Recreational Cannabis Stores in Nova Scotia

Looking for an open cannabis store on Oct. 17, Canada’s Legalization Day? We’re here to help.

Cannabis is regulated by each province or territory, so rules vary across the country. For a full FAQ about Nova Scotia’s cannabis rules, see our guide: Legal Cannabis in Nova Scotia: What You Should Know.Retail cannabis sales will be handled by the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC), which is expected to open nine stores throughout the province.

The crown corporation will launch its online retail site,, on Oct. 17. Here’s the catch: You can’t enter the web site without a special access code. And that code can only be obtained by showing up in person at any NSLC store (starting Oct. 17), presenting a valid ID confirming that you’re 19 or older, and accepting a special card. There is no cost to obtain the card.
