Cannabis bath salts and body butter? Ontario officially expands product line
If you've been patiently waiting to order cannabis edibles, extracts, beverages and other products, you might be happy to hear that your patience will be rewarded—and soon.
While such cannabis products have been legal in Canada since Oct. 17, 2019, they have yet to hit legal retail shelves or the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), Ontario's official online cannabis retailer.
The OCS says this is due to the regulatory timelines and approval processes put in place by Health Canada to ensure new cannabis products are safe for consumption.
Now, the OCS says the earliest possible date that cannabis products will be legally available for sale in Ontario is the week of Jan. 6, 2020.
Products will first appear in retail stores and then on OCS.ca as early as Jan. 16.
"As different producers are at varying stages of the licensing process outlined above, products will see a staggered release throughout the first few months of the year," the OCS says on its official website.
Here's a look at what product types authorized retail cannabis stores and OCS.ca will be offering:
