Kyle Mack | posted Monday, Jan 6th, 2020

The latest in cannabis products will be available for legal sale in Ontario.

The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) is releasing 59 new products including edibles, beverages, lotions, and concentrates in stores today but online Jan 16.

Prices of edibles range from $7.50 to $16 per item while beverages can cost between $4 to $10 and vapes falling between $25 – $125. Daniel Safayeni, Director of Policy at The Ontario Chamber of Commerce has previously released a statement on the THC limit per edible stating,

“The OCC supports a THC limit of 10-milligrams per discrete unit of edibles, as well as the sale of multi-packs or multiple products—up to a maximum of 100-milligrams of THC per package—within child-proof packaging. As we outline in the report, single-packs are costly, while multi-packs would allow licensed producers to create economies of scale. The proposed regulations, however, limit the amount of THC per package to only 10 milligrams, which is significantly lower than illegal alternatives and lower in other U.S. jurisdictions where recreational cannabis is legal”.

The THC cap may act as a barrier to shifting cannabis shoppers from making illicit purchases, where higher THC contents can be found.
