British Columbia has signed agreements with licensed marijuana producers to supply recreational pot after legalization this fall – and the province boasts that it will feature an “exclusive and competitive” assortment of weed products.
The Liquor Distribution Branch will be the only wholesaler of cannabis in the province – and it has entered into memorandums of understanding with 31 producers – that responded to its request for information process.
The branch says the agreements ensure an array of products featuring more than 150 strains – ranging in quality from value-oriented to ultra-premium weed – sold at competitive prices.
It says it has also secured a range of marijuana accessories for retail sale in BC Cannabis Stores – and licensed private retailers will be able to access the product line through the branch’s online sales portal.
The branch says it expects to issue a call for more producers shortly after legalization – and will continually expand its purchasing as demand increases.
