US (CT): Medical cannabis patients concerned over product availability

The cannabis industry is booming in Connecticut. “Really strong increase in volume and sales. We anticipated that and prepared as much as we could,” Fine Fettle Dispensary pharmacist Ludwig Rosiclair said.

Adult-use cannabis was legalized in the state on Jan.10, 2023. The Department of Consumer Protection announced sales for recreational and medical cannabis totaled more than $13.3 million between Jan. 10 and Jan. 31, 2023. The adult-use market recorded $5.1 million in sales during the month of January, while the medical cannabis market recorded $8.2 million in sales for the same period, according to DCP.

One of the priorities when hybrid dispensaries opened was making sure medical patients were taken care of first. However, some patients and their families say product availability has changed. “Ever since Jan. 10, people cannot get edibles although those are products that they need,” Maryann Pasquence of Meriden, said. 

“Our selection as of today is 53 options for flowers. Where before recreational happened, we would have like 100,” Patrick said. Dispensaries have received feedback from patients. “We are hoping and expecting there will be more variety to provide to patients as time goes on, but again, we are not in any type of shortage,” Rosiclair said.
