The state of Michigan has issued information on the labeling of medical marijuana. All products containing tetrahydrocannabinol should be labeled with the new universal symbol.
Based on an advisory bulletin released by Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs on Feb. 15, a marijuana plant or marijuana product containing tetrahydrocannabinol that is being sold or transferred must include the universal symbol and must be labeled according to Rules 38 and 39 of the state’s emergency rules for medical marijuana.
The Medical Marihuana Facility Licensing Division regulates the state’s medical marihuana facilities and licensees, including growers, processors, transporters, provisioning centers, and safety compliance facilities.
New Symbol And Labeling Required
The new universal symbol shows an image of a marijuana leaf inside an inverted green triangle. The words “Contains THC” is just above the triangle. This symbol should be labeled on marijuana plants and products sold or transferred to provisioning centers.
However, if the plant or product does not meet the definition of “marihuana” as defined in the Medical Marihuana Licensing Act, the universal symbol is not required.
Other important specifications and descriptions that should be labeled on the marijuana plant or product are the following: name and licensee and license number of the producer and packager, tag or source number as assigned by the state’s monitoring system, and the unique identification number for the package or harvest.
Distributors must also properly label the plant or product with the date of harvest, strain type, net weight, and THC
