Why buy legally?

Cannabis has been legalized to protect public health and safety. One way to reach this goal is to get users to shift from the illegal to the legal market. 

Buying cannabis at the Société québécoise du cannabis (SQDC) means you : 

  • know the THC and CBD levels in products,

  • know product quality and purity are controlled (no mould or banned pesticides),  

  • can stay clear of the illegal market and its related risks,

  • are sure the profits are invested in prevention,

  • help fund independent research. 

The sales outlets where you can legally purchase non therapeutic cannabis can be found on the SQDC Website. You will also find the official online platform.
