Ontario, which is Canada’s biggest market for legal pot, will begin consultations with various industry members to pursue a Saskatchewan-like distribution model where licensed cannabis producers will ship directly to retailers, the sources said. An announcement could come as early as next week, the sources added.

Burlington based pharma-technology company Rapid Dose Therapeutics has recently developed a quick dissolve strip with THC.
Olivia Brown of Professional Cannabis Consulting Inc. played a key role in helping Rapid Dose Therapeutics obtain their legal license to produce their game changing quick dissolve THC strips.
The strip technology is also being used to develop separate strips with caffeine and vitamins, and are used as an alternative method of consumption. This will allow users that have issues swallowing or smoking to be able to ingest their medicine with ease.
The THC strips are still not available for the public and are used for research purposes only for the time being, however Rapid Dose Therapeutics looks to change that in the coming years.
