Hey, bud! Nice of you to stop by! We’re Rosebud Cannabis, an adult-use cannabis retailer located on the east end of Camrose, Alberta. We’re a little different than the ‘other guys’ in town, so let us tell you a bit more about ourselves! Unlike most cannabis stores around here, we’re locally owned and operated. Like, for real. We graduated from CCHS, played hockey at the Old Rink, and still remember when the water tower was the tallest building in town. Our families have been in town for generations, and our experiences growing up here have informed everything about the Rosebud experience.
Uber Enters Canadian Cannabis

Uber is leveraging its existing ecommerce infrastructure and will now allow users in Ontario to place orders for cannabis on its Uber Eats app.
Tokyo Smoke will be the first retailer to trial the service as part of limited rollout and Uber Eats users can now use the existing Uber Eats app to make an order at the nearest Tokyo Smoke store on its marketplace.
To be clear, users will only be able to order for pickup from store.
This shouldn't come as a surprise as there have been rumors of Uber making its entrance into the cannabis market for some time now. While some believed that the American delivery giant would wait until federal legalization in the U.S. prior to making its entrance, after three years of Canadian legalization it could no longer resist the lucrative move.

Canada’s 4 largest cannabis markets in order of size are Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, and British Colombia. While Uber has declined to comment on any potential expansion into other provinces... well I'll let you assume the rest.<...Read More
