Nova Scotia’s cannabis retailer has placed its first orders for recreational weed – 3.75 million grams’ worth.

Bret Mitchell, president of the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation, says 78 strains have been ordered from 14 vendors ahead of legalization on Oct. 17.

“We have done our homework and believe the 78 strains we have ordered will provide customers with a varied product assortment,” Mitchell said in a statement. “We have carefully selected the strains and will adjust our inventory based on customer preference.”

The NSLC said it expects to order about 15 million grams in the first year.

The cannabis will be sold in clearly demarcated areas of 11 NSLC stores that also sell alcohol, while one downtown Halifax store will be the province’s lone pot-only retail outlet.
