Vancouver has been a staple in the Canadian cannabis industry since the early 2000s with the introduction of coffee shops long before the federal Cannabis Act on October 17th 2018. The favourable climate surrounding the Rockies made for a perfect environment for exterior grow-ups back in the 80s and 90s. Now if you are 19 years of age you can legally stroll in a legal dispensary across British Columbia and purchase various cannabis products. The cannabis culture has been deeply entrenched in Vancouver’s society for a long time already, and lots of the industry’s giants have already set up shop in BC’s coastal city.

We, at Leafythings, have put together a list of the best and most popular dispensaries in the city of Vancouver. Rather than ranking them in a chronological order, we will present them in an objective way so that you, the consumers, can make an informed decision for your choice of establishment to visit for your next cannabis purchase.
