The Minnesota Department of Health is adding edibles to the state’s medical cannabis program.

The addition of edibles will take effect Aug. 1, 2022. Approved edibles will include gummies and chews.

“Expanding delivery methods to gummies and chews will mean more options for patients who cannot tolerate currently available forms of medical cannabis,” Minnesota Commissioner of Health Jan Malcolm said in a statement.

Edibles will be the second of two new options added to the medical cannabis program in 2022. Starting in March, patients will be able to get dried raw, smokable cannabis.

Currently, the allowed products for the Minnesota medical cannabis program are pills, vapor oil, liquids, topicals, powered mixtures, and orally dissolvable products, like lozenges.

Minnesotans must have one of 17 medical conditions to be eligible for the program.
