Buying weed online – A beginner’s guide

buying weed online

Marijuana, also known as cannabis or weed, was legalised for recreational use for those of legal age in 2018. There are lots of ways to go about purchasing marijuana, although the easiest is definitely purchasing it online. We’ve put together a beginner’s guide to buying weed online to help keep you safe and on the right side of the law.

Medical Marijuana – buying weed online

Buying medical cannabis in Canada has been legal since 2001 and any person with a prescription is allowed to possess either 150 grams or 30 times the prescribed amount for one daily dose. Qualifying for the limits applied to medical use requires a valid prescription obtained from a licensed healthcare provider. If you do not have a valid prescription, you are required by law to stay within the limits for recreational use.

Recreational use – buying weed online

The law in Canada means that anyone 18 or above is able to buy and carry up to 30 grams of dried marijuana outside the home at any one time. There are currently no legal limits on how much you can keep at home, and if you want to buy some kush seeds and try your hand at growing your own, you are legally allowed to.

Each province in Canada is allowed to raise the limits for adult recreational use, but not lower them. They can also raise the minimum age requirement for possession and use. The law in Canada allows for the possession of up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or its equivalent.

1g dried marijuana is equivalent to:

  • 5g fresh cannabis
  • 0.25g concentrate
  • 15g edibles
  • 70g liquid
  • 1 plant seed

It should be noted that the penalties for being found to possess anything over these limits can be anything from a small fine up to as much as five years in prison.

How to choose a weed dispensary

Consumers have been warned by the Medical Marijuana Association that is important that you are cautious when you are choosing a dispensary to purchase your weed to avoid accidentally buying from illegal or disreputable sellers. The four main locations to purchase weed online are Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia. Make sure that any dispensary you are buying from is clearly licensed, which ensures that they are regulated which results in quality products free from contamination.

Upon entering a website you will be required to confirm your age, and then you can browse through products and categories to compare prices and products between sellers.

Understanding what to buy

Buying cannabis for the first time can be overwhelming when you are faced with all the different options. Take some time to look through the different options available to you, such as dried cannabis, weed edibles or cannabis concentrate. The two base cannabis species are known as Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. The former provides stimulating effects whereas the latter is much more of a relaxing effect on both mind and body. There are also hybrids which work to give some of the effects of each species.

Cannabis is made up of two main compounds: cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD has anecdotal evidence to suggest it has wellness benefits and can be taken from either hemp or cannabis, whereas THC is the part of the cannabis plant which gives the “high” euphoria effect.

What are the costs of buying weed online?

As with all products, the prices of cannabis will fluctuate due to external factors as well as supply and demand. It will likely also increase in price over time as inflation raises the prices of almost everything. However, buying weed online from a reputable seller should cost roughly the same amount exactly as purchasing it in a physical store. Make sure to compare prices across a few sites to understand the typical prices so that you are able to identify the best deals. You may have to pay a shipping or delivery fee if you are buying from an online vendor also.

Delivery

When it comes to the delivery of marijuana, the process is extremely similar to buying any other product online. Most stores will ship through the Canadian Postal service or use a reputable third-party courier.

Conclusion

Overall, buying weed online is not any more difficult than buying anything else over the internet, provided you know what you are looking for. Be sure to search for a reputable vendor and then takes some time to understand the market and compare several sellers to ensure you are paying a fair price. Be sure that the website you are on is safe and legitimate and use the same common sense you would buy from any other online vendor and you will be a confident online weed shopper in no time!
