Hunny Pot Cannabis Store Review

My visit to The Hunny Pot Cannabis Store Review and Tour in Photos

So I made the decision to visit the opening of Hunny Pot Cannabis this morning, it was quite the experience and was interviewed by the media 4 or 5 times today while waiting and inside the store.

I hit the subway at about 7 this morning, having no idea how many people would be already lined up. All I knew that it was early for me as I headed to 202 Queen Street West.

7:30 am – Nobody there, I was 5th in line!

I got off the subway at around 7:30 am and was amazed that nobody was basically there. Media had reported that people had stayed the night in a tent (they were there) and there were only 4 people waiting in line.

The Media Shows Up

As we got closer to 9am, the media from just about every major outlet started to show up. I did 3 interviews while waiting with a bunch of reporters.

Here was one of the first reporters from the CBC on the scene, I did an interview with her just before entering the store

Selfie with Caryma Sa’d

I got a selfie with Caryma Sa’d, she’s a well know lawyer in the cannabis space and was all over the news for being the 1st in line and staying overnight.

Doors Open… Identification Please

While in line, I told a few people to have their ID ready to show.. They laughed and didn’t believe me. Sure enough the doors opened at 9am and they asked for ID from everyone!

Inside the Store: Checking In and Pairing up with a Personal Budtender

Once inside, they essentially register you so you can’t order more than 30 grams. Not a perfect system, there is also some controversy about giving your personal details. After registration, you are paired up with a budtender where they walk around the store with you and answer any questions you have while shopping.

The Store Experience

Hunny Pot looks great, it’s modern and well laid out. It’s a little overwhelming as there are so many choices in terms of cannabis you can buy and that’s where the budtender really helps. You can see each strain, you can smell it and it’s a much better experience than buying from a website. My only suggestion is to make the displays a little bigger so you know what you might want to buy.

Checking out and buying your weed! Everything is digital

Your budtender will stay with you the whole time, they enter anything you want to buy into their iPad until you are satisfied and ready to pay. Then they take your name and place the order for you. You walk down the stairs to where they have all the product and you pay for it. Really simple process

What was the lineup like after I got out?

There wasn’t really that many people outside after I finished up, maybe a couple of hundred in line..

Final Words about Hunny Pot Cannabis

Despite not having a ton of time to put this all together, I think Hunny Pot did a great job. The store looked great, the staff was energetic and friendly.. Couldn’t ask for more and would go back again in the future!
