Package Labelling Overview
Package labelling conveys information about nutrition, ingredients, quantity, dosage, certifications, trademarks, country of origin, date markings, place of business and the TVCI logo, if accredited. The country of sale sets the label’s legal requirements. The Vancouver Cannabis Initiative standards add links to Traceability, Certificate of Analysis and Client Rights.
Identified On Label (IOL)
This site makes use of the term Identified On Label or IOL. This means exactly what it says; this information must be clearly identified on the product labelling.
Each country has legal essentials for package labelling. The country of sale will enforce such information as the listing of ingredients, required declaration of certain vitamins and minerals, fats, intrinsic and added sugars: Serving sizes, number of servings per package and calories: Languages, date markings, country of origin and company information, label format and typography. Legal essentials standardize labels to some extent, creating a starting point for clients to compare products.
All ingredients must be listed on the label and in descending order of predominance by weight. A product may be promoted as many things but the truth lies in the ingredient list. TVCI standards call for marijuana with no additive or adulterant ingredients to be the foundation of any marijuana product.
Each country of sale’s legal requirements addresses labelling of nutritional and medicinal values. In addition to THC and CBD marijuana has its own unique compounds. Specific primary medicinal compounds must be made clear on the label. Access to verified COA of each product must be provided to clients before sale without them having to request it. Learn about the primary Cannabis compounds that must be IOL.
Certification symbols have become an easy way for consumers to qualify products but these symbols are only as valuable as their corresponding certifying organizations. High standards and worldwide collaboration are on record for certified organic. Other certifications may not be so well developed or have competing organizations. Certifiers are businesses and their credentials must be reviewed and not taken at face-value. Flashy symbols must be backed-up with integrity.
The Vancouver Cannabis Initiative accreditation means your marijuana product is the purist in the world backed by standards, testing and integrity. Trust TVCI.
Traceability of product conventionally means tracking a product from point of origin to point of sale. The Vancouver Cannabis Initiative extends that definition for each marijuana product package to also include client access to the corresponding Certificate of Analysis (COA) reports that specify exact amounts of nutritional and medicinal values and TVCI Organic+ records. Clients must be freely provided access to this information before purchase.
