When making edibles at home, such as cannabis-infused beverages or baked goods, it can be challenging to distribute cannabis evenly throughout a product. This can make it difficult to control potency and dosage of the edible.

Massachusetts law allows residents of the Commonwealth to grow marijuana at home. There are a few things you should know about Home Cultivation.

If you have any marijuana products in your home, be sure to store them away in a locked storage container and out of reach of children and pets.

Growing cannabis plants indoors often requires high-powered lamps, temperature controls, and expanded levels of ventilation which can overload electrical circuits and cause fires. To lower your risk of electrical fires, consult a licensed electrician to ensure you are following all relevant fire codes.

When making concentrates, extracting cannabis oil with flammable materials, such as propane and butane, is illegal. These materials release vapors that can easily trigger explosions. Consider alternative extraction methods.

Regulators will reconsider the state’s strict microbe standard

At Holistic Health Group’s farm in Middleborough, dozens of vacuum-sealed bags full of marijuana flower — worth hundreds of thousands of dollars at retail — have been sitting in a secure vault for months, stuck in limbo.

In this way, critics said, the strict limit makes outdoor cultivation financially risky, effectively freezing out equity applicants, craft cooperatives, the state’s 5,000-plus small family farms, and anyone else who can’t afford a multimillion-dollar indoor facility. It also drives up costs for marijuana consumers and patients, with companies charging more at the register to make back their big investments in climate-controlled warehouses, lab tests, remediation, and sanitation.
