Cannabis extract prices vary ‘wildly’ between provincially run stores

Inconsistencies could undermine governments’ goal of wiping out illegal market, expert says

A CBC News analysis has revealed the price of cannabis extracts varies widely across Canada, with the same product sometimes costing two to three times more in one provincially run online store than another.

The inconsistencies, experts say, could undermine efforts to wipe out the country’s illegal market.

The analysis looked at the price of 61 cannabis capsules, sprays and oils available in Ontario’s provincially run online retailer in December 2019.

Those products were then matched with their counterparts from the online provincial retailers in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador — provinces where the government is an official distributor and runs an online mail-order site.
