The latest generation of cannabis products is being shipped to Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) stores for legal sale in Ontario on Monday.

The OCS is releasing 59 new products, including edibles, beverages, lotions and concentrates.

But when will they be available on store shelves?

According to the team at Tokyo Smoke, they will receive a list of available OCS products on Monday and will then place an order. The products will then be on store shelves later in the week.

“Tokyo Smoke 333 Yonge will have the first wave of Cannabis 2.0 products available in store beginning Wednesday, January 8th,” the store said in a statement. “The Tokyo Smoke team is excited to educate guests on these new formats, including edibles, beverages, vapes and topicals.”

If you don’t feel comfortable going to a store or aren’t close to one, the new products will go on sale at the OCS website on Jan. 16.

However, the OCS, Ontario’s pot distributor, warns that supplies are tight and some of the products could sell out quickly.

It says it will work to replenish supplies quickly and hopes to roll out more products in the coming months.

Prices for legally sold edibles will range from $7 to $14, beverages are set to cost between $4 and $10, and vapes will be priced anywhere from $25 to $125.

Correction: This is a corrected story. A previous version said the products would be available for sale at stores across Ontario on Monday
