Rising Health Concerns After Legalization Of Cannabis Edibles

Healthcare providers are being encouraged to be more frank with their patients about cannabis edible usage. Ever since its legalization in 2019, consumption of edible cannabis products in Canada has become increasingly popular, and as with any new regulation there needs to be proper discussion and education on responsible consumption amongst the general public. 

Although regulations have been amended to ensure standardized dosing limits, children and senior adults still face additional risks for overconsumption and accidental consumption. In addition to strict safety measures on product packaging, physicians are encouraged to have conversations with their patients and provide counsel for safe consumption and driving while discouraging the use of illicit or homemade edibles.
