CBD in Food and Beverages

CBD in Food and Beverages


You were probably pretty stoked when you heard that the Minnesota legislature had passed a bill that would provide clarity on CBD in food and beverage. However, the bill also included some regulations on certain products.

We’re here to tell you that you shouldn’t be too worried about these new regulations. Yes, they’re stricter than we would like, but they’re mostly related to manufacturers, not the consumers. Here’s what you need to know about the new bill.

First of all, let’s talk about what CBD is. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a compound found in cannabis plants. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD is not psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high.

According to the bill, in Minnesota, CBD and other cannabinoids are now officially allowed in food and beverage products. This is great news for those who want to enjoy the benefits of CBD without having to smoke or vape it. Now, you can simply add CBD to your favorite food or beverage and enjoy the benefits!

CBD is now available in a variety of forms. You can find it in oils, tinctures, capsules, edibles, topicals, and more. There is no one “right” way to take CBD. It is important to experiment to find the form and dosage that works best for you.

If you are interested in trying CBD, be sure to do your research. Look for a reputable brand that offers third-party lab results. This will ensure that the product you are taking is high quality and contains the amount of CBD that is advertised on the label. Now that CBD is officially allowed in food and beverage products in Minnesota, there is no excuse not to try it!


According to the bill, each of these cannabinoids will be limited to 0.3% weight by volume. That means that even though cannabinoid vape products are no longer available, there are still other ways to use cannabinoids. 

When it comes to edibles, the 0.3% THC limit remains in place. However, each serving is now limited to 5 mg of any one THC cannabinoid. Additionally, packages cannot have over 50 mg of THC.

The new rules on food and drink products sold in the retail market have regulations for sellers. This means that any product that does not meet the new thresholds set by the government cannot be sold. While it is still legal to possess and consume these products, we cannot sell them to the general public in such packages.

This is a major change for businesses and consumers alike, and it will take some time to get used to. In the meantime, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the new rules and we are here to ensure that each of our products comply.
