US (CT): MMJ patients seeing product shortage after recreational sales become legal

One week since the start of recreational cannabis sales in Connecticut, some medical cannabis patients say they’re already seeing changes to what’s in stock.

“There’s a little bit of concern, obviously, because you do see a couple of changes, nothing too big, which were to be expected because of adult recreational,” said Carmita Melendez. “Second cut is something that used to be readily available, which isn’t anymore, and I think that’s just because of the demand. They don’t have that option anymore.” 

Medical patients have more choices when it comes to the type of product and THC level. Because demand has skyrocketed since recreational sales started, the staff at Fine Fettle believes the growers in Connecticut aren’t able to keep up.

“I think some of our medical patients were used to having a greater variety, and there’s been a little bit of a delay on the grower side in getting that variety out to us,” said Dennis So, the general manager of Fine Fettle in Newington.
