Starbuds Canada Opens First Recreational Cannabis Store

Starbuds Canada, an independent corporate cannabis retailer, is pleased to announce it is bringing its education-based retail cannabis experience to the Alaskan Highway Region, with the opening of its retail location in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. The retail location is the first to open under the Starbuds Canada brand, with several others in various licensing phases in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.

“We’re excited to bring our education-first approach to cannabis to Dawson Creek,” says Dave Martyn, President and Co-Founder of Starbuds Canada. “From what we’ve seen across the country, more access to retail cannabis storefronts is the best way to beat the black market. We’re happy to provide Dawson Creek with safe, regulated access to cannabis and look forward to opening more locations across British Columbia in the future.”

Martyn says this retail location represents an important step in Starbuds’ projected growth strategy to become the leading cannabis retailer in Canada. As part of that strategy, the company has multiple licences underway for retail shops in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, with plans to expand into Ontario as lottery restrictions ease.

Starbuds' first British Columbia retail location is at the Dawson Mall at 19-11000 8th Street in Dawson Creek, and is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
