These 5 Edmonton cannabis stores stand out among the dozens

Fire and Flower Cannabis Co. Rice Howard Way

Located in the core of downtown Edmonton, this location, at 10141 100a St., serves a diverse crowd, said Isaac Watson, Fire and Flower’s vice president of operations. It’s a small, but efficient space, around 1,500 square feet, but it stocks a hearty line of goods. The location regularly serves people working or living downtown, and people who want to enjoy the restaurants, events and natural spaces (where permitted), Watson said.

Strainbows Cannabis

Located just northwest of downtown at 10573 114 St., Strainbows Cannabis‘ yellow storefront offers a pop of colour into an otherwise fairly beige road. Inside, the shop is equally vibrant, with multicoloured lights playing off a clean white surface.

The business’s website offers a blog where new-comers can learn some of the finer points of cannabis consumption and science. The store’s staff are also incredibly knowledgeable about the topic, and the store is itself proud to be a local business. Strainbows also comes well-reviewed on sites like Google, Leafly and Weedmaps.

NUMO Cannabis – Oliver

Last Canada Day, NUMO opened its Oliver location at 10235 124 St. and new customers were greeted by what company founder Daniel Nguyen calls the “infinity forest.” The entryway to the shop — which has two sister shops around town — is an art installation, created by Vignettes, a local art and design group.

The installation uses real birch trees and other plants and mirrors on all four walls to create a trippy experience before customers enter the store proper. “Cannabis is a plant grown like any other,” he said. “[The infinity forest] is a space for people to step back into nature.”
