Canadians all know what legal cannabis stores look like in their communities but when it comes to ordering legal weed online the options can seem less clear.
Province to province, regulations vary. So while some provinces might enjoy the convenience of click-and-collect services or on-demand delivery, others don’t permit private retailers to deliver cannabis products making government-run retailers the sole provider of online cannabis ordering.
What you need to know about cannabis delivery in Canada
Medical cannabis in Canada is only available for online delivery through a Licensed Producer.
The following directory focuses solely on the adult-use (recreational) market for which Canadian provinces are each responsible for regulating delivery services.
While Canadians can expect shipping options and fees to vary, regardless of which province you order cannabis in, all delivery providers will require ID and/or a signature at the door to prove that the recipient is of age.
What you need to know about ordering cannabis for pick-up in Canada
Not all Canadian provinces permit pick-up (or click-and-collect) services. In New Brunswick, for instance, the provincially-run retailer offers its very own express service, while Alberta and Ontario are currently the only provinces to allow Leafly Pickup.
Check back periodically. We’ll update this list as more pick-up and delivery operators come online.
