Canadians have a complex history with cannabis. Over the years, the public has been forced to reevaluate preconceptions surrounding the plant, and fortunately many countries have come around to decriminalizing and supporting the distribution and manufacturing of cannabis. When we opened our flagship store in 2018 we had one goal in mind: promote the healing and therapeutic benefits of cannabis.
As we expanded to our current 5 locations, we began to design our in-store experience to be a safe, welcoming environment that made sure seasoned users and those new to cannabis felt cared for and confident in their purchases.
We saw the benefit in developing long-term relationships with our customers, whether they enjoyed it recreationally or medicinally. Every Oneida Organics dispensary is run by our team of provincially certified Budtenders who are experts in all things cannabis. Our continual learning programs help keep them informed on the latest trends and topics related to Cannabis to give them the confidence to interact and help tailor our customer experience regardless of someone’s background or previous marjiuana experience.
It’s an unfortunate reality that Indigenous populations in Canada suffer from substance addiction at much higher rates than other ethnicities due to systemic and historical racism, economic difficulties, and a lack of available mental health resources. At Oneida Organics, we want to educate and demonstrate what a healthy relationship with cannabis can offer and, at the same time, uplift our indigenous communities.
In the past, Oneida Organics has:
- Hosted and organized a semi-annual food drive for the Oneida Food Bank
- Hosted a Christmas toy drive for foster children
- Contributed to local children’s sports & arts programs
- Contributed to local festivals
- Sponsored local MMA and Boxing events and semi-professional fighters
- Supported the Residential Schools Survivor Society and the national inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indegnous Women
