Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

The Northwest Territories (NWT), covering a large land area in the North of Canada east of the Yukon territory, is the second largest of the three territories of Canada. The Northwest Territories has a population of just over 43,000, almost half of which are Aboriginal. The largest urban center and capital is Yellowknife, with approximately 20,000 people.

The NWT is situated above the Arctic Circle. For three months in summer, sunlight is almost continuous. In winter, however, darkness sets in and the light of day is barely seen for a quarter of the year. Climate in the Northwest Territories can be challenging. While in the south, summers are mild with long days, winters are bitterly cold with short days. In the North the cold is even more extreme.

Smoking weed in NWT

The Northwest Territories Liquor and Cannabis Commission (NTLCC) regulate the distribution of alcohol and cannabis in the Northwest Territories.

People 19 and over can buy cannabis at most NWT Liquor Stores. The NWT Liquor & Cannabis Commission’s website is the only option for purchasing cannabis online in the NWT.

Cannabis use is restricted to private property and is prohibited at public events and in public spaces used by children. Unless municipal governments introduce bylaws to expand on areas where smoking cannabis is prohibited, residents will also be permitted to smoke cannabis on trails, roadways (when not operating or riding in a motor vehicle), and parks when not in use for a public event.

Why buy weed online?

Although the use of cannabis is a little more lenient in the Northwest Territories, there are limited areas where smoking cannabis will be permitted. The same prohibitions and rules that apply to non-medicinal cannabis users will also apply to medical cannabis users.

Discover Northwest Territories

So you’ve just received your fresh goodies, and now you want to explore the NWT, refer to our list of the top tourist attractions:

Nahanni National Park Reserve

The remote Nahanni National Park Reserve is one of the treasures of northern Canada. Here the raging Nahanni River flows through the stunning canyon scenery of the Mackenzie Mountains. The South Nahanni River also tumbles over the 90-meter precipice of spectacular Virginia Falls, creating one of the most impressive waterfalls in Canada.

The Rabbitkettle Hot Springs, which give life to a rich landscape of rare plants, are another sightseeing attraction in this immense national park. As tempting as it would be to take a dip in the hot springs, the fragile nature of this beautiful natural attraction means you can only visit.

Great Slave Lake

Great Slave Lake is the deepest lake in North America (613m) and the tenth biggest lake in the world. So how do you experience something so huge? How about a fantastic stoner activity like a plane ride? Floatplanes fly in and out of the lake, and offer breathtaking views of the region. Or maybe by boat? Rent a kayak and paddle the shoreline, or opt for a larger boat and go fishing for lake trout and pike. Maybe you’d prefer to snowmobile? There’s ice on Great Slave Lake for eight months of the year, and during much of that time you can cross the water via snowmobile.

Northern Lights

You can’t really talk about the Northwest Territories without mentioning the Northern Lights. This natural phenomenon, sees the bright reds, blues, greens, and yellows dance and shift across the night sky. The Northwest Territories provides some of the best (if not THE best) aurora borealis viewing in the world. When the sky is clear, wrap up, sit back, look up, and enjoy one of the greatest shows on earth. What better way to experience it than to pairing it with a high from your goods you ordered from Weed Cargo! Rent out a lodge, cabin or teepee in the wilderness so you can enjoy the lights in style. Ski, dog sled or snowmobile to a particularly clear spot and make an activity out of it. Or look through your window and marvel at Mother Nature.
