FAQs: Labeling & Packaging
Q:  Who came up with the 5mg limit for edibles?
  This was determined by the OHA.  By law, the OLCC is required to accept the OHA established limit. 
Q:  Are we unable to use the words: candy, sweet, or delicious on the label? 
A:  It is important to keep in mind the intent is for marijuana products to NOT be appealing to children. Businesses should use common sense in regards to what is appealing to children, and to remember all items should be geared towards adults.
Q:  Who is able to package products?
A:  All license types.
Q:  Who has to meet packaging for sale requirements?
A:  All license types.
Q: How can I learn more about the packaging and labeling pre-approval process?
A: The OLCC website has a section dedicated to packaging and labeling, you can find tutorials,
rules and training videos here.
Q:  Is child resistance required for the initial use or for each subsequent use?
A:  If there are multiple servings of a cannabinoid concentrate, extract or product, the package must be child resistant at all times.  Usable marijuana is only required to be in a child resistant package at time of sale. 
Q: After the most recent rule changes for packaging and labelling, can I continue to sell my product with its current label?
A: On August 15, 2018, new packaging and labeling rules went into effect. As a result the status of all labels approved before August 15, 2018 have been changed to “Resubmission Required.” Producers, processors, and wholesalers must transfer all of their previously approved label inventory to retailers before April 1, 2019. If they do not, the product will have to be relabeled or destroyed. Retailers may sell down products with previously approved labels through December 31, 2019. Starting January 1, 2020, marijuana items and industrial hemp commodities and products with labels approved prior to August 15, 2018, can no longer be sold, offered for sale, or transferred to a consumer, patient, or designated primary caregiver. Read the specific rules at: OAR 845-025-7190.
