Did you know that there is (is — meaning is already open and operating), yes did you know that there already is an online store where you can purchase a $2 gram of the happy-making cannabis strain Chemdawg?
You can upgrade to $3 for sweet Berry OG or to $4 for energizing Chocolope. Or you can start to really spend big, and lay out a fiver on relaxing Rockstar cannabis strain or six whole bucks on tasty Girl Scout Cookies.
Or…. Or…. OR….. you can go NUTZ, pull out all the stops and bust the bank on a $7 gram of uplifting Super Jack! Given that $8 – $10 for a gram is generally taken to be an excellent price in most cannabis dispensaries, who is this online store and what is with these crazy prices?
The business is called FairCannaCare and I’m making a link for you right away because I want you to be able to see that it really does exist. In fact, they are based in Vancouver, Canada, and have locations in cities across the country.
They ship anywhere in Canada, but not outside the country at this time (sorry!). FairCannaCare operate in the grey zone of relaxed legislation and comment on their site that,
“City Hall and VPD (Vancouver Police) have allowed dispensaries to proliferate so people can safely access medicine, so long as there are no sales to minors or any gang affiliations.”
They also note that dispensaries have been doing this in Vancouver since the 1990s, so they have some solid historical ground to stand on. That said, FairCannaCare’s specifically medicinal mandate sets them firmly in the current trend that is revolutionizing cannabis and its use.
Their gig is to offer affordable weed to medicinal users and they list the various conditions that each strain can relieve. FairCannaCare also branches into other forms of cannabis medicinals to offer dinosaur gummies and concentrates.
For example, you can purchase a gram of Blue Dream concentrate for $25. And to round out the selection, for under ten a gram they have hash and kief, which is the medicinally rich dry sift from the cannabis flowers.
Do They Really Deliver the Dope?
FairCannaCare’s offerings are just in the developing stage, with new items being added regularly, all within their focus on an affordable price point.
At this time they have as much if not more choice than most walk-in dispensaries, but they are lean in comparison to online competitors. While their selection is varied and covers a lot of the bases concerning types of strains, you might find that your favorite is missing.
Undoubtedly you can grab it at another online store, but…. the price difference!
The thought came to mind that perhaps this is one of those scams where the product is offered for an impossibly cheap price, but the shipping bankrupts you. Not so, the shipping costs are no more than what you would expect and orders over $150 ship free.
Not only that, but veterans can apply for an additional 5% discount off the product they purchase. Shipping times can stretch a bit longer than their optimum estimate, but the goods do indeed arrive. And if you want to test it out at minimal risk, flip a toony their way and make an order.
But That’s Not All
Searching around the FairCannaCare site I came to a blog tag that offers site visitors a wealth of information on cannabis benefits, best strains, myths and tips. To give you a taste of this blog, some of the titles are:
- 6 Surprising Ways Weed Affects Men and Women Differently
- Best Marijuana Strains for Depression
- 8 Ways to Counter an Intense Cannabis High
- Best Marijuana Strains for Insomnia
I was impressed that the company would dedicate time to researching and writing educative materials. This additional step shows that FairCannaCare is not just out to make a quick buck from recreational users under the guise of medicinal use. Instead, they offer a total package of information and affordability to meet their mandate of serving those who seek cannabis as a medicine.
All is Not Perfect in Paradise
Yes, there is a downside and that appears to be the uneven quality. For example, four customers gave their kief two thumbs down, commenting that it did not look fresh and golden like the picture.
However, to their credit, FairCannaCare provide a 5 star rating system and seem to keep the comments up there, so you can actually make choices based on other people’s experience.
I want to take a moment here to note that this is a seriously important aspect of the site because everyone’s subjective experience of cannabis is different.
What is considered a weak strain of Lemon OG to one person, knocks the next person off their feet. There will be people ordering and commenting who are using the strength of the high as their only criteria when doing a FariCannaCare review, but medicinal use is more nuanced than that. Look at the star ratings, but also read through the comments because some user’s complaint might be exactly the characteristic that you prefer.
I’m going to say hats off to FairCannaCare for their aims and for what they have rolled out so far. As with the entire medicinal cannabis industry, this is still a diamond in the rough and I have already seen additions and improvements in the offerings.
If the quality of some strains does not meet your standards, consider that you probably just paid less than half of regular market price for the experience of trying it out.
However, people who are searching specifically for medicinal applications and do not want knock-out strains could find a lot to like about this online dispensary.
After all, if you require regular use, price is an issue that FairCannaCare has solved and it costs less than a fancy coffee to check them out.
