“Everything from our gummies and our chocolates sold out across all three of our stores within five to eight hours”
Saskatoon residents wanting edibles this holiday may have to make their own.
While most retailers have received stock of second-wave cannabis products, the majority sold out within a day of receiving the goods.
“Everything from our CBD gummies and our chocolates sold out across all three of our stores within five to eight hours,” manager of the Prairie Records Broadway Avenue location Shauneen Wuttunee told CKOM.
“We got our [second-wave products] on Thursday and we sent out a text message blast to notify all of our customers that we have the edibles in. It took us an hour to process the order and get them out on the shelves, then by 8:00 or 9:00 that evening they were sold out, both at Stonebridge and Broadway.”
Wuttunee said that her shop had ordered a plethora of new pot-infused products, including chocolates, various flavours of mints, cbd gummies, and vape pens.
If making your own is not an option but you’re desperate for the ultimate tasty stocking stuffer, Tweed reportedly still has a few in stock thanks to a late shipment and some reinforcements. But you’ll have to move fast, as products continue to fly off the shelves as soon as they come in.
“I was supposed to have a truck come in on Friday but I am hoping to get some in today,” said Wuttunee. “It will probably be sold by tomorrow, definitely, for sure.”
Second-wave cannabis products such as liquid-filled vapes, edibles, beverages, topicals, and extracts became legal in Canada on October 17, one year after federal legalization came into force. But due to a mandated 60-day waiting period, they’ve only hit store shelves this past week.
