Adults 21 years of age and over can buy cannabis products from nine licensed hybrid retailers in the state beginning no earlier than 10 a.m., today, Jan. 10, according to a Department of Consumer Protection press release. 

Sales will be limited to 1/4 ounce of cannabis flower, or its equivalent, per transaction. Patients in the Medical Marijuana Program may purchase up to 5 ounces per month, according to the press release.

Different types and sizes of products may be purchased together up to a total of 1/4 ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent per transaction. Examples of what 1/4 of an ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent might look like include:

  • Up to 7 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 1 gram each, or 14 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 0.5 grams each. Or any combination up to 7 total grams, which equals 1/4 ounce.
  • Two to four 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 1/4 of an ounce.

Patients in the Medical Marijuana Program are advised to purchase any necessary medication at one of the nine medical-only dispensaries in the state, as long lines and traffic are expected around the hybrid retailers during the opening weeks of adult-use sales.
