Product Category Guidance

Product Categories:

1. Usable Marijuana

Examples: Flower, Popcorn/Nuggets, Shake/Trim, Kief, Sand, and Pre-rolls/Blunts intended to be smoked. Concentrates that do not undergo extraction: Kief, Sand, or similar non extracted concentrate intended to be smoked. This category also includes products like flower and pre-rolls enhanced with concentrates or oils that are intended to be smoked.

Note: Many businesses call pre-rolls or flower products enhanced with concentrates “infused pre-rolls” or “infused flower” products leading to incorrect categorization. CRTA definition makes it clear a cannabis-infused product is not intended to be smoked. As such, these products should be categorized as Usable Marijuana.

"Cannabis-infused Product" means a beverage, food, oil, ointment, tincture, topical formulation, or another product containing cannabis that is not intended to be smoked. [410 ILCS 705/1-10]
