We're one of 120+ dispensaries in Vancouver (over 200 in Canada) that are NOT operating under the federally-approved medical marijuana system. To qualify under the federal system, you'll need to get a doctor's approval and Health Canada's permission to purchase from one of the 26 licensed producers. City Hall and VPD have allowed dispensaries to proliferate so people can safely access medicine, so long as there are no sales to minors or any gang affiliations.
There are about 20 mail order marijuana sites in Vancouver. Vancouver has been shipping weed in the mail since the 90's and to date, we know of no-one who has ever been charged with receiving pot in the mail.
That being said, there is still a risk on both ends as we are not working with any federal approval.

Please put your 6 digit order number as the security question. For example, "000000"
You do not need to put "Your order number 000000."
No, it is not necessary as we already receive a notification to our inbox from your bank when the e-transfer is sent to us.
If you do not receive a payment confirmation e-mail from us after 24 hours, it means that your bank may have placed a hold on the transfer and is waiting for you to verify payment, or you sent the e-transfer to an incorrect e-mail address. Please ensure accuracy in the transfer details and please note our email address changes periodically without notice.
Please allow more time for e-transfers sent over the weekend to be deposited.
All orders are placed "on hold" until payment has been accepted.
Please give us a day to accept Interac e-transfers. However, if you are sending payment over the weekend please allow until Monday morning for your e-transfer to be accepted.
It also may be the case that your e-transfer was not accepted because your bank blocked the transfer. In this case you need to contact the bank to verify the transfer so that we can accept payment and begin processing your order.

Sativa and Indica are the two major types of cannabis plants which can mix together to create hybrid strains. Each strain has its own range of effects on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medicinal benefits.
The high produced from smoking Indica bud is a strong physical body high that will make you sleepy or ‘couch-locked’ and provides a deep relaxation feeling compared to a Sativa high, which is known to be more energetic and uplifting.
Marijuana strains range from pure sativas to pure indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both indica and sativa (30% indica – 70% sativa, 50% – 50% combinations, 80% indica – 20% sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
Indica dominant marijuana strains tend to have a strong sweet or sour odor to the buds (ex. Kush, OG Kush) providing a very relaxing and strong body high that is helpful in treating general anxiety, body pain, and sleeping disorders.
Indicas are very effective for overall pain relief and is often used to treat insomnia for many people. Indica buds are most commonly smoked by medical marijuana patients in the late evening or even right before bed due to how sleepy and tired you become when high from an indica strain of marijuana, like Kush.
Benefits of Indica:
- Relieves body pain
- Relaxes muscles
- Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
- Relieves headaches and migraines
- Relieves anxiety or stress
Sativa dominant marijuana strains tend to have a more grassy type odor to the buds providing an uplifting, energetic and “cerebral” high that is best suited for daytime smoking. A sativa high is one filled with creativity and energy as being high on sativa can spark new ideas and creations. Many artists take advantage of the creative powers of cannabis sativa (marijuana) to create paintings.
Benefits of Sativa:
- Feelings of well-being and at-ease
- Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
- Stimulates and energizes
- Increases focus and creativity
- Fights depression
Please be advised that due to circumstances that are out of our control, such as summer heat and humidity, there is a risk that the shatter you ordered will turn to budder by the time you receive it.
Unfortunately, shatter turning to budder is not uncommon when exposed to heat but it does not make your shatter unsafe in any way.
We do not offer any reimbursement or refunds if your shatter turns to budder.
If you do not get your package 2 days after the expected arrival date, let us know and we will file a trace with Canada Post.
If a trace is filed, Canada Post will conduct an investigation (which can take 5 business days to complete). If they can locate the package, they will ship it to you and you'll get it a few days later. If it's deemed "unrecoverable", we will send you a 1x replacement package (up to $500), free of charge.
We do not offer postage refunds if your order arrives late due to any postal issues.
There are 2 likely scenarios:
a) the postal worker put it in the wrong mailbox, or
b) what often happens is that a postal worker will scan in all the packages saying they were "successfully delivered" then spend that day and/or the next day delivering it.

From Canada Post
The investigation involves contacting the addressee to confirm delivery, or to better understand how they receive their mail and, as applicable, if they checked:
- with the front desk, security or mail room at the receiving address to see if someone else accepted the item on their behalf;
- their Community Mail Box for the item or parcel compartment key;
- around their property to see if the item was left in a safe location or in a mailbox attached to their home.
In rare cases, a delivery scan is entered into our system before the item is delivered. If you become aware that the addressee has received the item before we contact you, simply reply to this e-mail indicating the item has been received.”
If you're tracking your package on Canada Post's website and it has not updated in sometime, it's most likely due to your package missing a scan, which is fairly common.
More often than not, members get their packages on time or a day later. If you do not receive it 2 days after your expected date, let us know so we can file a trace with the post office.

The delivery times are estimated by Canada Post and they are our sole method of delivery. Shipping times vary dependent on your location within Canada as CP requires more time and reduces deliveries to smaller towns/rural areas. Canada Post may also experience delays due to weather.
For instance, Canada Posts website states: "Delivery standards apply to items sent between most major urban centres and are estimates only. Actual delivery times depend on origin, destination, weather conditions and other factors. Other terms and conditions apply."
Packages to Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Newfoundland are not guaranteed by Canada Post. As a result, we are unable to offer a guarantee to our customers from those areas either.
