SparQ Toronto Overview:
SparQ Toronto is a unique dispensary focused on carrying top-notch strains, rather than an excessive selection. SparQ is discretely placed right on Yonge Street and has been there since the beginner of the 2017 summer, providing medicine to patients in need.
SparQ Toronto Location:
4905 Yonge St.
SparQ Toronto is conveniently located right on Yonge St. making it extremely accessible for patients in the area. When talking to the staff they mentioned they like to build a strong relationship with their customers. As a result, advice on medicating is given and often results in introducing a lot of the locals to dabs. Many of them hadn’t tried it before, but quickly become a fan. I really like how SparQ opened up in a new neighborhood, connected with the community and are helping to educate them.
SparQ Toronto Membership Access:
Membership to Sparq Toronto is open to everyone 19+. Staff will buzz you in, assess your qualifications and assist you with your purchase. SparQ isn’t a “recreational” dispensary, if you go in and talk about wanting to get high you will be refused a purchase.
SparQ Toronto Pricing & Selection:
SparQ focuses on carrying top quality strains rather than a large selection of products. They regularly have between 6 and 10 different strains retailing for $10 – $15/gram. SparQ also carries Dog Pound and RastaRozion concentrates for those interested. When speaking with SparQ, they are looking at expanding and carrying some glass as a headshop as well.
I selected some Blue Dream as it was advised it would help with Anxiety. The bud smelt very sweet and complex with citrus and winey notes. When consumed the Blue Dream it tasted and felt very clean with berry and sweet flavours covering your palate. The effects were as expected, slightly less hard hitting to ensure anxiety is avoided but still elevating you as a nice daytime smoke. Blue Dream is a great strain for new cannabis consumers of anxiety patients such as myself.
Unique to SparQ Toronto:
SparQ Toronto is a unique dispensary that isn’t trying to overwhelm their patients with an extreme variety of products, but rather specially selected products to ensure patient satisfaction. SparQ is also looking at carrying some glass pieces so it will have everything you need to smoke. SparQ also has an oilrig set up for those interested in trying a dab. Staff mentioned many patients in the area weren’t familiar with concentrates so educating individuals has been a big part of SparQ.
SparQ Toronto Staff:
Staff at SparQ were quite knowledgeable about their products, taking the time to explain things like concentrates and strain recommendations to their patients. I always recommend getting the budtenders recommendations/advice, as they should be the most knowledgeable about the products and point you in the right direction. The staff at SparQ were friendly and prompt to assist me on my visit.
