PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The sale of recreational marijuana edibles and extracts will begin in Oregon on June 2.

The Oregon Health Authority sent out a bulletin to dispensaries Tuesday outlining the temporary rules for the sale of "limited marijuana retail products."

The sale of recreational marijuana began in Oregon in October 2015. Registered medical marijuana dispensaries that are participating in early start retail sales can begin selling edibles, extracts and non-psychoactive medical topicals on June 2.

Those dispensaries must continue to comply with Oregon Health Authority rules for early retail marijuana sales, including verifying buyers are at least 21 years of age. They must also document the amount sold, the prices of the products and the birth dates of the purchasers.

The Oregon Health Authority temporary rules for retail marijuana products are:

  • Sale of one low-dose cannabinoid edible to a retail customer per day. A low-dose cannabinoid edible means an edible that has no more than 15 mg of THC.
  • Sales of non-psychoactive medical cannabinoid topicals which contains not more than 6 percent of THC.
  • Sale of one prefilled receptacle of an extract to a retail customer per day that does not contain more than 1,000 mg of THC.

All limited retail marijuana products sold at medical marijuana dispensaries are subject to a 25 percent sales tax.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is set to begin issuing retail store licenses in October, with recreational sales at medical dispensaries coming to an end in December.
