Everything You Need to Know About Buying Cannabis Online
How are you buying your weed? Since the legalization of cannabis in Canada back in 2018, there are more ways and strains available than ever when purchasing cannabis and cannabis products. Depending on where you live, you may have access to multiple storefronts that are eclectic and fun to visit – or you may not have any.
If you don’t have close access to a physical cannabis store where you can touch and smell your bud before you buy it, finding a cannabis store online that suits your specific needs and tastes can make your next toke a lot easier and simpler – especially with COVID-19 restrictions limiting our ability and need to leave the house. As with any online purchase though, the avid stoner may be concerned about quality and count when it comes to buying cannabis online, making it hard to know where to find the best value.
From where to buy, to what to buy, here’s what you need to know to elevate your online cannabis store experience, and your next high.
Are There Restrictions To Buying Weed Online?
When purchasing weed through an online cannabis store, there are a few things to consider to avoid disappointment. First, like alcohol, there is a legal age requirement when purchasing weed and cannabis products in Canada. You’ll likely need to provide government-issued identification to prove you’re 19 years of age or older.
Second, when you buy cannabis online, there is a quantity limit to your order. Legally, each online transaction can contain a maximum of 30grams of cannabis flower, roughly 2100 grams of cannabis oil, or the equivalent in edibles.
Each province will have its own stipulations regarding buying cannabis online, like sourcing from government-run websites, and cross-province delivery. It’s important to look into local purchasing requirements for your specific province.
How Do I Know A Company is Safe?
A common concern when purchasing from any online retailer is knowing whether or not the company is safe to deal with – buying cannabis online is no different. The best way to know if an online cannabis store is reliable is to look at reviews.
A quick Google or Facebook search for the “best online cannabis stores” in your city is really all you need. Many weed retailers offer promotions to those who post reviews, so you should have no shortage of testimonials to rifle through. In North America, there are several weed-finding apps that are a great resource for vetting online cannabis stores.
How To Buy Weed Online
Now to the fun part – actually purchasing your weed. When buying, you’ll need to first decide what type of high you’re looking for. Are you looking to space out on the couch? Or get your creative juices flowing? Do you use cannabis for pain relief, or mental health management? A good online weed store will provide detailed descriptions of the type of strain, grade, THC and CBD content, as well as the taste, smell, and type of high provided by each product, so you’ll be able to find exactly what you’re looking for.
There are 3 types of cannabis you can get high with: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid. Indica strains will provide a mellow, lazy high; a great way to remember this is the saying “indica puts you in-da-couch”. Sativas are excellent daytime strains, with more cerebral highs that boost creativity and focus, and are less likely to cause lethargy. Hybrids are, well, a hybrid of the two strains often offering a nice mix of relaxation without sedation, and uplifted mood.
Active Cannabis Ingredients
You’ll also want to consider THC and CBD content. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – the part that gets you high. The higher the percentage, the more intense your high. CBD is a non-psychoactive ingredient that provides excellent medicinal benefits without getting you high. For cannabis users seeking pain management, or dealing with anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders, CBD can be an excellent natural addition to your management plan.
How do you like to get high? How high do you like to get? How often?
Choosing your preferred online cannabis store will depend on whether you prefer to smoke, dab, or eat your way to elevation. If you’re a heavy user, you may also be looking for bulk or budget-friendly options. With a little research you can find an online cannabis store that offers promotions, loyalty programs, and the best price per gram.
