Queens of Cannabis Overview:
Queens of Cannabis was by far the most impressive dispensary I’ve been in so far, in my attempt to try each dispensary in the GTA. Queens of Cannabis offers massages and how-to class to satisfy each patients needs. The atmosphere is very professional and inviting. The buds range from $10-$15, but you can same money by reusing your childproof containers. I was extremely impressed by Queens of Cannabis!
Queens of Cannabis Location:
848 Bloor St. West (Bloor and Ossington)
Queens of Cannabis only have one location, located at 848 Bloor St. W. This is not the easiest dispensary to reach, but I was in the neighbourhood. The store is located a 2 minute walk from Ossington station. It took a little while to get my paper work filled out, but after that everything went really quickly. They were very helpful and answered a lot of questions about the products.
Queens of Cannabis Membership Access:
Membership access is restricted to MMPR and MMAR members. Unfortunately they do not offer a naturopath root to membership. If you have your MMPR or MMAR forms, then there are a few pages to read and sign. After that, you are free to make your purchase.
Queens of Cannabis Pricing & Selection:
Pricing was on the expensive end of the scale with prices ranging from $10-$15/gram tax included. They had 15 different strains on site, with small glass display jars and a card describing each product. When asking to look at a strain you will be presented with a large TightVac container to look at and smell. If you are happy with your selection they will then weigh out your amount into an opaque childproof container. This is the first dispensary I’ve been to in person that does this. The individual helping you will fill out a sticker with their logo, your name, strain, quantity, and a 1-year expiration date. Queens of Cannabis also offers $20/gram hash, Pixie phoenix tears and shatter. Shatter was $55/gram tax included.
Queens of Cannabis also offer a wide variety of non-cannabis products from Leafly information packets, Weedmap shirts, jewelry and therapeutic massage tools. They also offer how-to classes and message appointments on site, schedules are on Facebook. Queens of Cannabis offers cannabis seeds from King Crop Seeds, which are legal for any individual to purchase & possess.
Unique to Queens of Cannabis:
New members will receive a free pre-rolled joint upon signing up with Queens of Cannabis. This joint also appeared to be hand rolled rather than using a cone like many other dispensaries do. Queens of Cannabis also offers a free Weedmaps t-shirt or hat when you leave a dispensary review. They also dispense medication in plastic opaque containers with company logo, your name, strain, amount of product and a 1-year expiration date. I was really happy by this because all previous dispensaries I’ve visited package in plastic baggies. These baggies will squish and not protect your buds.
Queens of Cannabis Staff:
The two owners were on site when I visited and both were knowledgeable about the products. I left full of knowledge with no unanswered questions. Queens of Cannabis were also able to shed light on how sites like Weedmaps work and operate. Overall very polite and extremely professional!
