We created an online experience that makes it easy to find and buy cannabis products, complete with thorough descriptions and filters that let you easily customize your search.

Once you’ve made your purchase, you’ll find many delivery options to suit your needs (and you can make a return if you’re not satisfied). Find out more about cannabis delivery, including ordering cut-off times, shipping fees and delivery areas.

Choosing products

Use the search bar to find specific brands, products, formats, cultivars (also known as strains) — whatever you’re looking for. Our filters help you easily narrow down your search by THC and CBD content, terpene profile, plant type and more.

Buying products from the OCS

No account is needed to make purchases, although your billing and delivery information is required to ship your order. You will also be asked to verify that you are at least 19 years old to confirm your purchase.

Cannabis shipping limits

As you shop, our system tracks what you put in your cart, keeping you within the allowable 30-gram limit.

Paying for products

We currently accept the following debit, credit and prepaid payment cards:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Amex

Cards from other providers (international or domestic) are not accepted.

Receiving your order

On delivery day, you’ll receive three text messages about the status of your order.

  1. The first message will confirm your delivery window.
  2. The second message will let you know when your driver is about an hour away. You can respond to let them know about any special delivery instructions.
  3. Finally, you’ll get a third message to let you know the driver is just five minutes away (have your ID ready!).

How to accept a delivery

Anyone who is 19 years of age or older may accept your order, as long as they show valid government-issued photo ID.

  • Same-Day or Express Delivery: You will need to be home to receive your order and show valid government-issued photo ID that proves you are 19 years of age or older to the delivery driver. If no one is home to accept the order, the driver will reattempt delivery within the next one or two days (excluding holidays). If you miss the second delivery, your order will be returned to the OCS Distribution Centre and you will be refunded.
  • Canada Post Xpresspost Delivery: Show original valid government-issued photo ID and sign for the package. If no one is home, the Canada Post delivery agent will leave a delivery notice card with instructions for pickup.

Returning products

Cannabis products in their original unopened condition may be returned within 14 days of purchase. Accessories are final sale and cannot be returned. See our return policy for more information, or contact the OCS Customer Contact Centre at 1-888-910-0627.
