The Relief Center Overview:
I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at The Relief Center dispensary. Staff were extremely friendly and talkative. They also provided me with my new favorite indica strain in Toronto, Chemo Candy. It helps immensely with any sleep issues you may have, putting you right to sleep.
The Relief Center Location:
328 Queen St. E. (Queen & Parliament)
The Relief Center dispensary is located on Queen St. E. at Parliament St. This can be reached via a short streetcar ride from Queen Station. If you prefer to drive, you should be able to find parking on a side street close to The Relief Center.
The Relief Center Membership Access:
To register to be a patient at The Relief Center you will need to present government ID to prove you are 19+. Your ID (and medical diagnosis if available) will be scanned to keep on file. The Relief Center has no cards for their members, just bring your ID in with you on your next visit and you wont have any issues. If you have a non-registered friend with you, they can enter the budroom, but may not approach the counter to make a purchase.
The Relief Center Pricing & Selection:
The Relief Center dispensary had six different strains available when I visited. Buds were priced at $10/gram with tax included, and all strains looked very well cured and trimmed. The Chemo Candy looked great, with lots of purple jutting out, so I selected it to give it a try. The Relief Center had two different types of shatter, one kind of hash and phoenix tears for their patients.
The Relief Center’s Chemo Candy:
Chemo Candy is by far my favorite indica in the city at the moment. I find Toronto lacks Purple Kush and other strong insomnia reducing strains. Chemo Candy helped fill this void. The nugs were half purple and half green with a great crystal covering. Right away from looking at the bud I knew it would be exceptional, this is one of the prettiest medical marijuana strains I’ve seen in Toronto.
I knew this strain would have great medical value so I saved it for when it was needed. It came in hand the last few days leading up to the Karma Cup Judge’s Kit pick up. As the anticipations of what the Judge’s Kit would hold grew, I used the Chemo Candy to sleep at night. The strain worked wonders, I never had any issues falling asleep, ensuring I was well rested to judge. If you have issues falling asleep I highly recommend trying Chemo Candy from The Relief Center!
Unique to The Relief Center:
I was really impressed by the staff of The Relief Center, they were extremely knowledgeable about the industry and were able to share a lot about what was going on. The staff were well versed with the medical marijuana strains they had on hand. I was also extremely impressed by the Chemo Candy I purchased, it was a true indica, helping me sleep without a problem. I have found many indica strains in Toronto dispensaries don’t provide the intense sleep inducing effects I look for at night. Chemo Candy ensured me that if you look hard enough you will find some great indica strains.
The Relief Center Staff:
Staff were very friendly and talkative when I first entered the dispensary, sharing their cannabis knowledge. When I entered the budroom, the staff used this knowledge to direct me to a strain that would help me sleep. If you can’t tell by now, the strain I got was amazing and the friendly customer service will ensure I keep coming back.
