Top 10 Weed Stores in Vernon

If you were thinking about heading to Amsterdam in the near future to express your right to legal weed, then think again. As of 2018, the Cannabis Act of 2018 essentially made it legal for smokers to enjoy their hobby without fear of recrimination, opening the floodgates for business to dispense it across the country.

Not many cities have been as proactive in helping Canadians get hold of their weed as Vernon in British Columbia. When you roll through the center of town, there are what seems like hundreds of weed stores, all providing the same product. Although this is incredibly freeing to watch, it’s difficult for customers to choose between the stores’ services.

If you fall into this category, you don’t want to spend time researching. You just want to smoke. With that in mind, we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you to ensure you get the best results. Here are the top ten weed stores in Vernon.


1. ARCannabis

Is it wrong that we’ve put ourselves at the top of the list? We would say sorry, but we don’t mean it! The truth is, ARCannabis is the best dispensary in Vernon, and we have the products and services to prove it. First of all, we’re licensed, so there’s no reason to worry about your safety and security.

Secondly, we have a wide range of brands that we carry as we believe we are only as good as our products, which is ARCannabis stocks the best of the best. Whether it’s Top Leaf, Sundial, or Royal High, you’ll find them all in our brick-and-mortar and online stores. Plus, there are three other dispensaries that we own in British Columbia, aside from our Vernon store on Kalamalka Lake Road.

To us, this highlights the fact that we don’t play around when it comes to weed. So, if you’re searching for an experienced and quality distributor you can trust, one with links to the top weed brands, you should look no further than ARCannabis.


2. Ocean Sprout

Ocean Sprout is a chain of stores that have been around for a while. In the Vancouver, BC, region, they already own some of the top-rated stores, which is how you know they know their seeds. Like ARCannabis, they team up with some of the best weed manufacturers and suppliers in the world.

However, what sets them apart is their different strains. They are pretty novel in many ways as they include flavors and tastes to make the smoker experience even better. From Organic Cream Chocolate, which has 24% THC, to Organic Orange Dream (26%) and Organic BlueBerry Orange Cheesecake (23%), we know you’ll love their creations.

They also sell pot and poppy seeds for growing and eating. These are for more advanced smokers, but if you’re one of them, you’ll enjoy getting your hands dirty in the cultivation process.


3. WakenBake

No, these aren’t high on the list just because of their super-cool name! Yes, it’s catchy and witty. Still, the WakenBake boys and girls are dedicated to their weed customers in Vernon, which means you receive a high standard of products and customer care.

As you would expect, weed is their number one selling point - Gold Seal Hash in their Top Shelf Premier right now - yet WakenBake is great at branching out and trying new things. For example, their shoppers love the lime-flavored Forbidden Fruit hard candy that contains 300mg of THC. WakenBake has CBD stock, too, so you don’t need to be a weed connoisseur to browse their selection. 

And, if you want to kit yourself out with merchandise, you can buy anything from clothing to glassware.


4. Flora Cannabis

You’ll find all the same brands in Flora Cannabis’ weed store as you would anywhere else. So, what’s the big draw? Well, what Flora does really well is to treat customers as first-timers. This isn’t to say they buzz around you, forcing you into purchases you don’t want. That doesn’t happen.

Instead, whether it’s your first or fifth time, the shop is set out to ensure you understand what each strain is and how it differs from the rest. They do this with smell jars, tablets for browsing, and buds and edibles for customers to check out with their own hands and eyes.

Flora Cannabis is from Okanagan, which means it’s a local brand that takes care of its residents. If you can’t get to the Vernon store for any reason, they have three more in Okanagan, BC, that might be to your taste.


5. Quantum 1 Cannabis

Quantum 1 Cannabis takes the weed business seriously. Currently, it has a handful of stores in British Columbia, including Vernon, and it’s looking to expand further as it tries to make weed available to Canadians across the country. As a result, it has a plethora of links that allow it to offer some of the hottest brands in the industry.

Unlike the others on this list, it doesn’t have a homely, small-town vibe that locals might like, but there’s no disputing their motivation and desire. And, with thirty years of experience in the weed market, they know what they’re talking about!

You can check out their website for more information or visit any of the stores closest to you.


6. Spiritleaf

Spiritleaf is a popular weed store in Vernon because of its mantra. While everyone knows that ARCannabis is the top weed store in Vernon and the world - it’s a fact - there’s no denying that Spiritleaf goes above and beyond for its customers. How? By learning more about the art of marijuana cultivation.

It attempts to be the most knowledgeable source of recreational cannabis, and it does a very good job. An element that differs from the rest of the sector in Vernon is that Spiritleaf has its own range of in-house products and the leading products you would usually find on the market.

You can expect to see more of them in Vernon and Canada since Spiritleaf is the first Canadian cannabis company to be a franchise.


7. Kalamalka Cannabis

Kalamalka Cannabis takes its name from a beautiful lake a couple of kilometers from the city center. This is worth a mention because it highlights Kalamalka’s roots in the local community. If you like to help out your friendly-family stores, you can do a lot worse than Kalamalka Cannabis.

This weed store also has plenty of products on its shelves, something you will find useful if you’re an intermediate or advanced smoker. Whether it’s cannabis flower, pre-rolls, topicals, edibles and soft drinks, oils, or vape products, you won’t feel let down by the selection. 

The store is well-presented and laid out, too, so you will feel instantly at home as soon as you walk through the door.


8. Blended Buds

Once you enter the Blended Buds weed store in Vernon, you realize that you’re dealing with a high-tech company. However, don’t be put off by the appearance because this brand is incredibly friendly and helpful. If anything, their emphasis is on guiding people through the legalization process, making them ideal for beginners and intermediates.

Plus, Blended has one of the best online ordering systems, which is essential during these difficult times. You can order and collect your items at the store with a click of a button or get them delivered to your door if you don’t want to take the risk.

If you haven’t tried them before, the bongs are big sellers and well worth considering.


9. Greenhorn Cannabis

Greenhorn Cannabis is about as local as it gets in Vernon. Everything in their store is toned down because all they care about are the products, and it shows. You’ll find brands that you might not have come across before, i.e., Houndstooth, also known as CLand, and if you can’t see the product you want, don’t be afraid to ask.

The owners and staff are all about the Vernon community, so if you enquire about a strain, they’ll happily do the legwork for you! Greenhorn is popular among people who haven’t smoked much before but want to try it out due to their local knowledge and customer service.


10. Dutch Love

The name just implores you to go inside and check out the European vibes. With a name like Dutch Love, your weed game has got to be strong, and this company doesn’t disappoint. The Vancouver-based group that owns it also has a ton of other stores throughout Canada, including Ottawa and Toronto, so it’s legitimate. They are also proactive when it comes to charity work, which is another reason they have grown in size in the past couple of years.

The weed buying experience with Dutch Love is a bit different, but in a good way, as you receive a disarming approach. With their standing in the industry, they are well worth a look!

Summary

With the law allowing you to carry thirty grams of cannabis on you anywhere in the country, it’s no wonder weed stores are big news. As you can tell from this list, Vernon is by no means being left behind.
