Colorado regulators have officially adopted new rules for testing cannabis vapor. According to cannabis insiders, the regulations could have an impact on ensuring consumer safety for vape products. Also, the new regulations could add another cost to cannabis companies. The Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division’s new rules, released Oct. 9, are intended to help reassure consumers about the safety of tested legal products. The regulations require companies to test “emissions” from vape products. The regulation requires companies to essentially, examine the aerosol the consumer is inhaling that’s produced from vaping cannabis oil. Until now, the oil has been analyzed in laboratories. Another Colorado rule requires manufacturers to label cannabis vape cartridges with an expiration date. The new regulations don’t take effect until Jan. 1, 2021.
