Standard Specification for International Symbol for Identifying Consumer Products Containing Intoxicating Cannabinoids


1.1 This specification establishes an international symbol applicable to all products containing intoxicating cannabinoids at a quantity or concentration sufficient to have a warning deemed necessary by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).

1.2 This specification shall apply to all finished products that are intended for consumer use, which includes topical use, ingestion, inhalation, and any/all other methods of adsorption on or in the body of a human or animal.

1.3 This specification provides uniformity in identifying potential health and safety hazards associated with exposure to a substance that may cause intoxicating (that is, mind or consciousness altering, or both) effects.

1.4 This specification seeks to ensure visual clarity and consistency, which results in improvement of recognition and comprehension for the end user.

1.5 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
