The first locally produced recreational cannabis is available from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp.
The SKOSHA brand is produced by Breathing Green Solutions in Wentworth.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers a local product option,” said Dave DiPersio, senior vice-president and chief services officer, in a news release Wednesday.
“The NSLC team designed the listing process to be reactive to customer demand and to be able to accommodate local producers who are approved to come to market.”
SKOSHA will be available for purchase online and at NSLC stores in Amherst, New Glasgow, Truro and at the NSLC Cannabis store on Clyde Street in Halifax.
Initially, NSLC received a shipment of SKOSHA Nor’Easter, described as a sativa-dominant hybrid THC strain, in a 3.5-gram size.
“We hope to make additional SKOSHA products available soon,” DiPersio said.
Joe Sanford, operations manager and co-founder at Breathing Green Solutions, said SKOSHA was five years in the making.
“Nova Scotians love local, and now they’ll be able to enjoy local handcrafted cannabis, too,” he said in the release.
