Cannabis Culture Overview:
Cannabis Culture Church dispensary is a great location, they have lots of different strains on hand and a vape lounge allowing for pot smoking on site. There is also a large diversity of cannabis products including hash, shatter and creams, all available at 461 Church Street.
Cannabis Culture Church Street Location:
461 Church Street
Cannabis Culture dispensary is just a few blocks South East of Wellesley Station, making it very easy to reach for all TTC riders. The church location also has a vape lounge so you can relax and sample some of the cannabis you just purchased. This is something I like to do when I get some bud, a quick taste test, and if you really like it, you can get more. I wouldn’t recommend driving, but if you aren’t going to be smoking you can find parking close by.
Cannabis Culture Membership Access:
Cannabis Culture dispensary welcomes anyone 19+ into their store to make a purchase. This is one of the simplest registration/approval processes for a Toronto dispensary, with no information or records being kept. Storefronts like this is how the owner, Marc Emery, want to see the legalization of weed happen. Like many other clinics in Toronto, Cannabis Culture wants to legalize cannabis and their dispensaries are their form of activism, pushing legalization forward.
Cannabis Culture Pricing & Selection:
I was really surprised by the large selection of cannabis available with 20+ different strains on display. Each labeled with strain name, THC % range, indica/hybrid/sativa percent, the price with tax breakdown, and some more info. The different strains ranged from $10 – $14 per gram, tax included which is mid-high for Toronto prices. Cannabis Culture had a variety of hash and concentrate, with hash going for $15-$20/gram and concentrates starting at $50/gram. There are also a variety of cannabinoid infused creams and salves made by MJ Creams with sample sizes going for $5 and $55 for large containers.
Cannabis Culture’s Strain Jack Herer:
I’ve had Jack Herer before and really enjoyed it so when I saw it in stock before their comedy show I knew to pick it up. I got a gram for $10 tax included; it burnt to a grey ash and was quite smooth. It provided a clear mental stimulation that turned into a sedative effect after awhile. Jack Herer is a great uplifting strain, one I’d recommend using for daytime medication.
Unique to Cannabis Culture:
Cannabis Culture operates their dispensaries how they would like to see legalization implemented in Canada. They sell cannabis to anyone 19+ and offer a comfortable atmosphere if you chose to consume your purchase, in their vapor lounge on site. Cannabis Culture, Church, is now hosting weekly (Wednesday, 9pm) comedy shows, which started in November, 2016. If you are lucky you may be able to meet one of the many large Canadian activists that work there. This includes Jodie and Marc Emery, along with Chris and Erin Goodwin, just to name a few. Cannabis Culture has started doing some lab testing, but specific percent’s weren’t posted for available strains.
Cannabis Culture Staff:
I find the staff at Cannabis Culture to be hit or miss. If you are a regular cannabis user and have a preference for indica, hybrids, or sativas you wont have any issues. If you are new to cannabis, with a medical condition and are looking for recommendations to help your ailment, some budtenders may have issues helping you. If you are just a casual cannabis consumer, Cannabis Culture will be able to help you, but it is not ideal for medical patients seeking advice.
