That we changed our labels overnight underscores The Green Cross’ commitment to abide by the laws and regulations of the San Francisco Department of Health.

The Green Cross, a San Francisco medical marijuana dispensary, has announced new labels for each of their Incredible Edibles products, which contain medicinal cannabis. The changes were made to comply with the City and County of San Francisco Department of Health’s new guidelines designed to ensure patients are fully informed about these types of medical products.

“That we changed our labels overnight underscores The Green Cross’ commitment to abide by the laws and regulations of the San Francisco Department of Health,” said Kevin Reed, President of The Green Cross. “As with most of the guidelines issued by the San Francisco Department of Health, these new guidelines are reasonable and should be easy to comply with.”

The Green Cross’ immediate compliance with the new rules underscores their commitment to strict adherence to the law and safe access to edible medical cannabis options for their members. The new labels are designed to better inform users that the product is medicine, not food and make them unattractive / unappealing to children. The Green Cross has removed all images of the edible product from the label and changed the names to make them more descriptive. For example, Blueberry Craze Cookie is now simply named Blueberry Cookie.

The new rules also require that labels include the estimated net weight of the cannabis contained in each product and the statements: “For Medical Use Only” and “Keep Out of Reach of Children,” two items of information The Green Cross’s medical marijuana labels already contained.

“These new guidelines are necessary and will help better inform patients and the general public about medical cannabis edible products,” said Reed.
