Alberta is crushing retail cannabis.

They’re not willing to guarantee supplies will continue to proliferate, but the AGLC did note their online offerings have increased to 375 products from 65 last November.

Meanwhile, Fire & Flower General Merchandise Manager Rob Cherry notes, “Each licence was allocated approximately eight times more in dry flower than they were back in April, which are the products in most demand.”

Spiritleaf Business Development Director Cecil Horwitz reported, “We’re essentially opening two to four stores a (month) right now. We’re really rolling.”
