There are a lot of choices out there today in the online dispensary world. But how do you choose what’s best? What do you need to know before you pick one, what should you look out for? In this article, we go into detail all the things you need to take into consideration before making your decision.


The only companies that are legally allowed to sell Cannabis products in Canada are those that hold a license to do so. They differentiate themselves from the illegal market by referring to themselves as Licensed Producers or LP’s for short. In today’s market, this may not seem like such a big deal to a lot of cannabis consumers but it is. Regulation is what keeps you safe from those who wish to exploit you for profit or from those who don’t care to produce a safe product. Your personal information is extremely vulnerable with an online dispensary and only licensed producers are approved to handle that info safely.


Having access to licensed producers matters more than most people think, especially when it comes to consistency. Street level dispensaries are known to engage in a bait and switch style approach to the products they stock. The majority is a black market so there’s no accountability to consumers and product quality can vary significantly from week to week even though it’s branded as the same cannabis.


We understand every person has a wide range of taste for a number of different reasons and you want to know someone is there 24/7/ 365 days a year and that they care about your needs. Our open marketplace will enable growers to do what they do best: GROW. When you try out a new strain from a grower and it’s some of the best you’ve ever had, you’re going to share it with everyone you know. Our marketplace will enable this mutually beneficial environment for both consumers and licensed growers to foster a positive and respectful community with their customers.


One of the most important issues for cannabis consumers is quality. If you’re wanting high THC content, choose an online dispensary with quality THC product. Cannabis is itself a hardy plant but getting the full potential out of it is somewhat of an art form. Growing safe and clean Cannabis is unquestionable. But illegal dispensaries could be buying from growers that use pesticides such as Myclobutanil, Avermectin, or Etoxazole, and legal LP’s might cut corners. These are things you DO NOT want in your body. We believe there is no need for chemical pesticides with today’s knowledge of natural pest controls. Everything should be tested for chemical fertilizers, hormones, and fungicides. We’re cannabis users too and we don’t want these industrial chemicals in our bodies either.


We believe the best way to produce top quality cannabis is to support small batch, independent growers. Small boutique batches get the attention to detail they need to make sure they are clean, safe and of the highest quality possible. Big market producers operate on massive quantity to satisfy their shareholders, often cutting corners to increase profits. This is exactly what we don’t want for our community and making sure the smaller independent growers always have a marketplace to showcase their amazing products is what Primo is all about.


Delivery time is also really important for many different reasons, namely satisfaction and freshness! Nobody likes stale weed that arrives two weeks late… especially if you depend on it as your source of medicine.
