Buying weed online in Canada, Bud Lab Blog Banner

You can buy everything online nowadays. Weed is now no exception. With retailers like Bud Lab offering all types of products to consumers at the click of a button, it sure seems like we’re entering the golden age for couch stoners.

With the wide breadth of selection, crazy low prices, and simple & secure delivery, there’s hardly a downside to buying weed online vs. in-store. The main hang-up that consumers face is that it almost seems too good to be true. People think that the retailers will be unscrupulous or that somehow they will be taking advantage of, this couldn’t be further from the truth!

In this article, we’re going to take you through a few key things to keep in-mind when ordering cannabis online.

Where is Acceptable to Buy Weed Online

It’s important that whenever you’re searching for cannabis online, you look for somewhere that is an actual legal business entity. It’s risky to buy from people on Craigslist or other classifieds. This can be ripe for crackdowns and fines. If you’re going to buy weed online you’ve got to make sure it’s coming from someone who is 100% legit.

Although weed is legal for medicinal use, the black market is still thriving. Hence, the reason why you need to be very comfortable with whomever you’re buying from. Also, keep in-mind the old rule of if something seems too good to be true, usually it is. Don’t put yourself in a dangerous or risky spot for a few ounces of weed.

Be Educated Before Shopping Online

This goes for most things when buying online, but it’s especially important when shopping for cannabis. It’s key you know strain information (Sativa vs. Indica, etc), as well as a general understanding of an acceptable price for what you’re looking for.

At the end of the day, it’s important to do your homework. Read reviews, etc. Google it and see what others have to say. Find out the legitimacy of the site and once you’re finally totally comfortable, then pull the trigger on a purchase, but only once you’re fully comfortable.

Make Sure You’re Getting the Product You Need

If you’re looking for a very specific product while shopping for marijuana online, make sure you know what questions to ask and what to look for. Don’t buy weed online if you don’t know exactly what it is you’re purchasing. Overall, this just comes down to knowing what you’re buying. Remember, that the internet is made up of lots of websites that make false claims, so this leads back to the previous point about reading reviews and other customer feedback.

Staying Safe Buying Online

Don’t be scared off by the headline, but this is an important, albeit easy thing to do when buying weed online. There’s literally no reason you should get ripped off or have a bad experience buying cannabis over the web. Stay vigilant and feel free to reach out to websites before buying their products. If they’re a reputable site, they’ll be incredibly happy to hear from you and to help you out!

If you do it right, the weed buying experience online should be a fun and eye-opening experience for you. The worst part of ordering online is waiting for delivery. Unlike the rest of the process that will literally take 5 minutes, delivery should be about 3-5 days, a short amount of time time all-considered.


  1. budlab.co has the slowest delivery of anyone and disregards all your notes when placing an order. It’s been 6 days and i have no idea where my $400 order is still. And this is only happening because they couldn’t follow directions. i will repost when i finally get them, if I do and let you know about the quality. I can tell you now that every other company out there has better customer service. The last one i dealt with Medicanna Express actually phoned me to inform me that the tincture drops I ordered were out but that they would send me out a higher strength at no extra cost. Heck pick anyone else and it will get to you at least.

    • Hi Dwayne,

      Your package delivered today, 3 business days after we shipped it. I think we can do without the rude accusations. Monday was a holiday in BC, so there was a one day delay in getting it to you…. 3 days…. not bad in our opinion. But as you say, “budlab.co is the slowest”…. I think you need to take some of that primo kush and hit it ASAP.

  2. Pretty! This was a really wonderful post. Thank you for providing these details.
