Frequently Asked Questions
Orders are processed in our warehouse 2-3 days after your payment has been received and deposited into our account. Processing times are the same for each order, regardless of the shipping option chosen. Once your package has left our facility, shipping times vary depending on which shipping method you have chosen. Unfortunately, paying for faster shipping times will not influence the time it takes to process and pack your order. To speed up processing times, we recommend placing orders early Monday morning and sending your e-transfer immediately afterwords, ensuring your order number is included in the notes of your transfer. Our office hours are 9-5 Monday to Friday, so orders placed later in the week may miss the weekend cutoff for being taken to Canada Post.
When an order is placed, it’s status is seen as ‘on hold’ until your payment has been received and deposited into our account. Your bank should notify you as soon as the transfer has been accepted. Once accepted, your order will be packed within 2-3 days, and the status will be changed to ‘complete’. We will notify you once your order has been completed, and a tracking number will be provided to you in an email from Canada Post.

We’re one of 120+ dispensaries in Vancouver (over 300 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.
