In Manitoba, Canada the next wave of cannabis stores has begun to arrive. The new arrival of cannabis retail gives Canada’s regulated marijuana industry a chance to increase market share in Canada’s fifth-most-populous jurisdiction. Manitoba’s government started taking new applications for licensed cannabis stores on June 1, prioritizing applicants without any existing Manitoba stores. According to regulatory figures, adult-use cannabis sales in Manitoba were worth nearly 8.2 million Canadian dollars ($6.2 million) in June and are set to increase with the influx of business. The first of the new wave of stores, The Joint Cannabis Shop, opened in Winnipeg in early August. Ariel Glitter, head of business development for The Joint, said the new store quickly attracted strong interest from consumers.
