Trees has deep roots in the Vancouver Island craft cannabis industry. We believe that artisanal cannabis is a cornerstone of our local BC communities and economies, and that it provides life-changing benefits to our customers. With seven stores, we serve Victoria and Nanaimo. Our expert budtenders provide a welcoming environment for both first-time customers and connoisseurs alike. With everything, from compassionately-priced strains to quads, rare landrace strains, and elite concentrates, our island grown products are sure to satisfy every type of customer.


Q: Why did Trees close down all of their branches?
