The Ontario Cannabis Store is blaming early order delays on labour action at Canada Post, which shut down the key Toronto mail processing facilities just as the province was preparing to ship out its first wave of orders.
And OCS warned that the cannabis delivery delays may not be solved yet.
The provincial retailer of cannabis and cannabis products said it has received more than 150,000 orders for cannabis since the product was legalized on Wednesday Oct. 17. According to the store, Ontario received more orders for cannabis than all other provinces combined.
“The unbelievably high demand and complications related to rotating strikes at Canada Post, as well as a noted mail backlog at Canada Post, will result in longer-than-expected delivery times for some people,” said the Ontario Cannabis Store in an emailed statement.
