Starbuds heads into Ontario

A Kelowna-based cannabis company believes it has positioned itself well for cannabis distribution in Ontario.

Starbuds Canada, a joint venture between Compass Cannabis Clinic and Starbuds U.S., has secured multiple real estate locations in Whitby and Windsor, Ont., and has entered into multiple operational agreements with stakeholders for additional locations in Canada’s most populated province.

“We’re getting an almost overwhelming amount of calls right now from people wanting to participate, and the word in Ontario continues to be that you’ll see an announcement this week,” Starbuds Canada president Dave Martyn told Okanagan Edge. “Those in the know would tell you that it’ll be like B.C., the hybrid where the government will have some locations and private business will have some locations. So that’s our expectation."

“B.C.’s a huge challenge right now,” Martyn said. “Perceptively and for ourselves, this is the least organized province by a lot. The challenge is provincially the rules have been somewhat laid out, but there’s still no firm application process or dates that are in place.”
