    Not to be a downer, but this is not something you can currently move forward with. I'm not talking obstacles which need to be solved, but actual legal barriers.

    To sell cannabis edibles, or any cannabis products, you will need a licence from the Ontario provincial government. To be eligible for a licence, you will need the following:

    • To live in a town with more than 50,000 people.
    • To live in a town with more than 50,000 people which has agreed to have cannabis stores
    • Have $50,000 line of credit

    You might think that is fine, but right now Ontario have capped the licence to 25 stores because of a shortage of cannabis*.

    Cannabis edibles will also be highly regulated. The reason it did not become legal at the same time as cannabis is because it required further legislation. I imagine to get a licence for this you will have to meet similar, if not stricter, criteria as those written above. Point being it won't be as simple as baking a product to put it on a shelf.

    I don't want to burst a bubble, but this is nothing something you can move forward with legally. But I did mention *a problem which needs solving, which you can look into.

    I didn't know any of that -- so yeah that kinda ruins any aspirations I had there... But it's best I knew that info before I got carried away...
