Cannabis in Canada

Posted by Maria Marcantonio on

Canada is the world’s second country to legalize cannabis for recreational and medical purposes. Toronto has become the epicenter of the new cannabis world. The result of a national poll conducted by Nanos research in 2016 shows that 7 out of 10 Canadians favoured smoking cannabis.

The legalization of cannabis in Canada has boosted the tourism industry, making it a popular destination more than ever. In this blog, we have come up with some of the Canadian cities worthy of celebrating cannabis, from coast to coast. 

Vancouver, British Columbia

The city with the largest cannabis scenes in Canada. The very first place you need to visit in Vancouver is New Amsterdam Café. Bring your cannabis with you and enjoy the toking while satisfying the munchies in a fun environment. Vancouver has got your back with Shambala if you are a music enthusiast. After all, there is a reason why Vancouver was called the "Amsterdam of North America."

Toronto, Ontario

Referred to as the "New York of Canada," Toronto is home to the world's largest Global Marijuana March, which takes place on the first Saturday of May. Toronto welcomes cannabis enthusiasts with open arms. Get high and experience the artsy flicks in Toronto by taking part in the Toronto International Film Festival or attend the Hillside MusicHillside Music Festival that features various eclectic artists.

Montreal, Quebec

After getting high with high-quality cannabis venture out in Montreal to increase your heightened senses to another level by the infusion of European Architecture and French Culture that makes Montreal a stunning and relaxed place. And if the munchies strike, just look out for poutine. Crispy French fries dipped in cheese curds and gravy is the perfect snack to satisfy a stoner's craving.

Calgary, Alberta

Calgary may not seem like a cannabis city, but the industry is growing quicker than ever. Calgary is now home to the HempFest Cannabis Expo, which also includes a legal cannabis competition. Calgary is famous for its electric street art along "Graffiti alley," that you can enjoy while smoking grass on a guided tour. Calgary offers you cannabis-infused experiences for everything from paddle boating to video gaming.

Burlington, Ontario

Overshadowed by its mighty metropolitan brother, Toronto, Burlington is still a remarkable Canadian city. For cannabis-users, this small, cozy town is best in the fall. When buying cannabis, check out the KAIA Cannabis store in Burlington, one of the city‘s premier spots for buying high-quality cannabis products. And once you are feeling the buzz, you can stroll around the fantastic waterfront parks or stop by the farmers market. Burlington‘s small town is the perfect hub for a relaxing cannabis experience.



The cities listed above are just a taste of what Canada has to offer to its cannabis consumers. With the legalization in effect, the country is continuously progressing, and as the barriers to cannabis are removed, there are likely to be even more places explicitly tailored for grass lovers.
