Marijuana is now officially legal in Canada.
What does this mean?
And it means that you can go to a certain store and freely buy a product containing marijuana without a special certificate. Yes, yes, this is no joke. Officially recognized this news not so long ago, but in fact, marijuana was “legal” both in the U.S. and in Canada before that. The same stores, the same opportunities to “smoke”.
Marijuana products in modern stores
In fact, you could always smoke right on the street without hiding from the police, and they didn’t even pay attention to you. The difference is that before in the stores, they could ask for a doctor’s note, but they might not ask for one, as they say. The note meant that you needed marijuana for medicinal purposes, for example as a painkiller.
In addition to buying in the stores themselves, you can also use the online dispensary Canada service. There are many such stores, and they exist even in very small towns where a couple of thousand people live. In the town of Cumberland, BC, CA. The population is 3753 people. The town looks pretty small but populous.
“Marijuana” is sold in all sorts of forms, from cigarettes to “cones”, drinks, candy, cookies, chocolates, and more that can be found in the average supermarket. Each product has its own special child-proof packaging.
What do we mean – for example, a drink has a special lid, which is very difficult to open with your hands? If it is a plastic “jar” of candy, then it is also very difficult to open, and you need to know the “secret” of how to do it, if it is a “bag”, it is made of a material that is very difficult to tear.
The good thing is that the store sells a variety of products. They even sell a cream that helps with pain.
The saleswoman told me that it is bought, for example, by cyclists if the store is near the mountain biking trails. They dab it on their joints – it relieves the pain of bruises or sprains.
All budget buds have a description of the composition and how much THC and CBD it contains. Very briefly, these are the “ingredients” that determine the type of effect on a person. The more THC, the more euphoria, the more CBD, and the greater the effect of sedation and relaxation.
Prices are ok for example, a box of candy is about $4, a small chocolate bar costs $ 5, and in general, everything is affordable.
