Looking to buy weed in Downtown Vancouver? Wondering where the hell all the dispensaries disappeared to? Well we’ve got you covered….
If you are new to Vancouver and looking for legal weed or just brand new to smoking weed, then the first place you’ll need to start is how to buy weed in Vancouver. Although Canada legalized weed recreationally in October, 2018 it has actually become harder and harder to buy weed in Vancouver. This is due to many of the previously unlicensed marijuana dispensaries being forced to close down. This has left Vancouver with just 3 legal marijuana dispensaries currently in operation in Downtown Vancouver. The only other way to legally buy weed in Vancouver is online and you can get $120 ounces of premium BC Bud from Shamrock Cannabis. They even give 15% off first time orders.
But if want to buy weed in Downtown Vancouver right now…
As of July 2019, there are currently only 3 dispensaries operating in Downtown Vancouver. City Cannabis Co on Robson Street near Granville St is the most centrally located and does not require membership but is very expensive compared to other options.
Farm Cannabis in the Downtown EastSide (369 Columbia St) is the second place to buy weed in Vancouver and is easily the best dispensary currently in operation in Vancouver. Their staff are very nice, helpful and friendly, they have a huge variety of products and their very reasonably priced. [CLOSED: As of August 25th Farm Cannabis has been temporarily shut down pending a license from the BC government.]
UPDATE: Due to Covid-19 The Medical Cannabis Dispensary is closed until further notice. You can still order online. For more info see here. The last option for legal dispensaries in Vancouver is The Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary located at 1182 Thurlow St. This dispensary used to be a members-only medical cannabis dispensary but now is open to anyone with a valid I.D. or membership. I just visited this dispensary and while there was a long line the offered a very good selection and decent prices. I purchased 3.5g of Girl Scout Cookies for $28. Also they have $5 joints for sale that are quite good. Overall this is currently the best dispensary in Downtown Vancouver.
Note: If you want to weed weed in Vancouver all dispensaries in BC require ID to prove you are over the age of 19.
