What is the difference between cannabis from the OCS and cannabis from an Authorized Cannabis Store?
The OCS provides safe, responsible access to legal recreational cannabis for adults 19 and older. We are Ontario’s sole wholesaler to more than 1,500 Authorized Cannabis Stores. The OCS also operates OCS.ca, the Province’s online cannabis retailer which delivers to consumers in every corner of Ontario.
Cannabis products made available from private dispensaries and other illegal sellers are not regulated by Health Canada and are likely to be untested, meaning that the product may be unsafe for consumption. All cannabis sold by the OCS is sourced directly from producers licensed by Health Canada and must be tested and certified by Health Canada–approved labs.
