Kitsilano’s own Evergreen Cannabis Society is set to become the first licensed private cannabis retailer in Vancouver under B.C.’s new provincial cannabis laws.

The retail cannabis store, which has operated as a medical marijuana dispensary for the past three years, is located at 2868 West 4th Avenue.

Evergreen Cannabis Society was set to unlock its doors December 29th but delayed its grand opening until January 5th because of holiday timeline issues at city hall.

It is set to begin sales at 11:00am on Saturday.

Co-founder Mike Babins told the CBC that he is “very, very excited” for Saturday morning.

“We went through all the stuff with the city for three years and now we spent the past four months going back and forth with the province and they were asking us every single little detail about our lives,” Babins said.
