While Cannabis 2.0 categories like edibles, extracts and topicals have been legalized in Canada since October 17, 2019, many Ontarians have noticed that these products have been slow to hit legal retail shelves and OCS.ca
This is due to the regulatory timelines and approval processes put in place by Health Canada to ensure new cannabis products are safe for consumption. In order to legally ship and sell products, licensed producers must first apply for an amended license, submit products for a 60-day review period, and finally pass quality assurance standards. When products meet these criteria, they may be introduced to the market.

As different producers are at varying stages of the licensing process outlined above, products will see a staggered release throughout the first few months of the year.
