It looks like Canadian officials are tired of being embarrassed about running out of weed. You may remember back on October 17th of 2018 when Canada legalized adult use recreational cannabis across the country that some dispensaries ran out of weed on opening day. They were out of weed for almost a week. Not only do Canadians love weed, they LOVE weed!
Headlines since then have taunted the Canadian government. They have done so by pointing out over and over how they don’t have enough cannabis to meet the demand. Cannabis dispensary owners have to have extra people stationed at computers monitoring the provincial website where they have access to cannabis. The moment product comes in it’s scooped up meaning there are slim pickings when it comes to products for cannabis businesses.
6 New Processors Approved by Health Canada
In an effort to quit running out of weed Health Canada has added six brand new shiny licensed cannabis processors to the list allowed by Health Canada. This makes the total number of licenses issued for sellers, processors, and cultivators in Canada to 140. I’m not sure about you, but personally, the name of some of these companies frightens me.
Anyone Else Scared of What’s to Come?
I’ve grown up in the cannabis community and culture for 40 years. Personally, I would never think about buying my weed from Toronto Research Chemicals Inc or Avante RX Analytics Inc. These are two companies along with Hollyweed Manufacturing & Extracts Inc, SynFine Research Limited, Zenalytic Laboratories, and Dosecann LD Inc that make the six companies approved by Health Canada to receive licenses as cannabis processors.
I’m not so sure about the rest of the world but to me they sound like companies that develop things in Terminator movies. It’s completely understandable how Canada’s craft cannabis community is so pissed off. Especially seeing how they were destroyed and replaced by laboratories and analytic companies. Canada is trying to eliminate the black market by legalizing cannabis on a recreational scale. Unfortunately they seem to have missed out on a significant aspect of the cannabis community and culture.
The Man’s Plan May Destroy Cannabis as We Know It
That aspect is what we’ve called The Man for decades now. The man has a plan, and that plan is to ruin cannabis. That plan seems to be working as more laboratories, and chemical research companies are receiving licenses for processing.
Let’s wait and see how many more recalls happen in the Cannabis sector in 2019 for Canada. Perhaps they would have been better off leaving cannabis cultivation to the pros. Pros such as the many craft cannabis producers that are being denied entry into the sector.
