Where can you buy cannabis in Saskatchewan?
Saskatchewan’s provincial regulatory agency expects as many as 17 stores to be ready and open as of October 17, 2018, with a total approval of 51 private-run cannabis retail store applications.
Online sales of cannabis products will be undertaken by the private stores authorized to sell cannabis to those 19+.

What can you grow?
You can grow your own cannabis strains at home for personal use in Saskatchewan.

- Landlords may limit or ban growing
What’s the tax rate?
Canada’s federal government has proposed a cannabis excise tax across each province/territory of 10 per cent of the product price, or $1 per gram, whichever is higher. The federal government will hand over 75% of excise tax revenue to provinces for the first two years after legalization.
Producers will be charged 6.45% additional tax. Sales tax rates of 5-15% may be applied by each individual province in addition to the federal excise tax. (Further details are forthcoming.)
What happens to medical cannabis?
Nothing. Canada’s medical cannabis system remains exactly as it was prior to October 17, 2018.
