The Hobo Recreational Cannabis Store in Ottawa has had to reduce its business hours due to a lack of supply. When the province limits how much pot a store can order to 25 kg per week, and your store makes around 1,400 transactions a day… you’re going to have an issue.
Meanwhile, the cannabis industry is projected to hit a job-creation rate of 110% in just the 3 years from 2017 to 2020(!) No wonder Leafly calls it America’s hidden job boom.
As a result, colleges and universities are opening up more cannabis-centric courses. Let’s hope some of them can help figure out this supply problem for us in Canada.
