Canada has now issued 154 cannabis licences

The Government of Canada recently announced it has now issued 154 cannabis licenses.

“This week, we approved 1 new licence holder, 2 additional licences for an existing licence holder, and 4 site expansions,” the government tweeted on March 1. “Vida Cannabis in NS is a newly licensed cannabis cultivator. PhyeinMed in BC can now process cannabis and sell cannabis for medical purposes.”

The government says the recent approvals will “add more than 114,000 m2 of capacity to Canada’s growing cannabis industry.”

This comes amid product shortages in the country, with some experts predicting the shortage will drag out for years.
