Leafly Pickup Launches at Select Cannabis Stores in Canada
Kind of like ordering take-out from your favourite local restaurant or going grocery shopping via click and collect, there’s a new way to ensure the cannabis products you’re looking for are in stock in-store before you set out shopping.
Leafly Pickup has officially launched in the North making Canada the first country to offer the service outside the United States, which launched last year.
Leafly Pickup will initially be available at Spiritleaf’s Alberta and Saskatchewan stores, including new flagship locations in Calgary and Edmonton. Additional retailers will follow in the weeks and months to come.
What is Leafly Pickup?
The free service allows consumers to browse the menus of participating cannabis retailers, reserve products online, and then pick up and purchase products in-store directly from the retailer.
“Leafly Pickup is the latest example of how we leverage technology to solve business issues in the cannabis value chain—specifically, by increasing consumer access and the appeal of the legal market,” said Jo Vos, Managing Director, Leafly Canada. “We’re proud to launch this new feature with the fantastic team at Spiritleaf—just in time for Canada Day.”

Where is Leafly Pickup Offered?
Spiritleaf locations in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, as well as, in Brooks, Lethbridge, St. Albert, Calgary (Stonegate), and Edmonton (Argyll), Alberta, are among the first to offer Leafly Pickup and will soon be joined by cannabis stores in Calgary (Beltline) and Edmonton (Old Strathcona) which are opening this week.
Leafly’s launch of Pickup with Spiritleaf comes as Canadians prepare for the first summer long weekend since cannabis legalization. A recent survey* commissioned by Leafly revealed that 21% of adult Canadians, or more than 6 million Canadians, are planning to consume cannabis during the Canada Day long weekend.
