Packaging Regulations

Kansas does not currently have a medical marijuana program. However, there is a bill in the Kansas legislature that would legalize medical marijuana. If the bill passes, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment would be responsible for developing regulations for the packaging and labeling of medical marijuana.

The proposed regulations would require medical marijuana to be packaged in child-resistant containers. The containers would also be required to be labeled with the following information:

  • The name of the product.
  • The name of the manufacturer.
  • The amount of THC in the product.
  • A warning that marijuana has intoxicating effects and may be habit forming and addictive.
  • A warning that marijuana impairs concentration, coordination, and judgment. Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under its influence.
  • A warning that there are health risks associated with consumption of marijuana.
  • A warning that marijuana should not be used by women who are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • A warning that marijuana is for use only by adults 21 years of age and older. Keep out of the reach of children.
  • The universal symbol for cannabis.

The proposed regulations would also require medical marijuana to be labeled with a unique identifier that can be used to track the product from the point of manufacture to the point of sale.

Shipping Regulations

– It’s Federally illegal to transport cannabis products across state lines, excluding hemp-derived CBD products
– Importing certain materials such as vape batteries and cartridges may be considered Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems or ENDS under the PACT ACT, and thus may be challenging to ship.
– Any transportation of cannabis products is a crime.
