Why do I need to acknowledge my age? Why do you ask for ID to get into the store?

We want to keep everyone safe. Part of that is ensuring that youth have no access to Cannabis. That's why only adults 19+ can enter our site and stores.

What constitutes a valid government issued photo ID?

The following types of government issued photo ID will be accepted at Cannabis NB retail stores and by the delivery company upon delivery:

  • Provincially issued driver’s license,
  • Canadian Military ID,
  • Passport, or
  • Any other valid ID specified by regulation.

It is against the law to use a false identification document or an identification document identifying any other person for the purposes of providing proof of age, or to lend an identification document to any other person for the purposes of providing proof of age under the Cannabis Control Act.

How much can I buy?

By law, you may only purchase a maximum of 30g of Dried Flower Equivalent per order. Learn more about Dried Flower Equivalent here.

How do I save a product for later / to my favourites list?

When viewing a product on the website, you can click on the ‘Add to Wish List’ button and it will be saved to your Wish List. You can access your Wish List list through My Account.

How long will it take to receive my standard shipping order?

Orders received before 2:30pm are expected to arrive the next business day. If you ordered after 2:30pm on Friday, your order should arrive Tuesday (or the next business day thereafter, in the case of a holiday weekend).

(Note: This covers approximately 90% of customers, but for 10% their order should be expected within two days)

Do I have to be home to accept my purchase? 

No, you don’t need to be home to accept delivery of your purchase. Someone else living at the same delivery address who is 19 years or older can accept the delivery on your behalf. Anyone accepting a delivery will need to provide proof of their age using a valid government issued photo ID.

If the delivery company is unable to successfully deliver your purchase to someone who is 19 years or older, the undelivered package will be held for pickup at a designated pick-up location. Cannabis NB will issue a refund to customers for any products not successfully delivered after the designated 5-day waiting period (a restocking fee may apply).  

Can I cancel an order with standard shipping?

No. Once your order has been submitted, you cannot modify or cancel it.

Cannabis NB reserves the right, however, in its sole discretion, to cancel any order, in whole or in part, for any reason, at any time prior to shipping, without notice.

Why does the THC and/or CBD amount on my product label differ from the range displayed on cannabis-nb.com?

As a natural product, THC and CBD content in cannabis may vary among lots of the same strain. THC and CBD ranges shown on cannabis-nb.com are provided by federally licensed cannabis producers.  Cannabis NB works directly with the licensed producers to continuously update the THC and CBD ranges listed on our website, however, it is possible they may differ from the level specified on final product packaging.

When looking at a list of products, why are some occasionally "featured"? 

Some products may from time-to-time be featured, or prioritized on the “Default” sort setting, because they have been selected to be highlighted by Cannabis NB. This may be done as part of a merchandising program, funded by the product supplier, or simply at the discretion of Cannabis NB.

Why do I get redirected to my “Profile” page when trying to purchase?

If you are getting redirected to your “Profile” page, within your “My Account” section, it is because you have fields that must be completed before you can finalize your purchase. Please fill in all fields on your “Profile” page, then click on “Security questions” from the visible menu. You also will need to have at least one security question & answer completed.
