Consider These 5 Factors When Looking To Order Weed Online In Canada
Since the recreational use of marijuana became legal in Canada in 2018, the sale of marijuana has now progressed from in-store purchases to a largely online setting. As a new consumer, learning how to order weed online can be quite challenging, despite being the most straightforward and convenient method of ordering marijuana.
To make things easier for you, we have made a list of 5 things you need to know before ordering weed online.
Ordering marijuana online is easier than ever before. However, there are a few things you may need to do before you can successfully make a purchase.
You may need to create an online account to place an order. For some websites, you can create an account then browse the website for products. Others allow you to create an account when completing your order.
You have to select a product, add it to the cart and pay for it. The mail-order marijuana online dispensary will process the purchase and ship it to you anywhere in Canada. You should, however, note that shipping costs vary depending on location.

Knowing where to buy marijuana online is very important to avoid getting scammed. Wondering how to spot a fake website? Here are some of the red flags to look out for when buying cannabis online;
• Weed Is Way Underpriced
Learn to differentiate offers and ridiculously low – too good to be true prices. It might be a scam if the prices are very low and the website has no real reviews on review aggregators. If the online dispensary is reputable, the low price may be an offer, discount or a sale drive.
• The General Look Of The Website Is Unprofessional
This may be your cue to run for your life and money. Many scammers don’t invest in their sites and only put together a few pages to make it look authentic to a new buyer.
• The website Has No Contact Information
If you can’t find an email address, phone number or a way to contact them, it is likely a scam.
The minimum age to buy weed online in most provinces in Canada is 19 years. It’s only in Alberta where 18-year-olds can legally buy weed. In Quebec, the minimum age is 21 years.
When cannabis was legalized in the country, federal law allowed provinces to make own laws and regulations regarding where to use and maximum amounts of weed that you can have at home.
Federal laws allow adults to possess up to 30 grams in public and grow up to 4 plants per residence for personal use. In Quebec, you can have up to 150 grams or 5¼ oz per household. In BC, the maximum is 1000 grams or 2pounds ¾ oz, while some provinces don’t limit how much weed you can hold at home.
Ensure you know how much marijuana you can legally hold in your province before purchasing weed online and having it delivered to your home.
One of the main benefits of buying buds online is the access to a wider variety of products than you would in a store. Online dispensaries typically have more strains and types of products, complete with descriptions and other resources to help you make a better choice.
Most online dispensaries will have their strains categorized as indica, sativa or hybrids. Although weed affects each individual differently, sativa strains are generally uplifting and energizing, while indicas are generally more physical in their effects, making them more relaxing. On the other hand, hybrids offer the best of both worlds, although they can be sativa or indica-leaning in effects.
Before ordering cannabis from an online store, ask yourself when you want to use it and for what purpose. Sativas, because of their generally energizing effects, are mostly used during the day, while indicas, due to their relaxing, couch-locking and sleep-inducing effects, are best used in the evenings.
Cannabis strains also differ in potency and cannabinoid concentration levels. Some are more suitable for medicinal purposes, while some are better used for recreational purposes. Research before getting on the online store, as having so many options may feel overwhelming at first.
Alternatively, you can also order at least one of each type – sativa, hybrid and indica and see which affects you prefer.
Cannabis can be consumed in several different ways. You need to decide what kind of product you can use with ease. Smoking cannabis bud remains the most popular way of using weed, with edibles coming a close second.
If you are not a fan of smoking, vaping products deliver the same effects at similar speeds but in a cleaner way. You can also use edibles as they are easy to use and deliver long-lasting effects.
Other popular options include tinctures that can be ingested orally, added to foods or taken sublingually (under the tongue), and cannabis topicals applied to the skin.
Products such as dabs are more potent than regular buds and edibles but may require special rigs to consume. Unless you order the concentrates and rig from the same shop or have one at home, it would do you no good ordering dabs with no way to consume them.
If you have one or are buying one, check out our comprehensive guide on how to use a dab rig for the perfect first-time experience.
