Just four days after the Province of Ontario announced that it had signed supply agreements with 26 federally licensed producers, the Province of Nova Scotia announced today that it has placed its first purchase orders for recreational cannabis with 14 different licensed producers, along with an order from one cannabis accessory company.
Nova Scotia ordered 78 different strains which it believes will provide its customers with a varied product assortment.
The first round of orders are intended to secure 3.75 million grams with the government anticipating that it will order approximately 15 million grams in the first year.
In total, the government will initially carry 282 cannabis products and 21 different accessory products. Recreational cannabis products will come in five formats: flower, seeds, pre-rolls, oil and gel caps.
The companies selected are listed below.
Congratulations to everyone.
