Conversion Oil May Be Coming To Michigan

The Beginning of the End of Licensed Outdoor Cultivation?

Some of the most popular cannabis products across the industry are cannabis-infused edibles and cartridges. Cannabis-infused edible products are produced by licensed processors, who use an intensive process that involves extraction equipment needed to extract concentrated oil from cannabis plant matter before adding that oil into normal baked goods or other confectionary goods. This distilled oil, also referred to as “distillate”, is also used for vaporized cartridges. Michigan’s Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) recently proposed a new rule that would allow licensed processors to purchase industrial hemp for the purpose of producing conversion oil to be used for cannabis products for sale in Michigan’s licensed cannabis market.
