Medical Marijuana Product Compliant Logos

Guideline for Use of Product Compliant Logos

The official chapter 246-70 WAC compliant logos can only be used on marijuana products that meet all the requirements in those rules and the rules of the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB). This includes requirements for testing by a third-party testing lab certified by the WSLCB under WAC 314-55-102.

The logo may not be used on any object or merchandise other than a compliant marijuana product. The use of these logos on products that don't meet the requirements is a violation of the rules and may result in action against the licensee.

Logo requirements
  • The logo can be no smaller than 1/2 inch round.
  • The logo may only be printed in black or blue.
  • The logo must be readily visible by the consumer.
Packaging requirements
  • The product packaging label must prominently display the following statement: "This product is not approved by the FDA to treat, cure, or prevent any disease."
  • Packaging for all products utilizing a Chapter 246-70 WAC compliant logo must NOT:
    • Use any word(s), symbol, or image commonly used in or by medical or pharmaceutical professions including, but not limited to depiction of a caduceus, staff of Asclepius, bowl of Hygieia, or mortar and pestle.
    • Use of the word "prescription" or letters "RX."
    • State or imply any specific medical or therapeutic benefit.
    • Mimic a brand of over-the-counter or legend drug.
