Canadian stockpiles of cannabis in dried and oil kind continued to climb to record levels in March, but retailers nationwide struggled to sustain constant inventory of in-demand solutions.

Completed inventory of dried marijuana held by federal license holders, provincial distributors and retailers hit a record 30,800 kilograms (67,902 pounds) in March, up substantially from the 23,200 kilograms stocked the preceding month, according to Wellness Canada information.

Completed inventory is stock that is packaged, labeled and prepared for sale.

Sale-prepared inventory of cannabis oil rose slightly, from 59,500 liters (15,718 gallons) in February to 62,100 liters in March.

Separate information from Statistics Canada showed that sales of adult-use marijuana enjoyed a bump in March, increasing to 60 million Canadian dollars ($44.five million) from CA$51 million the preceding month.

Having said that, some retailers continued to struggle to stock constant inventory of the varieties of cannabis solutions sought by shoppers.

Hobo Recreational Cannabis Shop in Ottawa, for instance, slashed its hours because of shortages.

The Wellness Canada information also offered a glimpse into the initial handful of months of seeds and clones sales for adult- use.

Sales of nonmedical cannabis clones began at 50 in December 2018, just before falling off in January (23), February (17) and March (17).

Seed sales saw steady development, almost doubling from four,850 in February to eight,562 in March.
