Oregon Formally Bans Beverage Alcohol Products Containing Cannabis

December 27, 2019

With the regulatory system governing cannabis products continuing to evolve, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has issued a new rule formally outlawing alcoholic beverages that contain any form of cannabis.

Under a new rule effective January 1, the OLCC has made it “a violation for any licensee or permittee to manufacture, store, transport, sell, or offer to sell an alcoholic beverage that contains CBD, THC, or any other cannabis derivative, including cannabis terpenes.”

While Oregon law does allow for the sale of some CBD products on liquor licensed premises, the OLCC cautions that those cases are limited to hemp-sourced CBD and subject to rigorous state testing standards.
