CANADA: The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) has issued a second product call as part of a continuing effort to expand its wholesale product assortment for non-medical cannabis.
In July, the LDB entered into memorandums of understanding with 32 licensed producers to form its initial wholesale product assortment to cater to the B.C. market directly following legalization of non-medical cannabis on Oct. 17.
“Now that we have finalized our initial product assortment, we’re looking forward to engaging with additional licensed producers that are interested in supplying the B.C. market,” said Blain Lawson, LDB’s general manager and CEO. “There are more and more licensed producers coming online, and we are committed to working with them to ensure our product assortment remains as competitive as possible in order to compete with the illicit market.”
Licensed producers are invited to make submissions for dried cannabis (including pre-rolls), cannabis oils, capsules and seeds that comply with federal requirements, across various product segments.
The product call opens on Aug. 13 and closes on Aug. 31. Product calls will be issued on a regular basis going forward. Submission documents are available to licensed producers HERE.
