online bud sales

As the title says, do you have any experience ordering from online bud sales. I live in BC. Crop failures have left me in short supply. I have a medical license if that makes any difference. Thanks.

Wow! As a patient, you have no clue where to get bud, in a legalized country? Spark another brother!

ok

I am confused by your answer, what are you saying?
Are you saying I don't have a clue? if so, why?

If you are purchasing something for the first time don't you ever ask people for their opinions?

I am in my seventies, home bound with several health issues, have no visitors and get out very little. What is it that I should know? I have been using cannabis for 50 years.

And no, I don't spark anything because of asbestos in my lungs.

Bud is available at a myriad of places. There are medical dispensaries both online as well as brick and mortar, government controlled ones by the province.

That being said, there are a lot of sites (online) as well as dispensaries (both online/brick and mortar) which are run and controlled by the black market.

Having a medical card should ease the way for you. We have an ACS here (NS), that all you need is a valid drivers license. That site is totally illegal! I'm surprised it is still running, as several have been shut down since legalization.

Sorry for my previous reply but, you would be surprised what gets asked here. I could have posted are you serious? e.g you are in a legal country and you don't know where to get bud?

thanks for the reply

I am especially interested in online sales... like wholesalebud.ca or weedsmart.net. I find local cannabis retail expensive but the above mentioned places seem more reasonable in cost. I just don't have any experience with this type of business.

Somedays my age and health show and I get frustrated but thank you for your courteous reply.

I've used places like that in the past and had good experiences. The quality of the weed is the same as what you would get from your neighborhood dealer and probably better than the legally produced garbage. Most of the time I got what I was expecting based on the pictures and reviews. Never had any problems with service and delivery was prompt. Having said that I'll also say that since I started growing again I remember what really good weed is and I'll never be buying my herb from anyone ever again because it's mostly all garbage in comparison.

The resources for finding the black market dispensaries (MOMS - mail order marijuana store) are gradually shutting down as the police crack their whip. reddit r/CanadianMOMS used to be a good place to look but it is now blocked for most of Canada & you need a vpn connection to get in. Weedmaps still functions to see who is in your area but I heard that there is pressure on them as well. Instagram has become a home for many small vendors.

I made a couple of buys a few years ago from BC based vendors & they all went well. You send them some form of ID for age & money is sent via Interac. But you are buying from Internet pictures & you have to have faith.

The other source is Indigenous People's reserves. Many of them are selling cannabis along side illegal cigarettes. So depending on where you live this might be an option.

I left those out on purpose, with legalization the penalties for illegal cannabis activities are much more severe. All we need is some a$$hat on a power trip, trying to make a name for themselves.

You are right of course, but until the legal market catches up to the black market in terms of price, quality & selection, they are leaving that door open & the BM will still capture a nice chunk of the market.

Overpriced dry weed ruled in Legalization 1.0. I personally tried a lot of different samples while my first grow was underway & most of it I would not recommend or rebuy. At that time, I also sampled a number of goods from MOMS & it was: You get what you pay for. $99 oz were crap & the best stuff wasn’t cheap. But it was fresh & not a container of months-old dried crumbs like some of the LP weed. I haven’t bought LP or MOM weed for a few years now that I grow, but I have visited a reserve for imported hash occasionally & I can tell you that business was brisk. In the legal market, Legalization 2.0 added overpriced, weak & shitty edibles. And I won’t even get into the legal market’s offerings of seeds & clones . . . maybe Legalization 13.0 will get it right . . . unless the wrong Gov’t gets elected & dicks around with the rules & makes them worse than they are now . . .
