Inside Ontario Cannabis Stores:
We’ve included a link below to the OCS online store.
Visit the government-run Ontario Cannabis Store web site, www.ocs.ca to order legal cannabis for delivery to your doorstep.
Visitors to the site must enter their birth date to verify they’re at least 19 years old. A flat $5 fee will be included with every order to cover the cost of delivery by Canada Post. Upon delivery, age ID will be verified again, and a signature required.
Customers who aren’t home to receive delivery will get a slip to pick it up at a Canada Post outlet. ID will be required at the Canada Post outlet, too. Packages will not be left on porches or doorsteps, or with building concierges.
Payment can be made only with Visa or MasterCard. The word “cannabis” will not appear on the credit card statement.
But Wait, There’s More
In addition to the provincially regulated outlets, there are a handful of First Nations cannabis stores about 150 km east of Toronto, on the Alderville First Nation Reserve. They currently operate as medical cannabis dispensaries in a complicated legal environment that involves questions of jurisdiction and tribal sovereignty stretching back decades. Those stores along the Alderville “Green Mile” are expected to expand to recreational sales for adults 19 and older starting Oct. 17, 2018.
There are also two First Nations stores on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory near Shannonville, which operate in a similar environment.
We’ve included them all in the table below for informational purposes.
Leafly’s Bruce Barcott visited the First Nations stores along Alderville’s Green Mile on Oct. 18, and found them all to be open and doing a brisk business. Bonus for those who make the trip: The First Nations stores are selling edibles and shatter, as well as a variety of other cannabis products. Please consult your budtender and heed them carefully when purchasing edibles. There are some super-high potency products out there, and nobody enjoys riding out an over-consumption.
