Cannabis Cafe Comes: Canada’s Coffee Chainer Associates With Marijuana Company

The Second Cup is a Canadian coffee chain retailer, and the company is planning to work with the Cannabis company to develop a nationwide recreational cannabis sales network, starting with the western Canadian region and gradually moving eastwards to other provinces.

The Second Cup recently announced that it is partnering with National Access Cannabis Corp. (NAC).

The joint statement issued by The Second Cup and NAC stated that they are preparing to use The Second Cup’s stores across Canada, that is, some cafes will also sell marijuana in the future.

The price of the two companies rose

After the news came out, the stock price of the two companies immediately rose, the Second Cu p’s stock price rose about 30%, and NAC’s stock price rose about 10%.

This summer, the federal government of Canada will announce the legalization of recreational marijuana, but the specific operational issues related to the sale of cannabis are the responsibility of the provincial governments themselves.

Many provinces, particularly Ontario, have opted for more government control, but some provinces, including British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba, are prepared to allow some private retailers to sell marijuana. Help them to obtain medical cannabis use rights and prescriptions.

Cannabis cafe

Robert Carter, executive director of food services at NPD Group, a market research company, said that he believes there is potential for such partnerships as The Second Cup and NAC.
He told CBC that the idea of a cannabis cafe could become an emerging business model.
