The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) says it has partnered with 26 licensed producers for its online retail platform to ensure readiness for October 17 legalization.
The store, which will be province’s sole legal online retailer, said the supply agreements with Health Canada-authorized cannabis producers were competitive.
The OCS says it will sell a variety of products, including dried flower, cannabis oil and cannabis seeds, to customers 19 and older when pot becomes legalized this fall.
“These agreements are a significant milestone that signals our readiness for the legalization of cannabis in Ontario,” says Patrick Ford, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Ontario Cannabis Store.
“These agreements will allow us to safely and securely provide a broad variety of cannabis products to adult customers when online sales begin.”
In the coming months, the OCS will continue to expand its selection of available cannabis products, adding that it’s also working to finalize supply agreements with cannabis accessory suppliers to ensure a diverse selection of accessories are also available for customers.
The OCS says to ensure products are delivered to homes safely and responsibly, it will have a verification system in place.
It says it will also establish a wholesale distribution network to supply pot in private stores.
