We live in a technologically advanced world where anything can be instantly wrapped and shipped to our doorstep with a touch of a button, so why not weed? Like any online purchase, there is always a sense of uncertainty of whether what’s been purchased online is everything you hoped it to be. Weed is no exception. Here are a few tips on how you can make the best out of your online experience.
Know what you Want (Do Your Research)
This may be obvious for some, but it may not be as intuitive for a beginner or first-time buyer. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the wide selections of strains and cannabis products, you may have the option to speak to your seller for recommendations but first read some blog posts and get informed.

There are two types of commonly known strains to familiarize yourself with – Indica and Sativa. The words for the two different strains “indica” and “sativa” were introduced in the 18th century to describe different species of cannabis: Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica.
The cannabis Indica plants are usually shorter in statue with broad leaves and have a wider yield than the sativa. The Indica is much more suitable for colder climates.
- More of body-centered high
- Relaxes muscles, decreases nausea and acute pain
- Good for a night of relaxation
The Sativa is taller with long narrow leaves and better suited for warm climates.
- A mind-centred high
- Invigorating, boosts day, stimulates the mind, alleviates anxiety, headaches and migraines for a good day
- Perfect for creative work
Hybrids are just that – the best of both worlds. You get an even high that gives you some relaxation but also good for creativity and energy.
Nobody really knows why the different strains provide a different experience, but hopefully we can anticipate more research and answers after the recent normalization of cannabis in our society.

Is there Customer Service?
With any online distributor, we value the opportunity to resolve any unforeseeable issues with our purchased products. While you browse through various online distributors, check to see if their website offers their contact information- an email, phone number, anything. Many users have opted for online dispensaries as a long-term solution to obtaining their weed supply. Having said this, there is plenty of great online dispensaries that can meet your needs.
If you’re someone who is attracted to the convenience of having weed delivered right to your doorstep, pick up the phone and give a test call to the distributor or email them a question and see how fast they respond. While this may seem a bit tedious and time consuming at first, it can actually save a lot of headache down the line.
Types of Transactions.
While some online dispensaries accept credit or PayPal, the majority only use e-transfers as their only method of payment. This is may be a concern for the first-time buyer as e-transfers is a one-way transaction. The first defence you can take to avoid getting scammed out of your money is to find reviews on the online dispensaries. Most reputable cannabis and marijuana stores can be found on Google. Before purchasing read the reviews to see what people are saying about the online store. Another suggestion is to search on public threads like Reddit or Quora to verify with other users on where they have shopped.
What About Packaging?
Cannabis shipping has been safely regulated by the government since 2013. Ensure that the online store you purchase from has good security and can be trusted. Ensure that the online store is transparent with an email address and a phone number so you are able to contact them if needed.
