Cannabis Update: Who sold first and who sold out in Atlantic Canada

Posted on October 22, 2018 | Gabby Peyton | 0 Comments

As if you didn’t know already, the sale of cannabis became legal last week and with that, Atlantic Canadian retailers opened their doors for business. Despite reports of stores selling out across the four provinces, here’s where you can buy cannabis once they restock.

Newfoundland and Labrador
There are more than 20 different places to buy weed in Newfoundland from a variety of private (regulated) retailers, as well as online. Canada’s first cannabis purchase was made in the country’s most easterly province at 12:01am local time in front of an array of media at Tweed’s Water Street location in St. John’s. The days following October 17 also saw the shut down of several illegally operating cannabis retailers in the province as the NLC scrambles to restock depleted stock.

New Brunswick
The 20 stores in New Brunswick are operated by Cannabis NB, a subsidiary of the liquor commision, and like the other three provinces, they offer online shopping. Many consumers in the province were upset with the opening day prices, which are on par with illegal dealers — the other three provinces have products below black market value. Cannabis NB declined to offer first day revenue numbers.
