Over the course of several years, the United States and Canada have experienced some unusual phenomena, all thanks to the presence of the little green herb called marijuana. Since 2016, the mind-altering plant has ascended to the ranks of the stock market, the beauty industry, and even medical research. Who would have thought that you could buy cannabis mascara or receive marijuana for cancer treatment? You may not be surprised to hear that Walmart, the king of retail, has finally started introducing marijuana paraphernalia into its long list of products. So what new item has the cannabis community stirred with excitement? Let’s take a quick stop up north and see why Walmart Canada has started carrying marijuana vaporizers.
Ironically, the retail monster Walmart has advertised its plans to sell vaporizers and does not currently carry these items. So, you can imagine the looks of confusion on hundreds of Canadians’ faces when they marched into stores and received this message from pharmacists. Nevertheless, Leafly reported that stores have started selling two Storz & Bickel models: Volcano Medic Vaporizer ($600 CAD) and Mighty ($499 CAD).
Strangely, though, Walmart vaporizers are nothing new. The corporation also offers a reasonably priced rosin press (at $299 per item). Even more interesting, Bloomberg News has revealed that the Canadian division is considering the possibility of selling actual cannabis, in lieu of the official legalization of the drug on October 17, 2018. However, Walmart spokeswoman Diane Medeiros announced that the company has to conduct some more “fact-finding” on the prospect of carrying marijuana and, for the time being, will not be carrying CBD-infused products. Canadians will have to visit dispensaries and producers to acquire products in the meantime.
Low Prices and Health Benefits
While many Canadians are (of course) looking forward to the classic “low prices” offered by Walmart, the two pieces of dabbing and smoking equipment have still received praise from supporters. Health officials warn that smoking (obviously) is harmful to respiratory health, so vaping or edibles (offered through the famous Volcano) are a better alternative. Likewise, the small Mighty offers similar options in a tinier package.
