The Beginner’s Guide to Buying Weed Online in Canada
Are you pressed for time and can’t make it to the dispensary in person? Or do you just not like the idea of going into a weed shop? Don’t worry. Canada offers the sale of safe, legal weed, edibles, and more online. Check out this article to see how it works.
Keyword(s): buying weed online
You want weed, but you don’t want to leave the house to get it.
Weed delivered to your home is much better than the hassle of leaving the house and finding a dispensary to buy your weed.
The good news is, you can get weed, edibles, and seeds online! But there are some best practices to help you navigate getting legal weed from the internet.
Here is your beginner’s guide to buying weed online in Canada.
Check the Laws
First things first: check the laws for your province.
Here in Canada, marijuana legalization laws take effect 17 October 2018.
It’s true! You no longer have to fear the law to have your weed . . . and smoke it, too.
But pay attention. Depending on where you live, laws will vary.
In general, you can have up to 30 grams of dried cannabis if you are an adult 18 years or older. Federal laws also apply to allowable amounts of edibles and seeds.
Do a little research before you’re high. Then when that high takes over, you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Don’t Leave a Trail
Even with new legalization laws in place, you might worry about leaving a marijuana trail to your home.
Paranoia need not ruin your chill vibe!
When you buy pot online, you can purchase it anonymously.
Here’s how (again, set this up before your high kicks in):
- Set up a digital currency account using Bitcoin. It’s an open-source currency, not controlled by anyone.
Find an online dispensary that accepts Bitcoin, and the money can’t trace back to you.
- Use an encrypted network that allows anonymous communication. A free software like Tor helps you browse the internet while keeping “watchers” from seeing where you are and what you do online.
- Connect to the internet with a VPN. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows access blocked by censorship or filters. VPNs also keep your information off of Wifi networks where you can be monitored and traced.
Know Before You Buy Your High
When you walk into a dispensary, helpful people point you to what you want.
When searching online, the options can get confusing.
Here are a few basic tips to narrow down your options when you buy marijuana online:
Indica and Sativa
Weed is available in different strains.
- Looking for relaxation or pain relief? You want Cannabis Indica.
- Need a creativity bump and a mood boost? Go for Cannabis Sativa.
For the best of both worlds, you’ll also find hybrid strains.
Within these two main strains, your find a variety of strain types. Try different ones until you find the one you like best. Then enjoy!
To Smoke or To Eat
If you’re already high, we know you’re ready for a snack. We recommend ordering a pizza.
And when it comes to your preferred form of marijuana, you also have edible options online.
You don’t have to be a smoker to enjoy weed.
You might think pot edibles are only the brownies you see in movies. But there is a wide range of recipes for consuming marijuana if brownies aren’t your thing.
Too buzzed to bake? Buy your edibles online. You’ll find everything from teas to candies to capsules.
The Best Buzz
But which is the best buzz? Smoking or eating?
That’s a great question, and it brings up a good point. The “best” buzz depends on your preference.
Many people choose edibles because they want their weed without the smoke. But smoking your favorite strain of weed is preferable for others.
Note that most edibles have a higher concentrate of THC than smoking. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive part of marijuana that makes you high.
Be sure you start slowly with edibles. While you enjoy your delicious marijuana snack, you’ll reach your high quicker than from smoking weed.
Quality is of Concern
No one wants bad weed. But unfortunately, it’s out there.
No matter your preferred form of marijuana, be sure it is good quality and comes from a reputable online dispensary.
When you go to a physical dispensary, there are cues you see and smell to help you find the best quality weed.
If a strain smells dusty or damp, stay away from it. Also, be sure and avoid weed on the bottom shelf. It’s usually the lowest-quality marijuana in the shop.
But when buying online, you don’t see shelves, and you can’t smell before you submit your order.
When ordering weed online, do a few things:
- Look for a well-designed website with easy-to-find information
- Ask questions of the online support. Note how quickly they respond and if they do a good job of answering your questions
- Check reviews from others online
- Check with other weed users you know and trust
- Look for local online dispensaries. Check them out and see if they seem legitimate and well-maintained
When it comes to edibles, look for packaging that lists all ingredients. Lists of ingredients should include notes about THC levels.
You need to know what you’re ingesting or inhaling when it comes to the quality of your weed. Do some research for a more enjoyable high later.
