B.C. government launches online cannabis sales with some strains already sold out


The B.C. government has launched its website for legal online cannabis sales.

Online sales officially began after the stroke of midnight on Wednesday with 85 strains and dozens of other accessories on offer.

Early Wednesday, however, some strains, such as Mango Kush and Campfire, appeared to be unavailable because they were sold out.

Every order from B.C.’s legal online store will come with a $10 shipping fee.
