Zed's Weed Walk of Victoria: The HIGH-lights!

Zed's Weed Walk of Victoria: The HIGH-lights!

Oct 17, 2018 at 09:28 am

Now that the smoke has cleared around legalization, we figured no time like the present to put together a few suggestions for a laid-back weed walk. On this walk (or short drive as it were) you’ll discover a few local providers, who are still open even under the new rules.  What rules you ask?  Privately owned weed shops are not government approved, just say’n.

What is approved, are the great places we picked out to cure a bad case of the munchies and perfect spots to press the chill button.

Don’t forget to mosey up to the hotel’s front desk and ask for your FREE Zed Hotel “High Five” commemorative pin. (Psst! Chilling in Kelowna? Check out that guide here!)

Trip the Light Fantastic: On the Dispensary Trail

Trees – Island Grown: This artisanal dispensary is located directly behind us on Alpha Street.  These folks focus on sourcing high-grade weed products from all over beautiful Vancouver Island.

Gulf Island Organics: This locally owned dispensary is on Fort Street, providing “gulf-grown” organics. A solid walk or a quick car ride to secure supplies BEFORE you get started.

Lotusland Cannabis Club: A quick 8 minute car ride from here, Lotusland is a BC-based chain that carries a wide selection of high grade marijuana products.

Top 10 “to-dos” on the Weed Walk

  1. Stroll the Galloping Goose Trail which you can access right behind the hotel and follow the trail across a wonderful trestle to Bamfield Park to pause, reflect and view the world at a slower pace.

  2. Read. Stop in at our favourite book haunt, Russell Books.  Be forewarned, you might not surface for hours!


  1. Munchies? The Ruby, a New York style rotisserie joint open until 3 pm, is conveniently located in our lobby!

  1. Thrifting. OMG, do not miss Value Village, it’s huge! And The Patch on Yates Street.  Need more?  Just ask, there are tons.

  2. Eat. Did I say FOOD TRUCKS? Check them out behind the Royal British Columbian Museum.

  3. Walk. Take a walk on the wild side along Dallas Road, hugging the ocean. Check out Canada’s best off-lead dog park, almost as pet friendly as us!

  4. Meander. Visit the petting zoo and the gorgeous Beacon Hill Park. Look out for the cute baby goats, and keep your eyes peeled for the resident peacocks!

  5. People-watch in Bastion Square or of course the Inner Harbour.

  6. Fill the hunger gap at The Flying Otter, located in the Inner Harbour.

  7. Drink. Wet your whistle at one of the many breweries in town – Phillips, Driftwood, Hoyne and Moon Under Water, just to name a few! Walk along the water to Spinnakers, Canada’s oldest brewpub.

  8. Go cheap for some quick grub at El Furniture Warehouse on Yates, where every food item is $5.95 – you heard us!

Or, go nowhere at all.
