Per the Gazette, the government-run SQDC is now stocking cannabis tea, with three varieties available: a lavender-camomile, ginger-peach green tea, and vanilla rooibos (however, the latter two are already listed as out of stock online).
Over a year after recreational cannabis was legalized in Canada, edible products are finally for sale in Quebec — or to be more accurate, drinkable products.
CBD is everywhere. But does it work?
Quebec has the strictest rules on edibles in the country — in 2019, Francois Legault’s government took a “won’t somebody think of the children?” approach, banning the sale of edibles that could appeal to those below the legal age of 21, such as brownies, candy, or basically anything sweet (although there’s nothing stopping you from making these at home). Such products are all sold in Ontario, B.C., and other provinces.
Sorry, stoners: the teas are all cannabidiol (CBD) based, with minimal THC levels, so while they may have a relaxing effect, they won’t get you high. They’re sold as tea bags, not pre-prepared, canned drinks.

Does CBD oil relieve pain?
The link discovered between the endocannabinoid system and pain has sparked a growing body of research in the potential analgesic properties of CBD. Some early studies have yielded some promising findings that seem to prove CBD’s capacity for inhibiting inflammatory and neuropathic pain. However, a lot more research is needed to build on this exciting discovery.
What is CBD?
CBD is known to interact with the bodyâ€™s endocannabinoid system. We do not yet know a great deal about the endocannabinoid system, research has shown that it plays a role in regulating a range of bodily functions, including sleep, appetite and, to a certain extent, sensations of pain.
