Opening Day of Legalization  “Lisa, I’m in the parking lot with my wife, I’m having a panic attack, I’ve never had one before and I don’t know what’s happening.” This was what my manager said to me less than 24-hours before my store, one of Ontario’s first legal cannabis stores, opened in June of 2019.  The Back Story  The timeline from the announcement that I’d won the lottery to the approval of the license took from mid January to the end of April. That’s 3.5 months that I was stressed to the max and crying multiple times a day that I was gonna lose everything I invested to ge ..read more

The Big Picture  5 years in and it’s a perfect time to reflect on the good, the bad and the ugly of legal weed. It seems like only yesterday that, after decades of prohibition, cannabis was declared legal in Canada! But hold up—before we get into all that let’s start with some gratitude for living in a country with the courage to legalize weed. It’s not a perfect model, by any means, but there’s one statistic that should shine above all others in this conversation:  In 2017, 16,697 Canadians were arrested for cannabis related offences. In the two years following legalization that num ..read more

Understanding this shift requires a look back at the evolution of cannabis use and technology over the past few decades. Let’s start with the basics: Vaping is the act of inhaling vapour produced by a device called a vaporizer or vape pen. Unlike traditional sm ..read more

Woosh there goes another year!  Before we get into all the numbers, events and people we want to highlight in our Stok’d Cannabis Year in Review, we want to start with you.  Yes, you.  Beyond being a cool South Western Ontario independent cannabis brand (if we do say so ourselves ) we strive to be a community.  Not in a culty, weird way like when your corny boss says “we’re all family here” before he lays you off before the holidays. We say community in a way that you genuinely feel like we care about you beyond what you purchase. Because we do. So yeah, we want to start b ..read more

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with Adam Coates, chief revenue officer for Decibel Cannabis. The company is home to iconic brands like Qwest and General Admission. We spoke to Adam about the meteoric rise of General Admission, how they got to be one of Canada’s most popular brands and where they’re going next. Edited for clarity and length  Stok’d: What’s the backstory of General Admission (GA)?  Adam: It’s funny because General Admission is sort of a “little engine that could” in a lot of ways. It kind of started in 2020 when General Admission was just something off to th ..read more

Wow we’ve finally made it to November and the end to another fabulous outdoor growing season. For most of us in the Northern Hemisphere this means that if we want to keep growing our own fire weed, we need to move indoors. It seems like the perfect time to dig into the eternal debate of what’s better, indoor weed or outdoor weed? Of course if you’re a true fan of Mary Jane, the answer is “why not both?” And we completely agree. However there are major differences in both quality, cost and environmental impact so it’s worth digging into don’t you think?  Now we aren’t the experts in growin ..read more

The Stok’d Guide To Green Gifting: Top Cannabis Picks for the 2023 Holiday Season

Seriously another f—ng holiday gift guide?!   We know what you’re thinking: Oh boy here we go again with another holiday cannabis gift guide! We get it, we’re kind of burnt out on these guides too. Most of them are pay-to-play. For example, Chatelaine’s list reads like a menu approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange because they made it for their “partners in [corporate] cannabis”. That is to say they were paid to include certain products. We aren’t picking on this publication, you’ll see similar (with even less transparency) games being played across the industry this time of year.&n ..read more
