Drake chooses Brampton instead of Toronto as the location of his first cannabis pharmacy


Drake opened its first cannabis dispensary, but in a surprising location: Brampton instead of Toronto.

The place is called Bullrider Cannabis and rapper Drake opens it with OVO co-founder Noah “40” Shebib.

The shop is decorated with artwork by Kwest, including behind Drake album covers, and steel fittings sculptures.

“Bullrider exists for and because of continuous improvement. It has helped people do more and feel better,” the Bullrider site said.

“At the heart of Bullrider is the convergence of street art, hip-hop and a limited range of premium cannabis products.”

The website notes that the company is also based in Toronto, but the flagship store opened at 67 Selby Rd. in Brampton and only offers deliveries to Brampton and Mississauga.

“Brampton fits our cannabis farmgate model so we can grow and sell locally. It’s also close to the major centers of Mississauga and Vaughan, both of which have no retail cannabis presence, ”Bullrider Cannabis chairman Max Zavet told blogTO.

“Toronto is coming soon. We’re excited to bring one of Canada’s most iconic strains, Afghani Bullrider, straight from harvest to retail.”

Check out their menu and they have the full range of cannabis products including flowers, pre-rolls, vaporizers, concentrates, edibles, topicals and accessories.

Bullrider is a subsidiary of Robes Inc. and is owned by 40-year-old Drake, industry veteran Maxim Zavet, and entrepreneur Lorne Greenberg.

Special guests Kwest and DJ Skitz will be present this Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the grand opening ceremony. Ozzy’s Burgers will also be making food, and there will be specials and giveaways in the stores.
