Required permission(s): destruction_lot_read

  1. In the Destruction module, open the Settings tab.

  2. Open the Destruction Substance Types sub-tab.

  3. Select a destruction substance type. This opens a menu of actions.

  4. Click Edit. This opens an Edit Destruction Substance Type modal.

  5. Edit the substance type's name and CRA reporting category, if applicable. If adjusting the CRA reporting category, consult the Cannabis Act to ensure the appropriate category is selected.

    • Flowering material is defined by the CRA as "the whole or any part (other than viable seeds) of an inflorescence of a cannabis plant at any stage of development, including the infructescence stage of development. Inflorescence is commonly defined as a combination of the flowers and the ultimate small twigs of the branching system subtending the flowers. This includes what is commonly known in the industry as the bud and the small sugar leaves or other materials (bracts, stems, etc.)"

    • Non-flowering material is defined by the CRA as "any part of a cannabis plant other than flowering material, viable seeds and a part of the plant that is a non-viable seed, a mature stalk without any leaf, flower, seed or branch of the plant, fiber derived from a stalk of the plant, and the root or any part of the root of the plant."

    • Untracked refers to a substance type that does not fit neatly into either of the other two categories.

  6. Click Save to save the changes.
