It is old news that recreational cannabis is scheduled for legalization in Canada on October 17th, 2018 and that Health Canada has intentions to make edible recreational cannabis products (edibles) legal at a later date (perhaps within a year of the October legalization).

We can only presume that edibles will be subject to strict sale and possession limits, similar to recreational cannabis, which may be appropriate for products containing phytocannabinioids such as tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant.
