Happy birthday Scorpio! Those born under this sign are often perceptive, passionate, and possess a mysterious allure. Their ability to connect on a profound level and their fearless approach to life inspire admiration and trust in those around them.

We know you love the finer things, scorpions, but month, it’s essential to prioritize necessities over luxuries. A family gathering may be in the cards, bringing warmth and connection. While daily tasks might feel repetitive, approach them with enthusiasm—think of them as stepping stones towards your dreams. An unexpected twist awaits as a secret admirer might reveal their feelings for you. Achieving your dreams will also bring an ego boost. Instead of dwelling too much on financial concerns, trust in yourself and look forward to the joyous moments that the month promises.

The month also calls for a blend of tranquility and joyful movement for your health. Explore relaxation techniques like meditation or deep breathing exercises to manage stress. At the same time, find the value in simple activities, like dancing in your living room, to release endorphins and uplift your spirits. Striking a balance between stillness and celebration is the key to holistic well-being this month.

Professionally, it might not be the best time for a job switch,  and business owners should be prepared for unforeseen shortfalls. Financial constraints might make investments challenging. Job seekers might find themselves accepting positions with lesser pay, but it will benefit you in the long run.

November strain: Indulge in your sweet tooth and dive deep into November’s transformative energies with a “slice” of Cream Pie. This is a versatile strain with many iterations, just like its namesake dessert. Its euphoric, happy, and even arousing effects will suit your personal and social pursuits this month, enhancing your intense and passionate nature. Embrace the month with a strain that’s as creamy and dreamy as your deepest desires.

November is a month of momentum, Sags. Your bonds with friends and family will deepen, providing a strong support system. While your love life might face some turbulence, previous investments will start to bear fruit. Some Sagittarians might also find healing from past injuries, both physical and emotional. Release past regrets and embrace inner peace, but don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Cultivate positivity in your thoughts and steer clear of negative influences. While romantic relationships might present challenges, the connections with your close ones will only grow stronger.

This month, Caps, it’s crucial to prioritize long-term happiness over fleeting moments of joy. Distance yourself from individuals who seem indifferent or unsupportive, and channel your energy towards your goals. Forging new friendships and budding romance are on the horizon. For some Capricorns, this month might be the right time to exit a relationship that’s holding you back. Financially, exercise caution and avoid making significant investments. But for the most part, November is a period of rejuvenation.

Let go of persistent worries and welcome joy into your life. Instead of getting caught up in transient pleasures, find contentment in the small, meaningful moments that life offers.

Your health takes center stage this month, with a focus on nourishing your body with wholesome foods that provide sustained energy. Remember, laughter is a potent remedy for many of life’s stresses, so embrace humor and even indulge in some harmless pranks. Professionally, list your goals and work towards them diligently. For those building new businesses, the winds of change seem favorable. Utilize any free time at work for personal growth rather than idle chatter, and be wary of colleagues who exude negativity.

On the brighter side, this month bubbles with opportunities for reconciliation with loved ones, mending past rifts and strengthening current bonds.

Deep breath, Pisces—November presents a set of challenges on the professional front, especially with job applications, and a cherished friendship might require some extra attention and mending this month. To maintain harmony in your relationships, steer clear of arguments and confrontations and embrace your trademark optimism. While there might be moments of lows, comforting news from a friend will be a source of solace. Keep open lines of communication with those close to you, as you navigate any mood swings, and make an effort to make sure work-related stresses don’t spill over into your personal life.

Your emotional well-being takes center stage this month. Engaging in volunteer activities can be a therapeutic experience, benefiting not just the community but also your spirits. Take some time to identify what triggers feelings of anger and anxiety; recognizing these triggers will empower you to maintain your inner peace and tackle challenges more effectively.

Daily tasks in your career might seem repetitive, but missing even a day could lead to overlooking crucial details—stay locked in. While a colleague’s promotion might be on the horizon, remember that your turn is not far behind. Fresh graduates should brace themselves for potential job rejections but remain optimistic about future opportunities.

November strain: As you navigate this month’s swift currents and deep emotions, remember that all your stresses can roll off your back like water. With its euphoric, uplifting, and munchie-inducing effects, Moon Pie is the perfect celestial treat to align with your intuitive and imaginative nature.

In the realm of personal relationships, November promises to be a lively month for you, rams. Friends may surprise you with unexpected visits, and expect an inundation of event invitations. While social interactions will be abundant, remain discerning. Be wary of toxic relationships that could impede your momentum, and times of doubt or challenge, lean on your loved ones for support.

