Victoria is set to welcome two brand new cannabis retail stores before the end of the year. If you’re new to cannabis, wanting to try it again, or are a long-time connoisseur, there are now so many different options available that it can be overwhelming to know where to start or which new product to try.
Finding a cannabis shop that caters to what you’re looking for and with knowledgeable staff who can help you find the right product can be challenging. Enter Jima Cannabis Co!
Jima Cannabis Co had its origins in BC and continues to live up to its reputation for excellent product and knowledgable staff with two new locations coming to Victoria, one downtown on lower Yates Street and the other on Douglas, near Hillside Avenue. Jima’s experienced staff work hard to provide quality products with an individualized, community-focused approach that reflects what the customers want — all in a one-stop shop.
A quality product, and quality experience, too
THC and CBD get a lot of press in the cannabis retail scene and they sure can’t be disregarded. But ensuring that what you buy is what you were looking for is important, and it starts with having a team of staff who know every aspect of their products.
“Educated and knowledgeable staff is important for making sure that our customers have the best possible experience,” notes Jima’s Allison di Tomaso. “Our bud tenders know the products from top to bottom.”
Part of knowing your bud is understanding terpenes, an integral part of the experience.
Terpenes are compounds found in many plants that give a distinctive scent and are an important part of the cannabis experience. Ranging from citrus to mint to pine, the aroma produced by these aromatic oils can add to the cannabis experience. Limonene is refreshing and zesty, and smells like its name sounds, giving off a citrusy scent. Pinene is fresh and bright, evocative of pine needles, while myrcene is earthy and warm like cloves.
