Edibles Countdown DAY 7: Alberta will have to wait until mid-January for Cannabis 2.0 products

Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis said it cannot make any promises about how many products will be available in the new year

Canada’s top per-capita cannabis seller won’t be getting a head start on selling cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals.

Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) reports that Alberta will have to wait until the new year before selling Cannabis 2.0 products.

But, the delay wasn’t a surprise.

“It’s the quickest timeline for AGLC to order and receive product from LPs (licensed producers) after the earliest day provinces can legally order from LPs (Dec. 16), to list in inventory for retailers to order and then ship out to stores across the province,” AGLC spokesperson Heather Holmen told The GrowthOp.

New classes of cannabis were added to Schedule 4 of the Cannabis Act on Oct. 17, 2019. That became the earliest date that licensed processors could provide the requisite 60-day notice to Health Canada for any products in the new classes they are intending to sell.

As such, Dec. 16, 2019, is the earliest date that notified products in the new classes could be made available for sale to authorized distributors and sellers in provinces and territories.