On the professional front, you might experience feelings of displacement or unease in your current role. However, acting on impulse and making hasty decisions may work against your best interest. Instead, take the time to plan, gather the necessary resources, and work diligently towards your aspirations—without rushing. Remember that external recognition does not determine your worth. Stay genuine and true to yourself, even when faced with challenges from colleagues.

Vancouver weed visitor’s guide 2024

Published

on

By


When I first landed in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a college undergrad, one of my biggest questions, beyond how I would make friends in a new country, pick my major, and currency conversion rates, was where was I going to find weed?

Thankfully, Vancouver has been a big weed city for a long time, and British Columbia has a reputation not unlike Norcal’s Emerald Triangle—they don’t call it B.C. bud for nothing! Over 5 years into federal legalization of adult-use cannabis, Vancouver and (most of) Canada have built on the infrastructure of the medical/legacy days to offer consumers a wide variety of products and strains from both national, government-owned brands to family-run micro-growers serving their local communities. 

Next time you’re in Vancity, you’ll know where the dank is. Let’s go!

What are Van’s weed rules?

If you aren’t quite old enough to patronize a dispensary in the States, rejoice! Adults 19+ can legally frequent adult-use cannabis dispensaries, and possess up to 30 grams (or the equivalent in edibles, vapes, etc) while out and about. At home, you can grow up to 4 plants and possess no more than 1,000 grams of cannabis and derived products. 

Vancouver, like the Big Apple, allows public cannabis consumption …

Best of all, Vancouver, like the Big Apple, allows public cannabis consumption wherever tobacco smoking and vaping are allowed, with exceptions for parks (there are designated areas), playgrounds, public buildings, and near bus, train, and ferry stops. If your hotel allows it, you can also smoke in your room.

Canada Cannabis 101

Vancouver B.C. has many dope spots. An excerpt of the Leafly map. (Leafly)

Excellent question! Vancouver is a big city with upwards of 80 dispensaries within the greater metro area. In the city proper, most walk-in stores are concentrated downtown; you can take a ferry to North Vancouver for a few more options. Most stores offer delivery services, and you can order cannabis on UberEats the same way you would a breakfast burrito.

Because Canada’s cannabis legislation is federal, dispensaries have two tiers. There are BC Cannabis stores run by the government under the province’s British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch, and there are privately-owned stores. The BC Cannabis stores offer better prices and wider selections from brands based all over the country; privately-owned stores may have more store ambiance and local options from craft growers.

Shop highly rated dispensaries near you:

Delivery

A number of dispensaries across Vancouver offer pick up and delivery options to adults 19+. You can also order weed for delivery and pickup on UberEats from select dispensaries. Start a Vancouver delivery.

If you’re fresh out of YVR, you can head to Dutch Love on 8602 Granville Street, or  La Canapa up the street on 8002 Granville Street.

What is some good weed to buy in Van?

Shopping in a Canadian dispensary is a little different than the States—your weed can be from Ontario or Quebec or Newfoundland. I opted to stick to local BC cultivators with one Ontario exception. Here are six of the best buds I sampled.

How to order weed delivery online with Leafly

I am high, what do I do now in Van?

For Van’s best weed attractions, go to:

  • Stanley Park
  • The downtown Art Gallery complex
  • The Amsterdam Cafe
  • Bloedel Conservatory (North Vancouver)
  • Vancouver Aquarium 
  • Pacific National Exhibition, aka The PNE, Playland amusement park (May–August)
  • A ride on the Seabus ferry
  • A Skyride gondola ride to the top of Grouse Mountain (North Vancouver)
  • Skiing and snowboarding at Grouse Mountain (North Vancouver)

Spotlight: Amsterdam Cafe

While smoking in public is now allowed, not everyone wants to light up in a smoking section, and Vancouver winters can be brutal. As of writing, dispensaries cannot host consumption spaces. But one of the most iconic North American smoking lounges is still kicking in Downtown Vancouver: the Amsterdam Cafe.

This is a one-stop shop for a comfortable, discreet sesh–the main floor hosts a full-service cafe with food and beverages. A $10 membership fee gets guests access to the lower-level lounge during the day, and the main floor in the evening. Bongs and rolling kits are available for rental. 

For Van’s best stoner munchie food, get:

  • Tim Horton’s, the (better) Dunkin Donuts of Canada.
  • White Spot
  • A&W, which is not only a root beer brand but an entire burger chain that rivals the American juggernauts McDonalds and Burger King.
  • Mello Donuts
  • La Belle Patate, for a wide variety of Canada’s best munchie food, poutine. 
  • Cactus Club Cafe

How Canada’s West Coast Became World Renowned for Cannabis Cultivation

Vancouver weed visitors frequently asked questions

What’s up with the weed lounges?

