Rolling out a massive project like federal cannabis legalization is bound to have a few hiccups along the way. And since Canada legalized weed on October 17, there have already been at least a few setbacks. Most recently, the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) mislabelled the THC content of some of its products.
Consumers making purchases on the site first found the error. In particular, they found a big discrepancy when they tried to purchase a strain called Radiate.
On the OCS website, the strain is listed as having a 24 percent THC level. In reality, however, the particular strain being sold on the OCS site is much closer to 13 percent.
This error holds a lot of weight, particularly because when the OCS website went live, the mislabeled potency of Radiate initially had that strain as the store’s most potent product. But, as it turns out, Radiate is not as potent as the website said it was.
When the problem was pointed out by concerned customers, OCS quickly looked into the matter. Ultimately, it turned out that OCS had not committed the error.
Instead, the producer of Radiate had given OCS the incorrect information by mistake. TerrAscend Canada,
