After stocks ran thin, retailers and producers are getting caught up.
In late 2018, Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis (AGLC) declared a nation-wide shortage in cannabis, meaning no new retail licenses would be issued and some products would be left empty on shelves.
On Thursday (Aug.29), Heather Holmen, senior communications with AGLC confirmed that this is no longer an issue.
"Right now in Alberta we have a healthy supply of product and that's certainly the result of increased production from licensed producers across the county after some notable supply challenges over the past year."
According to the AGLC, some licensed producers did not fulfill their commitments after legalization in the fall.
Now, production facilities and inventory levels are caught up for the most part.
"We have 277 retail cannabis locations throughout the province which I think is a good indicator of increased production and being able to provide adequate supply for retailers," Holmen added.
In Fort Saskatchewan, three stores are currently open, with others waiting for final approval.
