Mississauga residents looking for a new go-to cannabis dispensary that isn’t too far outside the city may have just found it with The Woods Cannabis, which is tackling the issue of lackluster legal cannabis in Mississauga with their sommelier-certified menu of high-quality products.
Located just on the border of Mississauga and Brampton at 5 Montpelier St (near the intersection of Mississauga Rd and Steeles Ave W), The Woods specializes in a range of premium cannabis and cannabis-related products. They’re open every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., staying open longer than you’d expect from most other cannabis retailers.
The popular cannabis store is owned by Mississauga residents Eric Velez-Chua and Justin John, who noticed that Mississauga didn’t have access to premium, safe legal cannabis – and set out to change that, wanting to give back to the community that raised them.
The Woods delivers a refined experience in everything they do, and it shows even with their interior. Step inside the store and you’ll find beautiful lush wood finishes, gold trim, and a rich colour palette expressed all throughout. The store also features a CBD wall with CBD products for every type of preferred consumption method.
The Woods’ goal is a simple one: To provide accessible, premium quality cannabis. Amidst a sea of lackluster legal cannabis, The Woods’ menu focuses on quality instead of quantity, with all of their products being certified for quality by cannabis experts and sommeliers – even inspecting the cannabis under a microscope to ensure product integrity! Their offerings include Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and CBD in a variety of consumption methods: Flowers, rolls, edibles, vapes, beverages, oils and more.
“Every product sitting on our shelves has to have been tried, tested and approved by at least one team member, and the majority pass through a stringent review process,” says The Woods team.
As for pricing, The Woods follows a very simple pricing model – they price below the OCS to the nearest $0.99 and $0.49, allowing consumers to try the best cannabis on the market at a lower price.
Whether shopping in-store or on their website, The Woods goes even further by offering specific product recommendations based on what kind of marijuana experience you’re looking for, whether you want to go out and be active, unwind and relax, or even go for an intimate experience.
The store also features a range of smoking accessories and merchandise for the modern cannabis user, with products from top fashion houses such as Versace and popular streetwear brands including Supreme and Kith. Their marijuana gear includes high-quality pipes, bongs, lighters, gravity bong hookahs, wraps, grinders, cones and much more.
In addition to their selection of premium marijauna and accessories, The Woods acts as a one-stop shop with numerous valuable services that you won’t find from many other Ontario dispensaries:
- Cleaning Service: Glass accessory cleaning with a 1-2 day turnaround. The Woods promises that your bongs, rigs, pipes, and even vapes will be returned like they’re brand new.
- High-tech accessory rentals: Customers can rent expensive, high-quality accessories that are also professionally sanitized, such as a Stüdenglass gravity hookah or a Volcano vaporizer.
- Cannabis Consultations: Consultations with cannabis experts like Chantel Phillpotts (@TheMasterOfMarijuana) to educate on cannabis usage in accordance with Health Canada.
“Elevating your cannabis experience starts with the tools,” says The Woods. “From making the cutting edge of cannabis technology accessible through accessory rentals to ensuring your tools are serviced with a white-glove glass cleaning service, we are uncompromising in our mandate of bringing the best to our customers.”
