The best dispensaries to check out
Different shops have different vibes, ranging from Apple Store to Starbucks to upscale fast-casual restaurants. Just keep an eye out for unauthorized dispensaries, like CAFE, which look virtually the same as legal shops but aren’t regulated. Give these Toronto dispensaries a try:
Owned by Canadian cannabis juggernaut Canopy Growth, Tokyo Smoke has 14 legal dispensaries all over Toronto and Scarborough. Each Tokyo Smoke has a massive selection to choose from, with over 125 strains and tiny sniffing pods (or “scent orbs”) so that you can have a whiff before you buy. This is definitely the place to go if you want to try the latest “cannabis 2.0” goodies like drinks and edibles.
The Neighbourhood Joint
This dispensary in The Beaches pays homage to the system of pressurized mail tubes that sat beneath Toronto in the 1930s, and it’s Tweedledoob’s favorite. “It’s family-owned with friendly and knowledgeable staff, including a very good dog who is obsessed with their pneumatic tube system that brings product from their inventory room to the front counter,” she says, adding that there’s a convenient separate kiosk for click-and-collect orders so you don’t have to wait for people who are deciding what they want.
