Quebec’s government-run cannabis shops will be open seven days a week, beginning on Monday, May 20.
It seems the cannaBUSINESS is back on track as the SQDC announced that an “improvement of supplies” has lead to the increased hours.
- Aurora declares over $100M in Q3 losses while cannabis cost-per-gram drops 6%
- Denver, Colorado just voted to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms
- This is how THC interacts with the brain (and makes you want snacks)
- People are mistaking this Montreal florist for a cannabis shop
In October, shortly after cannabis was legalized across the country, the SQDC claimed to be having supply problems, which led the shops to open only from Thursday to Sunday.
According to a social media post from the Société québécoise du cannabis, the shops are now boasting “40 to 60 products” that are available to cannabis consumers, both in store and online.

The SQDC’s downtown Montreal branch, located on Ste. Catherine Street, will be open on Wednesdays from 10 am to 9 pm due to a constant flow of buyers.
Earlier this month, the SQDC announced that this coming fall, three new shops will open in Chicoutimi, Sherbrooke and Châteauguay with plans to open 43 total shops across the province by March 2020.
