Packaging Regulations

The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) regulates the packaging and labeling of marijuana products in Oregon. The OLCC’s regulations are designed to ensure that marijuana products are safe and accurately labeled, and that they are not marketed in a way that appeals to minors.

All marijuana products must be packaged in child-resistant containers. The containers must also be opaque and resealable. The OLCC has approved a list of approved child-resistant containers, which can be found on the OLCC’s website.

The label on a marijuana product must include 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

In addition to the required information, the label may also include other information, such as the strain of marijuana, the date of harvest, and the name of the farm where the marijuana was grown.

The OLCC also regulates the marketing of marijuana products. Marijuana products cannot be marketed in a way that appeals to minors. For example, marijuana products cannot be marketed using cartoon characters or other images that are likely to appeal to minors.

The OLCC’s packaging and labeling regulations are enforced by the OLCC’s Compliance and Enforcement Division. The Compliance and Enforcement Division conducts inspections of marijuana businesses and investigates complaints about marijuana businesses.
