It’s probably the weirdest 4-20 in Canada. We go to weed stores to get our greens and get our groceries delivered — I remember when it was the other way around! Speaking of fond memories, we’re kicking the month off with a special on Qwest‘s Pre‑98 Bubba Kush.
Kick 4-20 off by reminiscing about the good ole days, when TP was plentiful and weed was illegal (and now, we’re an essential service 😂) The flavour in each 1 gram pre-roll is a serious blast to the past and oh, so smooth.
About Pre-98 Bubba Kush
THE original, old school Bubba Kush got its start in the mid-’90s and quickly became a favourite for indica lovers with its sticky denseness. The popularity of Bubba Kush meant that, over time, the strain’s genetics became diluted. Re-enter Pre‑98 Bubba Kush. It takes you back to the original mid-’90s undiluted strain that launched the legend.
Enthusiasts prefer the Pre 98 because of its pure genetics. This cultivar is for people who like the old school Cali Kush flavour. If you think you’ve had Bubba Kush, Qwest’s Pre‑98 Bubba Kush is a wonderful reminder that you haven’t.
Qwest is premium (we could even say “luxury”) BC bud in all its glory.
A few factoids:
All their grows are small-batch grown, allowing Qwest to give each plant the specific care she needs
The fanciest water. Like, ever:
“Our plants are nourished by pure glacial mountain water which runs naturally through the Qwest Cannabis Estate. A true gift from nature, this water happens to be perfectly pH balanced to the level that cannabis thrives on.”
It’s been a long few days (anyone else struggling to keep a child educated and occupied?).
Amid all the chaos, we wanted to let you know what’s going on at daikoku, and to reassure you that business, for the most part, remains as usual. And that we have a healthy inventory of dried bud, vapes, edibles – even soft chews! – oils and caps.
Our plan is to have Daikoku remain open from 10 AM to 9:30 PM daily.
However, as of Thursday, March 19th, 2020, we will be instituting special hours:
From 10 AM to 11 AM, the store will be closed to the general public, and open exclusively for customers who are immunocompromised or who are over 60 years old.
(We won’t ID you or ask for your doctor’s note; this is an honour system, after all. We simply ask for your help and cooperation in this matter.)
We took the decision to stay open with our regular hours after discussions with our staff and taking into consideration the effect that shorter hours might have on in-store foot traffic, especially with regards to density. We also want to try and keep normalcy going for as long as possible, for you and for our team.
It goes without saying that we sanitize regularly. We’re also very lucky in the fact that the store is very large. In an effort to keep everyone healthy, we will ask you to utilize all that room: let’s spread out and keep at least one meter away from everyone.
Thanks for all your help. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
A customer had a bad experience at Daikoku today. I’m still reeling from the interaction myself. It was due mostly to the fact we were talking two different languages: they equate potency to quality, whereas I see them as two distinct elements.
In light of this conversation, I thought I would go over the various comments I hear and read about the legal cannabis market in Canada:
On May 24th 2018, we signed our lease on the premises that would become Daikoku.
Today, almost a full year later, we’ve officially (re-)opened – we’d been selling accessories since January 2nd – and have started selling cannabis. It’s a lot of emotions to process, but the one that I feel the most is gratitude.
“The nose knows” – so goes the saying. While “terpenes” (the compound that gives cannabis its smell) are fairly “new” when people talk about cannabis, enthusiasts have known for a long time that if you find a smell you like, odds are you’re going to enjoy the effects. Obviously, this isn’t foolproof. Enter the science of terpenes.