Unfortunately, dispensaries can’t yet get permitted for consumption lounges—yet. But the Amsterdam Cafe at 301 W Hastings Street, and Cannabis Culture next door both have discreet and stylish smoking spaces for locals and visitors. 

What does federal legalization mean for me and my shopping experience?

It means lots of options, mostly. You aren’t beholden to just your province’s selection of flower, vapes, edibles, or concentrates. I recommend chatting with your budtender, and doing research ahead of time; sometimes out-of-province products are older, or your local store won’t have the full selection. 

Can I bring weed into or out of Canada?

This is a BIG no no. Just because weed is legal at the federal level, it is illegal to cross the Canadian border with it or fly with it. So smoke it while you can, or leave it with a friend before you head home.

America’s top weed cities of 2024 announced

Published

on

By


America’s tens of millions of stoners need not endure unequal access to their life-saving medicine and safer alternative to alcohol. They can vote with their feet for some fine cannabis cities, or stay to fix the terrible ones. Right now, all across the US, Americans enjoy widely different levels of weed freedom.

Real Estate Witch’s website computed the top 50 best weed cities in America, and the differences speak volumes. Denver, CO ranks No. 1. Louisville, KY ranks dead last. Below, Leafly presents some highlights and picks from each spot.

No. 1 Denver, CO

John Denver wasn’t kidding! The Mile High City defends its name with a first-place finish in the stoner city rankings for 2024. I mean, it has a fricking Mile High 420 Fest. Colorado legalized in 2012, and today a mature cannabis industry competes to serve the highest-quality flower and extracts at the lowest price. Denver has nearly four times as many shops per capita as Los Angeles, and the top-shelf ounce average price there bucked inflation, falling $1 in the last year to $242 per ounce. Whether it’s fine dining, shows at Red Rocks, stunning trails, or killer art, Denver delivers for its irie residents and visitors. We can’t wait to visit again.

No. 2 Portland, OR

Leafly smokers are in love with Oregon’s world-class growers and their extract scene. From Archive, to Decibel, to Left Coast Standard to TrueCare Farms, Oregon has the juice! It sports the Northwest Cannafest, a crazy specialty in GMO Cookies, and even balanced CBD strains.

See all of our Oregon stories to smoke like a local.

No. 3 Las Vegas, NV

Sin City aims to corner the market on turnt-up cannabis fun. Las Vegas offers legal tree from the second you land. There’s kiosks in the airport, and the cabbies will drive you straight to da club. Combo that cannabis with a trippy visit to The Sphere, some tasty food, and so much more. The cherry on top: Las Vegas’ licensed cannabis smoking lounges are finally opening up. Read our Las Vegas weed visitor’s guide.

No. 4 Buffalo, NY

According to Whitney Economics, just 4 percent of New York smokers consume licensed cannabis. That’s a failure. But not in Buffalo, NY, where locals—including indigenous communities—charted a speedy path to tons of stores and literal tons of cultivation. That’s how you get safe access and do the will of the voters. Buffalo outranks New York City—ouch! Go Bills!

No. 5 Baltimore, MD

Special Sauce in a jar at Baltimore’s Charm City Smoke Fest (J.M. Giordano for Leafly)

American cannabis regulators don’t want to learn from their competitors in other states. But we can still beg them to study Maryland. which canna-balled into adult-use sales in 2023 with a smash success launch. Existing medical growers bulked up, stores flipped from medical to recreational, and supplies never ran dry. May the speedy reconstruction of the Francis Scott Key Bridge inspire us all.

It’s so great to see this big desert city flower into a cannabis capital. Phoenix has a huge amount of large-scale indoor cultivation bringing down prices. Its regulators did a savvy job of spreading clubs around the state, and getting city buy-in with the carrot of tax revenue, and another special incentive. Cities that ban stores must allow home-growers.

No. 7 Seattle, WA

Shout-out to all the amazing breeders and growers of Washington: From Exotic Genetix, to Torus, to Artizen to Freddy’s Fuego, Phat Panda, and Constellation rosin. The party is on Bainbridge Island this 4/20!

No. 8 Sacramento, CA

The world doesn’t know it yet, but Sacramento is going to run away with the weed bag. Killer indoor ships statewide from California’s capitol—Alien Labs, Amplified Farms, Natura, Seven Leaves, and so much more. SacTo is perfectly positioned between the foothills, the mountains, and the coast—with water, power, labor, and affordable land. Locals enjoy fine cannabis at fair prices from plentiful stores, and combine it with tasty eats, trips to the Sacramento River, and the mountains. Go meet your legislator with California NORML May 8, and demand ‘Deli-style.’
