At the same time as shopping online has become accepted as a normal, everyday activity, legislation regarding the sale and consumption of cannabis in Canada has been transformed. The concurrence of these two social changes has led, unsurprisingly, to a new phenomena - the online cannabis dispensary.
Whenever something new like this comes along there is always going to be a certain amount of trepidation. For many the idea of buying their weed from an online dispensary is such an odd concept, it will take some getting used to. Furthermore, anyone willing to take the plunge is likely to be halted by the number of different online dispensaries out there. How do you discriminate between two competing businesses in a totally new marketplace? With little history, scant information and few reviews, it is hard to make a reliable evaluation.
This is the issue this article seeks to solve: to provide thorough, clear review of two online dispensaries to enable potential cannabis consumers to make a more informed choice. The two websites reviewed are Weedsmart and Serene Farms. Weedsmart.ca is one of the better known online dispensaries in Canada and attracts a large number of online shoppers. Serene Farms is a newer site with a reputation for being a cheaper option than many of its rivals. This article evaluates these two sites in terms of their security, reliability, product range, shipping and, of course, price.
As well as setting out a clear comparison of two online dispensaries, the article should also highlight some of the issues faced by cannabis consumers when they attempt to shop online.
