The Growth of Online Cannabis Delivery in Canada

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought upon many changes, both positive and negative to our daily lives. One of the most prominent changes was made to the way businesses are conducted. While the transition to online businesses and e-commerce was already in progress, the global lockdown has accelerated the pace at which businesses needed to adapt their operations and bring their business online. It was a matter of survival for many businesses of a variety of industries, including cannabis.

As the majority of the population was forced to remain indoors, brick and mortar dispensaries were no longer desirable, and the need for online dispensaries intensified. Many people were already opting in to do their shopping online, as the convenience of having everything delivered to their doorstep without having to leave the house outweighed the potential dangers of making in-person trips for their daily necessities. The cannabis sector saw a huge spike in interest during the pandemic lockdown period, which opened up many doors of opportunity to online dispensaries. Those companies saw huge potential for growth not only in 2020 but in the coming years. Canada’s online cannabis businesses saw intense growth in the last year, generating the highest amounts of revenue historically, and continue to attract the interest of future customers, as the convenience of online cannabis delivery outshines that of traditional dispensaries.

What To Look For When Ordering Cannabis Online?

Before you consider ordering your cannabis via an online dispensary, however, it is important that you consider a few important things mentioned below.

Product Selection

As with any product, having a variety of choices to offer to customers is important. Before you consider buying cannabis from an online dispensary in Canada, first you need to find out whether they offer the products you are searching for. Are the products of good and reliable quality? Are there multiple strains available to suit your cannabis needs? Does the dispensary offer edibles and other cannabis products? Is the selection limited?

You should consider multiple dispensaries and find one that is able to meet all of your cannabis needs, not only the most convenient one but rather one that focuses on quality products and experience.

Shipping and Safety

If you are a person that values privacy, it is important to shop at a dispensary that offers discreet and smell-proof packaging and shipping options. Is the shipping fast and discreet, ensuring that you not only receive fresh products but also prevent curious neighbors from snooping on your favorite past-time?

Before you shop at an online dispensary, find one that values the privacy and protection of its customers by investing the time and resources to provide fast and safe packaging and shipping.


While higher price usually indicates higher quality, price gauging has become extremely popular during the lockdown. Many businesses saw the pandemic as an opportunity to raise prices on common goods to exploit desperate customers. When shopping for online cannabis delivery, ensure that the price you are paying is due to the quality of the product you are receiving. Do the due diligence of comparing multiple online dispensaries, their products, and prices. Always ensure you are receiving your money’s worth and aren’t falling a victim to price hikes.
