Online purchasing is becoming the new norm. It saves a lot when purchasing products online but still, not everyone knows how to go about it. Since the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada in 2018, many Canadians are still inquiring how they can buy cannabis online.
When cannabis was legalized nationwide by the federal government, its distribution and other policies were left in the hands of province leadership. Before its legalization, cannabis was only restricted to medical patients. The patients could purchase cannabis with a recommendation from a medic. As of now after the legalization, the rules have changed.
Each province has come up with its restrictions stipulating how you can purchase cannabis online. Some provinces allow you to purchase directly from private retailers’ websites while others from a single government-run website. Therefore, before you opt for an online purchase, be sure to know your province restrictions.
Purchasing weed online requires you to create an account on the official province online cannabis store. This is the foremost important and the first step in purchasing weed. Though it may seem a little time-consuming as compared to walking in a store and showing your identity card, it is only done once and the site will save your details. The site will remember your details anytime you visit.
Having an online account is the only surety that you will make a purchase. Though this directive is questionable for the sake of privacy and security, it is for the restriction on minors making purchases. Some stores will require you to have a permanent account, others will allow you to be signing in as a guest.
The online account will need you to feed in your personal information to the website. This information includes your name, area of residence, province name, and your selected method of payment. Some of the retail websites will require your ID photo on the website or upon delivery.
When you are done creating an account, and it is verified, you can make a purchase. The retailer will then process your order, and package the cannabis. It will then be delivered to you via postal mail or other means the retailer uses. Some online stores will require you to pay before or after the delivery is made. The delivery period usually depends on the retail store you purchased from.
Purchasing cannabis online is quite fast but you should be wary of illegal retailers. Cannabis products from a legal retailer will have an excise stamp on the package. A legal retailer will require you to verify your age which is mandatory. Purchasing weed from a legal retailer is a surety that the product you are consuming is safe and it meets the legal requirements of the federal and provincial governments.
Online purchasing is increasingly becoming the new form of purchasing cannabis products. You can make orders from the comfort of your home and be sure to purchase a quality product.
