We’ve all been there. You just stopped to top up your gas tank, but figured that since you’re there anyway, you might as well pop in and pick up a can of Red Bull. And some gum, because why not? Maybe a bag of chips. And one of those tree-shaped air fresheners. Oh, and some weed. Definitely some weed.

Okay, so you can’t actually purchase cannabis at gas stations—not even here in the Great Green North. We’ll file that one under “pipe dreams”. However, Canadian cannabis retailer Fire & Flower has brought it one step closer to reality.

The company owns and operates cannabis retail shops in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and the Yukon under the Fire & Flower, Friendly Stranger, Happy Dayz, and HotBox brands. The company also sells gift cards through third-party retailers.

Fire & Flower says share the gift of weed

On January 25, Fire & Flower announced that these third-party retailers now include almost 300 Circle K locations in Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. So, no, you can’t buy weed at your local convenience store or gas station. You can, however—as the press release states—”share the gift of cannabis in a convenient way”.

“Fire & Flower gift cards reflect our continued investment in our relationship with our consumers,” said Trevor Fencott, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower. “Each gift card represents a sincere moment of connection between our customers and someone who is close to them. Our commitment to digitally enabled and convenient retail experiences is an important part of our strategy as a tech-enabled, differentiated brand retailer.”

The gift cards are available in denominations from $25 to $100. They are redeemable at any Fire & Flower location as well as online
