Oregon Set to Sell Rec Cannabis Edibles and Extracts June 2
Starting June 2, marijuana-infused edibles, extracts and non-psychoactive topical products will be available for recreational sale in Oregon. Medical cardholders in Oregon already have access to marijuana edibles. Since October, marijuana flower, starter plants, and seeds have been available for recreational sale.
The Oregon Health Authority issued a bulletin detailing guidelines for edible sales:
- Retail customers, who must be over 21, can buy one low-dose marijuana infused edible per day at medical marijuana dispensaries that sell to recreational customers. “Low dose” means an edible with no more than 15 milligrams of THC.
- Non-psychoactive marijuana-based topical products, like lotions and balms, that contain no more than 6 percent of THC.
- One pre-filled cartridge or container of marijuana extract per day. This type of product is typically consumed using a portable vaporizer device. The container may not contain more than 1,000 milligrams of THC.
The health authority’s directive expands the sale of the products to the new legal recreational marijuana market. Extracts and edibles sold recreationally are subject to the same 25 percent state sales tax that is applied to marijuana flowers. Agency officials said that residency would no longer be a factor for people who own a marijuana company under proposed rules the commission will take up next month.
A separate state law passed earlier this year removed the original 2-year residency requirement for recreational marijuana licensees. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) will begin issuing licenses under this law starting June 2.
Currently, more than 300 medical dispensaries are participating in the state’s early recreational marijuana sales. The OLCC has yet to issue a license for a recreational marijuana dispensary. The agency said it plans to issue its first dispensary licenses in October. By Jan. 1, 2017, all recreational sales will have to take place at OLCC-licensed dispensaries.
While we do not currently sell our products in Oregon, we support legalization and safe medical access to cannabis everywhere.
Mountain High Suckers Featured on BBC News
Recently, Mountain High Suckers products were featured in a BBC News article focused on explaining the legal cannabis market in Colorado to a British audience. The author begins at a Colorado based, cannabis friendly bed and breakfast and is surprised to see the scale of the amount and diversity of cannabis based products.
Other than CLEAR, a UK based cannabis advocacy group looking to legalize cannabis and modernize how its viewed in Europe, cannabis is widely unused and clearly illegal in England and the rest of the United Kingdom. Our local residents may have to forgive the sometimes amazed tone the article takes, but it can also remind us of how much our Colorado legal cannabis industry has accomplished!

Recall: Proactive Service
We want to take this opportunity to reach out to you and let you know how this recall came to pass and what we’re doing to prevent it from happening again in the future. Our company was notified that there was a possibility some of our products could contain pesticides not allowed for use in commercial cannabis cultivation. Our leadership considered the situation and we chose to submit samples from not only the suspect products but from every production batch we had a sample of.
This is the reason why our recall had such a high number of units involved. In the interest of transparency, we made the decision to do the right thing and test everything we could instead of just what was required. While we are saddened by the results of those tests, we are confident that this will not happen again now that pesticide testing is readily available and will be performed on everything we make before it goes out to the stores.
Thank you all for your patronage!
Today a recall is being issued on some of our medical and recreational products so we wanted to take this opportunity to address the matter and sincerely apologize to our patients and customers. A couple of weeks ago it was brought to our attention that our products may contain pesticides that have been deemed unusable on cannabis. We decided to take a proactive step and submit samples of all of our products for pesticide testing so we can help make sure that our products are safe. Going forward, we will be voluntarily submitting every concentrate batch we make for full pesticide screening before we make products. The results of the tests have come through and we ask that anyone who possesses any of our products with the following concentrate batch numbers to please dispose of them promptly and responsibly. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns!
Medical: 515, 516, 517, 518, 519 and 523
Recreational: 002 and 003
Thank you all for your patronage and have a happy new year!
Mountain High Suckers
Review: Culture Magazine
This week, Mountain High Suckers have another review out in Culture magazine!
For years, the only time you heard about lozenges were from a strange man in the Alps. Fast forward to 2015 and Mountain High Suckers are making them the coolest—and not in a mentholated way. Our pack had three flavors, our favorite being the mouthwatering tangerine that didn’t leave a noticeable weedy aftertaste. Now offered for recreational users, the 10mg packs even boast a little CBD, although you’re predominantly feeling a nice head effect and body relaxation. We had two reviewers split a pack, both noting that it made them feel much better—and different—than the Ricolas they tried earlier.

Pineapple Toasted Coconut Review by The Hemp Connoisseur
Review: Mountain High Suckers in August The Hemp Connoisseur
This month, Mountain High Suckers was reviewed in the Hemp Connoisseur magazine!
Edibles with CBD enriched medicine are always in demand and Mountain High Suckers has been one of the pioneers. They offer a wide selection of flavors with their hard candies and suckers. For patients who are looking for quality CBD products or looking to try edibles for the first time, Mountain High Suckers are a great option. The watermelon sucker that I tried for this review was testing at 6mg CBD, 1.2 CBN and 32.8mg THC. This was a great dose. It was level and mellow enough for daytime use. I found that the sucker started with a light body high that helped with some pains I was dealing with. I was able to stay fully function and work throughout the day. Their suckers definitely taste better than the majority of the candies on the market, which have too much of a weedy taste. A couple hours after having the sucker I did have an increase in appetite and wished I had another sucker. Patients who are looking for a discreet, low dose product to help them get through the day should consider Mountain High Suckers. www.mountainhighsuckers.com
