Where To Buy Weed Online in Vancouver

Since legalization in 2018, cannabis has taken Canada by storm. Every day, thousands of new Canadians dabble with cannabis products. Whether using cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, the legalization of the cannabis plant has opened a massive market for the sale of cannabis both in person and online.

Prior to legalization, users would have to utilize physical unlicensed dispensaries around the Vancouver area. Many of these unlicensed stores would only sell for medical purposes to patients. Vancouver took a very liberal stance when it came to cannabis, so the city generally allowed these businesses to operate unscathed.

In addition, many online dispensaries started to open up. Some of these online dispensaries would sell to medical patients, but many of them sold cannabis illegally to recreational users as well. These unlicensed online dispensaries would sell black-market cannabis products and deliver them across the country. These stores were often referred to as MOMs or Mail Order Marijuana stores.

The challenge with MOMs is that their products are rarely tested for quality and safety. Think of it like this: would you consume unlicensed alcohol or tobacco products that were made at some unknown facility? Moonshine from some random person on the internet? Probably not.

Rant over.

Anyways, in early 2020, the British Columbia provincial government passed legislation that permits the online sale of cannabis for licensed cannabis companies. With the onset of COVID-19, it became challenging for licensed cannabis companies to navigate the no-payments-online restrictions. Previously, licensed stores could take click-and-collect pre-orders online but without accepting payments.

Later in 2020, that legislation was amended. Licensed cannabis stores can now take click-and-collect pre-orders online as well as accept payments. There is also speculation that the British Columbia provincial government will allow licensed cannabis companies to deliver as well. This will be a huge step in the right direction for those that enjoy cannabis products.
