On March 20, 2020, the LCRB announced Policy Directive 20-04, which allows non-medical cannabis retail store licensees to offer reservations of non-medical cannabis products available in their store to customers via their website or by telephone.

The LCRB writes:

To support the non-medical cannabis retail industry and act upon the feedback of licensees, the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch is now allowing consumers to reserve non-medical cannabis online via the licensee’s website or over the phone for pick up and payment in store.

In response to the unprecedented public health emergency in British Columbia related to COVID-19, this policy is also an effort to promote public health and safety by promoting social distancing guidelines ordered by the provincial health officer and reducing the time consumers spend in non-medical cannabis retail stores.
