Ontario Cannabis Store Trims Prices To Combat Illegal Market
After legalization, Ontario residents could buy cannabis for $8.05 per gram, which is about 8% higher from pre-legalization, according to Narcity. The notable reduction in prices comes from the company’s intention to combat the illegal market.
Cannabis edibles were expected on shelves Monday, but supplies will be limited at the beginning.

“Licensed producers for many months have been looking at Cannabis 2.0 products as a significant opportunity for their companies." David Lobo, OCS Vice-President of Corporate Affairs, told CP24. "So we expect that the supply shortages on these products will not be as long and lingering as they were with the initial dry cannabis and oils that were legalized in October 2018.”
Some of those edibles, such as chocolates and soft chews will be priced at between $7.50 and $16 per package and tea bags should carry a price between $7 and $11 reports CP24.
Cannabis-infused beverages, that should become available in the second half of February should have a price target of $4 to $10 per can, writes CP24.
