Educating our community, from within the industry.
OREC believes that many of the current public concerns regarding edibles can be alleviated by aggressive and effective public education campaigns. Our members consist of Oregon cannabis-related business owners who are contributing funds to provide these campaigns to Oregonians without relying on or needing any further action from the state.
Promoting safe and responsible edible consumption, to safeguard all Oregonians.
The “Try 5” campaign teaches consumers new to edibles about how to dose properly and encourages extra caution for first time users. Posters and handout cards will be supplied to all OHA licensed dispensaries.
Our ``Try 5`` campaign is just one educational solution. OREC wants to bring awareness to edible consumption through the following outlets:
Marijuana Handler Certification Program
Dispensaries can take part in our “budtender” training course and become certified as knowledgable edible cannabinoid product sellers capable of quickly and effectively educating edible customers in a fast-paced retail environment at the point of sale.
Marijuana Exposure Pamphlet
Informational pamphlet compiling information and source material on signs & symptoms of marijuana exposure in children and recommendations for treatment options.
Youth Prevention That Works
Effective youth oriented campaigns are essential to lowering the levels of teen use, now that access will become more difficult. We fully support the Youth Prevention Pilot Program.
Outreach to parents about other potential sources of exposure (Grandparents, family members, friend’s house, etc) and tips on effective at-home storage will be the focus of our next campaign.
