We are an independent, family-owned cannabis retailer in the heart of Ottawa. As a family of entrepreneurs with deep roots in the community and a passion for cannabis, we’re committed to three things; bringing the best legal products, providing the best education and creating a fun, friendly and positive environment for people from all walks of life.
Our Budtenders are the heart and soul of our company. They’re the first people you see when you walk into a Munchies store, and they’re on the front lines in our mission for cannabis education. “Destigmatization through education” isn’t just a nice slogan for us, it’s something we take seriously.
All of our Budtenders are CannSell certified and go through our comprehensive, in-house training and education program. Remember, there’s no such thing as a stupid question (especially when it comes to plants). Whether you’re buying for the first time or you’re a seasoned veteran, we’re ready, willing and able to help you find the right product for you.
Anyone can sell cannabis. We want to do more than that. We want you to look forward to coming here. And we think that the typical dispensary – bland, sterile and with little focus on the customer – isn’t something we need more of. Simply put, we’re on a mission – to serve our community, to bring people together, and to end the stigma that prohibition has created. We built Munchies as a place that brings the diverse people of our community together through education, service and a common love of the plant.
Cannabis isn’t a commodity, it’s an experience. We want you to leave with memories as well as merchandise.
As locals who have spent most of our lives here, there’s nowhere else we’d want to open our first store. From the shops to the restaurants, this place is special. It’s the perfect environment for people to come together, and we want to be part of that environment. We truly believe that a rising tide lifts all boats, and we’re here to be a supportive part of the community.
