First nibble of edibles online

Published on December 19, 2019 by David Wylie

The BC Cannabis Store stocked its first five Cannabis 2.0 products Thursday — all from Aurora.

They include chocolates, mints, cookies and a disposable vaporizer.

Products will soon be available in Okanagan retail stores. We’ll update you on where we find them through our social media channels.

Aside from price, the main concern from cannabis consumers has been whether they’ll have to consume enormous amounts to feel a buzz due to the 10mg limit. However, early reaction is positive.

One Canadian posted to Reddit that he ended up buying more than 40 chocolate bars from Tweed.

“I’m going into this having only tried black market edibles. I wanna see what lab tested edibles feel compared to the black market ones…. I ate two squares and feel extremely stoned. I’m a medical user who smokes daily so 5 mg doing something is really surprising. Feel a strong body/mental high. I want to go to Best Buy to buy a TV but I can’t get up off this chair lol.”

He added that he bought all the chocolates available at Tokyo Smoke in his area, about four dozen.

The province of BC says it will slowly add more products to its stock.

“The addition of edibles, extracts and topicals represents the provincial government’s commitment to providing safe, regulated non-medical cannabis products to B.C. consumers,” says Blain Lawson, LDB’s general manager and CEO.

“A lot of work has gone into procuring these products, and we look forward to working with our suppliers as they continue to introduce new products to market.”
