The countdown is on for retail cannabis sales in the State of Connecticut, officially. According to a Facebook post from Governor Ned Lamont and from a press release from the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, "licensed hybrid retailers may begin selling cannabis products to all adults 21 and over beginning no earlier than 10 a.m., or as local zoning permits, on Tuesday, January 10, 2023."

Cue the fireworks, marching bands, and parades for cannabis consumers, well, maybe not, but at least it will get a whole lot easier to obtain your product in less than a month. At first, it is going to be bizay fo shizay (busy for sure), so make sure you are prepared to wait in a long line. The press release from CDCP urges patients that are in the Medical Marijuana Program to get their medication before the big day gets here or go to one of the nine medical-only dispensaries around the state.

For the recreational user, keep in mind before you go that you can only get a 1/4 of an ounce of cannabis flower or its equivalent, the press release gives some examples of what a breakdown might look like:

  • Up to 7 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 1 gram each, or 14 pre-rolled cigarettes that weigh 0.5 grams each. Or any combination up to 7 total grams, which equals 1/4 ounce.

  • Two to four vape cartridges, which come in .5 mL and 1 mL sizes.

  • Edibles vary by type and size. A standard-sized brownie or cookie can be the equivalent of .08 grams of cannabis flower. One edible serving cannot have more than 5 milligrams of THC.

  • A combination of different product types that collectively amount to no more than ¼ of an ounce.
