It’s the final countdown until the legalization of marijuana across Canada and to show off their preparedness, the provincial government gave the media a sneak peek at the official Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) website where weed will be sold starting Oct. 17.
When the website goes live at 12:01 a.m., customers will first see a simple black and white front page that asks for your age. Once the customer proves they are 19 years of age or older, the main page will appear with the following four options:
Cannabis: Where customers can filter their search using categories such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) percentage, CBD (cannabidiol) taste, plant types and price (taxes included).
Accessories: Products customers will need to consume cannabis such as vapour, papers and pipes.
Learn: This page takes the customers to long format editorial content on cannabis, such as “How Cannabis Works,” “Facts about Cannabis Consumption”, “How to Choose Cannabis Products” and “What’s Legal?”
FAQ: Where customers will find simple answers to popular cannabis-oriented questions, as well as health and safety information.
