Walmart Canada Is Now Carrying Cannabis Vaporizers

Once I heard that Walmart had begun selling cannabis vaporizers, I drove to the closest location at St. Clair and Runnymede in west Toronto. What can I say? I love seeing medical cannabis make its way into mainstream consciousness.

But after scouring store shelves, I came up empty-handed, and finally asked the pharmacist for support.

I wasn&rsquo. “We don’t have anything like that here. ”

As it turns out, Walmart stores likely will have something like that, just not quite yet.

Walmart’s product page describes the $699 vaporizer as “a rapid and secure delivery method of cannabinoids.

2 Storz & Bickel versions are already available online: the Health Canada-approved, classic Volcano Medic Vaporizer ($699 CAD) and the more portable Mighty ($499 CAD).

Cannabis Goes Mainstream

Walmart hawking vapes is really not that surprising. The large box chain carries an affordable rosin press south of the border–we know, because we bought one.

And, ahead of legalization, Bloomberg News reported that the company is exploring the potential for applying to sell actual cannabis products in Canada’s post-prohibition era.

“As we would for any new business, Walmart Canada has done some preliminary investigative on this problem, but we do not have plans to take CBD products at this time,” spokeswoman Diane Medeiros wrote to Bloomberg.

Costs Have Yet to Rollback

The Volcano is famous for its precise temperature controls that allow for certain terpenes and cannabinoids to be vaporized. Since the flower doesn’t really combust in a vaporizer oven, health specialists often recommend medical consumers avoid smoking and choose vaping or edibles instead.

Each Walmart model comes with the base, five balloons (which you fill with vapour to inhale from), a filling room, a set of screens, a cleaning brush, a liquid pad, a set of air filters, instructions, three clips, and a cannabis mill to grind flower.

The pocket sized Mighty is a slightly simpler mechanism, but is still made for gadget lovers: in addition to the vape, you get an adaptor, a couple of added screens, a set of seal rings, a liquid pad, a filling aid, an herb mill, a dosing capsule, a cleaning brush, and instructions–that’s a great deal of little pieces to lose around the home, but them’s the vapes.

But why buy from Walmart? The answer is usually for that low, low cost. But at $699 and $499, these vapes are barely priced competitively–not yet, at least!
