Walking into GreenCity marijuana dispensary in the heart of Downtown Vancouver is a unique experience, even in a city that once boasted more dispensaries than Tim Hortons (Canada’s largest coffee chain with five times the gross sales of Starbucks).
Looking more like a quaint gift-shop than a marijuana dispensary, GreenCity considers itself ‘an upscale provider of Cannabis’, carrying locally grown indoor Quad-A cannabis which has been tested for pesticides and harmful chemicals.
The More You Know: Quad AAAA Cannabis
The terms ‘Quad’ & ‘AAAA’ refer to strains that hold a perfect score in each of the 4 primary marijuana characteristics: smell, texture, burn, and taste.
The staff at GreenCity were warm, welcoming and, most importantly, knowledgeable about their product and were quick to offer advice on the best strains for anxiety, depression, sleep and pain, as well as explain the benefits of various consumption methods such as vaping, dabbing, and CBD capsules.
Although the selection of products was far smaller than at some of the larger dispensaries in Vancouver, the quality of everything we sampled was incredible, notably the Watermelon Haze (Sativa) and Blueberry (Indica) flower strains as well as the O’Canadab Solvent-Free Flower Rosin.
GreenCity Dispensary also had a wide array of cannabis capsules, marijuana concentrates, portable vaporizers, and pre-rolled joints.
The atmosphere in the shop was friendly and laid-back and seemed like a perfect fit for a first-time buyer looking to explore and ask questions without feeling rushed or embarrassed.
