Ontario Cannabis Store runs out of edibles just hours after online sales began

The Ontario Cannabis Store appeared almost entirely sold out of its new edible products fewer than seven hours after they went on sale.

A search of the site Thursday afternoon found that chocolates, confectionery and baked goods were all listed as out of stock.

“The products you’re shopping for are currently sold out, as initial supply is very limited. Check back soon to see if these products have been restocked,” the website told customers.

It was unclear whether beverages were still in stock, as the product options would not load.

Cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals first became available online this morning.

The province’s pot distributor said 70 new items tested by Health Canada could be purchased online as of 9 a.m. local time.

CBC Toronto reached out to the OCS for comment but did not immediately hear back. 

Among the new products are cannabis-infused chocolates, cookies, soft chews, mints, tea and vapes.

These products were made available in physical Ontario cannabis stores earlier this month.

Cannabis topicals, concentrates and beverages are expected to arrive in stores in future months as licensed producers ramp up their manufacturing capacity and introduce new products to the market.

OCS President Cal Bricker says he is hoping the expansion of products will help combat sales of cannabis through the underground market.
