The finishing touches are being put on one of Ontario’s first legal pot shops in the heart of downtown Kingston.
Spiritleaf is set to open its doors to the public on April 1, a day that could not come fast enough for store owner Daniel Telio.
“This has been a hectic process, but I’m excited to see it all come together,” he said.
In January, Telio was one of five cannabis lottery winners in the east region, according to the AGCO’s official results.
After receiving the licence, Telio quickly teamed up with Calgary-based cannabis company Spiritleaf. The two parties agreed that the design of the store should be modern and sleek rather than reminiscent of a stereotypical pot shop with cannabis leaves littered throughout.
