What Do I Need to Do to Buy Cannabis?

The minimum age of 19 qualifies you to visit our recreational cannabis store. The Ontario Government’s rules prevent anyone younger from buying cannabis, and strict enforcement makes it possible. We welcome you to shop our online menu, select your favorite items and place an order. You can find dried flower, pre-rolls, vapes, edibles and beverages, oils, capsules, and accessories for your shopping convenience. We notify you via email when we complete your order, and we require an ID and your payment when you pick it up. Our hours of operation let you reach us Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 12 to 5 Sunday. While our Ottawa dispensary remains closed now, we can promptly fill your orders and serve you with curbside pickup and delivery.

Where Can I Use My Recreational Cannabis?

The rules of common courtesy apply to areas where you can use cannabis. Allowable locations include your home and others’ private residences as well as designated smoking rooms in hotels and motels. You can smoke and vape in most outdoor public places such as parks and sidewalks. In some cases, you can use cannabis on parked or anchored boats and RVs if they have cooking and sleeping areas. You can find a list of places where you cannot use it here.

How Much Can I Buy?

A generous 30 grams or approximately 1 ounce of dried cannabis from our cannabis store gives you a choice of various equivalents. While it may seem small, it equals 5 grams of fresh cannabis or 15 grams of our edible products. In a liquid form, 70 grams amounts to the same amount as 30 dried grams. The highly concentrated solid or liquid 0.25 grams equates to 30 dried, and one cannabis plant seed gives you the same amount as well.

What Guidelines Apply to Cannabis Edibles and Beverages?

The legal use of edibles disqualifies them from containing nicotine or added alcohol. Other than that, a single package of edible cannabis products from our cannabis store may contain up to 10 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Plus, if the caffeine occurs naturally, such as in coffee, chocolate, or tea, it may have 30 milligrams. Our cannabis store offers soft chews in blueberry lavender, grapefruit and raspberry flavors, and many more in our chocolate line. You can find a selection of sparkling beverages that feature mango passionfruit CBD, sparkling grapefruit water, and sparkling lemon water. Our customers who prefer not to inhale smoke can enjoy our line of edibles and beverages.

Which Products Do Most People Prefer?

We find that customers who enjoy using cannabis in the traditional way prefer our flower and pre-rolls. Our extensive line of flower includes favorites that keep customers coming back, and we hope to please you with them too. Our Highly Dutch and Houseplant lines have dedicated followers, and the Edison product continues to satisfy. You can find sales that make shopping at our Ottawa dispensary always a pleasure. Our Ace Valley and Pure Sunfarms pre-rolls become favorites for many of our regular customers, and the Tweed line of products has loyal devotees too. Our concentrates eliminate everything except the straight cannabinoids and terpenes to provide the cleanest experience. We carry many vape cartridges from Ace Valley, Good Supply, and San Rafael, along with special flavors from Hexo, Sundial, and Wayfarer that may deserve your attention.

Why Do Cannabis Stores Call Themselves Dispensaries?

The old-fashioned name may come from the medical dispensaries that first sold cannabis. At our cannabis store, we do not sell anything but recreational products, and we have no connection to medical cannabis. When you say that you want to “find a weed shop near me,” you can find our Cannabis Dispensary in Richmond near Ottawa. We are retailers, and we welcome you to shop at our convenient location. When you place an order, we start to put it together immediately. We use your email address to let you know when we complete it. A drive-by to Gather and Grow at 6179 Perth St., Unit 220 allows us to provide curbside service for you, a check of your ID as we collect your payment.

Do You Have Any Recommendations for Newbies?

We agree with experts who recommend 10-15 mg if you have not used cannabis edibles before. A plan to take it easy and follow some suggestions can help you enjoy your first experience. You can prepare your stomach by eating something within a half-hour before you begin. Edibles do not produce an immediate effect, and you need to wait at least an hour for them to have an impact. Patience counts as an essential factor in your approach, and it pays off as you learn. Make sure to let at least three hours pass after your first dose before you dose again. You can expect a high that can last from 6-12 hours from ingesting edibles, and the possibility exists that proceeding without care can help cause you to eat too much.

Choosing Accessories to Enhance Experience

A favorite in our line of accessories in our Ottawa dispensary, the Ace Valley – Sativa 510 Thread Cartridge Starter Kit – 0.45g includes a rechargeable battery. The popular gelato strain gives it an enjoyable and potent formulation. When a friend asks you, “where can I find a weed shop near me,” you can suggest Gather & Grow at 6179 Perth St., Unit 220. The accessories in our Cannabis Dispensary give new customers a welcome introduction to our line of products.

Another preferred choice of our Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer by XVape – Black provides a discreet way to enjoy vapor on the go. With five temperature settings, it offers the precision that many customers prefer. The product includes everything you need for a complete experience of use and maintenance. We offer a Choice Leaf Medium Rolling Tray – Mint Palm that provides a smooth, flat surface to make rolling easier. Also, from Choice Leaf, we carry the pre-rolled cones that they produce by hand. As an alternative to tobacco for adult smokers who want something different, it offers an excellent choice. Each cone contains up to 2 grams. You can always expect something new to try in our extensive line of accessories.

How Do Sativa and Indica Differ?

Customers at our Ottawa dispensary give us their opinions about the effects of both species of cannabis, but the research does not provide support for the ideas. We provide the finest and highest quality products for our customers, and our site lists the content of each selection. However, the differences that we hear expressed most often indicate that Sativa works best for daytime use and Indica for night use. The reasons that support the opinions come from the energy boost, increase in focus, and lessening of depression that Sativa provides. On the other hand, the capacity of Indica to act as a sedative, stimulate appetite, and relieve pain makes it preferable for some customers.

The high that Indica produces seems flat and relaxing, but some customers find Sativa relaxing as well. The more common description of Sativa features its energizing capacity and enhancement of creativity. Our customers choose it to help prevent nausea and loss of appetite, headaches, and depression. Still, research does not provide support for the opinions that customers share with us.
