Cannabis retail chain Canna Cabana, a subsidiary of publicly traded company High Tide, hooked up with Ontario lottery winner Dana Michele Kendal to launch Canna Cabana Toronto at Yonge and College.
Placed conveniently along the Yonge subway line and replacing a former California Sandwiches location, the store is approximately 1,600 square feet and is hard to miss from the street.
Following Canna Cabana’s signature aesthetic, this cosmopolitan cannabis store has maximized space and puts dried flower front and centre.
The store boasts a sleek, streamlined look with a few tropical motifs employed strategically throughout the store.
Stylish bongs and other accessories line the walls but cannabis is the main attraction. A trio of glass-topped tables show off a range of dried flower options organized by indica, sativa, and hybrid.
Almost every strain in store is showcased in a “sensory jar,” where buds are strategically held in place under a magnifying lens so consumers can take a closer look.
Store staff are eager to help customers make selections as they stroll into the store, but those that prefer a self-serve experience can browse display cases stocked with products in their original packaging, inspect sample bud specimens, or view the scrolling menu displayed on TV screens.
Ordering and purchasing happens at a counter positioned at the back of the store.
Products & Pricing
The store offers products from a number of producers including Canopy (LBS, Tweed), Aurora (Aurora and San Rafael), Aphria (RIFF, Solei, Good Supply, and premium brand Broken Coast), CannTrust (Synr.g), Organigram (Trailblazer and Edison), and Flowr.
