Connecticut Packaging and Labeling Requirements

Connecticut’s cannabis labeling and packaging guidelines come from Sec. 21a-408-56 of its regulations:

  • A producer shall individually package, label, and seal marijuana products in unit sizes such that no single unit contains more than a one-month supply of marijuana.
  • A producer shall place any product containing marijuana in a child-resistant and light-resistant package.
  • A producer shall label each marijuana product prior to sale to a dispensary and shall securely affix to the package a label that states in legible English:
    • (1) The name and address of the producer;
    • (2) The brand name of the marijuana product that was registered with the department;
    • (3) A unique serial number that will match the product with a producer batch and lot number so as to facilitate any warnings or recalls the department or producer deem appropriate;
    • (4) The date of final testing and packaging;
    • (5) The expiration date;
    • (6) The quantity of marijuana contained therein;
    • (7) A terpenes profile and a list of all active ingredients, including:
      • (A) tetrahydrocannabinol (THC);
      • (B) tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA);
      • (C) cannabidiol (CBD); (D) cannabidiolic acid (CBDA); and
      • (E) any other active ingredient that constitute at least 1% of the marijuana batch used in the product.
    • (8) A pass or fail rating based on the laboratory’s microbiological, mycotoxins, heavy metals, and chemical residue analysis.
