Newfoundland and Labrador Cannabis Retail Licence

What you need to know

Newfoundland and Labrador have adopted a private retail model, and the sale of recreational cannabis is being conducted through private retailers licensed and regulated by the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation (NLC).

The NLC maintains absolute control of the sale, distribution, delivery, and pricing of cannabis products, and operates Newfoundland and Labrador’s only legal recreational online store Cannabis NL.

There are currently 25 dispensaries in Newfoundland and Labrador, whose locations were chosen based on population and accessibility. Depending on sales, it is expected that additional Newfoundland and Labrador retail locations will open up in the near future. Prospective retailers can only apply to become a Licensed Cannabis Retailer (LCR) when the NLC issues a Request for Proposal for LCR’s based on an increase in consumer demand.

 While it is difficult to break into the Newfoundland and Labrador cannabis retail landscape, it is expected that new opportunities will open up once the recreational cannabis market matures. When that happens, CannDelta will be here to help!
