Southwestern Ontario pot producers expanding to meet demand

Cannabis producers in Southwestern Ontario – one of the nation’s emerging marijuana belts – are going on an expansion spree, a move an industry official says will help reduce the nation’s cannabis shortage.

The combination of high demand for pot products and growing pains in the nascent cannabis industry has led to empty shelves at online stores and bricks-and-mortar retailers across the country since recreational marijuana became legal in Canada on Oct. 17.

Meanwhile, the country’s legion of licensed growers, including several in the London region, are working around the clock to expand their operations to meet the growing demand for their products.

Health Canada releases draft proposal for edible and topical cannabis regulations

Recreational marijuana has been legal in Canada for more than two months, but some companies have been in limbo as regulations remain to be put in place for cannabis edibles, topicals, and extracts.

Health Canada has now released a first draft proposal of regulations for those products, which may have a large impact not just on retail store sales but also on the ability to consume marijuana in public locations.

Canadians bought $43M worth of marijuana in the first 2 weeks after legalization

Statistics Canada says sales at cannabis stores in the two weeks after legalization totalled $43 million.

The agency started collecting data for in-store and online sales from cannabis retailers as of Oct. 17, when fresh or dried bud, oil, plants and seeds became legal for recreational use in the country.

The first set of data released Friday as part of the agency's broader monthly retail trade figures only encompassed two weeks, but will reflect a complete reference month in the future.

Statistics Canada says different retail structures in each province and territory affected cannabis availability across the country.

The 3 biggest marijuana questions in 2019

This has been a year of big gains for the marijuana industry, even if it's been quite the opposite for marijuana investors, who, in many instances, have seen their pot stocks fall by 25% or more this year. In particular, it's been a year of legitimacy for the cannabis industry. In October, Canada became the first industrialized country in the world, and only the second overall, to legalize recreational pot. Though it'll take a few years for growers to ramp up their production, this legalization validates the cannabis business model and paves the way for billions of dollars in added annual sales. We also witnessed a handful of U.S.

Many more people in Montreal may receive marijuana-smoking bans from their landlords in the next month

When marijuana was officially legalized in Canada on October 17th, 2018, an entire new legal code also came into effect. Under the Cannabis Act, landlords had 90 days to send tenants notice of a marijuana-smoking ban. Just weeks after legalization, we already noticed some frustrated Montrealers being notified of smoking-bans by their condo management. 

Many Montrealers scratched their heads and wondered, "if I own my condo, how is it possible that my building can tell me where I can and can't smoke weed?"

Manitoba seizing pot from Winnipeg-based Bonify

Manitoba regulators have seized all cannabis products provided by a Winnipeg-based company that were shipped to licenced retail stores.

The Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation say the sale of all cannabis products produced by Bonify are suspended over quality-control issues.

Premier Brian Pallister says he believes illegal cannabis entered the legal distribution system.

He says Health Canada was notified more than a week ago, but the province was only told Tuesday, and heard from the company, not the federal government.

Pallister says it's unacceptable that his government was not notified earlier, and customers need to know that what they are buying is approved and licenced.

These are the proposed regulations for cannabis edibles and creams

Health Canada has released draft regulations for cannabis edibles and extracts, which include strict limits on dosage and ingredients.

For edibles, Health Canada is proposing plain child-resistant packaging, restricting the ingredients that can be used and limiting the edible to 10 milligrams of THC per package, which is largely considered the typical amount for a single dose. Additionally, regular food and edible cannabis products must not be produced in the same facility.
