New Rules for Recreational Cannabis in CT
A new rule change for cannabis purchases is set to take effect in Connecticut. The state's Department of Consumer Protection has announced transaction limits will increase to 1/2 ounce of raw flower or the equivalent per transaction beginning December 1st, 2023.
That means recreational consumers will now be able to buy up to 1/2 ounce of cannabis at one time.
This amount is a boost up from the previously allowed 1/4 ounce for recreational customers. In short, it means MORE of your favorite products, MORE convenient shopping, and MORE relief.
Different types and sizes of products may be purchased together up to a total of 1/2 ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent per transaction. Examples of what 1/2 of an ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent might look like include:
Up to 14 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 1 gram each, or 28 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 0.5 grams each. Or any combination up to 14 total grams, which equals 1/2 ounce.
- Four to eight vape cartridges, which come in .5 mL and 1 mL sizes.
- Edibles vary by type and size. A standard-sized brownie or cookie can be the equivalent of .08 grams
- of cannabis flower. One edible serving cannot have more than 5 milligrams of THC.
- A combination of different product types that collectively amount to no more than 1/2 an ounce.
It's important to note, the limit for medical marijuana patients is unchanged. Patients are not subject to individual transaction limits and may still purchase up to 5 ounces of cannabis or cannabis products per month.
Connecticut cannabis law allows possession of up to a TOTAL of 1 1/2 ounces of cannabis. You may also store up to 5 ounces in a locked container at home or transport it in a locked glovebox or trunk.
The state says transaction limits exist in order to ensure adequate supply for both adult-use consumers and medical marijuana patients. They will continue to be reviewed over time based on an ongoing analysis of available supply and customer demand.
