A guide to Canada's legal cannabis

A guide to Canada's legal cannabis

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that gives users their high, while CBD or cannabinol is another, non-psychoactive ingredient.

It said Ottawa should amend its weed legislation should cannabis consumption increase as a result of legalisation.

Across the square, a group of pro-pot advocates also shared an anti-Big-Cannabis message from a makeshift booth selling marijuana and displaying plants. Originally from Boston, but now living in Montreal, MacDonald said he hoped the U.S. would follow Canada's lead and legalise recreational weed.

Canadian provinces and municipalities have been preparing for months for the end of cannabis prohibition. "Their product is showcased in the store, they're here to support growth".

Pre-rolled joints are also available for purchase.

"We're certainly not going to get into a price war with the illegal market by any stretch", Harriman said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said Canada is ready to give up an old system that did not protect young people or communities from organized criminal involvement in the marijuana trade.

It's still unclear if legalisation will undercut the black market.

In Manitoba, security guards were directing traffic in the parking lot at Delta 9's south Winnipeg store, where some eager customers had been lined up since Tuesday evening. Prete said the thing she's most looking forward to about legalization is the experience of buying pot just like any other product.

Canopy said it has 100,000 more units of cannabis to send to distributors across the country in the next week, with shipments planned each business day through at least Monday. "It's going to be a bong show".

"They stayed up all night working to fulfil the orders and I'm very, very proud of them", he said of those working on the web sales.

The top 10 stocks with the biggest gains from their yearly lows include some well-known companies such Tilray Inc. and Canopy Growth Corp. - the two biggest pot producers by value - and MadMen Enterprises, which just bought medical pot firm PharmaCann for US$682 million. He claims that visits to his online dispensaries soared in the lead-up to legalization, on fears that unlicensed marijuana businesses would be shut down under the new legal cannabis regime.

"The last time Canada was this far ahead in anything, Alexander Graham Bell made a phone call", said Linton, whose company recently received an investment of $4 billion from Constellation Brands, whose holdings include Corona beer and Robert Mondavi wines.

Still, the rollout of legal cannabis sales isn't expected to be totally smooth.

There are still details to be anticipated with the news, as analysts predict a shortage in recreational marijuana this first year with production and licensing rising to meet the demand.

Only a handful of retail locations were up and running on October 17, including just one store in British Columbia and none in Ontario, Canada's most populous province where only online sales will be allowed.

"We're the forerunners of a cannabis store that's run and looked after by the province of British Columbia, to set an example of how cannabis can be fit in to our society", Jones says. "After that no one really knows".
