What does the cannabis excise stamp mean for consumers?


Canadian laws have changed.

Cannabis products will now be produced, distributed, and sold to consumers legally under strict rules put in place by Health Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency.

But how will Canadians know if the cannabis products they are buying are legal?

This is how.

This excise stamp must be affixed to every single cannabis product packaged for sale.

This is done by the producer of the product – the cannabis licensee.

The stamp means you’re buying from a Canada Revenue Agency licence holder who is meeting their tax obligations – and it means that the product is legal.

The stamp will be clearly displayed on the package and has security features so it cannot be tampered with or counterfeited.

Look for the cannabis excise stamp – and if you don’t see it, don’t buy or use the product.
