The Top 3 Places to Buy Recreational Cannabis in (and around) YEG

The Top 3 Places to Buy Recreational Cannabis in (and around) YEG

Did you know: recreational cannabis has been prohibited in Canada since 1923?

Well, as Bob Dylan once said, “The times they are changin’” and history is being made! As of October 17, 2018, Canadians can officially (and legally) purchase cannabis for adult-use.

Unfortunately, as adult-use cannabis is a brand new industry, there has been a scramble for Canadian cannabis companies to acquire retail licenses, and ready their shops for legalization day.

To help eager consumers know where to go, and to highlight those companies we believe paved the way to legalization, we’ve put together a guide of the three Edmonton cannabis shops you could visit on October 17th, and the three shops we’re hoping to see with licenses in the near future.


Cannabis Doors Are Open On The 17th

These cannabis retail stores have been granted interim licenses from AGLC. This means they are able to purchase cannabis products from AGLC, and use them for retail sale on October 17th.


1) Fire and Flower

Walking into Fire and Flower is like walking into a modern art gallery - that sells cannabis. The atmosphere is inviting, the staff are knowledgeable and the decor is stylish. This shop is for those looking for a curated cannabis experience. Our favourite feature are the “smell jars,” which allow you to get a feel for each strain with your own nose. Fire and Flower have stocked their shelves with “all the colors of the cannabis rainbow” - so we know you’ll find what you’re looking for.

2) Daily Blaze

Daily Blaze is a locally owned shop located within Stony Plain’s Heritage Market building. What makes this space unique is that the Heritage Market has been a fixture of Stony Plain’s main street for over 100 years. As its owners put it, “Heritage Market is a location that existed before cannabis prohibition, and now is home to one of the first legal recreational cannabis retail stores!” From dried cannabis flower to cannabis in oil form, Daily Blaze has promised a wide variety of products at competitive prices.
