Shelter vs. Shoppers: Where to find Canada's largest selection of medical cannabis – Leafly

Medical cannabis has been legally available to Canadian patients since 2001, and more broadly through licensed retailers since 2013, but it’s still a relatively complicated system to navigate. Unlike other prescription drugs, medical cannabis is not prescribed at all, but rather its use is authorized by a doctor.

Cannabis In Canada Is Soaring And So Should Canopy Growth – Seeking Alpha

When Canada legalized cannabis there were many companies that started and built large grow facilities to accommodate the potential wave of demand. But initial demand was slow. This was mainly due to the fact that dispensaries were heavily regulated and/or controlled entirely by the governmental provinces. Without a mechanism for incentives, governments were slow to push through with opening stores and getting permits passed. This created a significant amount of supply piling up at growers’ facilities. Things are changing. A brief pause during the initial lockdown phase of COVID notwithstanding, there are significant increases in cannabis sales throughout Canada on […]
