Cannabis Shopping Guide: How Much Cannabis Can I Buy?
We continue our series meant to help you around in your cannabis shopping in Colorado. Today we will cover purchase limits.
The limits on cannabis purchase are set by Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED).
There have been several changes in the recent history - Colorado residents and out of state visitors now have the same limits. And edibles, concentrates and so on now have their own limits, different from flower, which is only fair, since an ounce of concentrates has much more THC than flower.
How Much Cannabis Flower Can I Buy?
The basic number you need to remember is 1 ounce. Or 28 grams. This is the limit on buying cannabis flower in Colorado for recreational customers a day.
How Much Cannabis Extracts or Edibles Can I Buy?
If you want to buy vape oil, edibles or extract, you are allowed to buy an equivalent of 1 oz of flower. Here is how much you are allowed to purchase per day:
1 oz flower / 800 mg edibles / 8 g concentrate / 8 x 1000mg cartridges
You can mix and match within the ounce limit. For instance, you can buy 1/2 ounce of flower and 4g of concentrate in a single visit.
How Much Cannabis Can I Buy If I Have a MMJ Card?
The rules for medical customers are the same, but the limit on purchase and possession is 2 ounces of flower, and sometimes more, depending on your needs. The limit for other products is 20,000 mg of edibles or 8 g of concentrates / 8,000 mg in vape cartridges.
Keep in mind, that Colorado does not recognize out of state MMJ cards.
Can't I Just Go to Several Dispensaries and Buy More?
The limit is set for a total purchase in one day, and buying more, even at multiple dispensaries is illegal. It is also illegal to possess more than 2 ounces of flower or its equivalent. This is done for the purpose of stopping illegal resale.
