New Cannabis Products Available January 16, 2020

January 15, 2020 (TORONTO) – Sales of new legal cannabis products such as edibles, extracts and topicals will launch on OCS.ca after 9:00am on January 16, 2020. In order to add the new categories and products, OCS.ca will be unavailable between 12:01 and 9:00am.

Customers can expect to find more than 70 new tested, Health Canada-regulated products, including chocolates, cookies, soft chews, mints, tea, and vapes. Topicals, concentrates and beverages are expected to arrive later in the months ahead.

“Offering new products that customers are excited about will make the Ontario Cannabis Store even more effective in its efforts to take on the illegal market,” says Cal Bricker, President and CEO of the OCS. “We know that the retail store network launch of these products was tremendously successful and we’re now offering the same products to our e-commerce customers.”

The OCS expects the variety and availability of these products to improve as licensed producers grow their manufacturing capacity and bring new products to market.

Legal Recreational Cannabis

Under Health Canada’s regulations, licensed producers must have all products tested for harmful and banned substances, and each regulated product requires a Certificate of Analysis (COA) and a Statement of Attestation (SOA) traceable to the product lot number. These regulations also require legal cannabis products be sold in child-resistant packaging and to be packaged in ways that do not appeal to children and youth.
