Government Cracks Down on Packaging that Appeals to Kids and Imitates Popular Foods

Sellers of edible cannabis products need to be more cautious about their packaging choices. When these products resemble popular kids' snacks and candy, it poses a serious health risk to children and unsuspecting adults. Edibles made with cannabis or even other compounds such as delta 8, HHC, and even THC-O, such as gummies, brownies, cookies, hard candies, drinks, and chips, will cause psychoactive and intoxicating effects, which can have a significant impact on the health of both adults and children.

The FTC and FDA are cracking down on sellers of cannabis-infused products that are using packaging that appeals to kids. Warning letters are being sent out to the companies to address this issue.

The letter warns sellers to halt marketing of edible Delta-8 THC products that mimic regular food and in packaging that may attract kids.

The number of calls to poison control centers regarding accidental cannabis ingestion has been on the rise, particularly in states where marijuana is legal. This increase in calls poses a greater risk for younger children, making it crucial to keep Delta-8 THC products out of their reach. The FDA advises households using edible cannabis products to take extra caution.

Important Precautions for Storing Delta 8 Edibles at Home:

To ensure the safety of everyone in your household, here are some essential precautions to remember when keeping Delta 8 edibles around the house:

1. Separate them from other foods: It's crucial to store cannabis edibles in their original packaging and keep them separate from other food items.

2. Child-proof cabinets and drawers: Take the necessary steps to prevent access to these products by child-proofing cabinets and drawers where they are stored.

3. Seal the packaging after each use: After each use, make sure to completely close the packaging and immediately store it in a secure location.

By following these precautions, you can maintain a safe environment and enjoy your Delta 8 edibles responsibly.

In conclusion, the rising concern over the packaging choices of edible cannabis products calls for increased caution among sellers. The potential health risks posed to children and unsuspecting adults cannot be ignored, especially when these products resemble popular snacks and candies. The crackdown by the FTC and FDA through warning letters is a step in the right direction.

However, it is essential for households to take their own precautions to ensure the safety of everyone. Separating cannabis edibles from other foods, child-proofing storage areas, and sealing the packaging after each use are simple yet crucial steps to maintain a safe environment. By adopting these measures, individuals can enjoy Delta 8 edibles responsibly and mitigate the risks associated with accidental ingestion.
