New legal cannabis products coming to Nunavut

Edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals will be available by mid-December “at the earliest”

By Jane George

A new wave of cannibis products—including edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topicals—are legal as of today.

But, due to Health Canada’s approval process, these new cannabis products will not be available until mid-December at the earliest, a public service announcement from the Government of Nunavut said.

The Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission said the new products will be able to be bought in the territory from these licensed vendors:

the Tweed store, owned by Canopy Growth Corp. of Smith’s Falls, Ont.

Vertical Cannabis, owned by AgMedica Bioscience Inc. of Chatham, Ont.

The edible cannabis, cannabis extracts and cannabis topical products do not yet appear on these companies’ websites.

The GN has said it has plans to license the in-person retail sale of cannabis sometime in the future, but the Department of Finance is still working out regulations that would govern how that would work.

The sale and possession of cannabis products has been legal in Canada since Oct. 17, 2018.

But that’s only for products grown by government-licensed producers and sold by government-licensed retailers.

All other forms of cannabis produced outside the licensing system are illegal.

    one year later and legal cannabis sales have put up sales of about 2 billion dollars, much lower than the anticipated government models with 5-7 billion annually still going to illegal pot dealers. cbc news stat.

      That’s because there are no local sales outlets, they should have been set up in every community a year ago if anyone was trying to curb the black market. Otherwise the illegal dealers will always be there.

        A lot of the orders majority of people order online are from black market because legal websites stuff are shitty and expensive. Us potheads know what’s good and what’s bad. If they want to start making more money then consider opening one in BC

      It’s because of their ridiculous prices that nobody wants to pay, although a quick glance now shows that they may be adjusting. Originally, using the Ontario store as an example as Nunavut is such a small market anyway, the lowest prices were around $9.50-$13 per gram. I have no problem with that, if you’re buying one gram, as the black market price for a gram is $10. However, the “street” prices reduce drastically with volume, so that if you’re buying a half-ounce (14 grams), you’re generally only paying $80 ($5.70/gram), and if you’re buying an ounce you’re going to pay even less (sometimes like $4.30/gram) . It didn’t work that way on OCS, even if you bought an ounce, you were still paying over $9/g.
      .
      But looking at it now, the cheapest bud on OCS is $19.55 for a 3.5g (the infamous “half-quarter”). That’s actually pretty reasonable, so I expect in time there will be greater take-up.

    The price of legal cannabis has been coming down since legalization and is likely to decrease quite a bit over the next year as the industry shakes out. For example Hexo has announced “bulk” pricing for 28 grams as low as $4.49 per gram which is 50% lower than the average legal price and 20% lower than the average black market price.
    .
    As more products enter the market it’s apparent that pot prices, especially for flower will decrease. This will help increase the amount of legal weed sold versus black market weed. A win-win as consumers will have more variety at a lower cost, and more tax revenue collected.
