Canadian edibles facing lag in sales

New data shows edibles in the Canadian cannabis market are not selling as well as producers would like.

In a report, Marijuana Business Daily indicates that provincial distributors and retailers had nearly 10 million units of various products in stock in August. Meanwhile, sales for the same month reached just 1.42 million products. From these edible products, the much-touted cannabis drinks are also included.

“August sales growth of edibles cannabis products was the lowest since the products started hitting the market in late 2019,” the report states.
