Canadian cannabis stores running low on product
Retailers across Canada are struggling with a shortage of all cannabis - but especially the product type known as CBD.
Despite limited medical research, the non-intoxicating extract has been promoted as a natural cure for pain, anxiety and insomnia.
Krystian Wetulani, owner of Vancouver's two City Cannabis stores, says licensed producers didn't anticipate how popular C-B-D would be once cannabis was legalized in October and now they can't scoop up available C-B-D products fast enough.
It's so trendy that Kim Kardashian West recently posted on Instagram about her "C-B-D baby shower'' and invited guests to make C-B-D-infused salt scrubs and body oil.
