Issuance of new store authorizations will be resumed by the cannabis regulator of Ontario. The authorizations will be issued only if the stores are complete, meet all regulatory requirements, and do not, in any way, violate any of the province’s emergency order restrictions (according to the revised notice).
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a global lockdown and economic shutdown. This led to the halt of operations of a significant number of businesses and has also affected the cannabis industry greatly.
Previously, new Retail Store Authorizations (RSA) were paused by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), in early April. This was due to the emergency measures that the province had ordered to take, to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, and to reduce the spread of the contagious virus.
A revised notice was published on its website, soon after the issuance of the authorization of the first store. In the revised notice, the AGCO clarified that the completion of stores was necessary in compliance with the emergency order of Ontario, where noncritical construction work was paused.
According to the AGCO, about a dozen stores had completed construction and hence had fulfilled the eligibility process, before the issuance of the emergency order.
According to a spokesman’s statement to Marijuana Business Daily, the issuance of RSAs at the same rate as before is expected by the AGCO that is approximately 5 (per) week and 20 per month. The spokesman added that a few applicants already had a ready-store when they first submitted their application. The spokesman continued that they will be in a position to authorize them as well if the stores were to complete the public notice without issue, and the building process is complete already, and the stores are ready to go.
The public notice period continues for the applicant. The key to the maintenance of the growth of Canada’s cannabis industry is the openings of new cannabis stores. The five dozen cannabis stores in Ontario have put the province far behind from other provinces such as Alberta and British Columbia. Furthermore, these two provinces are the provincial leaders in cannabis retail. Alberta has opened 181 cannabis stores while British Columbia has opened 446 cannabis stores.
However, despite the difference, sales of Ontario’s adult-use cannabis rose 3% in February to 38 million Canadian dollars ($27 million), leading Canada.
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) said in their first post that the preparation of the stores of many retailers was delayed due to the restrictions that were imposed by the emergency order of the province to fight the COVID-19, which also included the pause to construction work. The post also included that the issuance of RSAs to those stores that have successfully met all regulatory requirements will be resumed by the AGCO.
For businesses seeking to open a licensed cannabis store in Ontario, the first step would be to essentially apply for a Retail Operator License (ROL). This will also determine that the eligibility criteria are met by the store operators.
The next step for the businesses would be to apply for Retail Store Authorization (RSA). The RSA applications, deal with the particulars of a physical cannabis store, that involves the location, layout, and security plans.
About early April, nearly 900 Retail Operator License (ROL) applications were received by the cannabis regulator of Ontario, for cannabis stores, since it opened up the process to all new businesses on January 6th, 2020.
Previously, the closing of private cannabis stores for two weeks was ordered by Ontario, as of April 4, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, soon after, at least a 14-day window was given to the cannabis stores to serve customers through curbside pickups and home delivery.

Good news for Sciatica patients: CBD oil relieves the pain
The recent studies on CBD oil have unfolded its utility in various fields of medicine. Researches on the effects of CBD oil on sciatica patients show that they can prove to be very useful in its treatment. The results have shown that the oil can work wonders to alleviate the Sciatica pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a severe pain caused by disruption in the sciatica nerve. Anything that disturbs the nerve results in extreme and sometimes, unbearable pain.
Sciatica is a nerve that starts at the lower back and extends through the hips and legs to the toes. It sends messages from the brain to the legs via spinal cord. Since, it is a long nerve, patients usually complain of the pain at the lower back, hips, legs and heels.
A compression on the Sciatica causes this severe pain. The major causes of compression are a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine.
What is CBD oil
CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound that is derived from the Marijuana plant. It relieves the pain without causing any psychoactive or mind-altering effects. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD powder from the marijuana plant. Coconut or olive oil is mixed in it for better application.
The recent researches on CBD oil have revealed its anti-seizure, neuroprotective and pain relieving properties. Due to its wondrous effects on human body, many celebrities advocate for CBD.
Utility of CBD oil for Sciatica patients
CBD oil works by increasing the number of pain modulators that stimulate a response to the pain. Our mind has cannabinoid receptors that modulate the pathways that stimulate a response to the pain and negative emotions.
As sciatica pain arises, the CBD oil applied on the respective part works to reach the brain in order to stimulate a faster response to the pain.
While the Sciatica is a very painful condition, it is mostly treatable with medicines. However, most pain relievers have side effects that cause harm in the long run. In contrast, CBD oil works naturally to enhance the receptors with minimum side effects.
Best CBD oil to relieve Sciatica
Every person’s reaction to different types of CBD oil varies from the other. One cannot say with surety, since what works for some might not work for the others. This is primarily because every person has a different set of genetics, general health and tolerance.
Natural and organic remedies take time to show their reaction. While CBD takes some time to relieve the pain, it is undoubtedly one of the harmless ways to do so.
CBD oil works best when used with the consultation of a doctor. Before buying, one should make sure that the oil contains laboratory verified ingredients.
