News Article in St. Catharines Standard

Although cannabis stores have been legal and present in most cities in Ontario for about 5 years now, a lot of people haven't been inside one.
As a horticultural hotspot in Canada, cannabis culture has always existed in Niagara. Our goal isn't to hide the shady corners of the city. As Niagara's locally owned and operated retail stores, we want our region to know that we're thankful to be here… and we care.
We are not corporate entities infiltrating every corner of the country. We are Niagara owned and operated by contributing citizens of our community. Encouraging a fun but responsible cannabis culture in our hometown. 

That's why we're especially happy to have an opportunity to spread our message in the media.

14 Barrels of Food Donations Collected

Can you believe it? Together we managed to collect 14 barrels of food donations for Feed Niagara 

Where do these donations go? They are distributed to the food bank system within the shop's community. In St. Catharines and Thorold donations go to Community Care. In Welland, donations go to The Hope Center. In Fort Erie donations go to The Salvation Army and in Niagara Falls, donations go to Project Share. This way each store's donations will be distributed more directly to the city that the store is in. More than anything else, we want our efforts to have a meaningful impact on our community. This is a better path to accomplishing that.3

Returns GRAND CHAMPION of Niagara Canna Cares | Take Off Cannabis | Thorold

Every year we like to reward the dispensary that collects the most donations. 

Last year, TAKE OFF CANNABIS in Thorold took home the GRAND CHAMPIONS crown and we're not surprised to see that they're keeping that crown in 2022. 
With 3.5 barrels of food donation, Amber and the team at TAKEOFF have done an amazing job, again! Congrats 😊
