It took nearly three months since the legalization of weed across the country, but the City of Vancouver has finally opened up its first legally run pot shop, City Cannabis Co. The grand opening took place on Friday, January 4, giving local pot lovers and tourists a taste of the boutique world of legalized cannabis. As one of three downtown locations currently licensed to sell weed, the shop has remained rather busy keeping up with the hip trend of the developing cities’ east side. While there are many benefits to buying weed from a physical shop, there are even more benefits when you choose to buy weed online.
Your location is key
If you’re a Vancouverite who lives and works within the City, local marijuana dispensaries are incredibly advantageous for you. It’s easy to make a quick stop on your way home if you’re running low on green and it probably won’t be too far out of your way. But, if you live or work in another suburb within Greater Vancouver, the Lower Mainland or even further out into the valley, a visit to a downtown pot shop will most likely sit on your to-do list for quite some time. Put simply, it’s not accessible for everyone, which is why people still buy weed online.
Once you narrow your search to a couple of herb choices, you’re then able to process your order and have it shipped conveniently to your front door. It’s easy, straight-forward and doesn’t involve you re-arranging your day to make a trip into the city.
You have more choices
Although physical dispensaries have a lot of popular strains available, in terms of choice, they can’t compete with the decadent selection that’s available online. Our website has pretty much any Indica, Sativa or Hybrid that your heart desires.
You have access to edibles and topicals
While pot shops are up and running in terms of selling herbs, edibles and topicals still have yet to face their legalization day. That means where the laws in Canada currently stand, there are no legal means of buying these products in physical stores. So, when you buy weed online, you’re able to add a couple of tasty treats or weed-infused body products to your order before proceeding to the checkout.
