All About Retail

The focus remains on cannabis retail expansion. From the huge number of Ontario Retail Operator Licenses issued (800+) to the fact producers are cutting prices of their cannabis to (try and) chip into the illicit market. Oh, and one retailer is suing a producer for $110 million.

And if that wasn’t enough for one week, a would-be opposition leader is not quite on board with legalization.

Read on…

Becoming a cannabis retailer isn’t (always) all that it cracked up to be. The CBC took a look at the post-lottery world

But it is about to get a whole lot more competitive, as the Province of Ontario has issues 800+ Retailer Operator Licenses

If retailers – both private and public have learned one thing since legalization – it is (probably) this (from CBC): Who knew? Lower prices trigger higher sales at Cannabis NB

As if answering that call, CNBC fills us in on Canadian producers’ strategy: Cannabis producers in Canada are now offering ‘value brands’ to compete with cheaper illegal market

As well, David Brown, formerly of Health Canada – wrote this piece – and posted on Business of Cannabis – about new products hitting the shelves in British Columbia. (Hint: SEEDS!)

Speaking of retailers… one such retailer is suing Tilray for $110 million for breach of contract. BNN takes a look

And while the industry and provinces aim to find their footing – it is clear Canadian love their cannabis. Cannabis added $7.4 billion to the Canadian GDP in August last year.

Finally, to politics – would-be Progressive Conservative leader does not agree with legalization
