape pens and vape cartridges will be permitted to contain up to 1000 mg of THC per package, so you’re really getting bang for your buck. Our vape products will only contain 100% cannabis oil extract and terpenes. That’s it. Nothing else. No propylene glycol, no vitamin E acetate.
Now, keep in mind: the cannabis extract used in vapes can be very potent (meaning they can contain high levels of THC), which makes it even more crucial that you start low and go slow. Trust us on this one. When vaping cannabis, the effects could begin within seconds to minutes and last up to six hours (although sometimes it’s as long as 24 hours).
Remember, there may be health risks associated with vaping that are not fully known or understood. For more, refer to this information from Health Canada.
If you’re familiar with making cannabis edibles, then you know that fatty ingredients (like butter or oil) are usually required. That’s why most DIY cannabis drink recipes are either ineffective or involve some type of hot milk product. Even if you find a ready-to-drink product from a non-licensed producer, there’s no guarantee it’ll be safe, measured accurately, or produced in a clean facility. Don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound the most appealing.
However, our new cannabis-infused drinks hitting the market will use innovative techniques to make sure that they have the right consistency, the right quality, and (of course) the right taste. Oh, and these drinks are alcohol-free by the way.
Just like vapes, drinks will be available wherever cannabis is sold in your area, and will become available in some provinces starting in mid-December. They’ll be limited to a maximum of 10 mg of THC per package, and there are currently no limits on CBD. Again, like vapes, starting low and going slow is extremely important. Just like any other cannabis product that’s swallowed or eaten, the onset of cannabis beverage effects can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. These effects can last up to 12 hours, but some may last as long as 24 hours.
It would be a pretty big missed opportunity to not take advantage of the former chocolate factory that we now call home. Made with cannabis distillate, cannabis-infused chocolate will be infused with approximately the same amount of THC and/or CBD per piece, taking the guesswork out of consuming edibles. You’ll be able to find cannabis-infused chocolate, among other edibles, come mid-December at certain licensed cannabis retail environments.
If you’re consuming edibles, whether it’s chocolate or another form, you really need to start low and go slow. The onset time for edible effects can be anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours, and they can last up to 12 hours, sometimes even 24. It’s probably best if you just take it one piece at a time.
Now, stop us if you’ve heard this one before...but these products will be available wherever cannabis is legally sold starting in mid-December, depending on your province.
