Untapped Market: Cannabis Retail Stores in Mississauga?

An exciting development in the world of cannabis retail in Ontario is starting to take place with signs pointing to Mississauga – Canada’s 6th biggest city – lifting its ban on cannabis retail stores.

This presents a significant opportunity for current and prospective retailers to establish a presence in a new, unsaturated market. A report is expected to be brought to council on June 9th, which means we could be seeing Mississauga opt-in to cannabis retail store sooner than later and there’s no better time than now to start planning for this untapped market.

Research & Development Licence

AAPS, a premier institute for cannabis industry training and research, announced that it received its second Research & Development licence from Health Canada at its new location at 885 Sheppard Avenue West.

This new licence allows AAPS to conduct product formulation and sensory testing for cannabis topicals in its new R&D laboratory and strengthens AAPS’ goal of helping companies expand their product offerings and innovative cannabis topical formulations for an emerging market.

Utilizing its expertise in regulatory compliance, quality assurance, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and food science, AAPS looks forward to assisting companies in their journey to get cannabis topical products to market quickly and efficiently.

This licence is in addition to the existing Health Canada Research and Development licence, further expanding its abilities to provide hands-on training related to analytical testing methods for cannabis. Through this licence amendment, AAPS can now educate students on analytical testing for cannabinoids beyond THC and CBD, as well as terpenes, for any cannabis product format.
