Wondering where to purchase recreational cannabis in Nova Scotia?

As of October 17, 2018, Canada took the monumental step of legalizing recreational cannabis nationwide. It is only the second country and first major economy to do so. Go Canada! Recreational pot users are now able to legally purchase recreational cannabis at 12 different Nova Scotia Liquor Commission stores across the province.

They are: the Amherst Mall, Antigonish, Dufferin St. in Bridgewater, Portland Street in Dartmouth, Joseph Howe Drive and Clyde Street in Halifax, Downsview Plaza in Lower Sackville, New Minas, Sydney River, Court Street in Truro, Yarmouth and East Side New Glasgow.  All except the Clyde Street store will have retail cannabis sold at a store within the store. The Clyde Street location is the only stand-alone store and will feature the most robust assortment of cannabis and cannabis accessories.

Nova Scotians far prefer brick and mortar locations with 94% of sales at physical locations. It makes perfect sense there are considering more storefront locations.

Cannabis is regulated by each province or territory, so rules vary across the country. For everything you need to know about cannabis in Nova Scotia, see our guide: Everything you need to know about cannabis in Nova Scotia.
