Yukon Weed Delivery
Yukon (no longer officially Yukon Territory or the Yukon) is the smallest, westernmost, and least populated territory in Canada. The population of about 36,000 is actually the smallest of all provinces and territories; despite this, it does not have nearly enough brick-and-mortar stores to serve all the potential customers. Customers in the territory can turn to the wide selection of strains and cannabis products at the THC Collection!

Cannabis Culture In Yukon
Before the 2018 legalization, Yukon had one of the highest rates of cannabis use. 21% of Yukon adults surveyed had used cannabis in the last year, compared to 14% of Canadian adults. While most of the country focuses on the larger provinces and the evolution of their cannabis regimes, Canada’s territories have remained somewhat under-reported. Although over 350 federally licensed cultivation and processing licenses have been issued across Canada, none are in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, or Yukon.
That’s not to say there isn’t a growing crowd of enthusiasts. Among respondents to a pre-legalization government survey, 81% supported legalization, with 75% finding it socially acceptable to smoke in public. There’s even a small, friendly competition called the Yukon Cannacup: participants received a germinated cannabis seed, and they had to produce the best healthy plant by the end of the summer. To serve this budding customer base, though, the territory planned to have only one government-owned physical store in the capital city of Whitehorse. Those living in more distant communities must rely on mail-order marijuana (MOM) services.
What's Yukon Known For?
Like the two other Canadian territories, Yukon is well-known for its natural features. Here, you’ll find Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan, in Kluane National Park and Reserve. This park is also known for its glaciers, hiking trails, and the Alsek River. Further north is the Ivvavik National Park, which protects the calving grounds for Porcupine caribou. Of course, Yukon is romanticized in song, poetry, and literature for the Gold Rush. Thousands of prospectors moved to the territory in search of gold, with their work commemorated in the stories and poems of authors like Robert Service and Jack London. Of course, Yukon has faithfully preserved much of this history, and today, you’ll find eight historic sites in the town of Dawson City alone!
While in Dawson City, tourists should check out the real mummified human toe in a bottle of alcohol at the Downtown Hotel. Join a club or brave drinkers by trying a Sourtoe Cocktail, drinking the concoction and touching the toe with your lips.
We shouldn’t forget the capital of Whitehorse, a beautiful city full of history. If you’re visiting, make sure to check out the Yukon River Loop Trail. From the Miles Canyon, the Trail winds north past the Whitehorse Fishway fish ladder toward the S.S. Klondike, a restored sternwheeler that once steamed down the Yukon River.
What To Know Before Buying Bud In Yukon
The legal age to buy or possess cannabis in Yukon is 19. The territory has relied on federal regulations for penalties for offences such as impaired driving. The territory is overhauling its Motor Vehicles Act to strengthen administrative sanctions. The government is also still in the process of deciding amounts of fines for illegal consumption and possession.
Smoking will not be allowed in most public places, with the government allowing for “the potential to allow consumption in other spaces in the future.” It is permissible in private residences, adjoining properties, and rentals, though landlords and property owners can restrict cannabis possession and use in lease or property agreements.
Customers should note that, because of the remote location, orders to Yukon through Canada Post’s Xpresspost service can take several days longer to reach the destination.
