Rest assured that all deliveries sent out from TheHerbalCoast are vacuum sealed to have no smell and have no markings on the outside that reveal the contents of the package.
Keep in mind that within Canada, there are over 300 dispensaries, all of which are NOT operating under the federally-approved medical marijuana system. These dispensaries have been allowed by City Hall and the VPD to proliferate so that people can safely access medicine; so long as there are no sales to minors or any affiliations to gangs.
There are over 40 mail order marijuana sites running in Vancouver, some of which have been shipping weed in the mail since the 90’s. To date, no-one has ever been charged with receiving pot in the mail.
All that being said, please understand that there is still a risk on both ends as we are working without any federal approval which is forecasted to be finalized mid-2018.

- The postal worker put it in the wrong mailbox, or
- What often happens is that a postal worker will scan in all the packages saying they were “successfully delivered” then spend that day and/or the next day delivering it.
If you do not get your package 2 days after the expected delivery date, let us know and we will file a trace with the post office. Canada Post will file an investigation which can take 5 business days to complete. If they can locate the package, they will ship it to you and you will receive it a few days later. If it’s deemed “unrecoverable”, we will send you a one-time replacement free of charge. To be eligible for the one-time free replacement package, you MUST click the “signature required” box during checkout.
From Canada Post
“The investigation involves contacting the addressee to confirm delivery, or to better understand how they receive their mail and, as applicable, if they checked:
with the front desk, security or mail room at the receiving address to see if someone else accepted the item on their behalf;
their Community Mail Box for the item or parcel compartment key;
around their property to see if the item was left in a safe location or in a mailbox attached to their home.
In rare cases, a delivery scan is entered into our system before the item is delivered. If you become aware that the addressee has received the item before we contact you, simply reply to this e-mail indicating the item has been received.”
Please wait until the end of the day and your tracking number should appear correctly. If it does not, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into it.

Sativa and Indica are the two major types of cannabis plants which can mix together to create hybrid strains. Each strain has its own range of effects on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medicinal benefits.
The high produced from smoking Indica bud is a strong physical body high that will make you sleepy or couch-locked and provides a deep relaxation feeling compared to a Sativa high, which is known to be more energetic and uplifting.
Marijuana strains range from pure Sativas to pure Indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both Indica and sativa (30% Indica-70% Sativa, 50%-50% combinations, 80% Indica-20% Sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
Indica dominant marijuana strains tend to have a strong sweet or sour odour to the buds (ex. Kush, OG Kush) providing a very relaxing and strong body high that is helpful in treating general anxiety, body pain, and sleeping disorders.
Indicas are very effective for overall pain relief and is often used to treat insomnia for many people. Indica buds are most commonly smoked by medical marijuana patients in the late evening or even right before bed due to how sleepy and tired you become when high from an Indica strain of marijuana, like Kush.
Benefits of Indica:
- Relieves body pain
- Relaxes muscles
- Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
- Relieves headaches and migraines
- Relieves anxiety or stress
Sativa dominant marijuana strains tend to have a more grassy type odour to the buds providing an uplifting, energetic and cerebral high that is best suited for daytime smoking. A Sativa high is one filled with creativity and energy as being high on Sativa can spark new ideas and creations. Many artists take advantage of the creative powers of cannabis Sativa (marijuana) to create paintings.
Benefits of Sativa:
- Feelings of well-being and at-ease
- Up-lifting and cerebral thoughts
- Stimulates and energizes
- Increases focus and creativity
- Fights depression
Fortunately, shatter turning to budder or wax is not uncommon when exposed to heat, but it does not make your shatter unsafe in any way. In fact, the terpenes and aromatics will be more present if this happens and the flavour will actually be increased.
We do not offer any reimbursement or refunds if your shatter turns to budder or wax.
For every 20 points you accumulate, you will receive a $1 discount that can be used towards any future orders.
