Recreational cannabis will be available for purchase online in Ontario via the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) beginning on Wednesday, October 17. The OCS launched a “learning website” on Thursday, which details what we be available and how prospective customers can obtain product, as well as offering some education on cannabis.
When cannabis becomes legal, Canadians will able to purchase dried flower products, pre-rolled joints, soft-gel capsules (casuals), and oils. Unfortunately, it’s going to be difficult-to-impossible to get legal products in your hand on October 17.

The OCS is teaming up with Canada Post for delivery, which will cost a flat-fee of $5. Products will arrive in “child-resistant, tamper-evident containers and are received directly from licensed producers.” Anyone who appears under the age of 25 will have to produce a valid Ontario ID to claim their products.
The Ontario government is expected to allow private retail stores to open in April of 2019, which will be heavily-regulated.
