7 STEPS
TO SECURING YOUR LICENSE

To acquire your edibles license, you’ll need to complete the six steps below. Our team of qualified licensing experts will guide you along the way so that you can move through each stage as seamlessly as possible.

Collect Information

Collect site and personal information, create a corporate account, and set up your Cannabis Tracking and Licensing System (CTLS) account with Health Canada.

Prepare Your Application

Begin piecing together your application with all applicable information. Build out or retro-fit your site to meet GPP and Physical Security requirements.

Develop a Preventive Control Plan (PCP)

Identify and address through effective control measures any potential hazards that pose a risk of contamination for edible cannabis products. The Quality Assurance Person (QAP) will need to sign-off on the PCP prior to its implementation.

Provide Evidence

Gather supporting information (i.e. your “Site Evidence Package”), which will include photography, video and walkthrough documentation.

Submit Your Application

Apply through CTLS and receive your license application ID by Health Canada. Monitor the status of your submitted application on a regular basis.

Address Any Inquiries

Respond to any Requests for More Information (RMIs) during your application screening. All correspondence with Health Canada in relation to the application should include the application ID in the subject title.

EDIBLES

“Edibles” is a broad term used to describe food and drink products infused with cannabis. This could include chocolate, gummies, candies, cookies, snacks, spreads, and more.
For some, edibles represent a more discreet approach to enjoying cannabis. Edibles are also ideal for new or “cannabis-curious” consumers. Excitement is high around this segment, and a recent Deloitte report estimates that the edibles market could be worth $2.7 billion a year.* Given the expected demand for these products, getting an early start on your regulatory compliance is recommended.

EXTRACTS

Extracts, including oil (i.e. concentrates) are taken from the cannabis plant. The cannabinoids of the plant are condensed into as pure a form as possible. There are a variety of ways to consume extracts, such as smoking, vaping, dabbing, ingesting orally as drops (tinctures), or consuming them in edible form. Especially popular is the CBD extract, which has found its way into a variety of mainstream products. As the non-psychotropic ingredient in cannabis, CBD can help you feel more relaxed but won’t get you high.

TOPICALS

Topicals are further proof that cannabis can be delivered in a myriad of ways. They typically come in the form of lotions, balms, and oils that are applied directly to the skin to help reduce pain or inflammation. For example, one might use a topical cream post-workout to help reduce soreness (i.e. muscle inflammation) while another might use a topical cream to help reduce acne (i.e. skin inflammation). With so many different applications and uses, topicals promise to be another popular product category.

LABEL COMPLIANCE

Whichever category your product falls under, packaging will be an integral part of your business. However, you’ll need to work within the confines of government rules and regulations. While these rules are designed to protect the consumer, they can pose some challenges when it comes to marketing your product. We’ll help you understand what information must (and must not) appear on your packaging, and how you can work around any constraints to still create a beautifully branded offering.
