21 days - 3 weeks for OCS Order

Canada-Seal.jpg

OCS finally delivered my original order placed on October 17th when cannabis was legalized.
It took 3 weeks (21 days) for my original order to arrive.

I placed a second order last week, which arrived in only 4 days, a day before my original order came, so it looks like the initial backlog is clearing up, and new orders are being sent out immediately.

Half-joint / half filter, half gram stubby pre-roll and packaging


Other than a few brands in resealable pouches like "UP Gems", most brands employ too much packaging and waste, or have bulky child proof containers. The single pre-roll could have been sent in a single dube-tube instead of all this additional packaging.

This could reduce shipping charges and delays, by significantly reducing packaging size, and
lowering the overall costs associated.

There are a few brands available, with resealable zip-lock pouches and pre-rolls in tubes, that don't employ all the bulky packaging, and hopefully over time, other producers will come to their senses, and reduce the amount of waste produced, passing on the savings to their customers.

All the samples received were okay, nothing to write home about, but they weren't sh*t.
The counts were decent, the quality average. The joint was okay, as funny as it looked, it burned well and tasted alright.

I'd have to rate the SYMBL Dreamweaver and the Edison pre-roll as the best 2 of the bunch, with a close second to the UP Gems. The rest were okay, but the Liiv didn't burn well, and the San Rafael was alright but rolled a bit less than the others due to stalk and retaining it's moisture.

I may order a few more soon, just to try them out, but so far this failed OCS experiment has done nothing but increase consumers reliance on the thriving craft cannabis underground market.

Mailorder only plus delivery charges, long delivery times, bulky packaging and waste, and no discounts on bulk orders with fixed gram prices straight up.

In the end, this only proves the point that the government has along way to go in opening up the craft cannabis market to the entrepreneurs and industry experts to allow the evolution of the industry, with further deregulation and elimination of obstacles caused by all their red tape.

Meanwhile reports that Canada is running out of cannabis are false.

The government may be running out of "legal" supplies, but Canada has more than enough cannabis to go around, and as always, we don't need the government to tell us where to find it.


Sorry, eh

That’s crazy... I order from Mykush.ca
and they take 1 day. Free shipping for orders over $150

Do an unboxing review... do you have a digital scale to weigh them ? I heard that many 1 gram flowers were less than .9 gram

·

I didn't weight them, but they were all basically a gram.
I would have done more of a review, but I've been too busy lately.
Needless to say, both orders were finished off the same day I received them.

Ha ha... no doubt.

Crazy amount of packaging, that single half joint's packaging is so overboard, lol!

·

All of it’s over packaged 🙄 the site your supposed to go to doesn’t even advertise pictures of the weed 🤦‍♂️ Just the packages...

·
·

At least you know they haven't tampered with the product then at least? 😂

Lol I guess, personally get from close friends or other growers so this never seems to be a problem. The “black market” is full of old time growers who I support and will definitely continue to support as long as our system is a tax grab and money gouge.

My experience was very similar. Hopefully things get better once more privatized locations are allowed in April!

Yup lol I ordered one gram just to see what it would be like. It took 17 days and was not nearly worth what I had paid.
