The state’s increase in THC limits could lead to a decrease in prices

The marijuana products that different manufacturers and retailers are bringing to the Alaska market may soon come with double the potency, a move that could definitely cause a major boom in overall sales. As reported by the Anchorage Daily News, the new rule that goes into effect as soon as September begins will give consumers the option of buying marijuana edibles containing up to a total of ten milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and packages that include up to a total of ten individual products.

The new rule in The Last Frontier State would bring the market up to speed with other states in the country since in other established cannabis markets, this is the amount of THC usually handled. According to several experts, the increase in the amount of THC could cause prices to decrease. This is mainly because manufacturers will have to spend less on the packaging because smaller containers cost more. On the other hand, they will also have the possibility to create bigger and stronger products at a price close to the same.

It is clear to say that by making the price more accessible to consumers, a higher volume of sales could start to be noticed, both for retailers and edible manufacturers. According to Alaska state law, residents are legally allowed to purchase up to 5,600 milligrams of THC per day.

To date, THC is known worldwide for treating muscle stiffness diseases such as Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis, as well as being a great alternative for treating chronic pain from various causes, particularly neuropathic, metastatic and osteoarthritis-related pain, as well as many other benefits.
