On October 17th, 2018 Canadians throughout the country celebrated a significant moment in history…the government finally legalized recreational marijuana nationwide! Citizens celebrated by lighting up, throwing 420-inspired parties, and chowing down some delicious edibles. Not only is recreational use of marijuana legal, residents can even grow up to four personal plants within their home, and they can continue to access an ACMPR license to grow tons of medicinal plants with approval from the government.
If you are excited about these new laws throughout the provinces but don’t have the pleasure of living in the Maple Leaf country, book a plane ticket to see what all the hype is about. Even if you are a Canadian wanting to visit another province and experience a new side of your home nation that you haven’t seen before, go for a little trip. Here are the best cities in Canada that every weed smoker should visit. So pack your bongs, rolling papers, lighters, vaporizers, and whatever else you need to enjoy some of the best cannabis in the world.
If big cities are your preference for travelling to new spots, be sure to check out Toronto. It is the largest city in Canada and people from all over the world flock here to see what Canada has to offer. Since it is such a big city, the nightlife scene here is outrageous and there are tons of good restaurants and bars to choose from. In terms of smoking weed, you won’t be disappointed. Light up a joint and stroll through High Park – ironic name, eh? – if the weather is permitting. The park is home to plenty of green space, a lake, and even colorful cherry blossom trees during the warm months. Be sure to check out the Toronto strain of choice, OG Kush.
Vancouver, British Columbia
British Columbia is known for being the province that is that largest producer of cannabis in all of Canada, so it makes sense that its largest city of Vancouver has some of the best strains and top smoking spots. Walking through the city streets you are sure to pass by a dispensary or two – or rather one hundred – and although purchasing from these shops can become pricey the quality of the cannabis makes it completely worth it. You’ll even be able to find establishments that are weed-friendly and allow you to enjoy your joint in public. While here be sure to try the famous strain known as Girl Scout Cookies
If you choose to visit Montreal in Quebec you’ll feel like you’re walking through a charming French town. The French-inspired province is known as being the cultural mecca of Canada and is home to some of the trendiest shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes. If you want a mix of rich culture, delicious food and drinks, and some quality weed you’ll really enjoy this city. People have been smoking here for decades even though it has just been officially legalized – be sure to try the popular M39 strain here when you visit.
